On the day of her university graduation, Kaylan Richards stood at the crossroads of her future She could choose a safe and secure route, work at her family s dance studio until she begins her internship and gets her certification She would be near home and family Or she could take the road less traveled, making a decision to follow the Lord s leading in a completely different direction That would take her to Haiti as a volunteer for six months putting her recent training to use in a challenging [...]

    2. Everything I ve been reading lately involves characters who maybe grew up knowing the Bible but want nothing to do with it now till something causes them to rethink their stance SHAKEN, pun slightly intended, shook things up by having characters who are saved but then they face tough life issues that have them questioning faith it makes the story relatable and avoids being too preachy I thoroughly enjoyed this book and loved the usage of a real life event to make the story real The hope and he [...]

    6. Kaylan Richards just graduated from the University of Alabama and is ready to start her adult life just not in the way her family anticipated She did not expect her biggest regret, Navy SEAL Nick Carmichael, to be in attendance when she made the announcement that she was going to Haiti with her friend Sarah Beth instead of pursuing a career as a dietician Nick had chosen the military over her She is willing to give him a second chance, however, as she sees a vulnerability in him that did not exi [...]

    7. Shaken is a Christian romance novel I thought this novel would be mainly set in Haiti and show the struggles they deal with, but only a third of the book occurs in Haiti and much of the detailed description was of the earthquake and the immediate aftermath Since I ve read some nonfiction about what Haiti is like, I was confused that problems like AIDs were never mention in the novel, especially as the characters were giving medical care to bleeding people.I also had a hard time getting immersed [...]

    8. Shaken is the debut novel from Kariss Lynch As such, it is a little of what you d expect from a first time author perhaps a little stiff stylistically, the characters a little too good but there are a lot of positives that kept this reader turning the pages Lynch s passion for her subject and the excellent research create a really good book I expect really good things from Kariss Lynch in the future.Kaylan is a new college graduate set to change the world She goes to Haiti with her best friend, [...]

    9. Great read after the first few chapters prepare to be quickly swept up in Kaylan s story It s one of those books you ll get sucked into quickly, and spend every free minute reading until you re done As someone who s seen Haiti first hand, Kariss did a great job doing the country s history and turmoil justice as well as showing how God so often uses someone s time there to shape them into who they were meant to be.This is a great read if you re looking for an entertaining story that skips the cra [...]

    10. First off let me start off by saying that the book is broken up into 4 parts and so I wanted to break up my review into the same four parts, however the whole book is just that good I didn t want to do that I feel like I would be taking the book apart to much In first Kaylan and Sarah Beth BFF graduate college a semester early and decide its there turns to take on the world, well at least Hati, so Kaylan has the daunting task of telling her parents her plan, but before that can happen her past h [...]

    13. I love Christian fiction, but this book started out like a eutopia of how our lives and families should be as believers Every character believes and every aspect of their lives is lived on their belief in God, even the teenager It was too rose colored as very few live that way though we all strive to Then the girls go to Haiti and we start to see faith questioned, especially after the earthquake and return home, which made the rose colored picture of Christianity real with the hard question of [...]

    15. I cannot express enough how much I loved this book Kaylan is one of the most endearing characters I ve read this year My compassion for her multiplied with every page My heart ached when hers ached When she lost herself, I lost myself, too It s rare to go on such an emotional roller coaster ride with a character, and it was thoroughly enjoyable.I liked how Nick moved in with purpose from the beginning of the book He was loyal from the beginning, so we didn t have the typical tension of whether o [...]

    17. A bit slow to start, it took me a while to finish But I m glad I did Pride and Prejudice was the same way, so that s not really a terrible thing Once things sped up, I was engaged in the characters, wanting Kaylan to grow and heal from her trials I liked how even though it s a Christian book, the characters aren t perfect, which makes them real.
