Love at Last Sight by Kerry and Chris Shook

I have to admit that I was excited to read this book to find out what practical advice it gave to deepen and strengthen all relationships in life.  Upon reading it, I found myself disappointed in its content. The premise is that you read one chapter for thirty days and then answer some thought provoking questions after.  So for example, one of the chapters talks about thinking "Outside of the Box" and how a man once arranged that after his passing his wife would still continue to receive flowers.  Then, at the end of the chapter it asks you to do an out of the box action with someone in you life.

And while this book is chock full things we should be doing daily I felt like I had a preconceived notion that there would be things I had never thought of in this book. So, in essence this book is a read to remind us what we need to do to keep our relationships strong. We need to remove obstacles such as Facebook, we need to make the first move rather than waiting for our spouse or that we should never keep score. So, if you feel like you could use some reminders in how relationships should work then this book is for you. Otherwise, just take some time to revisit what key pieces make relationships work and you will have the main points of this book.  I give it 3 out of 5 stars.

*I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
