    1. If Only by T.K Chapin is a marvellous Christian thriller I just could not put it down Everything that T.K Chapin writes is fabulous but this story tops it all It really was an edge of your seat ride that had me guessing from the start The action twisted this way and that throwing out a few red herrings along the way.The novel is written in two different time periods and in the first person from two different viewpoints There is a clear defining moment where the action is then before and after al [...]

    2. A serious book about the second guessing you d make after something tragic happens to your child It takes us between two characters the mom Elizabeth and the daughter Lilly Lilly s chapters are from before the big event and the mom s chapter s are during and after the event The author kept the story from getting redundant and kept me guessing what was going to happen and who to blame for what was happening, which is great in this kind of book I had several guesses that weren t the right ending, [...]

    5. InterestingThis book has a rather interesting subject Broken family, enraged daughter, long distance relationship gone bad and teen pregnancy Add into that a runaway daughter and already you have a good mix but then it gets betterever at one point, close to the end so it didn t ruin the book, I did realise what was happening.

    6. The concept of this faith based story wasn t bad a mother learning to trust God in her darkest moment when her daughter goes missing It s told from the perspective of the mother after the daughter is missing, and also from the daughter s point of view in the months leading up to the girl s disappearance But, the writing was rough and could have used a professional editor to get rid of obvious flaws.One scene in the beginning of the story bothered me When the mother learns her daughter might be p [...]

How many of us look at the past and think If only Maybe we don t think about it in exactly that manner but we still can see those choices and decisions we made and wonder what results a different decision might have made This story has a good helping of if onlys The mother especially is plagued by second guessing her past decisions and struggles with her current dilemma Alternating from the mother to the daughter, the author presents the story as it unfolds from the mother s current perspective [...]

Seeing all the highly rated reviews on this book make me wonder if we read the same story.I did like the the final plot twist even though I saw it coming ahead of time But there is so much wrong with and not to like about this book I understand this is fiction, but there are some glaring reality issues with the story A few examples 1 A divorced woman with two teens will not be able to move to a new town, live in a house, go out to eat twice a week, have two cars one for the 16 yo , and support t [...]

    12.

    17. Our lives can be filled with If Only s If only I hadn t said that If only I had done that Author TK Chapin s newest book has its main characters looking at life from an If Only standpoint Filled with suspense, mystery, and strange neighbors, If Only kept me on the edge of my seat I really couldn t put it down, and honestly, this is not my typical genre to read Clean and contemporary, God s grace and mercy is woven throughout the story as a family attempts to put their lives back together and mov [...]

    19. I really enjoyed reading If Only , it was a VERY quick read once I sat down with it As a single parent I could identify with Elizabeth, the mom, and all the struggles she has as to being recently divorced, relocating, and dealing with her kid s unhappiness As a daughter, I could identify with Lilly, because what teenage daughter doesn t hate their mom at some point It seemed to me that Elizabeth had lost her faith a little in the beginning of the book, but had found it again at the end Having th [...]

    20. This book has a way of pulling you into the story I fell in love with the characters and had to keep reading to find out what would happen to them It is well written I did break one of my cardinal rules of not reading a thriller at bed time because I could not just read one chapter I had to finish the book.

    21. I enjoyed reading this book It had the perfect amount of mystery to keep me interested while being based around God and faith I believe this makes the perfect read for anyone who is looking for a light inspirational that isn t preaching at the reader The plot was well thought out and the characters were well developed.

    22. This is another powerful book by T.K Chapin, about a journey a mother makes to find her missing teenage daughter.The mother finds peace when she learns to let go and let God reign in her life.These are all issues addressed in this book, teen runaways, teen pregnancy, homeless, divorce and domestic violence.I recommend this book to everyone.

    23. Heart ache is strong in If Only by T K Chapin The characters were well written but I did not care for how the book shifted between the current time for the mother and then told the daughter s side from a month or so earlier If Only did have an interesting storyline I received my e book from the author This is my honest opinion.

    24. Those feelings connected with being a mom and a daughter are, of course, the most powerful things to readers, like moms I placed 3.8 4 stars This book, however, is not for me but also something good.

    25. If OnlyThis story started out slow, but picked up as it progressed I will admit that I picked it up and put it down several times, I just could not get into the story I would recommend it to others because the topic is thought provoking, raw and relatable.

    26. I was moved by the thoughtful and inspirational handling of the extremely sensitive and widespread issues of divorce, runaways, homelessness and teen pregnancy TK Chapin uses alternating perspectives to provide the reader with an intimate understanding of each character s rationale and experiences The characters and the story are believable and held my interest with unexpected twists and a fair degree of suspense as each character provided their own view of the developing plot Each character has [...]

    27. Most common question we ask ourselvesAnother great intriguing book by my favorite author This one I couldn t figure out before it ended I love how each of his books deals with a deeper walk with Jesus, as work thru the difficult times in our lives.

    28. I was impressed, surprised, and taken in by the story line The beginning had a little bit of a rough start for my preference but I was glad I kept reading Definite good read.

    29. If Only, written by T.K Chapin, is an outstanding book Written in first person with the point of views by Mother, Elizabeth and Daughter, Lilly, we are able to get two views of the book that take us unexpected places Chapin brought a suspense element into this book like he s never done before Throughout the book we read of a relationship between a mother and daughter that needs help As with all of Chapin s work that I ve ever read, he always helps the reader see the way The Lord Jesus can help c [...]

    30. AngstRead the summary and you ll already know this book is full of angst the way the story develops though is quite enthralling and I enjoyed the book.
