TAKE TWO (Above the Line Series, Book 2). Kingsbury, Karen. 316p, paper, Zondervan 2009, 9780310266174, $14.99 [FIC]
NCLA Review - Take Two is the second in a four book series. It follows two filmmakers who left the mission field in Indonesia with a dream. They wished to go to Hollywood to make a film containing a dynamic message that would change the world. But what is the cost in family relationships due to the hard life of film making? And what kind of energy does one need to take on the movie industry? While the plot is admirable, this reader was left dangling. Nothing was concluded and there was little reader satisfaction. This is apparently because two other books in this series are due out this year. Fewer books in a series with a more complete message would be welcomed. Rating: 2—JD ( )

I saw this book as a bridge to the next one. I thought each book would be about making another movie, but they only let out the last one and didn't even get to start on the next one. There were some good outcomes with Cody and Bailey making up as friends and Kelly starting to turn her life around at a women's conference. ( )

Chase and Keith have just finished their first film and are excited and pumped about how God is working. Bailey, Tim, Andi and Cody are finishing their 1st year at Indiana University. All of them have lessons to learn and some of them are learning their lessons the hard way. Will Chase be able to keep his marriage together? Will Bailey, Tim and Cody figure out who Bailey should end up with? And will Andi learn the hard way that living in the world and leaving God out is not a good decision. Very real to life issues and struggles. Karen Kingsbury, as always, does a real good job of dealing with lots of issues and making her characters real people you feel as if you really know. ( )

Take Two finds the producers in great demand after the success of their first film but their personal lives are taking a hit because of the success. Also, this book continues its focus on the Flannagan family, especially Bailey and Cole. Can't wait for Take 3 to come out to see how this series ends. ( )
