HASH(0x9677466c) out of 5 stars Wonderful book 6 Sept. 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Marie Cadant is a widow who discovers that her little boy was switched with another at birth. She tracks down wealthy Peter Hallock - a widower who has her bioligical son and is the father of the boy she has been raising as her own. They marry for convenience because they each love both boys and feel it best for the boys. This is a terrific book! I really loved it! Much interaction between Marie and Peter. Not too sad, but has some humor and good times in the story line. A "keeper" that I will read again in the future.

HASH(0x962240cc) out of 5 stars Too short but a keeper 4 Sept. 2006
By Maryann Anderson - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
My only complaint about this and other Love Inspired books is that they are too short. I would like to have spent more time with Peter and Marie and their sons, Ricky and Luke. Peter and Marie took what was a real tragedy and turned it into something beautiful that enhanced their lives and the lives of their sons.

I think Ms. Hake showed real insight when she showed how Marie wanted to have a relationship with Luke, who was her biological son but at the same time at first was threatened by Peter's desire to have a relationship with Ricky, who was his biological son. For the sake of her son she was able to overcome this jealousy but the acknowledgement that she experienced it, even briefly, added to the credibility of this story.

This book did not delve as much as I would have hoped into the dynamics of "blended" families and was not "deep" reading but I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it and that is why I read...for enjoyment. Guess that's why I don't give two hoots in Hades for what the "experts" say in their reviews and why I don't care what Oprah recommends or what makes the Bestseller list.

I am hoping there is a story about Sandy in the near future and that her book also gives me another glimpse of Luke and Ricky! This book is a keeper!

HASH(0x967ed69c) out of 5 stars "Mixed Blessings" by Cathy Marie Hake 31 July 2008
By Jesusgirl77 - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I LOVE THIS BOOK! This is a beautiful story! There is so much emotion and feeling in this story that I could hardly put it down! I love the way Hakes writes about the charaters thoughts, feelings, and prayers. As a mother myself, all I could think about while reading this book was,"Oh my goodness, how would I feel if I found out that, after 3 years, I had nursed,raised,and loved a child that was not my biological son?" That would be so scary because I would want my biological son but, I would not want to give up the son I had raised for 3 years. That's why this book is so beautiful! It is romantic too! You will not be disappointed with this book! If you are a mother(or father) it will tear at your emotions the whole time, make you feel romantic, make you laugh, and show that love truly is the greatest gift. God bless you!

HASH(0x9aa58a14) out of 5 stars Great Read 10 July 2013

I really enjoyed this story. The author did a very good job of taking a difficult situation and turning it into a blessing! I was afraid it would be too sad, but it was very inspirational and uplifting even though they both experienced tragedy. I've re- read it several times since I purchased it.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This story was about two boys that were switched at birth. Though it is a ware occurance, the reason for it happening made sense. At first, Peter saw Marie as a crazy woman who for some reason kept trying to take his son, but when he understood everything changed.

The beginning was a bit rushed. Within just a couple hours Peter had accepted the truth - it was almost immediate and I wasn't comfortable with how quickly it happened.

The middle was great, though Marie DID get on my nerves. It seemed she wouldn't work with Peter at all. I felt sorry for Peter, who didn't have much of a choice except to try to get through to Marie. But after thier marriage of convenience, things really started moving along.

The ending was a bit cheesy - especially the "I have your son" part...But it was all good.

There was a side story about Marie's sister who had been inured in a surfing accident and about a tragedy that had hit Peter's family when he was a kid. There was also a salvation as a result of all that had happened which only added to the story.

I give this story five because it deserves more than a four, but I'd have to take away a little because of the rushed beginning and the cheesy ending...

My favorite parts was Peter calling Marie "Sweetheart" and "Honey." I thought that was totally sweet. I also loved how he took her shopping. What a sweety!
