    1. Longing is the third book in the Bailey Flanigan series (following Leaving and Learning, with the final book, Loving, due to be published in March 2012). I haven’t read the first two (although I have read all the previous books right back from the beginning of the Baxter Family books), and I found it easy to pick up any details I may have missed in those two books. However, aspects of the novel would probably be quite confusing for someone who has not read the any of the previous novels, as th [...]


    2. I was so excited to get this book in my hands! And NOW I can't wait for Loving in March! I love the characters in this book. I have "watched" as Bailey has grown up and become a wonderful young woman. She shows us that even when things are difficult that God can get us through it. We may not know WHY things are the way they are at the time but if we trust that God works all things for good then at some point we will be able to look back and see how God worked through that situation. I have been [...]


    3. I have been a Kingsbury fan for a while now. I began reading the Baxter series almost 4 years ago. The Baxter series is actually made up of several series including the Redemption series (5 books), the Firstborn series (5 books), and the Sunrise series (4 books) and then moves into the Above the Line series (4 books) and the Bailey Flanigan series (4 books). Longing is the 3rd book in the Bailey Flanigan series. I have also read many of her books that are not a part of this series.The reason tha [...]


    4. Great continuation to the story. I love that Karen Kingsbury is not afraid to discuss serious topics. Looking forward to finishing the series.


    5. I've been waiting (with MUCH anticipation) for 'Longing' and finally I was able to read it! As with the rest of the Bailey Flanigan Series, I was captivated and completely drawn into the story! I read the entire book in one night - it was that good!I've been rooting for Cody, and even though I find myself liking Brandon's character more and more, I'm still hoping that Bailey ends up marrying Cody.'Longing' has many happy, wonderful moments; however, there are also some really sad scenes - so hav [...]


    6. The trouble I have with these books is that they drag on forever. I skipped the book before this and felt like I really hadn't missed much at all. This is Christian fiction and it is heavy on the Christian. I knew that going into it though so I can't really complain. I'm just ready to see this Bailey/Cody/Brandon saga reach a conclusion. I listened to this on a long car drive. I'll pick up the last book in this series to have some closure, but I don't think I'll be reading any more of Karen King [...]


    7. This book is definitely the best of series so far. The writing is not spectacular, but this one doesn't have the "triteness" of the other two, which I personally appreciate. I will say, however, that I'm still not a huge fan of Brandon. I want to like him, but he's just a little too perfect. Having Jesus in your life doesn't mean you change overnight, but that's what seemed to happen to him. I'd like to see him make a few mistakes - make a movie he regrets, be portrayed incorrectly by the media, [...]


    8. RIVETING. Again. Desperate to read book 4, coming this year! I love Bailey, she's such a wonderful heroine! I'm mostly loving Brandon, and have always loved Cody. This was/is a riveting series.


    9. I have mixed feelings about how things are turning out! I loved the book though! Brandon is growing on me & I'm not as mad at Cody anymore.



    10. I was so sure I knew exactly how this series was going to end when I read the 1st book and I was wrong! And normally I like surprises, but just didn't like how this book ended. I read these books when I need something quick, easyd a little cheesy. Didn't really get that with this one.This series has tracked the stories of Bailey and Cody, who fell in love and then mysteriously break up for no particular reason. Bailey graduates from college and moves to N.Y. to pursue her Broadway career. Cody a [...]


    11. Even though Cody and Bailey are dating other people, their story is not yet finished. When life events cause their paths to cross, the two must figure out their lingering feelings for each other. Will they return to their first love or discover that your first love isn't always your forever love?After being disappointed with the first two books in the Bailey Flanigan series, I enjoyed Longing. Bailey finally makes a decision about which man is the one for her. (I won't spoil it for you, but I wi [...]


    12. I read through a couple of other reviews to see if someone would say what it is about this book that I didn't like. The closest I could come to, was someone said there was nothing special in it - it was just a Christian romance. That's kind of how I felt - nothing happens in this book. Yes, Bailey seems to reach a decision on which boy she likes, but even that feels tenuous. And yes, things happen with Cheyenne, but I couldn't help feeling that KK was just doing what she should have done in the [...]




    13. This book picks up where Learning ends. Bailey is continuing to work on Broadway and to develop her relationship with Brandon. They have the incredible opportunity of being in New York together for several weeks as his work brings him to New York. They really appear to be falling in love and spinning off into their own happy ending.Meanwhile, Cody's experiencing great professional success as a football coach. His love life isn't so great as his girlfriend, Cheyenne, is given a horrifying diagnos [...]


    14. A story of people you'll fall in love with. Bailey performing in plays in New York. Brandon a popular movie star in love with Bailey. Cody, a winning coach, also with feelings for Bailey.Each book in this series is packed with emotions, Longing is no exception. I continue to ask the question, "How does Karen write with such depth?" When I find the answer to that question my own writing will improve greatly.I loved the plot, but the characters made the story. They were people I've grown to love o [...]


    15. This one was better than book 1 but less fast paced than book 2 so it falls in the middle. I'm glad that Bailey is finally seeming to grow up and be more adult about her decisions and since she's in her 20's it's about time. I guess knowing that I was making adult decisions when I was 17 doesn't give me much sympathy towards adults who aren't. My only complaint was about a character's death, even for Believer's not every death is a last breath and smile - oh if they only were. I know some people [...]


    16. I'm really enjoying this series by Karen Kingsbury. For me, the mark of a truly excellent series is that while each title can stand on its own, reading them in order is by far the most enjoyable way to get the best out of the stories. This series is exactly like that. I enjoy each book and can't wait for the next in the series.However, I think the author is going to take the next story down a path I may not like - I'm a sucker for the happy ending, and the next book may produce lots of tears for [...]


    17. I didn't like it as much as the first two. Maybe I'm the only one but I'm team Brandon. Cody steps up his game by taking care of Cheyenne but he's a pretty big wimp to have let Bailey go. Contrast that with Brandon who pursues her like crazy. I don't understand why the author seems bent on trying to get me to be a Cody convert. I love what he's doing with the football team but he kind of fails in the romance department. Sorry


    18. I didn't think this book was quite as good as some of her other books. There were places where I pretty well knew what was coming next.I liked the wonderful Christian thoughts and the bible verses. I don't know if I will readthe next book.


    19. I love how Cody and Bailey have grown. The story of Bailey's friends and the Bible Study is an important oneat we can show how God feels about sin, all sin , but loves us no matter what. What an amazing fact





    20. Probably a little less than a 3. This is my least favorite series of the Baxter series. It’s been a struggle to get through them.




    21. Being the 3rd book in the series I've become invested in the characters making this book a definite tear jerker.
