    One Reply to “Finding Pride”

    1. Ms Sanders has an interesting plot and likeable characters. It's a shame this promising novel is flawed by far too many spelling errors, sentence fragments, and comma splices. Even a character's name is spelled several different waysDerrick, Derek, etc. The word "cloths" is used repeatedly when "clothes" is obviously meant. There's no excuse for this kind of proofreading errors. This reads like a very tentative first draft. I hope Ms Sanders can find several good proofreaders to catch the gramma [...]

    3. The plot follows a generic romance formula, with Megan getting out of an abusive relationship. Unfortunately for me, making a point of how alone she is (parents died when she was young, and raised by her brother) was forced. When he dies, she is immediately enfolded into his neighbors family, and is attracted to one of them.Sadly, it just feels like she left a physically abusive relationship to jump into another relationship that has the same beginning hallmarks. The author has Todd's family mak [...]

    4. Megan Kimble lands in Pride, Oregon to attend her older brother's funeral and plans to remain there until she figures out what's next for her. It doesn't take long for her to be embraced by the people of the town and the Jordan siblings, especially Todd, who is immediately drawn to her. Megan is just out of an abusive marriage and is still wearing the evidence of that brutality. My rating for the book has nothing and everything to do with the story. I'm not usually very picky about grammatical e [...]

    5. ★★★★ Finding Pride by Jill Sanders (The Pride Series Book 1)I was given this book as a R2R in exchange for my honest opinion.Re-read: I Just completed a re-read of Finding Pride. I loved it just as much this time, if not maybe even more. Now that I've read the series and part of the next series, I find Pride even more charming. Where can I book my reservation for the B&B? A nice little stay there would be perfect. Original Review: 5.12-13.13So, I know the saying goes, "Don't judge a [...]

    6. (Holy monkey! What an awful editor this author has! I'm usually a bit lenient when it comes to the editing issue. I can put up with a lot to get through a great story, but good gosh, this was awful!)After reading the blurb, I was excited to start this book. One of my favorite plots is the one in which the heroine has been beaten down by life, finds true love with a hero who deserves her love & trust, and she gets her HEA. It didn’t take me long to see we had another case of insta-love with [...]

    7. Tot timpul am apreciat stilul in care Jill Sanders scrie,si o sa o fac si cu aceasta ocazie,pentru ca aceasta catre chiar mi-a placut.Modul in care descrie personajele,peisajele pitoresti,simplitatea oamenilor sau dialogurile toate fac ca,cartile ei sa-mi placa foatre mult. Nu pot sa nu observ ,si in cazul de fata,comunitatea orasului Pride.Simplitatea si ospitalitatea lor ,modul in care interactioneaza,faptul ca se ajuta intre ei,si "ca tin unii de altii",sunt lucruri pe care eu le apreciez la [...]

    8. I enjoyed this book, Jill is obviously a very good story teller and the tale rattles along at a good speed without veering off course. The main characters are flawed, but believably so, and there is much merit in the way they fit around the more minor characters in the book. I got a strong sense of the relationship that Megan shared with her brother, which was an enviable one and well defined. The relationship with her ex-husband is well described and I was left in no doubt as to why Megan behav [...]

    9. This was a free download. I only managed to read 2 chapters before I had to quit. The editing was so horrible my left eye started twitching. Grammatical and typographical errors, poor sentence structure, etc. Even grade school mistakes like "a oak". No. Just no.

    10. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.Finding Pride is the first in a series which will revolve around the lives of the residents of Pride, Oregon. This book is the story of Megan, who arrives in Pride to bury her brother who has died in an accident. He has left her his house and property, which he was in the process of turning into a B&B and cabin rental. Megan is fleeing from abuse and feels that she will be able to make a fresh start with the down [...]

    11. I spent a weekend reading this novel, and although I'm not a fan of the romance genre, I found myself reading frantically to the very last page. A well developed plot and characters to care for, Finding Pride tells the story of Megan Kimble, escaping her past and trying to begin a new future. Megan has a heartbreaking backstory, and you pull for her any chance you get. I really like the message of starting over and getting a second chance in life. The negatives are that the book is in need of so [...]

    12. A lot of "romance" in this one. Ya' know what? Some things are just left better to the imagination.metimes less is more.The story itself was pretty good. Biggest complaint: feelings were restated too many times. I know that's how the mind works.ing things.but you don't want to read it that way.I did enjoy the characters for the most part. The author was successful in getting you to keep turning pages but the character development was a little flat. However, I did enjoy the story well enough that [...]

    13. The original premise of the story intrigued me enough to want to read it. I liked the mystery in the beginning of the tale, the setting of Pride, and the set of characters. However, the grammar and spelling errors were overwhelming. I have read other stories that had similar grammar/spelling mistakes, but since the story flowed well I could look past it. It was not okay to forgive those mistakes in Finding Pride as it seemed like it was skipping too fast through time (or sometimes appeared to do [...]

    14. Sanders’ serene descriptions draw you into this quaint little town while keeping with the mellow feel of her writing. Sanders also works some phenomenal illusions into her writing, giving you hints and peaks at things without ever actually mentioning them. I got so wrapped up in the stellar storyline that before I knew it hours had passed and I hadn’t put the novel down. That said, there were definitely some spelling and grammatical issues to contend with, but overall this was quite an amazi [...]

    15. First of all, this book needs proofreading to correct the numerous typos and grammar errors.After finishing this book, I have rather mixed feelings about it. For the first 40% of the book, I quite enjoyed reading it. The description of the town Pride is heart-warming, and I liked the way in which the characters were introduced.After this first half, however, I didn't like all the (oh so predictable) drama: the pregnancy, the ex showing up cookie-cutter cliches. What upset me most was the charact [...]

    16. WHEN I FIRST STARTED I THOUGHT HERE I GO AGAIN ANOTHER SERIES, WHY DO I KEEP DOING THIS? AS I READ I FOUND HEY! THIS IS ALRIGHT. I LOVED THE WAY THE AUTHOR INTRODUCED YOU TO THE CHARACTERS AND THE TOWN AND IT'S RESIDENTS. YOU WERE SLOWLY DRAWN INTO THEIR WORLD, LEARNING EACH ONE AND WHERE/HOW THE TOWN OF "PRIDE" LOOKED AND FUNCTIONED. AS YOU CONTINUE YOU FEEL YOU REALLY START TO KNOW THEM, I COULD ACTUALLY SEE THEM JUST LIKE I WAS WATCHING A MOVIE. THE MAIN CHARACTERS TODD & MEGAN GROWING AN [...]

    17. Megan and Todd I loved them together I loved how they sort of used each other as anchors to get over a hard bump in the road and then turning into something more, together these two are just perfect, "Megan laughed and ran her hand up and pinched his butt. "you are a hard person to wake." Todd he's naturally protective but with Megan that goes into overdrive, "hospital," he said and set her gently in the Jeep. "Damn cops and ambulances take too long." He put her seat belt around her. "Tell them [...]

    18. This is the 1st book I read by Jill Sanders. This book started off sad. My heart broke for Megan. I liked what Megan did in memory of her brother. I thought Megan was very strong for all she been through. This story was an okay free story to read.

    19. So, this book was not exactly easy to finish. It's not big but it occupied a lot of my time. I feel sad, but it just felt so boring to me!Again, the idea is interesting, I like this notion of starting again in a small town, but the characters weren't done in a way that made me like them. They were simply ok, I guess. The writing seemed to lack some consistency. And now, at the end, the main couple saying "I feel I've loved you from the moment I saw you" when their relationship is everything but [...]

    20. *This book was provided to me in exchange for an honest and unbiased review*I wavered a little as to whether to rate this book 3 or 4 stars. I'd like to go down the middle at 3.5 but ultimately I had to choose and it came down to whether I would read the next book in the series (btw it seems to be a companion series, there was no cliffhanger or anything). The answer was yes I would, so I've bumped up to 4.For me this was a book of two halves. The first half I found almost painfully slow paced. I [...]

    21. I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.This is a debut romance, first in a series, and while it was a solid effort overall, it didn’t wow me.The book starts with the leading lady, Megan, as she attends the funeral of her brother Matt. Matt lived in Pride, a small town at the coast of Oregon, and Megan has inherited all he owned, including his house and cabin-hire business in the making. She now has to decide whether to stay in Pride; a decision which her neighbours [...]

    22. “Finding Pride” begins with an ending -- a funeral in Pride, Oregon, for the brother of main character Megan Kimble. Megan is a wretched, battered woman fleeing the remnants of an abusive marriage. All her life she has been beaten up physically or emotionally, learning to trust no one besides her loving brother -- but Matt can no longer be there for her. The town of Pride is everything and nothing that Megan expected. Matt’s enormous circle of friends and admirers rush to fill the void he [...]

    23. Megan Kimble’s life had never been an easy one. Having been raised by her older brother when her parents died, they moved often never really settling in one place for long. When she fell in love when she was in college, she thought that she would finally have someone that she could settle down with but life isn’t always that easy. After years of being abused by her husband, hiding it from her brother as well as everyone else, she had finally broke free. She was going to visit her brother as [...]

    24. The first book in The Pride series by Jill Sanders. Megan Kimble came to Pride, Oregon, for her brother Matt's funeral and hope to start a new life. She was in an abusive marriage but is now divorced and looking to find a place for herself. The people of Pride welcome her, especially the Jordan family. Todd Jordan is a widower and was Matt's best friend. He was head over heels the moment he set eyes on Megan. But Megan isn't ready for another relationship.It really wasn't a bad read. Nice, cute [...]

    25. This is a story about a young woman who has lived a difficult life and who is relocating to a new town. It’s a good story, with detailed and well written characters, with only a few content/technical errors. Unfortunately, the characters failed to draw me into the story. I didn’t feel compelled to continue reading to find out what, if anything, was going to happen. I don't usually read romance novels because I find myself waiting for something exciting to happen and it doesn't, unless you’ [...]

    26. I downloaded this book when it was free on and I'm glad I found it. This book was fun but emotional dealing with loss of a loved one and domestic violence. Megan moves across country when her brother dies, moving into his house and continuing with his dream of creating a cozy, small resort. From the beginning of her new life in Pride, Megan is comforted by the Jordan siblings; Todd Jordan most of all. I liked watching these two characters slowly get to know each other and create a relationship. [...]

    27. The blurb and the theme of the story were what made me start this book. I'm trying so hard to continue but it's just too stupid (the simplest way to put it) for example, "Matt was like a brother to him, not only his best friend, but like he was a brother". There's more where that came from and I've only just begun. It really irks me that this book has more than two stars especially with all the errors that could have been prevented with simple editing. I'm only 11% into this novel and already ne [...]

    28. I loved it. From the beginning to the end I was drawn to the book. Some moments might have been predictable, but I didn't care. This was a very nice book.

    29. Very nice.I could not stop reading it. My cats were a little upset. Their dinner was a little late. I wanted to finish this story.

    30. Family feelingI felt like I really knew the characters in the book. It felt like you were reading about someone that I really cared about
