The March dip, as I argued strenuously at the time, was an enormous opportunity. That dip aside, winners generally have kept winning. Investors on the sidelines waiting for a better entry point generally have stayed on the sidelines — and missed out on upside. That pattern might not repeat this time around.

Lane has had her eye on the Creative Director position, and believes this next pitch will be the one that secures it. The call comes to notify Lane that her brother, Nate, the one member of her family who has been loyal to her, has been seriously injured and is in a coma.
Will she drop everything and travel the 3 hours home to Harbor Pointe? A place she so desperately never wants to return to, she hasn't been home in years. This could not have happened at a worse time. Ryan Brooks, raised on the wrong side of the tracks and despite the abuse of an alcoholic father and abandoned by his mother, was rescued by Lane's family as a teenager.
Employed by her father to work in the family store in exchange for food and money for Ryan and his sister Hailey, Ryan slowly became a part of the Kelley Family. Escaping to enlist in the Army, he is now home and putting everything he has into a development of 12 vacation cottages.
His hope is that by providing more lodging options to tourists he can give back to the town that has given him so much. When the motorcycle accident throws him and his best friend Nate Kelley into hospital, he encounters the one person that he has loved since the moment he first saw her. Never imaging that he would see Lane again, he is taken right back. Back to those years when his sole focus was to ease those little snippets of her personality that made her shine, and that she rarely showed anyone.
I loved getting to know these characters. They are so complex, with every raw emotion jumping right out of the pages. Courtney Walsh writes with such a depth of insight into each and every single one of her main characters. She masters this skill so well. Nothing is hurried. Everything is just right from the scene descriptions to the thoughts going through the characters minds. I love the shore of Lake Michigan, and Harbor Pointe is the perfect sleepy in winter, crazy busy in summer tourist town.
The contrast of Chicago, which is a fun energetic city, was perfect. Two sharply differing worlds set against each other, for me there is only one winner - and that would be Harbor Pointe! Utterly unpredictable, I could not put this book down. This was the best story to complete on Valentine's Day, and has inspired me to make this day great. To put down the devices, and truly treasure every single moment. Here is my honest review. Oct 21, Iola rated it it was amazing.
It did. Lane is an interior designer up for a big promotion at work when her mother calls to say her brother is on life support following a motorcycle accident. She returns home, but is immediately thrown into conflict with everyone in her family except perhaps her father, who only gets about two lines in the whole novel. The reasons behind this conflict are gradually revealed as the novel progresses Ryan was also in the motorcycle accident, but escaped with minor injuries.
Now he meets the adult Lane, he realises she has issues, and he might be able to help. Just Look Up was a great title that worked on many levels.
There was the obvious, that we have to look up to see the world around us, to live. Lane spent much of time looking down at her phone that she missed what was going on around her. And the more subtle, the way Lane consciously or subconsciously looked down on herself. It seemed to me that looking down was a habit formed early in her teenage years, where she looked down because of her low self-esteem.
To me, Just Look Up showed the lie that many of us believe in our teenage years. Lane was different to the others in her family—lactose intolerant in a family that made and sold cheese for a living, unattractive and unpopular or so she thought in a family that were attractive and popular.
The result, I think, was a teenager and adult who never understood how precious she was to God, because she never felt she was precious to her family. Overall, Just Look Up is a story about how achieving our dreams might not be everything we thought it might be, but the answer might have been in front of us all along.

Jul 10, Amy rated it it was amazing. Sometimes there are situations in our past that have so affected us that we let them define us. In this case Lane Kelley is relentless in her work drive and to achieve her dream job promotion. However, before any of that can take place, she receives emergency news from home. Her brother has been in an accident and her family wants her home. At first it may seem a bit callous of her not to want to g Just Look Up by author Courtney Walsh was a story that I think that may resonate with many people.
At first it may seem a bit callous of her not to want to go home, but she has pretty much written that place off. As Lane puts her job on hold and rushes home to see her brother Nate, the only one that she knew understood her we get to see snippets of her younger years and what caused such a rift between her and her family that everyone in town seems to love so much.
While home, she gets reacquainted with childhood friend Ryan Brooks who has the fondest memories of Lane. Ryan sees that Lane is tightly wound and he begins to notice just why she may have left home for good for. So many wonderful, thoughtful insights and lessons were woven throughout this book. I really connected with Lane and her drive to be thin and let her work define her, this story touched on how name calling and how bullying can endure through adulthood.
Even what someone may call cute affectionate pet names. When do you need to step back and take a break from work and truly rest was another issue addressed. I liked how the author showed how so much stress can be detrimental to your health. Families are important, work is important, as Lane discovers sometimes you just need to let go and embrace both- faults and all.
I was provided a copy of this book for free from Tyndale Publishers. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own. Jul 02, Sarah rated it it was amazing.
First, I love that Courtney used Michigan in her book. As a Michigander, I just love that and I am a little bias. Second, this book will tug at every heart string you ever through was possible.
You'll go from the small town life to the city life and every where in between. Your heart will break, it will repair and break all over again. You feel as though you're in the town with the characters experiencing the highs "Just Look Up" by Courtney Walsh is another summer read that I am gushing about! You feel as though you're in the town with the characters experiencing the highs and lows. This is one of those books that you can't just put on the shelf and call done.
You'll often wonder what you would do if you are Ryan and faced with the situation he has been dealt with, especially with his father.
And like Lane, can Michigan offer you the life you've always wanted or is NewYork the place where your heart beats? Where you come alive and design the best? Oh, this book will evoke so much emotion and all the feels.
I loved the book from the beginning to the end! Walsh fans, this is my favorite of all of her books! She hit this one out of the ball park! It is one of my top 10 books you must read this summer. Make sure you go to the store and pick up your copy. Thank you to the publisher and the author for providing me a complimentary copy.

Her hometown memories are overshadowed by years of teasing and heartbreak. Ryan Brooks is an unassuming, small-town trailblazer. With a little encouragement from the Kelleys, he has pulled himself up by the bootstraps and built a life to be proud of. Ryan is loyal, patient, and hardworking but he also makes time for family and fun. Just Look Up's subtle messages about family, relationships, and priorities have also inspired me to take a fresh look at how I spend my own time and energy.
I requested the opportunity to read this book through the publisher. The opinions expressed are my own. Jul 17, Caitlyn Santi rated it it was ok. I adore this cover and I wanted to love this book, I really did but it just fell flat for me.
As a writer myself I know just how difficult it can be to strike just the right balance between telling and showing, and I am not opposed to a bit more telling than showing, but unfortunately this book just contained too much telling for my personal reading preference.
I also would have preferred if there had been a lot less flashbacks, I mean they did add to the story, but I found the sheer nu 2.
I also would have preferred if there had been a lot less flashbacks, I mean they did add to the story, but I found the sheer number of flashbacks to be a bit excessive. My heart went out to both Lane and Ryan because of all they'd had to deal with in their lives, I liked Ryan, but for some reason I never felt like I really connected with Lane which made it hard for me to really care about her.
Just Look Up is a beautiful story with a wonderful message, but I'm sorry to say that this book just wasn't for me. I found myself bored with it often and it never really held my attention, I could easily set it down and not feel much of a pull to pick it back up. I don't think that is necessarily the book's fault, I simply don't think I was in the mood to read contemporary romance at the time.
I know lots of people who have loved this book, and it is an enjoyable story, it simply wasn't for me. So please don't just take my word for it. I loved this author's novella in the Right Where We Belong collection and I look forward to trying more of her work in the future! I received a copy of this book from the publisher.

It's perfect for today's tendencies to fixate on our phones and tablets, or even careers and little details and miss the big picture that's always around us. Life is on the move, you don't want to miss what matters. Plus, the romance is quite lovely for all us romantics out there. But remember the greatest benefit of the whole project is the countless hours you'd get to spend with me.. I really had fun getting to know him and the fun banters between Lane and him.Jul 02, · Look Around. The natural inclination is to take profits in a stock that’s rallied like Square has. For those investors on the sideline, the hope is always to catch “the next dip.”.
