    3. Hooked by Betina Krahn is a 90-page story that hooks the reader from page one. The book is part of Harlequin’s More than Words Outreach where famous authors write about real life issues. Betina Krahn recognizes the work of Donna Fischer, the Arizona program coordinator for Casting for Recovery, a national non-profit organization that runs fly-fishing for cancer patients. All that said it is still a romance. Something Krahn does very well.Stephanie Steele moved to Atlanta to be closer to her fa [...]

    4. Stephanie Steele was recovering from breast cancer when she encountered Finn Hartley, a former lover from four years ago. Although the breakup was her idea, the chance meeting opened her mind and heart to the possibility she may have made a mistake. Their differences did not seem so monumental to her and she realized the years apart had changed them. Finn dealt with his pain, moved forward in life, and volunteered with Casting for Recovery. Stephanie kept her pain secretive and overworked to avo [...]

    5. This book moved me to tears often. As a person who works with cancer patients it hit close to home. As I read the book, I felt as if I were Stephanie. The differences in her public persona and her private persona, the struggles of her heart (of not being whole) of wanting something but not knowing how to obtain it due to insecurities. I think this is a wonderful book for anyone, but also should be given to those who have breast cancer. I love the idea of this Casting for Recovery group, and I ha [...]

    6. This ebook was free when I downloaded it from Barnes and Noble for my Nook library. This was my introduction to Harlequin's More than Words program where best-selling authoring have written stories inspired by real-life heroines. This book is inspired by Donna Fischer, the Arizona program coordinator for Casting for Recovery, a national nonprofit organization that runs fly-fishing retreats for women who have or have had breast cancer. Krahn created compelling characters who kept me wondering wha [...]

    7. It's impossible to ignore that this book was written as a tribute to a program created to help breast-cancer survivors to cope with it, while learning together to fly-fish.After the so-boring and academic introduction, I was impressed by the tone of the book who really rings true, is neither depressing, nor over-optimistic. I really liked both main characters, with their flaws and development over time.

    8. This book hits on issues no women wants to face but many have no choice. It was well written and makes women believe their out bodies is really nothing but a shell. We sometimes forget that what is on the inside is really all that matters. You can be the most beautiful on the outside but your attitude makes one more ugly then anything in this world. Different cancers are issues we all deal with at one time in our life. This is a hard warming book with lots of plus and well worth the read.

    11. What a great romance. It sheds light on breast cancer and what emotions one may go through. It also involves one of my favorite outdoor activities, fly-fishing. This book really touched my heart and I love that it informs others on breast cancer. Great book!

    12. A pretty quick easy read. A topic like cancer can easily turn a good story into a sad,pressive one. Betina Krahn kept it a good stoey while showing there is life after a devastating diagnosis. It was fairly predictable, but overall.a.good book.
