Out of Focus kept me focussed!!, January 2013
"This was one of the best reads I have found in the past two years. The storyline was wonderful and more importantly, believable.
I could not wait to return to the book each time I had to put it down.
The characters were each interesting in their own right and I felt as though I knew them. Very, very enjoyable."
, November 2012 I enjoyed this book, and will look for more by this author--she kept me guessing!
"I enjoy multiple books that involve differing views by the same cast of characters--like the Cedar Cove series by Debbie Macomber.
This book fits that category neatly."
Suspenseful to the end
, November 2012
"This book was very good, relaxing material to read. Hated to put it down and glad to pick it back up again for more entertaining writing.
This was the second book I have read by this author and will look for more."
A very good read
, November 2012
"This was the second book of Nancy Naigle's I have read. It was very good, it kept me intrigued till the very end.
A must read after her 1st book."
Love, love, love it!

"This book is wonderful! This author, Nancy Nagle, is now one of my favorites. I first read 'Sweet Tea and Secret's.
It was so good I had to read this book too. It didn't disapoint!"

"Just finished reading and it was a very good book. Never would have guessed the outcome. A must read book."

"Found a great author. Book has a little mystery and romance. Starting her next book.
Thanks amazon for sending great suggestions."
Smooth storyline with a wonderful Southern voice
, October 2012
"...I hope that the author continues to write about Adams Grove and includes some of those characters in future stories." Adams Grove is definitely a town that one would like to spend more time in as a reader and settle in as a character.
A bit more mystery with the same Southern charm
, September, 2012
Out of Focus is the title of Southern Author Nancy Naigle's second Adams Grove novel. Like her first book, Sweet Tea and Secrets,
this book has a smooth storyline with a wonderful Southern voice. Unlike the first one,
this book is a little more mystery and a little less romance. Both are equally good reads.
This time we are introduced to Kasey, who is a new comer to Adams Grove. While on the road working as a
photographer on tour with a country singing star, Kasey's husband has been having the folks in Adam's Grove
build the perfect house for them and their son. When he is killed and their son, Jake, goes missing, Kasey moves
into the house in Adams Grove to search for Jake. I actually enjoyed this book a little bit better since it was more
of a mystery and less of a romance. I thought the mystery was well crafted. Although I guessed who the perpetrator was,
it was not AS transparent as in the first book and the mystery had a little more depth to it. That said, I believe that
the author played the romance part of the book just right. It would have been too strange to have Kasey get involved in a
big romance so close to the death of her husband, and I believe it would have hurt the story for that to happen.

"I enjoyed this book, kept my interest and had a great story line.
This is the second book I have read by the author and I have enjoyed both."
Life turned upside down!

"This is an emotional story with lots of turns..especially concerning a long time friend.
A really good read. Congrats to the Author for a page turning story."
She did it AGAIN! Captured from the first page!
, March 15, 2012
"She did it AGAIN! Captured from the first page, Nancy Naigle told a story of romance and suspense that was truly difficult
to put down. Like her characters in Sweet Tea and Secrets, these were delightful, thought provoking and tender. The story twisted
to and fro like a lazy stream in the forest always keeping the reader in suspense. Just when I thought I knew who dun it - she got
me again! Unexpected endings are SO MUCH FUN! Can't wait for the next book...hurry up and write, Nancy! "

"...Women will adore the story but it is really a man's story as well.
This book is literature and I won't be surprised if it wins accolades along the way. I know it won my heart! "

"Read Nancy's first book Sweet Tea and Secrets in a day and the next day went to Out of Focus for a
wonderful double header. I flew through the second book in a day too. I really like the town and its people.
Having read the first book, made some of the characters already friends. Now I am going through withdrawal
waiting for the next book in the series.
I'm on the newsletter list so I'll know when it comes out. "

The Kindle Book Review -
"...a journey of hope, faith, betrayal and undying friendship.
The heartbreak and despair that are portrayed in the Author's writing will pull at you with such a
force that you will not want to put this book down. The pace of the book is steady as the suspense keeps
building until the very end. The characters depicted in this story are extremely well developed and you will
feel a kinship with them all. This story also portrays the true meaning of loyalty and friendship in times of
happiness and great despair. The portrayal of the friendship that exists in a close knit small town will make
you yearn to live there.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to get lost in the characters and story and also lets
you feel the real value of loyalty, friendship and love. Most especially a mother's love and devotion for her child."

I absolutely loved this 2nd Adams Grove Novel, Out of Focus. It had me captured well into the night, and I
could not put it down. It is filled with a heart wrenching loss of husband and missing son, mystery, and the
friendship that exist in small towns. It had me on the edge of my seat!!! Thanks Nancy for another trip to that
wonderful world of a small town, and for another wonderful read!!! I soo look forward to the next book. I highly
advise everyone to make a cup of hot chocolate and snuggle down to enjoy a great mystery. P.S. Don't forget to
try her recipies in the back of the book. Yummy!

Nancy Naigle's Out of Focus, in spite of its emotive subject matter is a charming story, with genuinely
nice characters - except for the perpetrators of the crime!
Nancy's style is laid back and easy - I read it in one night. Her small town settings work
I reviewed Nancy's first Adams Grove novel, Sweet Tea and Secrets some time ago, and although I was impressed,
I am of the opinion that this story is even better in terms of technical expertise and emotive imagery.
