      3 stars!Upon reading the blurb for this book, I knew it was one I had to read as soon as I got the opportunity. Some of my favorite books are second chance romance stories that take my emotions for a spin and through the ups and downs of these characters’ lives, somehow finding their way back to each other again gets me every. single. time. So as much as I was expecting to love this one, I just couldn’t because the author employed a clichéd and unrealistic plotline that lead me to wonder ju [...]

      Items ticked off: 7Courage takes over. And it acts alone. It pains me to write this review. I've enjoyed Miller's works in the past. Her book My Butterfly was a hit with me as I loved the writing. Given, that book had a predictable plot, but I enjoyed it nevertheless. So when I saw the blurb to this book I was really excited. A boy goes looking for his long lost love? Yeah, I was all in for that. It sounded different from other New Adult stories, and I wished for as much.Unfortunately, while the [...]

      True love has a habit of coming back. Maybe by way of accident or simply just fate. This book was so refreshing especially as it was told in his POV. And my oh my he was such a beautiful story teller. I was captivated right from the start. I'm such a happy reader right now. I can't stop grinning :) This book is pure sweetness that you can't help but feel like you are young and in love :)

      5 VERY SWEET STARSI loved By Way of Accident!! The book and River Asher stole my heart away.

Laura Miller’s writing was beautiful, she really made me feel like I was right there with River throughout the entire books.By Way of Accident is told from the point of view of River Asher.

      3.5 rounded up to 4.

      *****5+ We Will Be Together Stars*****Absolutely stunning!!This book was so romantic, loving, heartwarming and just phenomenal. River and Brooke’s story was about everlasting love…even at thirteen. It amazes me how this powerful type of love can be described in a story that makes it seem so real. As you read this book your heart and emotions are so exposed. You feel what they feel and go through what they are going through. However that is the sign of an amazing writer and that is exactly wh [...]

      Laura Miller has quickly become one of my favorite authors. She writes beautiful magic. The first 3/4 of book I felt suffered because too much focus on the characters as young teens. The last 1/4 of story however is absolutely breathtaking and gives all the feels.

    • Sarah - Books to Breathe says:

      There is something so pure, so raw, about reading a Laura Miller novel. They never fail to transcend time and space, place and time, taking you somewhere you didn’t know you had the power to reach. Though they aren’t necessarily action packed in the traditional sense that you may be accustomed to, and they aren’t always riddled with drama, her stories make your heart race for an entirely different, yet no less potent, reason. Because one thing you learn within opening a few pages of one of [...]

      Heart-warming, charming, and pure. I've been transported once again to a blissful and peaceful place and time at the pen of Laura Miller.I always know that when I go into reading a Laura Miller novel, I'm going to experience the tension, the sting, the smiles, and the sweet aroma of romance. Do you remember your first love? I was reminded of just how sweet that first feeling of "love" can be through River Asher's heart. River Asher experiences his first taste of love with Brooke Sommerfield, his [...]

    • Southern Belle Book Blog says:

      I can't fully explain the emotions running through my mind after finishing a Laura Miller novel. Love. Heartbreak. Hope. Maybe the most accurate would just simply be happy. I feel so happy. Every. Single. Time. If happiness means too many smiles to count and many tears, then yeahat pretty much describes how I feel after reading By Way of Accident. If you're new to Laura Miller, here's my one opinion - Go buy every book she has or ever will release. You'll be hooked. I promise.I'll sound like a b [...]

      REVIEWED FOR SASSY DIVAS BOOK BLOGIn By Way of Accident you meet two youngins who are 13 years old. This story is told in River's point of view. River grew up on his grandpa's farm. One day after bailing hay he stops on down to the creek to cool off and meets a fine young lady named Brooke. They hit it off right away, talkin' turns into kissin' and before you know it they are boyfriend and girlfriend. Shortly, thereafter, she breaks the news that she's moving away. Her family moves around a lot. [...]

    • Perks Of Being A Fangirl says:

      When I read the blurb for the book I was entranced with the plot. It fit everything in my criteria for a sweet second chance romance which I must admit I am a sucker for. I was reading with high expectations right from the dedication page.But sadly this book wasn't my cup of tea and I regret to give it 2 stars. Maybe my expectations were too high from the number of 'outstanding' reviews but I often found myself skimming through the pages. However I really enjoyed the narrative voice throughout t [...]

      Super disappointed in this book. :(

    • Theresa Alberts says:

      This was a DNF for me after 15%

    • Prexie Halabi says:

      And folks she done it again. One of my auto read authors made me swoon with the 13 year old boy. Yep! You heard me a boy who loved like a man.

    • Kim Howlett says:

      By way of accident drew me in straight away by the innocent gorgeous looking cover and the extremly intriguing and unique blurb. This looked like a great story from the blurb alone and I thought instantly that this story was going to a really true, heart warming/breaking love story that will stay with you long after you finish it. I knew it would be one of those stories that would stay in your heart foreverd I was right. This book was really about second chances, fate and love. The story was ext [...]

    • Amie Morgado- We Stole Your Book Boyfriend says:

      Love the whole River and Brooke theme it was a nice touch !! I enjoyed this book from start to finish. I love a male POV so that won me over. I could really relate and believe in his struggle to forget about Brooke. I mean at age 13 your selfish and your whole life revolves around very few things. Meeting a hot girl by the water in the summer and having an amazing connection is obviously something that would definitely stay with anyone forever. Maybe some would fully move on but not everyone doe [...]

    • Justin says:

      By Way of Accident solidifies the fact that Laura can write a book from any point of view with absolute ease. I’ve seen a lot of authors struggle with writing a book in different point of views, be it a male author writing a book from a female POV or a female author writing a book from a males POV. Laura; however, has mastered this, and did a flawless job with it in By Way of Accident. We first got a glimpse of her ability to do this when she wrote from Will’s POV in My Butterfly, and she di [...]

    • Anna says:

      River meets Brooke when he is 13 and she lives in his small town for a summer. They fall in love and River continues to carry the memory of Brook with him through his life and would like to reconnect with her more than anything. He finally gets a chance to see her again, and hopes that she will still feel for him the way he feels for her. I'm struggling with this review a bit because I'm not sure whether it is just personal preference keeping me from fully engaging with this book. I found it ove [...]

    • Charlotte Lynn says:

      Laura Miller is an author I have read often and each time I am enthralled and unable to put the book down. By Way of Accident is my favorite so far (see below for her other books). The fact that it is written from a teenage boy’s point of view to start and then follows that boy as a college student made it incredible. Who can possibly understand a teenage boy’s mind? Laura Miller obviously does. River, the boy in this story, is a typical boy. Then he meets Brooke and his life forever changes [...]

      So I honestly only picked up this book because I needed to read a local author for a challenge and this was the first one I found that sounded somewhat interesting.I loved it.River and Brooke meet when they're 13 and "fall in love". After a summer together they're seperated by Brookes moving away. They say they'll keep in contact through letters and they do for awhile. Then River gets one saying she's moving again and will send him her new address when she gets there. He never heard from her aga [...]

    • Kimothy says:

      This book was refreshingly different for one it is told from the central male characters POV, which for one is quite different to the other books i have read. It is a story of second chances and going after what you know in your heart you want even when you first experienced it from a young age. Though time passes River and hi feelings fail to falter for Brooke. The story is so sweet but not in a sickly way it is heart warming and makes you remeber that moment when you where younger and you met [...]

      Review of By Way of Accident by Laura MillerReview done for Hooked on Books4 out of 5 starsRiver was 13 when he met his first love. He didn’t know what it was about Brooke, but that summer she taught him about life.Unfortunately, Brooke’s family was constantly moving, so she was gone by the end of summer.River and Brooke lost touch with each other after awhile but River could not forget about her. He went through all the typical teenager stuff but Brooke was all her could think about.Nine ye [...]
