Learning by Karen Kingsbury

Bailey Flanigan Series #1
In the second Bailey Flanigan book, Bailey is in NYC performing with the ensemble for the musical Hairspray, while Cody is coaching a thriving football team from a small school. Yet both of them long to share their dreams with each other, no matter where they are in life, and who else is around them. This creates an interesting conflict when both Bailey and Cody are cultivating friendships with other people.
While I liked following Bailey’s and Cody’s individual stories, as the chapters flipped between the two characters, I found their conflict even more interesting. Both Bailey and Cody try to ignore their feelings for each other, but as they try to fill their lives with things in order to not miss the other, the ache gets even bigger. I enjoyed this book, but would not rate it as one of Kingsbury’s best books.
