    I love books! All kinds... classics, mysteries, Christian fiction, suspense and action! I'm also a sucker for anything romantic. ;) And just recently started getting into some non-fiction, philosophical books.

    Story
    "Far more than I expected!"

    Usually when I get a Christian Fiction Romance, I don't expect much. I listen to them when I want a light-hearted easy listen, so I don't mind that usually, the characters are shallowly written, a very liberal view of Christianity is portrayed, or that the story is predictable, simple, and even boring or stupid.

    This book GREATLY surprised me. The main character had MULTIPLE layers, and was very relatable and spunky, but far from perfect. She had a past, she was still dealing with things, and feeling her way through her relationship with God. Yes, it had its silliness and of course it's somewhat predictable moments but it was incredibly sweet and poignant as well. I laughed out loud, I teared-up (almost cried, but didn't), and I learned some things.

    This book was not only entertaining, but encouraging, and for a last minute "why the heck not" purchase right after my membership had renewed and I had a bunch of credits burning a hole in my pocket, I am very very happy I took the chance on it. It's probably going to be a repeat listen, and I certainly want to look for more from this author.

    If you're not a Christian, this book might not be for you, but I really really enjoyed it. Recommended to Christian women, and HIGHLY recommended to single Christian women.(And as a 29 year old single Christian woman I know how annoying these books can be sometimes, and this certainly was not one of those.)

    Actually, it is Jennifer, not Michael. I enjoy a variety of books but am drawn to romantic historical fiction with a Christian message.

    Story
    "In God's Time, Not Mine"

    This is an excellent, well-written story of a 33 year old trying desperately to embrace "singleness" (oh, how I remember those days!) Kate is trying to be patient and accept God's timeline and plan for her life. I felt like I could so relate to her "operation perfect faith" where she tries to make time for God each day but so often got caught up in work, life . . . that the quiet time made it to the bottom of the "to-do"list.
    The other big part of this book was on self improvement. I am a big fan of doing the most with what you have, so I enjoyed the part about her makeover. However, this book shows how easy it is to get caught up in outward appearances and "self-improvements". Once again, I could totally relate to the desire to fix all those imperfections we see in the mirror. This book was enjoyable and insightful. Highly recommend. Jennifer

    "Losts of Chuckles"

    Didn't think I would enjoy it as much as I did. Loved the whole idea of getting a make-over and the author makes you love Kate with her quirky sense of humor. Will listen to this one more than once.
