Felicia Murdock is young, beautiful, wealthy and to say the least a bit quirky! She had her life planned out as so many young women do, and felt it was her destiny to marry Reverend Frasier. For many years she had worked at changing everything about herself, her dress, activities, and personality to become the perfect pastors wife. The story opens as she is returning from the reverends marriage ceremony . . . to someone else!! She is of course crushed and devastated as she was positive it was the Lords leading for her to marry him. After being restrained by her own devices for so long, the real Felicia bursts out even more outlandish and unpredictable than ever before. The entire community is stunned at the beautiful, shapely young woman that has been hidden by her bizarre modest clothing, but not as shocked as they are at her unrestrained spirit! Totally unprepared for such a dynamo of a woman, Grayson Sumner is persuaded to spend time with her to cheer her up. She is constantly putting them in all sorts of dilemmas, problems, close calls, and even danger. Mr. Sumner finds himself overwhelmed by her enthusiasm and spontaneity but at the same time becoming increasingly attracted to her sincerity and innocence. He fights falling in love with her because his past holds some shady secrets that he feels would not only cause Felicia to reject him, but more seriously endanger her life. This book is hilarious, suspenseful and action packed! I guess I would have to compare Felicia somewhat to a Victorian Lucille Ball! I had such fun reading it. I found it very different than most Christian fiction novels! While I was entertained there were also many spiritual lessons within the story. One is how we often make our plans and put Gods name on them. Then we wonder why they dont work out! Another important lesson is that we are often afraid that if others know of our failures, they cant love or accept us. When the truth is if someone truly loves those failures wont matter. And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins. 1 Peter 4:8 This was my first book of Jen Turanos and I look forward to reading more! I received this book XXXX from XXXXXXX XXXXX XXXXXXXXXX. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Every bit as sweet and kind as Jen Hatmaker is saucy and sassy, Becky Thompson has published a lovely book here, perfect for mothers who are in desperate (or not so desperate) need of HOPE. Becky's style of writing makes you feel like you're sitting next to her in your living room with a big ol' mug of some comforting drink, just talking together about live, love, and the wonderful grace of God. I didn't want to put the book down, and cannot wait to lend it out to my girlfriends! You won't regret it. Buy two so you can gift one to another!

An enjoyable light read... I've read a few of Jen Lancaster's books and they are all starting to feel very similar... but fun none the less : )

I needed something different for my mother's birthday, and when I saw Ken Jennings talking about this book, I immediately had to buy it. I am glad I did. If you are a Jeopardy fan, this is a must have. If you are not, buy it anyway. Just leave it on your coffee table or within close reach, and in no time, someone will have picked it up and started asking questions to anyone that is within hearing distance. Pretty soon you have a game going. Great book.....And you might learn something too.

If you want to make authentic middle eastern food - this is the cookbook for you! The recipes are easy to follow and nearly all are easy to make! I checked this out from a local library first - and after a few recipes I was convinced this book needed to be in my personal at home cooking library!!!
