Fiction/Contemporary

When a former PK (preacher's kid) learns that the church her father suffered over is about to get a face lift, all those insecurities as an outcast child come back to haunt Harriet Bisset. Add in a couple of gorgeous men and a bag of Jelly Bellies and things just go from bad to worse. Will she resume her previous bad girl ways or can she stay strong in her faith and keep her church available for all members?

This book was an absolute joy to read! Not only did I like the book just as a fun read, but I actually connected with the book on various issues. Like Harriet's church, our family church is having growing pains and I'm in the same place as Harriet. I don't want too much change because we need our older members but without change the younger members won't stay either. I enjoyed seeing how Harriet made sense of everything. The added mystery of love added an extra spark to the book! The story kept me on the edge of my seat as Harriet found herself in one decision after another and wondering if she made the right choice. A very well written drama on the turmoil of growing churches as well as the turmoil of what being forgiven really means.

My recommendation? Read it..it's an older book but it can still be ordered or in libraries. If looking for a good book for a church library, pick this one up!

6 out of 7 thumbs up...

Read from the library...no compensation given for the review...just love of books!
