A heart-warming storyUser Review - Christianbook.com
Robin Jones Gunn’s story about a woman who thinks the most important part of her life is over until she is invited to Venice to cook for a small retreat group is enchanting and heart-warming. If you aren’t careful, you might learn something about God and His goodness and mercy. A one-time single parent it wasn’t hard for me to relate to Jenna, a divorced mother whose daughter had since grown up and moved out on her own. Now Jenna feels useless like a part of her life is over. Having moved back to Dallas to help her sister-in-law, Sue, take care of her brother after an accident which left him paralyzed, she knew that Sue, too, needed a respite and invited her to come along on her trip to Venice. This is a love story but not the typical love story between a man and a woman. This is a love story between God and two women who desperately need to find Him again. Jenna knows God isn’t finished with her yet, but she has no clue what she should do with the second half of her life. Sue is tired and exhausted from taking care of her husband and needs to know that God still cares about her life. Between the laughter and the tears, I found myself identifying with the emotions of both women. It was exciting to see how God provided for them and how the romance that drew them in to God’s goodness and mercy is alive and well in my life as well. Robin Jones Gunn has written more than 85 books, including many Sisterchicks books. She lives in Hawaii with her husband. A reader’s guide is included and makes a perfect read for any book club.

Great message and fun readUser Review - Cora - Christianbook.com
Of all Robin Jones Gunn's SISTERCHICKS novels, this one spoke to me the most...the situation these two women found themselves dealing with, the male guests and how they related to them, the fun and the scary side trips the ladies took. Read full review
