Three friends. One spa. And an infinite amount of oversharing!

From the outside, Morgan Malliard has it all: diamonds at her disposal, a willowy figure, a doting daddy, and all the elegance that money can buy. But money can't buy happiness--or an identity to call her own--and Morgan is realizing her perfect life has no purpose other than spectacular grooming (which isn't really a purpose at all . . . unless you're a chimpanzee). Then a falling-out with her father drop-kicks Morgan into the real world, and she is suddenly forced to get an actual job, wear affordable shoes, and cope with public transportation--not to mention deal with that mysterious hottie who may or may not be stalking her!

It's time for a spa getaway with her best gals, Lilly and Poppy--because there's just something about lying under a pile of sweet-smelling papaya plaster that can help a girl figure things out. Like the fact that life isn't about living up to a perfect ideal, and that with God's grace, the beauty of it may just be in the flaws after all.

This book was ok. I enjoyed it better than the one that came before it, She's All That. It just was lacking in creativity for me. But, compared to reading a non-christian book, at least I didn't have to worry about language! Read full review
