Before I get into my review, here's the synopsis from Goodreads:

My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars. 

Disclaimers: I received an copy of this novel from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not obligated to write a good review nor did I receive any compensation for writing this review.

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions:  I'd heard great things about this book and have loved other books by this author, so naturally, I was excited to read this one. 

I was expecting a funny comical read, and that's exactly what I got.

The novel started out a little slow for me. I found it hard to get into the characters and the story; however, about half way through it started to really pick up. 

I'd definitely recommend this to fans of christian fiction who are looking to laugh a lot. 

A great read. 

Major Strengths: Funny plot-line and quirky, interesting characters.

Major Weaknesses: Beginning lagged a little bit as did other parts of the novel. However, it was still a pretty fast-paced book. 

So why 3 stars? It was a great book, but it didn't quite stand out enough to be 4 stars. 

Warnings/Side-notes: None. 

The Wrap-up: An enjoyable funny read. 

Love,

Danica Page
