Library Journal's Fall Reviews


This just in from Library Journal:

Autumn Harvest This fall brings titles from big names in Christian fiction as well as the first Christmas-themed novels. Best-selling author Karen Kingsbury returns with an inspirational romance (Just Beyond the Clouds), Beverly Lewis launches another Amish series (The Parting), and Angela Hunt takes a light, witty turn with a family story set in a funeral home (Doesn't She Look Natural). Lynn Austin offers another intelligent, fascinating look at women's history (A Proper Pursuit), Brandilyn Collins presents her best suspense thriller so far (Crimson Eve), and chick-lit author Judy Baer returns with a sequel (The Baby Chronicles). And on the holiday front, Lori Copeland (Unwrapping Christmas), Robin Jones Gunn (Finding Father Christmas), and Jerry B. Jenkins and Dallas Jenkins (Midnight Clear) deliver delightful Christmas tales.

.Hunt, Angela. Doesn't She Look Natural. Tyndale House. Oct. 2007. c.368p. ISBN 978-1-4143-1169-2. pap. $13.99. CF

When Jennifer Graham learns she has inherited real estate in Florida, she never imagines it is a funeral home, especially one in need of so much repair. Thomas, Jennifer's husband, recently left her for their nanny, and she is at a crossroads in her life. A newly single parent with two boys, she sets off to settle her uncle's estate and sell the Fairlawn Funeral Home, but things don't go so smoothly, and Jennifer may find that this new life God has thrust upon her may be the answer to her prayers. Award winner Hunt's latest book (after The Elevator) is a topnotch inspirational tale that maintains a lighthearted touch. Anyone who has had to rebuild a life after an unexpected loss will appreciate the honesty of Hunt's characters and uplifting plot. Highly recommended for CF and women's fiction collections.

I love getting a great review, especially when I'm in the company of so many good friends!

And I am so ready for cooler temperatures!

We actually turned our furnace on yesterday! It was about 50 degrees for the high.
I bet it's a nice break in Boston.
