Sisterchicks Do The Hula By Robin Jones Gunn Review

Synopsis:

Some dreams take a while before they come true. Best friends Hope and Laurie never made it to Hawaii during their college years. But when they're about to turn forty, the islands still beckon, and off they go - with an unexpected stowaway on board (Hope happens to be seven months pregnant). A little pineapple, a little sunshine, and a surprising little surfing lesson give these two sisterchicks all their crazy hearts could hope for - and more - as they enter the next season of their lives with a splash and with a beautiful vision of what God has dreamed up for them.
Wherever there’s chocolate, there’s sure to be a sisterchick celebrating, and this trip to Hawaii is no exception. Best friends Hope and Laurie are on an audacious mission to commemorate their fortieth birthdays in style. Surfing and sailing, sushi and snorkeling—these two macadamia nuts from the mainland sample it all, unhindered by a surprise little stowaway.

My Take On This Book:
I have absolutely fallen in love with the sisterchicks. This was the second book in the series so I did not even get to read the first one in the series so I ordered it online immediately; I want to read every single one of the books in this series.

Hope and Laurie had such an awesome time in Waikiki celebrating their 40th birthdays together only in style, they did everything they could possibly do, they went on all the tours they could go on, they went snorkeling, surfing, sailing, to the luaus, and swimming with sea turtles.

This trip brings Hope and Laurie’s friendship to a completely new beginning filled with the unforced rhythm of grace. I recommend this book to all Robin Jones Gunn’s fans.
I received a free copy of this book for review from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group, for my honest unbiased opinion.

My Review Of Black Purple Sky By Colleen Wait




Overview:

I could really relate to this book, as I have been there in my past many years ago at a very vulnerable time in my life. Gretchen was a personal trainer at the gym and had it all, a great job, wonderful apartment, a family who loved her dearly. But she did not date much as she enjoyed the life she worked so hard to build. She was used to guys flirting with her at the gym, but one man In particular was very persistent and before she even realized it she was swept off of her feet.

The romance began like any other with all the love and attention on her, and then suddenly Gretchen found herself in a nightmare. She had to get out, she had to run for her life, but who would help her escape such monsters? Full of suspense, mystery, an edge of your seat novel. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves suspense, and a book you can't put down. I found Black Purple Sky to be an awesome read, and I would like to thank Colleen for giving me the opportunity to read and review her book. I do apologize Colleen that it took me a while to get to your book since I had quite a few ahead of yours, but it was worth all the others I went through to get to yours, God bless!
