This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
She Makes It Look Easy
David C. Cook (June 1, 2011)
Marybeth Whalen


Marybeth Whalen is the wife of Curt and mom of six children. The family lives outside Charlotte, NC. Marybeth is a member of the Proverbs 31 Ministries writing team and a regular contributor to their daily devotions. Her first novel,The Mailbox was released in June 2010. Her next novel, She Makes It Look Easy, will be released in June 2011. Additionally, she serves as director of She Reads, Proverbs 31 Ministries' fiction division.


Ariel Baxter has just moved into the neighborhood of her dreams. The chaos of domestic life and the loneliness of motherhood, however, moved with her. Then she meets her neighbor, Justine Miller. Justine ushers Ariel into a world of clutter-free houses, fresh-baked bread, homemade crafts, neighborhood play dates, and organization techniques designed to make marriage better and parenting manageable.

Soon Ariel realizes there is hope for peace, friendship, and clean kitchen counters. But when rumors start to circulate about Justine’s real home life, Ariel must choose whether to believe the best about the friend she admires or consider the possibility that “perfection” isn’t always what it seems to be.

From Me:

I couldn't resist ordering this book, as I have often wondered just HOW does one do it all (or have it all)...  I seem to be missing that chromosome. :)

I am going away with my family to a trial attorney's convention until next Tuesday, and I will be happily reading by the pool while my husband attends meetings, etc.

Next week I plan on talking about some of the books I've posted, but not given a proper review... so I'm adding She Makes it Look Easy to that pile.

A bientot!

Reading books while lounging. Ahh, that is the life. :-) I live an hour away from her, Cheryl. I'd love to meet up with her one day.

After reading the chapter, hubby has to buy this book for me on Save Your Local Bookstore Day tomorrow. He just has to. ;-) Be safe and be relaxed.

Robyn! I'm back!
She Makes it Look Easy was good! I think you'll really like it.
Thank you so much for the happy wishes for a good week end. The introvert in me finds ways to hide out at these things, thereby enabling moi to enjoy reading...

Terri, God bless you! This book may actually be a format/style I could see you jumping into (you talented writer!)... just a thought!!!
