Willing to make the necessary sacrifices--even skipping the occasional latte--to ensure career success, 31-year-old Cassidy Cantrell "invests" in a chic pair of boots, certain they'll make a spectacular impression and help seal the deal on a long-anticipated promotion from her Seattle employer.

But reality tromps all over her expectations. Cassie's job is abruptly eliminated--and her love life obliterated, when her longtime boyfriend dumps her for a "friend." Her self-esteem in tatters, Cassie limps home to the resort town she once so eagerly fled--only to find her recently divorced mother transformed into a gorgeous fifty-something babe with a thriving social life. Cassie wrestles with envy and apathy as she considers the dismal shape of her own physique and romantic prospects. What will it take for her to jump back into life and regain her stride?

This sassy and hilarious novel leads readers on a romp through the wilds of relationships, romance, career, and spirituality, revealing that, while God's plans may look drastically different than our own, it'll always be a perfect fit.

Only knowing that Carlson is a Christian author, I didn't know what to expect when I picked this book up. I, however, was pleasantly surprised. I found the story and the characters, especially Cassidy and what she was having to go through, to be very relatable in some aspects. At the same time, it was all very entertaining. It was easy to cheer for the characters during their ups and feel for them during their downs. Carlson does a great job showing spirituality through her writing without being preachy and keeping it sassy. Definitely something I'll be recommending to girlfriends looking for something good to read.
