Everything's Coming Up Josey

by Susan May Warren

"I need you," the tall, good-looking missionary had said. . .but he'd been speaking to Josey's entire church at the time. Had she taken him too literally? Because she was no longer in Gull Lake, Minnesota. She was a missionary. In Russia. For a year.

True, Josey had wanted to skip town when her sister married her ex and her secret crush/best friend got engaged. But Russia? Yet after a few weeks the idea grew on her. She could speak enough words to buy fruit at the Moscow market, and the missionary role was feeling. . .right (although her bagel-thieving roommate tested her daily). Even the frosty Russian weather was no big deal for this Minnesota girl--it was getting her love life to thaw that was the real challenge!

Pammer here:

I loved, loved, loved this book. It was hilarious, but touching at the same time. I laughed outloud at the messes Josey could land herself in, but at the same time....strangely humbled, because she often leapt before praying, and thinking, just like me. She's so real, so forthright and confident that she is right (ahem, also like me) it's really kewl to see the way that God deals with her so gently and yet so. . .right on the head. But Josey also has a heart and she learns to align that heart with God's will.

Oh, and Chase? Whew! What a hunk.

Get. This. Book.

Extra note of apology:

It seems that more than one of us here is a day behind. I apologize for being late with this review. Yesterday I KNEW it was Wednesday, but didn't KNOW. . .

scuffle ensues. . .muted muffles and snickers
