Book Review: Chill Out, Josey!

As you can tell from the title and cover, this chick lit frochill-out-josey.JPGm Susan May Warren promises plenty of unexpected drama! I thoroughly enjoyed my armchair tour of Russia and can’t wait to read another of Susan’s novels!

Here’s a teaser from the author:

Russia?Not again. Josey’s finally living the good life – she’s got the man, the (almost-perfect) wedding, the two-story Cape-Cod house of her dreams. That is until her man drags her back to Moscow! Josey knows she has the guts to follow her own dreams across the world, but she’s not so sure she can play the perfect wife while her husband chases after his. Josey’s set on having the perfect life…even in a world without hot water, decent take-out and size-two leather fashion. But can she find the courage to tell her man the secret that will change their lives forever?

Frosusan-head-shot.JPGm author Susan May Warren: I can’t help but be amazed at the gifts God has delighted me with – a wonderful husband, four amazing children, and the opportunity to write for Him.

I’ve been writing as long as I can remember – I won my first book writing contest in first grade! Over the years, writing has become, for me, a way to praise God and see Him at work in my life.

Although I have a degree in Mass Communications from the University of MN, my real writing experience started when I penned the The Warren Report – a bi-monthly newsletter that detailed our ministry highlights.

Living in Russia meant I never lacked for great material – and those experiences naturally spilled out first into devotionals and magazine articles and finally into my first published story, “Measure of a Man,” in the Tyndale/HeartQuest, Chance Encounters of the Heart anthology.

I grew up in Wayzata, a suburb of Minneapolis, and became an avid camper from an early age. My favorite fir-lined spot is the north shore of Minnesota – it’s where I met my husband, honeymooned and dreamed of living. The north woods easily became the foundation for my first series, The Deep Haven series. Based on a little tourist town along the shores of Lake Superior. I have to admit – I’m terribly jealous of Mona, the heroine of my first full-length book, Happily Ever After, a Christy Award Finalist published in 2004 with Tyndale/Heartquest.

Our family moved home from the mission field in June 2004 — and now we live in the beautiful town I’d always dreamed of! God has amazed me anew with His provision, and blessings — and allowed me a season when I can write full time for Him.

  1. After reading this book, I gave my auto-graphed copy to my pastor’s wife, I hope she enjoyed it.

    This was a cute book and I love how this character comes to life.

  2. I still need to read the first one, but this one stood fine by itself. I’m definitely going to read the other titles Susan has out, when I have time!

    Fun reading/reviewing the same books as you, Leticia! 😉

  3. You’re welcome, Susan, thank you for the privilege. I’m really enjoying my subscription to your Book Therapy blog! Can’t wait till you write a book on developing characters!
