A review on the back of this book said that the author's "light and breezy style make ideal reading for a lazy summer night." I don't know about "ideal reading," but this author certainly does have a "light and breezy style." A little too casual for me, there wasn't enough substance in the characters or the plot for me to continue reading this book past about chapter four. Not too heavy, it might be just what you're looking for to read on a lazy summer night, or in any season for that matter. It is clean, free from racy behavior, crime sprees, or inappropriate language. At least, it was through chapter four!

I liked this book because it is from a guys' point of view, which you don't find often in light Christian fiction.

Humorous take about a guy who visits a church singles group and falls in love with a missionary woman. Great ending. Enjoyable and quick to read.

A quick, easy read but kind of silly. Christian romance from the guy's point of view...what a novel concept.

Maybe it's the book, maybe it's me.
I liked the book.
I liked the characters.

However, what I didn't like was that I kept having to go back and re-read because I thought I missed something.

To me, the author kept skipping forward and left me wondering 'huh, what just happened?'.

Maybe this is why I don't tend to read a lot of books by male authors.

This is a fun to read book about a guy who moves East and meets some really zany people in of all places, church. The Dallas Morning News said "Amazing. A novel with no illicit sex, bad words, racial slurs or crime this is still serious, hilarious, and impossible to put down."

Even though I read the 2nd book in this series first, Flabbergasted was still very enjoyable. The Dallas Morning News reviewer put it best,"Amazing. A novel with no illicit sex, bad words, racial slurs, or crime that is simultaneously serious, hilarious, and impossible to put down." I hated to finish this book and the 2nd one also because I like the characters so much.

An interesting book, it somehow manages to keep the characters at arm's length but also gives you insight and depth. Instead of being omniscient it's like reading about your friends.
The story involves Jay as he makes his way through dating and the lengths he goes to for the one he truly loves.

What he finds is a lovely-yet-unusual missionary named Allie, who has a warped sense of humor and a wicked throwing arm. She and a zany assortment of friends turn Jay’s perceptions of life upside down, launching events that leave him and those around him thoroughly Flabbergasted.
