Good Christian Bitches Author:Kim Gatlin The GCBs of Hillside Park Presbyterian are praying for Amanda Vaughn--or so they claim. Will their evil gossip destroy her reputation, or will she show them exactly how to turn the other cheek Amanda Vaughn needs some heaven-sent help. She?s divorced her cheating husband and fled, along with her two teenagers, back to her hometown, Hillside Park... more », a Dallas suburb so upper-class that the question isn?t where to bank, but whose family owns the bank. Amanda is thrilled to be back in Texas?after twelve years in Southern California, she?s ready to leave behind her shallow, Godless life and return to the welcoming Christian world where she grow up. Or at least that?s the plan . . . But when she arrives, she?s met with some Texas-sized trouble. Her old friends, neighbors, and fellow church members treat Amanda like a long-lost friend . . . until her back is turned. Then the claws come out. Amanda finds herself trapped in a world of salacious rumors, secret affairs, and Bible-study sessions gone terribly wrong. And what?s even more puzzling is that a secret admirer is sending Amanda lavish gifts. Why, she wonders, would anyone send a Mercedes when a simple dinner invitation would do? Packed with schemes, drama, and a Southern setting more fun than a barbecue at Southfork, Good Christian Bitches has humor, sass, and an unforgettable cast of characters.« less

Funny fluff. This book was an excellent light read. I went into this book expecting a disappointment from the reviews (on other sites) but was pleasently surprised. It's not to be taken seriously & there's nothing deep or developed about it, it's just enjoyable funny fluff ;-)
Out of 291 pages only the last 40-50 pages were interesting. It is so hard to put a thumb on what the let down with this book was, it just was a let down. I was hoping for witty, smart and beautiful main character. I was expecting lulles like the ABC show GCB but the book is a very slow and boring build up to the final conclusion which is about the only good part of the book. The main character is so weak, she made jones for some backbone. Maybe this was a biography for the writer and shows that she is truly a Good Christian and not one of the Bitches. But I wanted a final blow up with the Bitches, the book looked like it was heading that way THEN (spoiler alert) the main character just happens to fall in with a true group of Good Christians and you never hear about the pretenders again. Yes, the main character ends up with the right guy but it was a huge jump for the main character from middle of fire storm to ending up in the arms of Mr. Right.
