Book Review: Desperate Pastors' Wives

I just want to turn you all on to a pretty good read. See the description below:

Four pastors' wives. All desperate for something.

Is it possible that their desperation will lead to hope?

Mimi, Lisa, Jennifer, and Felicia all live in the fishbowl of Red River, Ohio. Everyone expects something from them. Gourmet casseroles. Perfect husbands. Well-behaved children. They expect even more of themselves.

The constant demands and always-ringing phones are enough to drive any sane woman crazy. Add to all that the condescending Katherine Fleming Katt -- self-promoting pastor's wife of the town's largest church -- who loves to flaunt her superior position. In the midst of such chaos, will each woman find the one thing she longs for?

When the unflappable Kitty Katt starts showing up at odd places, the four friends get suspicious. Is Kitty hiding something? What secrets lie behind her "perfect" exterior? But even more significant than unraveling Kitty Katt's secrets is finding answers for themselves.

My 2 cents:

I am thoroughly enjoying this book. After the Yada Yada series (my fav), this one is definitely a close second and I believe the writers have a winner new series on their hands.

If you are like me and sometimes want a little fiction to “take you away” from reality without having to watch television, try this one on for size!

I loved this book. A quick read that had you smiling. It was easy to get into the characters. At one point I busted out laughing. My other half came into the room to see if I had lost my mind. I read someone felt the characters did not portray christians in a good light. I think it does. This captures them at their lowest, they are human and struggling. People question their faith, so far they have not lost it! I look forward the next volume.
