    I just finished Chill Out, Josey last night This book was such a scream that it made my list, though a few days late, but only because the holidays slowed down my reading schedule This book was very hard to put down and kept begging to be read I was literally drawn to itconstantly.About the book Josey Anderson will be the perfect wife She and Chase did have the perfect wedding if you don t count the matron of honor going into labor Now all she has to do is find a cute Cape style house, I just finished Chill Out, Josey last night This book was such a scream that it made my list, though a few days late, but only because the holidays slowed down my reading schedule This book was very hard to put down and kept begging to be read I was literally drawn to itconstantly.About the book Josey Anderson will be the perfect wife She and Chase did have the perfect wedding if you don t count the matron of honor going into labor Now all she has to do is find a cute Cape style house, report for the Gull Lake, Minnesota, paper, bake cookies and learn to sew is that so difficult But when Chase lands a new job in Moscow Josey s dreams disintegrate After all, she s been there, done that as a missionary, and a city without year round hot water, decent takeout ormaternity clothes that s not perfection But what s the perfect wife to do My Review Don t read this book in public All of the snickering and snorting will draw attention to yourself, and you won t be able to hold it back I read about four pages of this book to my son the other night while we were waiting to start a game and even he Mr Serious starting rolling in laughter with me Josey is such a great character Her thoughts were hilarious and her antics were totally nuts But she tries so hard you ve gotta love her She is a bit naive, though, when it comes to some things, but fortunately the trust she places in people is not destroyed You have to love someone who cares as much she does, right Isn t that what makes her so adorable I think so.Josey had funny names for people that will make you laugh, but she is descriptive without sounding mean, and I loved that She referred to the Russian women who worked with her husband as the underfeds because they were so thin compared to her And when she starts going through her internal pregnancy thoughts like comparing herself to a manatee make sure your mouth is empty or you ll spew food on your book Trust me, this story is a keeper You won t want to ruin it.I especially enjoyed one of the key props in this book Josey referred to them using a pet name, scary pants There is a whole lot of subtle meaning that goes in to that clothing item Brilliantly done Personally, I think this author is most gifted in writing funny chick lit I hope Josey s legacy continues or I ll be one sad reader Of all of the books I ve read in the past year, this is by far the most amusing, but it also had some profoundly insightful moments that were a natural part of the storyline.Lest you think you will get only humor from this book, let me set you straight now Josey gains insight into her inner life and motivations, and as a reader you will do some soul examining along with her The spiritual message is wonderful Steeple Hill deserves major kudos for publishing this work of art This is what Christian Chick lit should be abouthumor and depth Susan May Warren has that going on here, so enjoy Chill Out, Josey was published by Steeple Hill Cafe and released in December 2007 Get a copy while they are still hot

    great book that displays the adjustments of newlyweds and the lessons learned by trial and error Josey learns that keeping secrets in a marriage is the wrong thing to do Men aren t perceptive enough to see the obvious signs of pregnancy even in their own wife especially when a new and a new county are involved in the mix But through it all the lord love us unconditionally and is there for us even when the world is turning inside out.

    This was a fun chick lit read, though with underdeveloped supporting characters and somewhat predictable plot This new bride is striving to be the Proverbs 31 wife, even when a sudden job change moves them to Russia She wants to support her husband so much that she doesn t want to tell him when she finds out that she is pregnant the day before they leave The actual storytelling might leave something to desire, but the resolution packed a spiritual punch that I needed.

    I generally love Susan May Warren books, and this was no exception However, I had a really hard time with the first few chapters it seemed hard to get into Once I did, though, I could hardly put it down This is a sequel to Everything s Coming Up Josey and I would recommend reading that first.

    I enjoyed this three book series A Minnesota girl in Russia, first Moscow and then gasp Siberia I liked all of the characters, although I got aggravated at times with the main character, Josey But it all worked out in the end

    This was a funny book but has some great life lessons in it How to trust God and we are not perfect but he loves us anyway.

    Not quite as funny or heartwarming as the first one but I still enjoyed the humor and the way Warren can bring Russia to life as if I was there again An enjoyable read.
