Author Bio

Laura Jensen Walker is an award-winning writer and popular national speaker. Her previous novels include Daring Chloe, Turning the Paige, and Reconstructing Natalie, chosen as the first-ever Novel of the Year for Women of Faith® conferences. The author of several non-fiction humor books, Laura lives in Northern California with her husband, Michael, and their canine daughter Gracie.


Girl bonding and self-discovery are the prevailing motivators in Laura Jensen Walker's novel Daring Chloe. The story opens with every woman's ultimate catastrophe: Chloe, our book's central character, gets jilted the day before her wedding. She is stunned, shocked, angry, and confused. She goes into a sort of mourning, feeling hollow and very much like a failure. To help her focus on better thoughts, her closest friends and family members embark on a one-year journey through books. They all set admirable goals, and they work to help each other discover some adventures in life while learning to better themselves.

This book is something lightweight to read on an airplane flight, or to lull away some time at the beach. The plot is not complicated and the characters are not three-dimensional. It's simply a romantic comedy meant to be quick entertainment, and to that end, it meets its goal. The first four chapters of the book give more back story than is necessary and actually stall the genuine start to the novel, which kicks in at chapter five when Chloe starts to expand her horizons.

One Christian theme that emerges by the middle of the novel is the need to forgive those who have wronged us (Eph. 4:32). For Chloe, this means getting past her bitterness toward her former fiance, as well as loving those around her whom she felt did not comfort her properly while she was experiencing the emotional pain of public embarrassment, lost love, and wasted money. Admittedly, many of the problems Chloe faces and the range of emotions she tries to cope with are factors most women will be able to relate to. The insights Chloe gains from her school of hard knocks experiences can be passed on vicariously to the readers.

Walker creates a realistic timeline in her book in which the characters move along at a natural, if not fast, speed. And, there is an element of suspense as we wonder if Chloe will survive both emotionally and spiritually and even perhaps find love again one day. This is not a heavy book and the characters are a bit predictable, but the story is winsome. -- Nan Johnson, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
