Everyone's favorite film geek Phoebe Grant heads off to Merrie Old England-and changes her cinematic dreams from black and white to living color.
Phoebe's family has money troubles. Her spiritual life is dragging. She misses her long-distance best friend, Lindsey, terribly. But all that's bearable because of Alex, the gorgeous man who shares her love of movies and actually likes women with a little meat on their bones. At last-someone to kiss on New Year's Eve!
But by New Year's Eve, Alex is in London, called home by a family emergency. Newly engaged Lindsey has turned into a long-distance Bridezilla, and the snooze button still sabotages Phoebe's morning quiet times. She needs a break, which is why she jumps at the cheap off-season fare to England.
She's not chasing Alex. Really. She just wants to broaden her horizons. But what awaits Phoebe in the land of Mrs. Miniver and Notting Hill is nothing short of disaster . . . and nothing less than a miracle.
Melissa5 Stars Out Of 5January 22, 2010MelissaThis book was not what I was expecting to follow Dreaming in Black & White, but I must say that I quite liked it. Phoebe Grant is a riot, and a lot of the book takes place in England. What's not to like?
Melody4 Stars Out Of 5October 24, 2008MelodyJust finished this book, and I have to say, I loved the ending. It was very...freeing and refreshing.I felt like I was about to hop into her VW bug and go along for the exhilarating ride with Phoebe. Who KNOWS what's around the corner?! That's just exciting for many of us single Christian women, I think. So anyway, while this book was at times a tad boring, and often too descriptive and long-winded, the characters were great, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, and the Christian message was fabulously encouraging. Highly recommended for all Christian women, single or not.
Diana Urban5 Stars Out Of 5June 3, 2006Diana UrbanAnother Great Phoebe Grant Novel!Join Phoebe Grant as she takes advantage of a cheap airfare to England, leaving her problems at home in the States. Of course, its convenient that Alex, the man who seems perfect for Phoebe, has gone to England to help his own family.I laughed with Phoebe and shared her disappointments throughout her journey toward realizing what God wants for her life. The surprising ending satisfied me. Although Ive never been a single Christian woman, I loved this book and easily identified with Phoebe. Her trials are those of a Christian woman, rather than of a single Christian woman. The single element merely highlights Phoebes individual problems, which we all have in one form or another.Walkers real-life writing is humorous and spot on, as the Brits say. I hope she plans a third book in this series, because Ill be in line to buy it!
Krista4 Stars Out Of 5October 10, 2005KristaA delightful sequel! This book continued the adventures of single, thirty-something Phoebe Grant. I greatly appreciated the honesty in the story. Phoebe touched on many of the problems and annoyances facing todays Christian singles. Many Christian books have the perfect single girl who is swept off her feet by the perfect Christian man and Im glad that this book realistically illustrated the fact that thats not Gods will for everyone. The ending was refreshingly unique. This book wasnt as easy to get into as the previous book, however it was still very entertaining and a must read for anyone who enjoyed the first book.
