I really enjoy these stories. It is fun to read about sisters who enjoy doing something together and who drop everything to help one another. These women are each so different, yet their love for the Lord and their family shines through on every page. It is a good summer read.
Weddings, travels, babies, oh my goodness, whatever are these sisters up to this time? Sisters Ink is going strong, the business is doing great, Tandy and Clay are married, Kendra is planning her wedding with Darin, and Joy and Scott are having a baby. Sister Meg is keeping everyone calm and in line, while battling her own issues, with headaches that are coming more often.Trouble is brewing though, the Sinclair sisters are in a snit, Daddy Sinclair is seeing way too much of a certain spiky haired woman for their comfort, so they are working on a plan to fix things, and as usual for the Sisters Ink, it blows up in their face. You will follow along with the sisters, as they try to un-do their doings, solve each others problems, face trials and crises, and travel. I must add this, infertility is a delicate issue, and it is faced very head on, in this book, there are things about infertility in this book that will make you cry. This story is very heart rendering, but it is a wonderful book and Rebeca Seitz has once again showed us, that she is a wonderful author who handles the problems people face in life, with great faith and determination. Another 5 star rating book, and truly a book that is worth sitting down to read, and sharing with your friends. Great job to Rebeca and to B&H Publishing Group!!
A little over a year ago (whenever it came out), I read Printz Charming by Rebeca Seitz. For reasons I can't even remember anymore, I wasn't all that impressed. I didn't know what to expect when I started reading Scrapping Plans - I definitely didn't expect to love it, especially since I jumped into the middle of the series without knowing what was going on. But I do love it! There's something about these four women that really caught and pulled me into their circle. I admired their family unity despite problems that might arise, and loved that they were completely frank with each other. I wasn't able to fully relate to Joy's problems when it came to infertility and depression, but I really really felt for her and with her as I read her thoughts. The way the author shows Joy's heart is truly superb. I feel the book was worth it just for the peek into Joy's life and and her travels in China as she got to know the country she was born in. But the glimpses we see of the sisters' lives made me want to read the rest of the series - and I fully intend to! Someday. When I don't have a pile of books to be reviewed haunting my every thought.You don't have to be a scrapbooking queen to enjoy Scrapping Plans, but if you are it'll only be that much more enjoyable for you! Happy reading!
I have really enjoyed the Sister's Ink series by Rebeca Seitz and was thrilled when the 3rd book arrived at my house. In the first book we met Tandy, and then in book two we got to know Kendra, now in book three we are getting inside Joy's head. Now in each situation you must remember that these gals are sisters by adoption. They are all from different backgrounds but with a common adopted mom and dad. Their mom has now passed away and they are all living in the little town of Stars Hill where their dad still lives and the room that they used to go to with their mom to scrapbook in is still where they converge when any of them is dealing with a dilemma in life that they need each other's support in. In the first book Tandy finds love, in the second book Kendra finds love, in the third book we have Joy (who is already married) wanting to have a child so badly that she can't think about anything else - literally. Who's "fault" is it that she and her husband can't get pregnant? Will her marriage withstand getting pregnant? Will she go visit her homeland of China? What about the families there adopting Chinese babies? And in the middle of all these issues, her sisters lives aren't perfect either... Oh and what about dad dating Zelda??? And that ring he bought??? Hold up! This book is a wonderful addition to the Stars Hill saga - and if you like scrap booking then it will be a bonus to you that scrap booking is what the sisters use to bond and resolve issues... I can't wait to really get to know Megan in book 4!
