Product Description

Willing to make the necessary sacrifices---even skipping the occasional latte---to ensure career success, 31-year-old Cassidy Cantrell "invests" in a chic pair of boots, certain they'll make a spectacular impression and help seal the deal on a long-anticipated promotion from her Seattle employer.

But reality tromps all over her expectations. Cassie's job is abruptly eliminated---and her love life obliterated, when her longtime boyfriend dumps her for a "friend." Her self-esteem in tatters, Cassie limps home to the resort town she once so eagerly fled---only to find her recently divorced mother transformed into a gorgeous fifty-something babe with a thriving social life. Cassie wrestles with envy and apathy as she considers the dismal shape of her own physique and romantic prospects. What will it take for her to jump back into life and regain her stride?

This sassy and hilarious novel leads readers on a romp through the wilds of relationships, romance, career, and spirituality, revealing that, while God's plans may look drastically different than our own, it'll always be a perfect fit.

Publisher's Weekly

In a fun specimen of Christian chick lit, popular novelist Carlson (Homeward; Finding Alice) introduces a charming new protagonist, Cassidy Cantrell. As the novel opens, Cassidy is having a disastrous week: first she gets fired, and her beau of three years dumps her for a sweet young thing he met in church. Next, Cassidy's neighbor steals her credit card and runs up thousands of dollars on it. Pretty soon, Cassidy has no choice but to give up her swanky apartment and move back home to rural Black Bear, Wash. She finds a surprise there, too: her 55-year-old mother, who used to be frumpy and overweight, got a new look after Cassidy's dad flew the coop and is now dating men half her age. Gradually, Cassidy comes into her own, joining a gym and finding a new job and romance. Indeed, before she knows it, eligible men are chasing her. She's a terrifically likable character, and readers will enjoy following her exploits. Cassidy's Christian faith plays a significant yet refreshingly subtle role in this novel. And if the overarching plot-the transformation from plump, unemployed and depressed urbanite to svelte, desirable hometown princess-is predictable, Carlson manages to keep readers guessing about which man Cassidy will pick. (June) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Cassidy Cantrell, a 31-year-old marketing executive, falls in love with a pair of Valentino boots. These boots will not only make her look skinnier, prettier, and smarter, but they’ll help her secure her long awaited promotion. Minor detail that the boots cost a small fortune.
Unfortunately, reality soon stomps all over her expectations when she is laid off, her boyfriend dumps her, and her credit card debt has skyrocketed. In distress, Cassidy runs home seeking solace and refuge. What she finds instead is her newly divorced mother converted into a ‘hot’ vibrant babe. Cassidy wrestles with jealousy and the need to find new direction for her life.
Melody Carlson has written a delightful story that engages the reader wholeheartedly in the struggles, adventures, and mishaps of a ‘real’ Christian single woman. The tone is engaging and funny. The story is like a refreshing cool drink, carefully crafted to entertain and nourish the soul. The reader will fall in love with Cassidy and through her struggles learn some true lessons. Lessons like the fact the God’s plan for our lives is always a better fit than our own plans, even if they include a pair of ill-fitting boots. Vasthi Acosta, Christian Book
