Product Description

Libby Hawthorne is your ordinary, run of the mill girl. She doesn't like to try new things, but instead derives comfort from a constant routine. However, when Libby is passed over for a promotion and demoted to an assistant for a newbie, Libby begins to question her lifestyle. Soon, everything seems crazy: she is asked to keep a secret in return for a promotion, friends and family start acting crazy, and a boss goes missing. Does Libby want to substitute her faith and morals for a chance at climbing the corporate ladder? Or will she continue to find meaning and self definition through routine, intentional living? Hope Lyda, softcover, 334 pages.

Publisher's Description

From the author of Hip to Be Square comes an urban tale of Libby Marshall, whose life seems to be going the wrong direction. She creates trip itineraries but never travels. She wants to attend church but winds up at a bookstore on Sundays. She longs for a love attraction yet settles for a "like" distraction.

But when Libby receives a demotion instead of her overdue promotion, she vows to start living intentionally. Yet just when she is trying to be authentic, she is asked to keep a huge secret to redeem her career. Will a genuine life ever be within reach? And will Libby ever have enough faith to believe that happiness can be found in the detours.

Life, Libby, and the Pursuit of Happiness by Hope Lyda is the captivating story of Libby Hawthorne. Lyda has truly captured the chick-lit formula and turned it into a page-turning story of laughter, love, and faith. The plot for this book was surprising—in a good way. Sometimes a book can be so predictable that you wonder why to finish it. Libby's story has little twists and turns all the way to the end. I also loved that Lyda used such intriguing characters throughout the story. No two personalities are the same; each character, no matter how small, has a background. These aren't just characters randomly dropped on the pages, instead, they have a history.
Libby takes us on a journey of sorting through her dreams. While she certainly has her ideal life planned out, she must decide if this is her dream or God's. Is it possible that while she has been living her life of failing dreams that God has something much greater in mind in which He is preparing her? This book causes you to pause and reflect on your own life, wondering whether the life and dreams you are living are those of your choosing, or the plans God has set out for you. While this is the first book of Lyda's I have read, I will certainly be moving her other two chick-lit books to the top of my reading list. – Brandi Webster, Christian Book Previews.com
