2.0 out of 5 stars A less than subtle message!, 2 Feb. 2014

This review is from: Georgia on Her Mind (Kindle Edition)
I wasn't looking for anything complicated; a bit of light reading & with the 1st two chapters this book was hitting the spot, with the premise of a girl who feels she's going places who suddenly finds herself demoted at work, and single, in the space of 12 hours.

So far, so good but then in Chapter 3, starts the references to the main characters relationship with God; how, because she hadn't been conversing with God, or consulting with God on a daily basis - this was why her work and love life had gone to pot.

It felt to me that I'd be conned in to buying this book; there was no reference to this being a chick-lit for the modern Christian woman book.

You may think, 'so what? there's nothing wrong with a Christian slant on this genre' - and there isn't, except that it felt like it went from a subtle aside to my constantly getting clobbered over the head with the 'Christian Stick', and that the further in to the story, the more whacks there were.

I dare say that perhaps this approach was to mirror the main characters re-connection with her faith but frankly, but by the time I hit Chapter 11 and 28% in to the book - I was done and deleted the book from my Kindle.
