ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
ABOUT THE BOOK: Joan Sanderson's life is stuck. Her older sister, Allie, is starting a family and her younger sister, Tori, has a budding career. Meanwhile, Joan is living at home with Mom and looking after her aging grandmother. Not exactly a recipe for excitement-or romance. That is, until a hunky young doctor moves in next door. Suddenly Joan has a goal--to catch his eye and get a date. But it won't be easy. Pretty Tori flirts relentlessly with him and Joan is sure that she can't compete. But with a little help from God, Allie, and an enormous mutt with bad manners, maybe Joan can find her way out of this rut and into the life she's been hiding from.
Book 1 of the Sister-to-Sister series, Stuck in the Middle combines budding romance, spiritual searching, and a healthy dose of sibling rivalry that is sure to make you smile.
"A gentle story of one young woman's season of growth, deftly blending the tangle of family relationships with gifts of whimsey and revelation. A joy to read."
~SHARON HINCK, author of Renovating Becky Miller and Symphony of Secrets~
"Virginia Smith has created a charming and humerous novel that celebrates small-town life, generations of women caring for each other, and the value of finding a deeper, more active faith."
~SHARON DUNN, author of the Bargain Hunters mysteries~
Virginia Smith 's story about three sisters who love eachother yet jostle for position in the family hierachy is entertaining, with laughs, love and lessons in abundance. Joan, Allie and Tori are refreshingly "normal" yet each has a distinctive personality so there is certain to be a Sanderson girl to relate to. The middle daughter, Joan , is the focus of Stuck in the Middle, responsible , reserved and afraid of losing those she loves. While this story is easy to read, it does not remain superficial with Joan's insecurities unveiled and her road to healing and hope evolving beautifully. With three daughters of my own I look forward to more from this Sister to Sister series from Virginia Smith.
