Always the Wedding Coordinator, Never the Bride.

Fifteen years after the mysterious disappearance of Ted, her childhood sweetheart, Lillie Bauer--bungee-jumper, book addict, and delightfully offbeat coordinator of "extreme" high-concept weddings--is ready to find love again. Yet as she boldly but reluctantly braves a disastrous dating scene in her search for a husband, Lillie is caught between two contrasting images of married life: the rich, lifelong partnership shared by her parents and the troubled marriage of her younger sister, Tacy.

Faced with long-buried feelings, fears for Tacy, and concerns about her father's failing health, Lillie finds strength in an unlikely and peculiar community of loved ones, including Cristoff, her epileptic, florist business partner; Pleasance, a sassy African American clothing designer; and Lillie's strong Hungarian Grandma Erzs#65533;bet. But when Lillie stumbles across a danger that threatens those she loves most, she will need more than friends and family- she will need a miracle.

So, one thing I can give this author is that she actually does a good job of not having Christian fiction suck COMPLETELY. Usually, I have to stick with older works from C.S. Lewis or John Bunyan. In this novel, while I like how authentic her characters are, the endings typically leave a bad taste in my mouth. I like endings that aren't completely predictable, but with everything that the protagonist's younger sister went through, how she ended up was just awful. After reading this and "Women's Intuition" I see a pattern with her writing too: 30-40 something single, curvy woman has a jaded past with men, but is surrounded by stern, yet loving friends. God puts her in a situation that gets her out of her comfort zone, insert Christ-like man here as well as actually getting over God's test, then the happy ending. Not sure if I'll pick up other books in the future. That's my two cents.
