Get Cozy, Josey by Susan May Warren: How do you get cozy when your new "home" is a frozen tundra? Josey's dreams of small-town Minnesota bliss melt away when her hubby's relocated to a Siberian village. No indoor plumbing...or junk food! But this feisty former missionary knows how to multitask: juggling toddler twins, empowering local housewives, spreading God's word - no worries, Josey. It's finding time alone with the man of her dreams that will take some real work!
Okay Folks, I'm back to give this book a proper plug! I had the privilege of reviewing another of Susan's books here a few months ago. You may remember that it was the third in a series and I was on a mission to purchase the first two. Then, there was another opportunity to review another of her books--again, the third in a series--but I missed out. So I went out and bought the whole series myself and read all three within one week!!! So, the next time I was offered the chance to review yet another of her books--again, the third in a series!--I jumped at it! And you know what? This one became one of my favorite books of all time!
Each of the three series I have read so far have been written in a completely different style. Have you ever noticed that when you find an author that you love, and you read every.single.thing. they've written, that after awhile they become predictable? That just doesn't happen with Susan's books. Even within a series, I was delighted by surprise endings. But each series was so different, that I just didn't know what to expect.
The Mission: Russia series was very Tom Clancy meets Dee Henderson. The Noble Legacy series reminded me of some of my favorite Karen Kingsbury novels. This Josey series was like hanging out at some of my favorite blogs. It's written from Josey's standpoint as she keeps us updated on her day-to-day life as a wife, mom, and part-time missionary...in SIBERIA! Josey writes with humor and realness much like some of my favorite blogs. In fact when I first started reading it, I immediately thought, "This could be Fiddledeedee!" (Especially when she discusses the merits of chocolate for breakfast...and then lunch! To which I wholeheartedly agree, by the way. :))
You can find this book and ALL of Susan's books here, and I highly recommend that you head over there and stock up! When you're finished with that, head on over to Susan's blog tour post and leave a comment telling her your favorite winter time activity or winter memory and be entered to win a Get Cozy gift basket!
The basket will be loaded with Godiva chocolate, Starbucks coffee, Harry and David Moose Crunch, gourmet hot cocoa, and a fab pair of snuvvy PJs!
You know I love you, if I'm sharing that bit of information with you...'cause that basket has all my favorites in it, and I really want it for myself!! :)
