Review: Get Cozy, Josey! by Susan May Warren + Giveaway

Yesterday was a very sad day. I finished this delightful book, the last in the Josey series. I felt truly bummed, saying good-bye to these characters and my armchair Russia/Siberia experience.

About the Book: 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!

My Review:Don't be turned off by the cover (I know it's a little frightening)--this book is a gem. Susan May Warren is the author that convinced me that Christian chick lit could work. Josey has such a strong voice...she's funny and determined and up for a challenge! By this, the third book, she has twins to chase after and the most difficult place yet to get used to. And it all unfolds with the same heart and humor of the other two books. We meet some brand new interesting Russian characters and Josey is challenged and stretched beyond what she thought she could endure. A true page turner! I honestly wouldn't mind following Josey and Chase around in books for the rest of their lives!
