First off, I want to say that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the cover of this book!! It is so gorgeous. When I first got the email I thought it was church pews, and even after the book arrived I thought that. It wasn't until someone in the litfuse group that I'm in said something about it being spools of thread. I had to do a double take!
Now on to what I thought about the book...This book is so very well written, I cannot wait to read more books from Gina in the future. I won't go into great detail about the book, because I wouldn't want to spoil it for anyone. I really loved the humor in this book. It took me a few chapters to get into the book, but once I got into it I fell in love with it 100 times over.
