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~
Poor Joan! She’s not only stuck in the middle of a OCD grandmother and mother on the edge of a nervous breakdown, she’s also between an emotionally fragile pregnant sister and a sister who is beautifully successful. Somewhere in the middle, she has to figure out how her own story fits into this puzzling life of hers.
It’s a fun story to read with an easy pace. Not too many thrills and chills, if you are after such a book, but a sweet relationship between boy and girl. The grandmother was my favorite character and I wanted to see more of her. 🙂
