Turning the Paige by Laura Jensen Walker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Laura Jensen Walker is one of my favorite authors. I have really liked every book of hers that I have read so far. I read a good chunk of this book all in 1 day. Very easy, light read. This is the 2nd book in the Getaway Girls series about a group of women who are part of a book club together. In this club they go on adventures related to the books they are reading. This book focuses on Paige, in her mid-30's and divorced, who spends much of her time taking care of her aging mother. Her friends try to gently tell her that she needs to set better boundaries and not let her mother control her and guilt her. But Paige feels responsible for her mother as the only sibling left near home and with her father gone, she is all that her mother has.
I loved that Phoebe from the Dreaming in Black & White books had a small "cameo" in this book. It gave an answer to what happened with her after the end of Dreaming in Technicolor. Fun!
This book is the 6th book I've completed for the Chick Lit Challenge this year. I don't think I'm going to make the full 10 by the end of December but we shall see. I do plan to host the Chick Lit Challenge again in 2010 - details to be posted at the end of November.
