The first chapter was very steamy! Then …it was a dream! OMG The Hutchinson sisters grew up the daughters of a preacher. I got the feeling that if one or both ever did find and marry “a good Christian boy” they would find something else to complain about. The conversations between them were the high point for me. Their mother spoke in Minnesota lingo so it was a treat.
As for the main characters Gwenn (Gwendolyn) and her sister Rachel are funny. When it comes to the sister likeness they are not it! They are opposites. Each one is just trying to find out where and what they should be doing.
Gwen is an organizer and has her own business. There are a few funny scenes between them where you find out that Gwenn is a slob. I guess she tires of cleaning other peoples clutter, so when it comes to her own, well shed just rather it sit and be clutter.
Rachel is a little bit of a rebel, she gay, her parents don’t know. I don’t get her thinking, but she feels like it would be the end all battle so why tell them. In every other conversation she is told of a “nice Christian boy” that she could date. So it was laughable. They make reference to things I consider funny like mentioning God told them to move. They moved a lot too!
The plot follows as Gwenn has vivid dreams of a handsome stranger. Then Gwenn discovers a photo and she wonders if this artist Daniel Gregory is her dream guy. When the adventure begins the sisters keep a decent pace. I felt bad for Rachel when she had to deal with a possible cheating dilemma with her long time rock band girlfriend. She takes you on a text message fueled frenzy.
Overall the book was good although at times a little too descriptive and that slowed things up a little for me. The title comes from a family saying “Well, it’s not my favorite.” The sisters are in for more Minnesota adventures for sure.
Rue graduated from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California with a degree in Journalism. Her intimate knowledge of the Midwestern United States, the inordinate amount of time she spent in its churches’ pews and her unique parentage make her an expert on life after religion. Having moved 17 times by the time she graduated from high school Rue has seen more than her share of North America. She never stayed in one place long enough to make human friends. Her best friends were all characters from her beloved books; and the love of reading led to a lifelong passion for writing.
