Sisterchicks do the Hula
Robin Jones Gunn
About This Book
Some dreams take a while before they come true. Best friends Hope and Laurie never made it to Hawaii during their college years. But when they’re about to turn forty, the islands still beckon, and off they go – with an unexpected stowaway on board (Hope happens to be seven months pregnant). A little pineapple, a little sunshine, and a surprising little surfing lesson give these two sisterchicks all their crazy hearts could hope for – and more – as they enter the next season of their lives with a splash and with a beautiful vision of what God has dreamed up for them.
Wherever there’s chocolate, there’s sure to be a sisterchick celebrating, and this trip to Hawaii is no exception. Best friends Hope and Laurie are on an audacious mission to commemorate their fortieth birthdays in style. Surfing and sailing, sushi and snorkeling—these two macadamia nuts from the mainland sample it all, unhindered by a surprise little stowaway.
This is a fun read. I have only read a couple of Sisterchicks books and it’s been years since I have read them.
You will be transported to Hawaii and feel like you are there with your BFF. Robin does a great job of painting a picture and taking you there. This book was especially fun to read this winter since it has been so cold in Michigan.
With that being said I find that I struggle with books that lack tension and this book really didn’t have any. In my mind I kept thinking something would happen, Laurie would drop a bomb that her marriage wasn’t as great as it seemed or something would happen with Hope’s stowaway. But that never happened. Sure, they had some struggles but nothing major, it was all a bit too perfect.
However, the growth these women experience in becoming closer to God is a very strong element in this book and truly beautiful by the time the end rolls around.
If you want a nice relaxing read that will warm up your insides on these cold winter days you might want to pick this book up give it a read.
