Calm, Cool, and Adjusted by Kristin Billerbeck


This week, the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance is posting about Calm, Cool, and Adjusted by Kristin Billerbeck



ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Kristin Billerbeck was born in Redwood City, California. She went to San Jose State University and majored in Advertising, then worked at the Fairmont Hotel in PR, a small ad agency as an account exec, and then,
she was thrust into the exciting world of shopping mall marketing. She got married, had four kids, and started writing romance novels until she found her passion: Chick Lit.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Calm, Cool, and Adjusted is the third book in the Spa Girls Novels.

Billerbeck did a great job with the characterization of Poppy, a quirky Christian chiropractor who is a health nut. I'm talking real NUT. She is so obsessed with health that she forgets about living. When she finally realizes that she is over the edge obsessed, she doesn't know how to stop herself.

Best friends since Johnny Depp wore scissors for hands, "The Spa Girls" live very separate lives, but stay in touch with routine visits to California's Spa Del Mar.

The third novel in the Spa Girls Series focuses on Silicon Valley chiropractor Poppy Clayton, who is as calm, cool and adjusted as they come. Or is she? Known for her bad fashion sense, a love for all things natural and the inability to get a second date, Poppy is beginning to wonder if she might be misaligned herself. Her route to self discovery will be an unnatural one - a plastic surgeon, a dilapidated house in Santa Cruz, a flirtatious client, and a blind date from the dark side.

It's all enough to send a girl - and her gal pals - running for the comfort zone of their spa.

Hey folks - I'm unveiling the new design for the CFBA web/email newsletter. I have to satisfy my obsessive compulsiveness and tweak a few borders, but let me know what you think - and be kind!

My review is here: http://invalslittleworld.blogspot.com/2006/11/blog-tour-day-2-calm-cool-adjusted.html I take it I'm not the only one who hasn't received their copy yet.

For the record--personally I love it when you place the actual link here in your comment so I can hop a few blogs that I KNOW have mentioned the book to get further ideas or to link to contests. I don't have time to go through all the CFBA blog list looking to see who's got something.

I posted the links for this book as well as Scoop and Cubicle Next Door. I've been a HORRIBLE blogger lately! Planning on doing lots of reading over the long weekend and will hopefully post reviews Monday and Tuesday next week.
