Chill Out, Josey!

If you've been around here any time at all, you know I L-O-V-E Susan May Warren's books.

Her latest, Chill Out, Josey! is no exception.

Chill Out, Josey! is the continued saga of Josey of Everything's Coming Up Josey fame, the story of an inexperienced missionary in Russia (Not that you need to have read that to enjoy this). Josey's back in Russia, but this time she is pregnant.

This book is hilarious. Laugh out loud funny. And I don't mean the quick sniff kind of laugh. Belly laughter. Maybe pregnancy is still too fresh... But for whatever reason, I liked this one even better than Josey 1.

It's a lot to pile on a couple of newlyweds. Differing views of how they should spend their first year. Differing expectations of how to spend Sunday evening. A lost job. And, gulp, an unexpected pregnancy. But pregnant! in! Russia! I nearly fell off the couch in hysteria with her descriptions of the babushkas.

You can read the first chapter here.

And Susan May Warren is hosting a fab contest here.

And, heck, why not read all my other fawning posts. You can go here or here or here.

But don't forget to buy this one, here:
