From bestselling author Jane Kirkpatrick comes this relational story about a close-knit group of five women and their pursuit of life goals. You’ll be encouraged and entertained! In the tradition of Neta Jackson’s Yada Yada Prayer Group series, Kirkpatrick invites you into the lives of five women friends who promise to help each other achieve their life goals. Annie Shaw's goal is far from simple: become famous. But she’s in trouble after quitting her day job to write full-time. Her second novel tanked, and her new editor wants her to re-write the ending of her latest work to ensure this one is more successful. In order to pursue fame and an elusive bestseller, Annie travels to Chicago, acquires a rambunctious dog, and participates in antics better suited to a television reality show than real life. Can Annie’s best friends help her achieve her goals without destroying her future? Award-winning author Jane Kirkpatrick, known for her superb historical novels, writes this bold, fresh, contemporary story she always threatened she’d one day “put down on paper to make people laugh and consider the true treasures of their hearts.” Download and start listening now!

    " This one took me a while to get into (maybe it was just me). About a third of the way in, it got better and I'm glad I didn't give up. "

    " I actually listened to the audio of this, really enjoyed it. Annie learns so much about herself and what is really important in life. "

    " This book is a very different one from what Jane usually writes. I usually find tidbits of wisdom tucked in as I read her books. For this one, I had to wait until page 301 for her wisdom. I personally, prefer it when she writes historical or biographical fiction. "

    " The message of the book spelled out in the last chapters and epilogue is very good. The rest of the book wasn't that interesting to me. I just couldn't get involved with the characters and their actions which just seemed stupid to me. If you can get passed that, this isn't a bad story. "

    " This has got to be the strangest book I've ever read by Jane Kirkpatrick. Completely different than the usual books she writes but I'm glad I stuck with it because it ended up being a good read. "

    " I generally like Jane Kirkpatrick, especially her historical novels. But this one I could not even get into. I tried and tried to finish it but I couldn't do it. The characters were lacking... "

    " Did not really enjoy this. I have enjoyed Jane Kirkpatrick's historical fiction but this was not as good. Borrowed from Pam when she was visiting. "
