These Boots Weren't Made for Walking by Melody Carlson

Back Cover: Certain she's paid her corporate dues, thirty one-year-old Cassidy Cantrell struts through the office in her chic Valentino boots to turn in her latest project. She's confident she'll make a spectacular impression and seal the deal on her long-anticipated promotion at the Seattle marketing firm. But when reality tromps over her expectations, Cassie quickly realizes those same stylish boots are all wrong for pounding the pavement in search of a new job- or for kicking her cheating ex-boyfriend out of her life. Her self-esteem in tatters, Cassie limps back to her ski resort hometown- to find her rebounding-from-divorce mother transformed into a gorgeous fifty-something babe whose thriving social life only accentuates the dismal shape of Cassie's own romantic prospects. What will it take for Cassie to jump back into life and regain her stride? This sassy and hilarious novel from Cassie's journey, stumbling through the wilds of romance, career, and spirituality and learning to trust that God's plan will always be the perfect fit. This was a cute book. I def love the cover, cute! :] And Melody Carlson is just an awesome writer, especially since she writes Christian books! Cassie def goes through some things that many women may go through. And sometimes just going home and taking it easy will help you figure things out. I liked how Will was such a simple character, but he was always in the back of her mind, and it's those people who we really care about. It was also kinda funny and annoying at the same time to learn about her mom, cuz that'd be def weird if my mom acted like that! It's always weird when the mom looks younger and better than the daughter! But it's like why can't people just want to look their age and be fine with it ya know? dang. Who cares so much, wasting money trying to look young when you're gonna get old sooner or later! Goodness haha, anyways, it was a cute story, and I like the ones that are in a small town, it seems so nice and cozy even if you did know like everybody. At least everyone would be watching out for ya!
