    Joan Sanderson is stuck in her hometown, among the last of her graduating class to still be at home. And she is truly still at home, living in her grandmothers house with her mother. Her older sister, Allie, is married and living nearby. Her younger sister, Tori, finished college and got a job in nearby Lexington. And Joan is here, in a job which is neither rewarding nor rife with possibilities. It's a good life she tells herself often. But is it?When a new doctor moves in next door, Joan is immediately taken with Ken and his monster of a puppy, Trigger. Named after a horse - which is what he'll soon be at the rate he's growing. But Ken is a Christian with a capital C. It makes Joan a little uncomfortable and Tori labels his a fanatic. He doesn't seem fanatical to Joan but he does challenge her beliefs and her faith.This is a lovely novel about maturing as an adult and maturing in faith. I enjoyed it immensely.

    I would give this a 2.5 stars actually, but having to decide between them went with the lower as it reflects the more important aspect. The story is exactly what I would expect and could have been a low three, just a light weight romance, the kind you pick up to read when you don't want to really get into a story. However, this is a "Christian" romance and in this area 2 is generous. If you are going to do "Christian" you need to do it well, you at least need to know your subject matter. The author appears to go on assumptions and misinformation and a superficial Christianity that makes me cringe. For those who are seeking spiritual insight, it isn't here, and I am embarrassed by the way people of faith are portrayed.

    I really enjoyed reading Stuck in the Middle (Sister-to-Sister #1)! It started out a bit slow, but as you read on and learn more about the 3 sisters, Joan, Tori and Allie, you get a better handle on the story.Allie is the older sister, beautiful, blonde, married, in love and expecting a baby.Tori is the younger sister, beautiful, blonde, single, has a great high end job and lives in an expensive apartment.Joan, single, brunette, still lives in the home she grew up in, with her Mother and Grandmother, works at a furniture store. She likes her job, but feels like something is missing in her life.In comes the talk of the neighborhood, someone is moving into the house across the street from Joan. And it's Grace, the grandmother that finds out WHO it is. A young man, who turns out to be a doctor! And single! The wheels are already spinning in Grace's head, hoping that Joan would meet a nice young man and get out more.Joan does a regular run/jog every morning, and one morning, she met up with her neighbor Ken, who has a dog. A HUGE dog! The dog, Trigger, takes a liking right away, and he listens to Joan when she commands him to go 'down'. As soon as Joan finds out that HE is the new neighbor, she becomes embarrassed by how dumpy she looks. She wasn't expecting to run into such a handsome man while on her run. So introductions were made, and that was that…until…..Joan's sisters Allie and Tori were told about the nice new neighbor, and right away, they want to go meet him! Joan was beside herself with embarrassment and wouldn't go out with the girls. Allie she didn't have to worry about because she was very happily married and pregnant. Tori now, oh boy! She asked Ken all sorts of questions while batting her eyelashes at him. Joan was furious that her sister was actually flirting with Ken! She saw him first she thought. When they returned, they were both beaming with news of a dinner invitation to dinner for Ken at their house!Plans were made that Allie was taking Joan clothes shopping, so she'll look really good on the night of the dinner. They both already KNEW that Tori was gonna look like a million bucks, and Allie wanted Joan to look even better. Dinner day rolls around and Joan and Tori both ogle one another when they see how good the other sister looks. Oh my how the sparks do fly haha.While everyone is seated and conversation is being made around the dinner table, the topic of religion came up. Grace invited Ken to go to church with them on Sunday, which he accepted. They found that Ken is in fact, a deeply religious man. He believes in God as the Father.Now, without giving any more of this story away, let me just say that altho I myself am not a 'deeply religious' person, I found this story to be a very enjoyable read. I think you will too. :)See for yourself, and you be the judge. Enjoy!

    Joan irritated me. For some one who is meant to be 25 she carried on and acted like she was still in high school. Ken was alright but not much of a connection for me with either character.From what I could gather from this storyline that seemed to be a little all over the place at times. Joan is on a journey of to find herself and direction in life even if she doesn't realise it for the first 80% for the story.There was lots in this book that I disliked. I disliked how Joan and her sister Tori carried on towards each other and Ken. I really disliked the oldest sister Allie, how immature could someone be. I disliked what to me seemed a little disrespectful towards different types of churches and they celebrate and worship God. I disliked that this was classed as a romance when really how was it romantic? One dinner at a nice restaurant, hmmm I think romance was put to get a larger reader audience.However I did like some of the journey of Joan finding herself and her letting go of what others would say and think about her and her commitment to God. Joan did seem to grow up a little by the end of the story. Letting go of past hurts, apologising to someone close to her that she directed her hurts and blame.I would have loved to of had more Joan and Ken and their relationship, the story was so slow at times and I enjoyed the second half better than the first

    A delightful story of Joan, not knowing where she was at or going in life. Only one left, that has stayed in this town, and still at home. Living with her grandmother and mother, two different people, that at time made her mom angry, yet comical in away. Then a Dr moves in next door, with a dog, who was a mix of breeds. And not being able to train him, or his size unknown yet. Things look up but how to get that first date,
