Age before Beauty Review

Desperate to stay home with her baby, Allie Harrod launches a new career. Sure, she dropped out of Girl Scouts because she was lousy at cookie sales, but makeup is different, right? She'll do anything to make enough money to cover her share of the household bills, but how can she focus on her business when her list of problems is growing? None of her pre-baby clothes fit, her checking account is dwindling, and her mother-in-law has decided to move in! To top it off, her husband's attractive coworker suddenly needs his help every weekend. Middle sister Joan insists that God has the answers to all her problems, but Allie isn't so sure. Can she really trust him?

FOUR STARS from Romantic Times! "In the second book in the Sister to Sister series, Smith taps into every mother's heart. Readers will see themselves in Allie as she struggles to be a superwoman. It's evident that God's plan is not always our plan, but if we trust Him, everything works itself out." -- Romantic Times

Firstly have to say Sorry to Virginia for such a long delay in posting this review.

I loved this book. I didn't read book one but could still follow book 2 fine. Book 2 is about Allie a new mother wanting to stay at home but feeling she had to work. She takes on a new home business after going to a party and thinks its the answer after all the Consultant is doing so well. (Ok this is where I understand fully I joined a home based company and didn't make the money my director makes). Things are getting out of hand for Allie, her new job, home and also her mother in law has moved in. I loved reading how Allie tried to do it all and love the conclusion.

Love how Allie finds her niche and discovers she really can have both work and be a stay a home mum (have to use the Aussie spelling) 4.5 our of 5.

I really love Virginia's books.

From your review, it looks a really good reading material. I'll have to add it to my reading list! :) The book will probably be something any mom will be able to relate to. Thanks!
