Heavens to Betsy by Beth Patillo

Have you ever discovered that you want something that has been right under your nose the whole time? This is what happens to Betsy. Will she realize it before it is too late?

Betsy is an associate pastor of the Church of the Shepherd in Nashville, TN. She has developed great friendships with two of her fellow divinity school students, LaRonda and David. Both of them are pastors in nearby churches. She has known each of them for over 8 years. They are the type of friends that you can pour your heart out to. So she has everything right?

Not quite. She has gotten talked into doing a "Holy to Hottie" segment on her cousin's show. This is a makeover with less than perfect results. This whole concept gives the readers laughs. The senior pastor of the church announces his retirement and the interim senior pastor is none other than Betsy. She has a nemesis on the church council who would like her to be terminated because the offerings have been dwindling. Is Betsy at fault?

Betsy cooks the perfect dinner for her and David. Only she mistakes what he says as "bringing along a surprise" as a good thing. He totes Cali, his girlfriend along. Oh no, you can almost imagine how this goes over. Will she get up the nerve to tell David what she really wants?

This book will keep you laughing and sometimes crying through the trials and tribulations of being a single female pastor.

HI Lori,

This sounds like a fun book to read! I'll have to check it out.
Do you think the Library will have it?
