"The nicest gift a woman can give herself is to take risks," Robin Jones Gunn writes in her latest novel, Sisterchicks Go Brit. In this story, middle-aged friends Kellie and Liz go on the adventure of a lifetime and do more than explore Great Britain; they also discover their faith, friendship, and personal dreams.
Sisterchicks Go Brit is a light read with a nice message: You're never too old to make the most of your life, and you won't know what you're missing if you never try new things. The characters are enjoyable and easy to relate to. The plot is lighthearted and fun, though I thought there was too much detail in the sightseeing episodes. This is the first of Gunn's novels I've read, and I wouldn't hesitate to pick up another when I'm next in the mood for a beach read.
Robin Jones Gunn is the author of the award-winning Glenbrooke, Christy Miller, and Sierra Jensen series. She has sold more than three million books worldwide. Gunn lives with her husband near Portland, Oregon. Visit her website.
