that this is the author's first novel! While this is definitely a fun read, she also has a way with language that made me think she had a number of books under her belt.

I can imagine this being a favorite with the chick lit crowd, though I liked it more as a mystery novel. So I guess I'd say that unless your reading is confined to encyclopedias and repair manuals, you'll really like this. Highly recommended!

Even though I don't generally read this genre, Osterkamp's book kept me turning the pages. From the opening where we learn Faith is not only psychic, but has been kidnapped, this story forced me to read on.

The humor Faith uses to look at her life makes this story endearing and believable. I was with her from the time her best friend fessed up to cheating with Faith's boyfriend all the way through her "call girl" room mate and mechanic crush. Funny and engaging. I'll definitely buy the author's next book.

Following My Toes is the story of Faith, a maybe psychic who loves to follow her feelings. The story actually starts with Faith and two others being abducted, and then we get a giant flashback to see how they got to that point. I find the term "chick lit" gets a bad rap amongst many readers, but this was chick lit in the best senses of the word. It was fun. There were break-ups, make-ups, friendships, and entirely new lives. The cast of characters was hilarious. I think I'd have a hard time picking a favorite, but if forced I'd probably choose Faith's eccentric roommate Missy. Missy was a free spirit who was loads of fun.

The ending was not entirely unpredictable, but twists and turns are not what this book is about. It's about exploring the intricacies of various relationships and forgiveness. Can Faith forgive people who have wronged her? Is forgiveness really necessary to truly move on with your life after you've been hurt? Can being introspective about our own feelings blind us to everything else in the world around us? All of these are touched upon with a lightly humorous touch. I found myself laughing many times. The ending was satisfying and made sense for all the characters and their quirks.

I kind of thought we'd get to the actual explanation of the abduction from the first few pages sooner, but that didn't take away from my enjoyment. Overall, I found this book to be fun and funny, while still providing several things to think about. In the end, I felt like the characters were old friends I would love to keep hanging out with. And I definitely want to know where they are going from here.

I was just looking for a fun book to help kill time and Amazon suggested this one. After reading the reviews I thought it would be a quirky read and at least mildly entertaining. It did start out as such but I feel that the author missed the mark for the climax. *Spoiler Alert* She builds up this stalker scenario and then when the big scene arrives, it falls flat.
There was also the weird spacing and misplaced hyphens. I don't know if that's attributed to the Kindle format, but the hyphens were definitely the most annoying. Example: laugh-ing. The lead character is supposed to be an English teacher and yet there were so many typos and improper grammar, I found it quite annoying.
All in all, the book was engaging at first but did not deliver.

I have to say I am not one to read this type of story often. I believe todays society calls books like this chick lit. Though after reading this book I can honestly say that I loved it.

This story was a whirlwind! It was fun, exciting, and real containing all the emotions every woman has experienced at least once in their lives. I would definitely recommend this book to women who love this type of genre and even ones who have yet to embark upon the journey.

The characters are bright, vivid, and balanced. They have real emotion and the story is intriguing, keeping you reading until the very end. There's an underlying mystery to the entire scenario and I bet you will never guess the answer until the writer reveals it.
This book was great! Kudos to Laurel Osterkamp for creating such a great novel!

Faith is psychic, but she's not surprised that most people don't believe her. After all, her powers didn't let her know about bruising her tailbone, being abducted, or, well, any of the things that plague her life after she moves to Minneapolis.

Faith needs a fresh start after her boyfriend dumps her for her best friend, so she follows the advice of her friend Carolyn and moves to Minneapolis. Only things don't work out quite as planned. Carolyn is having issues with her own boyfriend, jobs are difficult to find, and when Faith finds an apartment, it turns out her roommate is a phone sex operator. And then there are the men who come into her life...

There's the sexy mechanic, the friendly neighbor, and the cute coffee-shop patron. At first they all seem wonderful, but they all have issues of their own, and one of them is stalking Faith. She has to try to figure out who she can trust before she can really find a new start.

Following My Toes is a funny, believable story about learning to live and love and let go. Faith's problems are ones that the reader can relate to, things that happen to everyone at some point in their life, and that makes her a character that's very easy to connect to. The first-person narrative really drew me into the story, and made me feel as though Faith were talking to me.

I really enjoyed reading Following My Toes. It is well done and light-hearted without being overly humorous or fake. I look forward to seeing more from this author.

Armchair Interviews says: It is a delightful, quick read,
