From Publishers Weekly

Christian chick-lit star Billerbeck has moved on from her popular Ashley Stockingdale trilogy with an engaging new novel that features struggling fashion designer Lilly Jacobs and her two best friends, Morgan and Poppy. The trio met at Stanford, and they couldn't be more different: Morgan's the down-to-earth daughter of a wealthy diamond dealer, while Poppy is a tie-dye-sporting chiropractor who's always prattling on about nutrition and energy. Now in their late 20s, the three are still best friends, and they make periodic trips to a spa when life gets too rough. As the novel opens, Lilly's just been passed over for a promotion, and discovers her boyfriend has been two-timing. She decides it's time to launch her own couture company. Along the way, Morgan gets ensnared in a curious May-December romance, and Lilly falls for a gold-digging Brit she meets at church. As if her plate weren't full enough, Lilly's birth mother, who abandoned her as a baby, turns up out of the blue; what's more, $20,000 of Lilly's start-up money vanishes. But all's well that ends well: Lilly finds true love and is trumpeted as the next Vera Wang. Snappy dialogue and lovable characters make this novel a winner.

And I think you develop a better relationship with the main character when they tell the story.
Kelly S.
I loved Lilly, loved She's All That and all very much looking forward to catching up with Morgan in the next instalment of the series.
Kara Isaac
This series is very enjoyable, not at all boring, and full of the kind of drama that makes chick lit fun to read.

This was a funny book that had me laughing out loud in the break room at work. It's about a girl who had a master's degree from Stanford but refuses to use it, who has a speech impediment when it comes to talking to attractive men, and whose bad hair ruined her life. Against her Grandmother's constant nagging for her to grow up and find a real job, she listens to her heart and follows her gut. While she may seem like she has no confidence on the surface, when you read further into the book and really start to develop a relationship with her, you realize that she has unbelievable confidence! She doesn't back down when other people tell her that she is wasting her time on fashion. She knows she is good at what she does and isn't afraid to say it. She pushes herself to do her best and doesn't accept anything less. I love books that are told in the first person because it feels like they are telling their story to you. And I think you develop a better relationship with the main character when they tell the story. This book is the first in a series of the "Spa Girls Collection". Basically, it's these three friends whose problems can all be solved (if not, minimized) by going for a "Spa Weekend". I think each book will be about a different girl. I can't wait for the next one to come out!

I really enjoyed She's All That. The character development was so good that I felt like they were all my friends. What I love about Ms. Billerbeck's writing is all the twists and turns. I feel like I'm never sure what is going to happen next. How does she get so much on one page?! She really knows her subject and writes so that you understand it too. She's All That is a wonderful glimpse into people and their lives. We all know someone like these characters. Great fun.

If you enjoyed Lauren Weisberger's THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA and Sophie Kinsella's "Shopaholic" series but disliked the profanity and gratuitous sex, then SHE'S ALL THAT is your book. Kristen Billerbeck bills herself as "one of the first Christian Chick Lit authors" and in kicking off her "Spa Girls" series she also proves that she's one of the best.

Lilly Jacobs tries to make a name for herself as a fashion designer in San Francisco (a refreshing change from all the Chick Lit set in New York City). She's just lost a promotion from boss Sarah Lang (yup, rhymes with "Vera Wang") to a man who wears more eyeliner and is less talented. Her sort-of boyfriend Robert has dumped her for another woman, and Lilly is more miffed than heartbroken over the whole thing. When things get tough, Lilly and her two best friends head for the Spa Del Mar, where there's nothing a good pedicure and facial can't cure.

Is this the sort of tale you like? Then read on....

Billerbeck excels at giving her characters little eccentricities that make them appealing and memorable. Lilly, who at twenty-something "has the figure of your standard thirteen-year-old," also has a thing about Lysol and bad smells, going to the point of even smearing a little Vicks Vapo-Rub under her nose whenever she has to take public transportation with the unwashed masses of San Francisco. (No surprise that aromatherapy becomes a part of the novel.) Her two best gal pals are chiropractor Dr. Poppy Clayton, an updated version of a Haight Ashbury beatnik --- complete with gauzy skirts and endless chatter about positive energy fields and toxins --- and Morgan Malliard, a mannequin for her father's diamond jewelry. All three women have issues with their mothers --- or lack of them.

I loved Billerbeck's Ashley Stockingdale Series, so I was eager to see if her new Spa Girls Series had the same sass and flair. I was not disappointed! In this series, there are three friends who meet regularly at a day spa to re-connect and work out their problems. All three characters are well-drawn and interesting--which only makes you long for the next book in the series. The star of this one, Lilly, is a flawed, quirky, and completely lovable financial guru turned fashion designer. I enjoyed getting a peak into the fashion industry. As with all of Billerbeck's books, there is a romantic thread that has you guessing til the end which guy will be The One. It's a rare book that can make me laugh out loud, but this one had me cackling several times. I can't wait to see what happens in the next installments of Spa Girls!

Spa Girls is so much fun!I was not expecting to enjoy it as much as the Ashley Stockingdale series, but I was very much surprised. Lilly is one of those characters that you feel like you've know since you were in grade school. This book has wit, laugh-out-loud moments, romance and lots of girlfriend drama. Can't wait to catch up with Lilly and her gang in the next book.

I want to own a Lilly Jacobs gown! Bravo Kristin for writing another great, engaging chick lit! Lilly, Poppy and Morgan are loveable, unique and fun.

Billerbeck is a premier chick lit author who's created a unique heroine who would love to hang out with Ashley Stockingdale.

Buy this book!

I have thoroughly enjoyed all of Kristin Billerbeck's books. They are such an easy read as she makes you feel as though you are right in the story. I am just waiting for the newest Spa Girls book to be delivered. I am sure it will be every bit as good as the others. You will enjoy all of Kristin's books.
