This being my first book to read by author Tia McCollor, I can say that it is evident that she knows how to tell a great story.

STEPPIN INTO THE GOOD LIFE takes us into the life of Sheila Rushmore and how she regroups after a devastating relationship. For her it is about looking forward and this journey leads her to faith. Though she might be looking for a quick fix to our problems, Sheila soon realizes that even being Christian doesn't change things overnight...and in some ways, her life is just really beginning to get interesting.

This is a great book for those who might feel as though turning to God will provide microwave responses to life's challenges and might be getting a little frustrated by waiting. STEPPIN' allows us to see that the journey is not just about the destination but the way we are traveling along the way.

Love this one and will definitely be on the lookout for more from this author. She has a way with words that is sure to give her staying power in the literary industry.

Sheila Rushmore is scrapping the bottom of the barrel. Her friend, Cassandra, has convinced her to crash her ex's wedding, she only have $20 to her name, is living in a friends guestroom and recently lost her job. Sheila is a high maintenance woman that doesn't have a man, money or future. That is until she opens her heart to God. As she rushed into a bookstore to cool off from Atlanta's intense heat, she meets Eden and life takes a right turn.

Eden and Sherri were church members that quickly took Sheila into their sisterly group. Eden talks about how "crisis is change trying to take place...when in crisis you better believe you're being changed, too." Sherri encouraged Sheila to ask God for her true passion and have that drive her into her destiny. With resistance, Shelia embraces her thirst for a better life by learning about what God, journaling and reading the Word. In step with the change she wants to be, Sheila sets out to step up her game by getting to know what she wants out of life, forgiving those that wronged her or she straight out dissed, and taking back what she easily gave away.

McCollors uses humor and Christian principles to show that change may not be easy but it's definitely worth it. The supporting characters will keep you laughing and the situations are things that we all experience. Some of the sayings stopped me in my tracks and made me laugh uncontrollably like..."his looks had slid down like mud on a hill". While paraphrased scriptures really gave me pause causing me to think about my own worldliness..."owe man nothing but love". There were a few items that didn't come full circle for me - Sheila's job situation, her relationship with Lee, and her mother's health. However, the idea did get across...are you "STEPPIN' INTO THE GOOD LIFE" with the Lord, Jesus Christ?

Steppin' Into the Good Life is the sequel to The Last Woman Standing. I was head over heels for the The Last Woman Standing. Steppin' Into the Good Life was an okay read. Sheila STILL has one item on her agenda: having a man. There was very little change with her character. Sheila's trials were a little too easy and someone always rescued her very easily.

I love that Sheila had women of faith in her circle and I hope it eventually rubs off on her. No one is perfect. I know that. But, I saw no real growth in the character - reading your Bible and prayer is a start and it's a great one.

I would recommend the book to read but I would suggest reading The Last Woman Standing first. Overall, it was an enjoyable read.

3.5 stars

This was a really good inspirational book. The title is certainly deceiving because Sheila did step into the good life, but it was a good spiritual life. I didn't read the first book, so I don't know the whole story behind Ace and Sheila, but didn't feel lost reading this book, so I don't think the first book is a prerequisite. Sheila did start off like a stalker sneaking into Ace's wedding, but it's the point that she felt the calling, I will say that Sheila had a lot of luck on her side. For someone that was unemployed she always had someone helping her out which a times didn't seem realistic. Eden was a really great character. She is the mother everyone wants, and a good mother figure for Sheila. I wouldn't mind reading a follow up about Sheila ad Tim to see how their relationship progresses. Overall a good read, and I'd recommend it.

Poor shallow, man crazy, confused Sheila. Talk about someone who operated on whatever feelings
she was having at the moment!

I felt a bit "used" after I finished the book - but since it was free, the only thing I lost was my time.
(Come to think of it - time is a terrible thing to lose.)

Format: Paperback
Steppin' Into the Good Life did not work for me. I have noticed that often happens with sequels however and it's not so much because I didn't read the prequel but more about the author possibly trying really hard to make the story fit into a box as per the contraints the publishers put on the genre rather than just let it take on a life of its own.

I am not sure how fair my review is considering I read a copy that was NOT THE FINAL EDIT and was 321 pages. Seeing that the final book had many more pages in it makes me wonder if some of the issues I had with the book may have been fixed in the final edit and not be an issue anymore.

I had an issue with how day one was the first 70 pages and it just dragged on. The story didn't start to get interesting to me till about page 131, which was almost half-way through the book. It was hard to keep reading it but I needed to because I got a free copy. I felt like it suffered from some unrealistic notions about how a person's experience with Jesus immediately changes everything. More often than not, it is not a lightning strike and old habits, language, etc die hard. Even though there was some of that, the rest of it still felt like a forced immediate change for the character.

I felt like the restraints of the genre of Christian fiction with language, etc does certain novels a disservice and this is one of them. It would have been more true to life if some of that was written differently and we could see a progression and growth in her as she went about her new walk with God, growing from strength to strength.

For me, the editing was great and there were essentially no typos etc but the plot and story-line were faulty. The book did not "do it" for me but that's just me. There is nothing like a bad book because there is no one size that fits all. I am certain someone else will like this book.
