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.

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!

Any book about a woman's self discovery is a winner in my book :) Faith, which is ironic because she has none, has just found out that her bf of two years has left her for her best friend of 20 years!! After supporting him and being emotionally neglected by him she decides the only way to move on is to literally move on! An old friend convinces her to move from her small town of Duluth to Minneapolis. There she embarks on a road of self discovery as she falls for a guy even more emotionally held up then her, rooms with an OCD roommate who strips and works as a phone sex operator, develops a closer relationship with her flighty younger sister (this storyline is unexpected!!) and makes a few violent enemies, which helps build up the suspense!
I like how the love interest and her come to a decision at the end that is so realistic I actually was surprised I liked it. Life is not always about happy endings and finite relationships!!!

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 felt like a ping pong ball in this book. It was bouncing around everywhere. I couldn't connect with the heroine Faith. She seemed, well to put it nicely..... a bit crazy. I was interested in Ethan's character until his crazy girlfriend entered the picture. Then you have the Faith's sister involved with the needy phone sex operator which was weird. Add in a stalker and you have this crazy book.

When Faith is dumped by her boyfriend of two years for her best friend; she decides that it is time for a new start. She moves from the small town of Duluth to Minneapolis, where her friend Carolyn lives. She soon finds herself dealing with a crazy stalker, a phone-sex operator roommate and a demented coffee shop customer. Overall, I enjoyed this book. The characters were interesting and the plot was fun and entertaining. Although not quite as good as her other book, this one is definitely worth a read.
