ABOUT THE AUTHOR:



A few things about her:

So, if we were having this conversation in person, we would probably be hanging out at Starbucks or one of the cute coffeehouses in town. I’m nuts about all things coffee, I’m crazy about all things pink and girly, and I love, love, love the Food Network! I’m married to my best friend and the most amazing guy ever, Jon. He is amiable toward coffee, does not like anything pink or girly and tolerates the Food Network. So, we make a good match! In July 2010, we became parents to one of the funniest, cutest, sweetest little guys in the whole world (and nope, we aren’t biased at all!), our Nater-Tot, who is legally known as Nathan. Most days, I’m cleaning up messes, making goofy faces, trying to fit some writing in, and just LOVING the life that God has given me!

ABOUT THE BOOK

Paige Alder is in a really good place. She’s dating nice guy Tyler. Her boss has offered her a raise. Her walk with God is strong. Life is great—and that’s when things start to change.

First, the youth pastor at church keeps asking Paige to work with him full-time. Then her sister shows up newly engaged and wanting to reconnect, even though they haven’t spoken in years. And now former boyfriend Luke has come back into her life. How is Paige supposed to know what the right decisions are?

This warm and humorous second book in the Paige Alder series will help young girls work through important issues, such as forgiving others and obeying God.

My review of Paige Rewritten:

I don’t have much time these days to review books as much as I used to, but Erynn is one of the few authors whose books I will always put very high on my priority list.  Paige Rewritten was a fun and enjoyable continuation of Paige’s story, but for all the light-hearted fun in this story, there is still a very real message that readers can take away while enjoying a great read.  I may not be the same age as Paige, but I can still take something away from her learning how to rely on God to help her heal.  That is a message that will never get old and I always appreciate the way God uses Erynn to teach His simple lessons in a fun, entertaining and real way.

As always, Erynn has charmed me with her newest book.  One of the things about this book, and this series, that I like so much is that Paige is a likable character.  I like to cheer her on and I care about what happens to her.  That is good writing if you ask me.  I have always said that Erynn is an excellent writer and she continues to write in a way that really speaks to me.  I very much recommend this book, but to enjoy it more, I would read Paige Torn first.
