My second review is of Dianne Greco's sequel.  I really enjoyed it, too.  Dianne's books are enjoyable and diverting, much like a chick flick.

Greco, D. (2011). In the heart of Grace [E-Book]. Retrieved from http://www.thewriterscoffeeshop.com/‌publishinghouse/‌books/‌detail/‌38 

In the Heart of Grace is Dianne Greco’s sequel to In the Hands of Grace.  Heart continues the story of Susan, who recently lost her high-powered editorial position and is settling into a new life and the changing relationships of her son, her neighbor Grace, and her new love interest, Tom.  Susan’s philandering, but now deceased husband left her with feelings of inadequacy in relationships, opening the possibility of missteps on Susan’s part.  Added to that her son is in the midst of teen angst, her very dear neighbor Grace is dealing with aftermath of a head injury, and her mother is coming for a visit, definitely the framework for disaster. 

In the Heart of Grace, is a fun read, especially for those of us in the ‘sandwich’ generation, sandwiched between our children and our parents. Grace deals with the many facets of her life, only stumbling occasionally as her world takes on new dimensions, changing eventually for the better.  I enjoyed watching Grace deal with so many of the situations that I see in my own life and the lives of those around me.  I would recommend this for anyone who enjoys a lightly romantic story, but especially those in the ‘sandwich’ generation.

Now....off to start some peanut butter balls for Christmas.  Have a great day
