About the Book:
(Dual Residency: UT & KY) – There’s not too much in this world that a little retail therapy can’t fix—except maybe the empty hole in your heart from lost and undiscovered love. Tori Sanderson is no exception. Facing abandonment issues with her father, Tori sets out to find the real reason he left her. Along the way she discovers even deeper truths. Add in two matchmaking sisters plus a couple of attractive men vying for Tori’s attention, as well as a tempting job promotion possibility, and you’ve got one confused sister. Through it all, Tori searches for the love she’s been missing all these years.

Author Virginia Smith, presents Third Time’s a Charm, the third installment of the Sister-to-Sister Series. Page-turning humor surrounding the lives of three sisters will once again engage readers, while somber self-discovery will unveil Tori’s struggles, and perhaps a few of your own. In a world with more than a few dysfunctional families, this story will ring true for many.

About the Author:
Virginia Smith recently contracted her twelfth book in four years. Previous books in the Sister-to-Sister series include: Stuck in the Middle and Age before Beauty. In 2008 she was named Writer-of-the-Year at Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference. Stuck in the Middle was a finalist for American Christian Fiction Writers’ 2009 Book of the Year Award. A Taste of Murder was a finalist for the 2009 Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense. Ginny and husband, Ted, divide their time between Lexington, Kentucky, and Salt Lake City, Utah, escaping as often as possible for diving trips to the Caribbean. Admittedly, her adventurous outings are often as much fun as they are “book research.”

My Review:
I really liked this book! While it is the third book in the Sister-to-Sister series, I wasn’t confused by any of the events in this book, so is good as a stand alone, too,although I am going to have to check out books 1 and 2 if they are as good as Third Time’s A Charm. I wasn’t fortunate enough to read books 1 and 2 in the series, but I am truly glad that I got to review this wonderful book.It is filled with God, love, laughter and tears! I am an only child so I can’t relate to what the heroine, Tori, felt toward her sisters, but I did love what I read in this book about the sisters and the bond that they share, and it makes me wish for a sister. Virginia Smith really pulled events that can (and do!) happen in someone’s life and pours them, along with her heart and God’s love,into a story that will keep you tuning page after page. I highly recommend this charming and humourous book to every one! It definitely deserves a 5 star rating in my book! Two thumbs up, for a job well done!
