Jean’s Story

Captain’s Log, Stardate 01.05.2007

Tangerine (Shades of Style book 3) by Marilynn Griffith

Isn’t that the cutest cover? My friend Mary Griffith’s latest book in the Shades of Style series released this month. I haven’t read it yet, but I’m excited to read Jean’s story after reading >Pink and >Jade.

Set in New York City, the Shades of Style series is about four multi-ethnic Christian clothing designers. It’s a series that will appeal to chick lit lovers, but it also has spiritual substance that makes the novels deeper reads.

Tangerine is Jean Guerra’s story. Here’s the blurb from the back cover:

Her world has seemed black and white for so long. A little bit of color might be just what she needs.

Jean Guerra, a designer at Garments of Praise fashion house, doesn't like surprises. These days, though, the unexpected meets her everywhere. Since Jean's return to the church a year ago, her God-encounters occur with increasing frequency, along with thoughts of her husband--the one she vowed to divorce and gave up on long ago. The one nobody knows about, not even her best friend, Lily, or her boss, Chenille.

So when Jean sees the designer assigned to work with her on a line of men's suits, she's shocked to her core. It's her husband, Nigel Salvador. Jean is finally rendered speechless. She already has enough trouble keeping up her relationship with her daughter and granddaughter. Can Nigel's reappearance help her broken family come together again? Or will Jean remain in the trenches of loneliness forever?

Camy here: I love estranged husband-wife stories. How about you? Any favorite romantic scenarios you love in your reading?

  2. I loved Pink, but when I went to the store last week with my new B&N gift card, I couldn't find Jade! Now Tangerine?? Oh, dear! I'm so behind. Sigh.

    'course I'm behind in most of the series I want to read. I should also be writing my own, too. Time is just too short.

  3. I know it might sound twisted, but I love stories like in Kristin Billerbeck's "She's Out of Control". Where you're trying to show everyone you can make a suck-y relationship work, but when you let go, and give it to God he sets you free, then gives you someone else that's better.
    Although, I guess I should read book #3 before I say that, LOL.
    I can't wait to got get it and see how Kevin works out.(no one tell me!!!!!!) So far he sounds promising. And Camy, can't wait to see your book on the shelves--keeping my eyes open for your name.
    Of course, I end up reading more than I write, LOL!
    God's blessings to all for the new year!

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures
