This week, the

is introducing
She Makes It Look Easy
David C. Cook (June 1, 2011)
Marybeth Whalen


Marybeth Whalen is the wife of Curt and mom of six children. The family lives outside Charlotte, NC. Marybeth is a member of the Proverbs 31 Ministries writing team and a regular contributor to their daily devotions. Her first novel,The Mailbox was released in June 2010. Her next novel, She Makes It Look Easy, was released in June 2011. Additionally, she serves as director of She Reads, Proverbs 31 Ministries' fiction division.


Ariel Baxter has just moved into the neighborhood of her dreams. The chaos of domestic life and the loneliness of motherhood, however, moved with her. Then she meets her neighbor, Justine Miller. Justine ushers Ariel into a world of clutter-free houses, fresh-baked bread, homemade crafts, neighborhood play dates, and organization techniques designed to make marriage better and parenting manageable.

Soon Ariel realizes there is hope for peace, friendship, and clean kitchen counters. But when rumors start to circulate about Justine’s real home life, Ariel must choose whether to believe the best about the friend she admires or consider the possibility that “perfection” isn’t always what it seems to be.

In her latest novel, Marybeth Whalen presents a tale any woman can relate to. We've all known women like Justine, those in our circle who were always presentable, their homes always immaculate, their children picture-perfect. They made everything look easy. And they made us feel like we weren't doing enough. But what really goes on behind the Martha-Stewart-perfect facade? That's the question in this engaging, masterfully written novel of the grass being greener on the other side of the fence. But which side is truly greener? Thumbs up to Whalen! I highly recommend this novel to any woman who thought she could do it all "if only..." Do yourself a favor. Let the dusting go for a day, grab this book, sit in your favorite reading spot, and enjoy. You'll be glad you did.
