Rebeca Seitz's Coming Unglued ~ Reviewed
Coming Unglued (A Sisters Ink Novel)
Publisher: B&H Publishing Group
Pub. Date: July 2008
Coming Unglued is the second book in the SISTERS, INK series of novels written by, for, and about, scrapbookers. This book focuses on Kendra. Her flamboyant lifestyle makes great pictures for scrapping – and a great cover for the loneliness she feels. But as Kendra’s dating antics spiral out of control, they have an affect on Sisters, Ink and her journalism career. Because no one can be objective when they’re falling in love with the subject of a scandalous story right? And in a town as small as Stars Hill, there’s no hiding something this big.
Rebeca Seitz has penned a charming series focusing, one at a time, on the lives of four sisters. Sassy, artistic Kendra helps plan Tandy's wedding while seeming to settle down with the town catch. However, Kendra has an ugly secret, buried deep, hidden away from even her sisters.
The secret is one that hasn't been addressed much within Christian Fiction and is handled well. I applaud Rebeca for tackling this unsettling issue, one that is probably a bigger problem than most of us realize.
I haven't read other books in the series but was impressed with Seitz's story telling and writing skills. Not quite chick-lit lite fare Coming Unglued is definitely heavy in spots though the story ends on a light note.
