"Say OlE the Sisterchick Way "
SISTERCHICK TM "n." a friend who shares the deepest wonders of your heart, loves you like a sister, and provides a reality check when you're being a brat.
Canadian sisters Melanie and Joanne are stunned to hear they've inherited their uncle's beachfront summerhouse in Mexico. With a snap, a trip is planned: They'll travel opulently by cruise ship to Ensenada, zip over to San Felipe, sign a few papers at the bank, and the tropical hideaway will be theirs.
What they don't expect is a spa treatment gone loco, snails and cactus on their dinner plates, risky ocean dips, a cross-country desert drive, a dishy doctor, or a Federale who doesn't speak English Fortunately, some problems really can be solved with coconut cake and, if necessary, a water fight. The beachfront property--and what it takes to get them there--becomes a gift beyond their wildest wishes as these Sisterchicks relinquish themselves to the dreams God has for them...all under the sombrero of His grace.
Story Behind the Book
A year ago in July, an associate from my publishing house walked up to my friend and I and said, "You need to go on a cruise." She grinned and told us that she had a cruise package she couldn't use and it would be her delight to see my editor and me go to Mexico on a Sisterchick adventure. After we got over the shock, we gratefully made arrangements to go cruisin' in December. What a time we had Was it research or was it recharging of our creative efforts? Both The result is the third Sisterchicks novel, "Sisterchicks in Sombreros" I love it when God does His God things. His eye is on the sparrow, or in this case, Robin and her Sisterchick friend.
Curious as to what could keep these girls away from the sun, surf and guys, Robin borrowed three of their books. As she read them, her heart broke. They were not the kinds of stories these girls should be reading! After the camping trip Robin went to her Bible bookstore and bought every book she could find that she thought would be interesting for the girls and have a good influence on them. The teens read all the books in a week and asked for more. "There aren't any more," Robin told them. "That was all I could find." The teens challenged Robin by saying, "Then you write some for us. We'll even tell you what to write!"
She has now written over 50 books, including THE CHRISTY MILLER SERIES, which has sold more than one million copies. A storyteller at heart, she is also a popular speaker and an active youth worker. Robin lives with her family in Hawaii.
