She Makes It Look Easy

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
She Makes It Look Easy
David C. Cook (June 1, 2011)
Marybeth Whalen

Marybeth Whalen's new book touches on the insecurity that all women feel. Ariel, the mother of three rowdy boys, longs for organization and peace in her life. Justine has an over abundance of peace and organization, but she longs for love and passion. Both put up false walls of pretense about their lives and they long for something more.

The choices they make, however, reflect their true levels of dedication to God and their families.

The book causes the reader to evaluate her life and determine if indeed there are places in her life where she may be secretly harboring desires that could take her farther from God if acted upon, and show how the consequences can impact a whole community.


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, will be 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.
