A Sexy, Skinny Novel
by Alice Randall
This was a fun book to read. Ada Howard has just received an invitation to her college reunion and, like most of us, uses it to motivate her weight loss journey. But there are other reasons as well: her marriage has hit a sort of roadblock as she has to share her preacher husband with his flock (and is he sharing too much?), taking care of her aging parents and running a daycare business is taking its toll, and she wants to be a better example to her two adult daughters.
So Ada comes up with some rules for shedding the pounds and balancing her life. We follow her successes and failures as she strives to set up a healthy life for herself, physically, emotionally, and even financially. The best thing about this book is that the rules really work. So if you are looking for a great novel and a weight loss book in one, this is the book for you!
