Oh, to be 30 without a care in the world. But Whitney Blake seems to have all sorts of cares piled on her unmarried, diet-challenged, quest-for-personal-salvation shoulders in Judy Baer's light-hearted inspirational romance with a kick, The Whitney Chronicles. Her best friend, Kim, gives her a journal to record her dreams and goals. Whitney makes the most of it, keeping track of every facet of life and work and play. In the process, she discovers you might have to kiss a lot of Chia pets before finding your prince. When the prince is right there in the middle of your life, as Chase is, it might be easy at first to overlook him. And when he's involved in a relationship of his own, it might seem impossible to overcome the obstacles. But just as Whitney is running out of writing room, her goal seems in reach. Baer deftly knits together fundamental spiritual truths with the zing-went-the-strings of love story. This is a warm-hearted, smile-laden tale of knowing oneself and finding one's best lifemate.
