    1 thought on “A Girl's Best Friend”

    1. I'm really interested in reading contemporary Christian fiction written for women and girls because: 1) I think it's a potentially neat genre with a pretty large audience. 2) Most of what exists is pretty low-quality in my critical opinion (the characters lack depth, the plots are so predictable that you KNOW every book WILL end with the heroine accepting Christ or learning to trust God with her life, getting married to an upstanding young man, and having AT LEAST one baby). 3) I like to toy wit [...]

    2. Contemporary Christian fiction is not usually my genre of choice, but I enjoyed She's All That so much that I wanted to continue the series. While it is Christian fiction, it's not as overtly God centered and themed as other books I have read. I like that. I truly enjoyed the book, it was a fluffy read, but no so fluffy as to be unbelievable or to talk down to the reader. It was well written, though I did notice a few sports in my copy where the characters were called by the wrong name. I put th [...]

    3. This is the 2nd book in a trilogy about 3 friends from Stanford that can't be more different. Poppy is a hippy chiropractor, Morgan is a wealthy socialite and Lilly is a struggling (up and coming) clothes designer. This particular book focuses on Morgan and her life with bits of Lilly thrown in since the first book was about her. While these are supposed to be Christian books it is very light on the religious overtones which is nice. I don't mind some references but some get heavy handed with th [...]

    4. This book was awful. I could not get into it at all. The spa theme made it very shallow, and the Christian aspect seemed forced. I like the idea of combining the chick lit and Christian genres, but this book failed miserably. I will definitely not be reading any of her other books, since according to others this is the best of the series.

    5. Three friends + relationship issues/family issues = MULTPIPLE TRIPS FOR PEDICURES/MANICURES. I loved this book. The three best friends are thirty and single and trying to make it on their own. I appreciated Billerbeck's honesty w/her character choices. VERY MODERN DAY

    6. This was the best book of the 3 part series. I enjoyed the plot and climax. It was an easy read. I am not a reader and I sat down and read it in one day. I really enjoyed it!

    7. I'm currently reading this book very slowly, which is rare for me! Kristin writes with such humor and wit, I always enjoy her books.

    8. Awesome book focusing on the importance of friendship and the trials of those in the media's eyes who we place on a pedestal.I loved this book ad literally carried it EVERYWHERE with me.

    9. A fun book. I like that God was included but not shoved in your face.This is book 2 out of 3 (I think 3). I am gonna have to go back and read 1. ;)

    10. SUMMARY: Three friends. One spa. And an infinite amount of oversharing!From the outside, Morgan Malliard has it all: diamonds at her disposal, a willowy figure, a doting daddy, and all the elegance that money can buy. But money can't buy happiness--or an identity to call her own--and Morgan is realizing her perfect life has no purpose other than spectacular grooming (which isn't really a purpose at all . . . unless you're a chimpanzee). Then a falling-out with her father drop-kicks Morgan into t [...]

    11. Lilly, Poppy & Morgan have been friends since they met in college. They call themselves the Spa Girls, often taking trips to the spa to get away from their problems. Morgan, having just fallen for an already married con-artist, feels she needs a change from living off daddy's money. She moves in with Lilly, only to find out that daddy isn't what she thought. What will Morgan do when her inheritance is in jeopardy and she has to truly become her own person? I thought this was a really cute bo [...]

    12. I gave the first book in the series 2 stars. Since I had the second book already in my to read pile I thought I may as well see if it got better. Sigh.Had this not been a "Christian" book I wouldn't have rated it so badly. But the Christian aspect has no reason to be in this book. Every single Christian in this book is made to look stupid, flightly, and so not like the Christians I know. Just like the first book, this book is about the friendship of three women. Yet I don't see the friendship at [...]

    13. Okay, I didn't like this book in the beginning, but after a few chapters I started to enjoy it. Its more of a girly book than I normally read, but it was neat to see the friendship these 3 girls have. It has made me realize how much I miss having close girlfriends. I plan to read the rest of the Spa Girls collection. I also enjoyed that they are Christian books. Not sure if they are labeled as so, but they often relate to the Bible to life and what the girls are going through. A new twist to a " [...]

    14. Couldn't put this downMeet the spa girl's; Lilly, Polly and Morgan. College friends heading into their 30's. Lilly is our heroine in this fun and funny novel as she goes through dramatic life change - dumped by her boyfriend for another woman, fired from her dream job and 'stuck' with crazy curly hair. This book is fatastically fun to read as I could relate to her character. Can't wait to read the other books Kristin has written.

    15. Another great book from Kristin Billerbeck. Love her humor and drama . . . made my own problems pale by comparison. I seriously enjoyed her sparkling descriptions of San Francisco, made me relive my last Christmas there. But my absolute favorite parts were the uplifting spiritual insights that Morgan gleaned from the complete mess of her life. Those parts felt very real, relatable, and ultimately encouraging. So thanks, Kristin! :)

    16. This book was a HUGE step up from the first one! Morgan is a much more complex & deep-emotional character than Lilly (IMO), & her story was interesting & much more sympathetic than Lilly's. After reading "She's All That," I didn't want to read the next one in the series. Now, after finishing this one (A Girl's Best Friend), I can't wait to start Poppy's story (& the continuation of Morgan's) with "Calm, Cool, & Adjusted." I'm praying it's just as good, if not better.

    17. Shallow. Dumb. Embarrassed. These are just a few words that describe how I felt for even reading this book. I made myself finish it- although after several chapters realized i was likely going to hate it. As a Christian I was disappointed in the characters and could not relate to these "Christian" characters.

    18. If you like the chick lit style of writing but want a book with less "trashy" talk, this is a series for you! I myself am a Christian and reading this book still gave me the feel of reading a non-christian chick-lit novel without the nasty language and raunchy scenes. It is very light and breezy and the religious context is apparant yet very minimal as not to turn off any reader.

    19. I enjoyed this story better than the first book in this series. However, as with most of Billerbeck's books, I have a hard time relating to any of the characters. I will read the last book in the series just because I have to (I'm weird that way!) but I'm not likely to read anything else by Billerbeck any time soon.

    20. I liked this book more than I did the first one. I think that some of the things Morgan has gone through helped get her to view things from a different perspective. Can't wait to read the next book from Poppy's perspective.

    21. Another great book. There is probably more truth to this than fiction. Money can't buy happiness. Morgan had to learn to how see that you can't hold onto a lifestyle and keep your faith at times. The bible itself says that a servant can't have two masters: Money and God. Worth reading.

    22. I liked this one over the other two story lines in the series. Its kind of a refreshing take on the 'stressed out' rich girl. The series is super funny and witty. Recommend for those looking for a fun//funny story. 3 stars for the fluffiness.

    23. i liked this book better than book 1. still not that attention grabbing, but a fair book overall about a woman who has to learn to stand on her own.

    24. This was such a great chick lit book! It was funny, with a few unexpected twists and a dash of romance. I really like this series and can't wait to read the next book!

    25. I enjoyed this quick read in spite of the ridiculous plot, somewhat flighty main character, and oddly placed God references. Not sure why!

    26. I like the Ashley Stockingdale series better from Kristin Billerbeck. But this was a decent reada little unbelievable at times, but what Christian chick-lit novel isn't :)
