Kimberly has a very unique style of writing and she gets better with each book. This book is my favorite of hers so far. I love the premise and plot and her characters are just as quirky and fun as ever. The boss who can't talk without screaming, the best friend who's a guy and works at Radio Shack, which is perfect because Nellie with the red afro hair is a wanna be private investigator except that she lives in a relatively small town and has no P.I. jobs. Then comes along Amos, a former Amish young man that decides to hire Nellie. Ah, yes, and chaos has just started. She has to infiltrate his former Amish neighbors to get the info he needs...right... I love where it goes and Kimberly brings us along on every uncomfortable encounter along the way. My favorite thing about Kimberly's books are that she doesn't wrap everything up with a pretty, neat bow at the end. But she does bring everything to a close. Another good book from a very unique author.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
I grew up in a book-loving home. Actually, that’s not entirely accurate. My mom loves books. My dad loves to read the first chapters of books and then make us all listen as he recites his favorite passages. I, however, enjoy reading books in their entirety and came into writing as a result of book-love. After earning two fancy degrees in education and Spanish, I promptly let the thinking part of my brain take a breather and instead became pregnant. (I’m sure a lot of other things happened between early literacy and pregnancy but I don’t really remember any of that. If you also have shared your uterus with another human, you understand.)
In an effort to author a book that would entertain my sassy, irreverent, breast-feeding/drooping friends, I wrote my first novel, Balancing Act. People were so nice to me after that, I decided to continue with writing. Also, I can’t craft, knit, or scrapbook, so what else was a nice, Christian girl to do?
In addition to writing books to make my friends laugh and cry, I observe the chaos at the home I share with my unfailingly supportive husband and three offspring. We’re doing our best and so far, no one’s been to prison.
ABOUT THE BOOK
So Nellie straps on her bonnet and goes undercover to get the dish. But though she’s brainy, Nellie is clueless when it comes to real life and real relationships. Soon she’s alienated her best friend, angered her college professor, and botched her case.
Operation Bonnet is a comedy of errors, a surprising take on love, and a story of grace.
