This was a dud. If you want to read good books abt friends,fun books, read the Hot Flash Club series or Sisterchicks. ( )

Several ladies from Lakeside Baptist Church are treated to a Jamaican holiday trip by their friend and fellow churchgoer Becky, a single woman who has won a large sum of money on a television game show. This is a combination of chick lit and romance. This book could definitely use some editing. The book did not grab me right away. The book began with a prologue which was totally unnecessary. Then the first sentence of the main part of the book was very weak. I think Jennifer was supposed to be the central character of the book, but there really wasn't a clearly identifiable main character. The entire premise of the book is not plausible. There is no way that a single woman at any church is going to convince her all of her married friends to leave their families at Christmas time to go to Jamaica, especially churchgoing women who value family very much. Once the reader gets past all these shortcomings, the story does become somewhat engaging. There are some good points. Many works of Christian fiction go along and try to insert a plan of salvation at some point in the book. In this particular book, the ladies are, in many cases (aside from leaving their families to go on this vacation) acting exactly the way many church women act on a daily basis. They are living out their Christianity and concerned for their friends. The author is more successful at times than others in making the flow seem natural, but her intent to weave the Christian lifestyle into her characters is there. Most of the author's attempts at humor fell a little flat. This book is for those who really enjoy the Christian fiction genre, and I suspect that many persons who read Christian fiction almost exclusively would rate this book at 4 stars. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0800731077, Paperback)

When putting together another "perfect" Christmas is just too much, the women of Lakeside Baptist Church rebel (as much as Baptists can) and buy six tickets to Jamaica. Trading their to-dos and grocery lists for sunscreen and flip-flops, the ladies think they're going to have the time of their lives. Only their sunny holiday turns out to be more than they bargained for and they get cold reality, sans sugarplums, for Christmas. A great escape for those snowy, gray December days, Jamaican Me Crazy is just what the doctor ordered. Christian women who dig friendship fiction like The Potluck Club will love this exciting tale of a Caribbean Christmas gone crazy.
