Betsy's sagas as a female pastor struggling to balance the demands of her congregation, her love life, and her family continue. Betsy is all hyped to go on her first official date with David--her pastor friend who finally admitted his feelings for her. Not even a fight with the office copy machine and a disagreement with a church elder over the possible sale of their aging building can dissuade her. She receives the shock of her life though when her first date turns into a surprise engagement party where David's mother--the editor of a budget bridal magazine--announces her plans to feature Betsy's nuptials in the magazine. Betsy feels she has no choice but to go along with everyone else's wishes--and so begins a series of hilarious (for the reader) escapades as she negotiates her future mother-in-laws ideas of the perfect wedding on a shoestring. And she is also involved in what may be the biggest decision ever for her church--whether to stay put downtown or sell out and move to the suburbs.
Patillo delivers another fun read with a meaningful message. ( )
