More Awesome Quotes from the Blog Tour

Thanks again to all my awesome reviewers who are helping to spread the word far and wide about Secret Sisters. Here are some fun quotes from recent reviews:

"This cast of characters will have you laughing out loud in the middle of the day, perhaps while you’re in the grocery store or driving your car, when out of the blue a great line pops into your head. One such as, “Sister Babbitt, why is the Relief Society here?” Yes, that really happened. And people stared. I appeared to be nuts. Don’t worry, I’m used to it." - Nichole Giles (read full review here)

"As the Relief Society President for her LDS ward, Ida and her team learn that some of the sheep in their fold may be going without. But getting to the bottom of the misfortunes of the Dunn family proves difficult. With the help of her nephew, Ren, and her Relief Society Sisters, Ida Mae embarks on a mission of the impossible variety. What ensues is a hilarious adventure of mystery wrappers, kitty-cat panic buttons, and some blue-haired ladies who put the red-hat society to shame!" - L.T. Elliot (read full review here)

"The premise is a little ridiculous - but ridiculous in a refreshing and fun way. See, ridiculous isn't always a bad thing - so next time my husband tells me my shoes look "ridiculous" I can just smile and say thanks :)" - Tonya Christensen (read full review here)

"Pinkston has created a vivid assortment of over-the-top, multi-dimensional characters, while carefully adding enough depth to endear them to the reader. The plot is pure whimsy with an unexpected twist at the end that will keep you scratching your head until the final page-turn. Pinkston has done a fine job of hitting the comedy and drama buttons while tugging on the heartstrings as well." - L.C. Lewis (read full review here)

"While Secret Sisters does include a mystery, it is not the focus of the story. The zany antics of Ida Mae and her cohorts will keep you laughing throughout the entire book. Tristi also includes some real life lessons throughout the book. I finished the story feeling uplifted and happier, and I think you will too. It's a quick, entertaining read, and I highly recommend it. It's definitely going on my shelf of books to keep and read again and again." - Kimberly Job (read full review here)

"Tristi's books are always a treat and I'm guaranteed a good read. This is the first fiction/mystery of Tristi's that I've read. She's an accomplished writer of historical fiction and those will continue to be among my favorite books. I'm not usually a fan of mysteries, but this light and amusing story provided me with an enjoyable few hours." - Karen Clark (read full review here)

"I have to admit that even though I've served in a few Relief Society presidencies, I've never taken my job quite this seriously. We could all learn a thing or two. Putting aside all the illegal acts Ida Mae and her presidency participated in, they really did know how to serve and watch out for the women in their stewardship. I feel a new motivation to personally maximize my own calling." - Kimberly Coates (read full review here)

Thanks so much, everyone, and stay tuned as the blog tour continues through the end of the month.
