Something about MaudyTo My Congregation This first year as your pastor at Blackfish United Methodist Church has been a wild ride In the beginning I thought the bishop was crazy when he appointed me to your church He knew something had to change or the doors would close for good He also knew I needed direction in my life Perhaps the bishop was crazy crazy like a fox You never had a woman pastor let alone one who had once been an actress You b. Something not About MaudelinSomething About Maudy turned out to be something of a pleasant surpriseWhy had I expected the kind of chick lit whereby the greatest problem our heroine faces is hooking the alpha male And where she spends her meantime slipping through the clutches and claws of inferior sorts those not uite up to scratch – awful pun intended sorry Was I judging a book by its cover Blue Porsche sexy pink slip of a thing the young Maudy looks positively poured into the faithful felineI obviously hadn’t noticed the church in the background but was nevertheless taken by the cover to not want to read the blurb to just dive inWithout giving too much away the book is written in 1st person narrative hardly discursive but a free flowing chatty style that swiftly drew me into Maudy’s world not so much via my being a fly on the wall but as her confidant by the way she introduced to the characters making up her parish – she’s a pastor by the way how different and unexpected is thatCleverly though it isn’t so obvious at the beginning and – this is the last I’ll say re the story – Maudy against her nature flirts with a total stranger in a shoe shop – I think it’s a shoe shop; I know she gets her heels stuck in the carpet Ok maybe not but the point is – no pun intended this time – is that no sooner the flirting over and she’s having lunch with her guy who at least turns out to be bald so there’s hope for all of usBut no the book doesn’t take that route at all It’s a bit of a red herring And so I recommend you read this wonderfully philanthropic book one with an optimistic outlook a book that offers faith and hope without ever reverting to the trite or saccharin; it’s well worth it Well written

I didn't really know what to expect when I downloaded Something about Maudy with my KU subscription but I am glad I did Maudy's assignment causes a reaction in the town of Blackfish as she attempts to take control of her congregation and amid the 'goings on' and problems she has to face Maudy is uite a character she's strong flawed and funny at timesDelinda McCann has made Maudy believable and the same can be said for the secondary characters in Something About Maudy even John Wesley The MC is a modern woman in a modern world I enjoyed following her journey and the problems she and her congregation had to face It is written in the first so we really get to know Maudy At times she made me smile with her inner thoughts A well rounded story and a well written book
