5.0 von 5 Sternen Maybe My Favorite of the Series 10. Oktober 2013
Von April - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have to say this might be my favorite of the series! Sure Poppy is quirky but she is lovable and even if you aren't into all the natural health stuff, I am sure you can relate to her in other ways. Poppy has some things to step back and really look at. Pride is depleting her of joy and enjoying all the blessings available to her. She will, at some point have to pull that plank out of her eye but then don't we all at some point or another.

Not only is Poppy's journey filled with introspection and growth, but also with some pretty "hot" guys. This will keep you guessing through most of the story as to who is really best for her and will she figure it out or continue going it alone.

I definitely sped through this one yesterday and was very happy with the outcome! The characters, their flaws and strengths, and the story in general made for a very good read. So pick up Book 3 to see if Poppy can make peace with her past and her present, while embracing all that God has for her now and to come. 4 1/2 Stars

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fun Chick Lit 9. November 2006
Von Armchair Interviews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Poppy Clayton knows who she is and it has nothing to do with what she wears, or does it? Just because she cares about the environment and refuses to buy new clothes doesn't necessarily mean she is clinging to unfinished business in her past. And the fact that she never goes on a second date probably means she is selective, not that she can't get the second date if she wanted to, right?

But, when her father dumps a house on her that should be condemned and her antithesis showers her with attention, Poppy wonders if her friends are right and she's lost herself. While her desperation scale ramps up, so does her need to exert control even if the only thing she has control over is how many miles she can run over her lunch hour. The question is, can she find herself before she loses it completely?

In this third installment of the Spa Girls series, readers finally get to learn what makes Poppy tick. And what has always come across as a little eccentric now looks rather obsessive--which is good, because I've always related well with her friends, the Spa Girls, who sneak truffles behind her back. Who really has the self-control to always drink wheat grass in the face of organic chocolate?

Kristin Billerbeck has breathed life into another flawed but loveable character. As usual, once I started reading, I may as well wipe the calendar free of any other obligations, because putting the book down is not an option.

Armchair Interviews says: No one does chick lit like Kristin Billerbeck.

4.0 von 5 Sternen CHISTIAN CHICK LIT 11. Oktober 2006
Von Libby - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is the third book in Billerbeck's "Spa Girls" series. Poppy's story is the one depicted in this novel. I loved the first two books in this series, so it was just natural for me to pick this one up as well. I can't say I loved it as much as Lilly or Morgan's stories, but nevertheless it was a good read.

I don't know exactly what it was about this book that left me feeling a like something was missing, I enjoyed it, but it was definitely not one of my favorite books I have read recently.

3.0 von 5 Sternen calm, cool, adjusted 9. Januar 2007
Von S. Mynatt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This was the last book of a trilogy. I thought it was the best out of all three. I guess because i liked the character in it, and felt that she was more real than the other lead characters in the other two books. Still out of Kristin Billerbecks books, I liked her first books... Shes out of control, ect... This trilogy wasn't her best.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Not bad, but not too good, either 25. Januar 2013
Von Ms. Mentor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I really enjoyed the first two books of the Spa Girls series--especially Morgan's, which truly seemed to sparkle (no pun intended). But this one? Not so much.

I understand that Poppy needed to be "flawed," and that her central problem was that her fitness/control/body stuff was actually getting OUT of control...which was presented as a reaction to trauma she'd had in the past. But a lot of her "trauma," when actually explained, didn't seem like it was all that terrible or that it should have left the "scars" it apparently did.

For example--the author mentions something about the terrible things that took place in Poppy's childhood home and somehow hints that Poppy's father deserted her and her mother, even brings in a second wife who seems to be painted as something of a homewrecker. Instead, however, the actual story then unfolds that Poppy's father did NOT desert anybody; that he didn't marry the second wife until after Poppy's mother's death (which he was perfectly free to do!); and that, when Poppy really remembers things about her childhood, she starts talking about how much happiness was within the walls. So what in the world would be so traumatic about her going back to her childhood home? Other than being embarrassed because the place was in poor repair and cluttered? Like that should cause her the unending angst of wanting to run away constantly?

Another thing about Poppy that I found extremely offputting was the chip she carries on her shoulder constantly. She slams and insults people seemingly without a shred of self-doubt or concern--only realizing afterward some of the terrible things she's said to people might actually hurt them! She lambastes even the doctor who mentored her, earning a well-deserved scolding from his receptionist (at which point I was cheering). A little bit of "snark" in chick lit is part of its character; this woman, however, takes snark to a limit that no one should have tolerated. Poppy is pretty much totally unlikable all the way through this, which comes as a surprise since she's a much more likable character in the other books. I got the feeling the author herself didn't like Poppy, didn't understand Poppy, or didn't really want to write Poppy's story but was kind of "hemmed into" doing so by the trilogy requirements...and the result is a book with a main character who acts like a snob half the time and a victim the other half--and like a Christian, almost never.

I stuck with it to see if her character would learn anything in the end, and in the end, Poppy does soften a bit--but only the fact that I enjoyed the Spa Girls' interactions in general kept this book from hitting the wall. Not the best example of Christian chick lit you could pick up, and not a great end to the trilogy.
