None of her pre-baby clothes fit, her checking account is dwindling, and her mother-in-law has decided to move in! To top it off, her husband's attractive coworker suddenly needs his help every weekend. Middle sister Joan insists that God has the answers to all her problems, but Allie isn't so sure.

Age Before Beauty  Sep 10, 2009
Perfect For: Personal reading, book club choice

In a Nutshell: I really enjoyed this book. One thing that made it so great was the fact that I could view the characters and their problems or joys as REAL! The detail, the facts, the progression of events all seemed right, not over-done. As a first-time mother myself, I could relate to Allie and the things she was experiencing, as well as the emotions surrounding watching a new baby grow and making the hard choice to return to work or stay at home. Yes - for a business woman, this is a hard choice to make. . . until you are face-to-face with the little bundle of joy, and then you start looking for a way to earn money from home - yes, I've been there and done that, with a very understanding husband, but it took me quite a while to understand that my husband was happy to be the bread-winner. Allie gets sucked into a home-based-business (yes - I've given the same thing more thought than I care to admit), and then struggles when she is faced with the reality of how hard it really is. . . But with a great family and husband behind her, she ultimately makes the best of the situation instead of allowing it to get the best of her. This was a fun and inspirational book that touched my heart and made me smile.
Great story  Mar 27, 2009
Allie Harrod is a new mother who doesn't want to leave her baby daughter and go back to work. How can she bear to miss out on all the cute baby things Joanie does. Then she attends a Varie Cose party and decides she has a new career. She can hold the parties at night when Eric, her husband, is home to take care of Joanie. Then Edith, the mother-in-law who has never approved of Allie, leaves her husband and moves in with Eric and Allie. Now Edith is taking care of Joanie, Eric is sitting on the couch watching TV and Allie is feeling guilty. To top it off, Eric's beautiful co-worker seems to have plans for Allie's husband.
This is book two in Virginia Smith's Sister-to-Sister series, and it's a good one. A light-hearted story about love and family relationships as Alle struggles to set priorities based on what's important. Good addition to the series and Smith's fans won't want to miss this one.
There's More to Life Than Candy Coral Lipstick  Mar 9, 2009
In Age before Beauty, Virginia Smith seamlessly mixes comedic relief with cringe-inducing decisions by her characters. Just when you start to feel dread about an action taken by new entrepreneur Allie Harrod or her well-meaning husband, someone or something brings a smile to your face. And in this way you'll find you've finished the novel faster than you can say, "Put it on my charge card." Readers should find it easy to identify with Smith's believable characters and situations. One can't help but eagerly anticipate growth and harmony before the story's end, and Smith doesn't disappoint. Yet there are hints about the next installment in the Sister-to-Sister series that will make you want to check on the third book's release date. A quick, fun read for teens and up.
Virginia Smith does it again!!!  Mar 8, 2009
This is IMHO the BEST book that Virgina Smith has written yet. She continues to out do herself each time she writes!!

The characters in this book come to life as you turn the pages. This is an excellent book to lose yourself in!! Enjoy the escape and living someone else's life for a while. It's awesome!

I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
Spunky characters make Ginny Smith's books worth reading  Feb 28, 2009
I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this series, Stuck in the Middle (Sister-to-Sister, Book 1), and have been patiently (ok, not so patiently) awaiting the release of book two, Age Before Beauty. It was definitely worth the wait. It follows the oldest sister in the Sanderson family, Allie Harrod. She's desperate to stay home with her new baby - so desperate, in fact, that she's willing to become a work-at-home mom (WAHM) if that's what it takes.

It's not often I find a great WAHM character, so I was especially excited about Allie. She's smart, spunky and hilarious. She goes through so many of the same feelings I've felt along the way to becoming a work-at-home mom and it was fun to follow along on her journey. She knows it can be done and goes for it with her whole heart. What a fun read!
