Third Time's a Charm by Virginia Smith (Review)



Paperback: 327 pages
Publisher: Revell (January 1, 2010)
ISBN-13: 978-0800732349

About the book:
Can Tori balance career, family, love, and shopping? Tori Sanderson has the professional opportunity of a lifetime. If she can prove she's executive material, she's in line for a big promotion. But there's only room for one new account executive, and her co-worker has his eye on the job . . . and on Tori. How can she consider romance when she couldn't hold on to the one man who was supposed to love her forever--her own father? The time has come for answers, and Tori decides to search for the father who deserted her twelve years ago. Will she find the answers she craves? And will she ever be able to love again?

My Review:
I loved this book. It is the third book featuring the Sanderson sisters and my favorite. It is well written with an interesting plot line and characters. There are several lol moments amidst the more serious issues. Tori Sanderson is the main character in this book and the youngest sister. She has always had abandonment issues from their father leaving when they were children. She compensates by being a workaholic and shopaholic.

She works at a marketing firm and suddenly a job promotion comes available. A contest between her and her handsome co worker is set up by their boss and the winner gets the promotion. She also has a love interest her family is setting her up with so that adds some great tension to the story. Faith also plays a role in the book but it is not preachy at all. The ending has several twists I did not see coming. This book can be read on its own but I liked the first two books in the series too. This is the last book in the series and provides some closure as far as the other characters go but it is not wrapped up neat and perfect. Highly Recommended.




Thank you to Kathy Carlton Willis communications for providing me with this book to review.
