What's Up The Street For Next Week

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood.
Sunny skies.
Cool breezes.
Baseball games, tennis matches, and soccer fields.

And among it all - there are reviews.
Yes, that's right!

And we happen to have a review RIGHT here to spice up the Weekend Notes! Krista Phillips' debut novel doesn't come out until next month, but there are already whispers among the libraries that it's a book worth reading.
What do I mean?
Library Journal Review had this to say about Krista's novel, Sandwich With a Side of Romance.

“Former bad girl Maddie Buckner is a recent convert to Christianity. She moves to Sandwich, IL, with her 11-year-old brother in the hopes of a fresh start. Maddie gets work as a hairdresser but loses that position when she accidentally cuts off a huge chunk of a customer's hair. She gets a job at a restaurant, The Sandwich Shop, and starts to develop feelings for her engaged boss, Reuben. When someone sets out to sabotage the expansion of the restaurant, Maddie investigates. VERDICT Full of romance, humor, and mystery, this debut novel will put Phillips on the CF map and win her followers of Philip Gulley and Phil Callaway.

WAY TO GO, Krista!!!
