Publishers Description
Can you have your (wedding) cake and eat it, too?
Betsy Blessing is about to have it all-the chance to be senior minister of Church of the Shepherd and a long-awaited first date with her best-friend-turned-love-interest, David Swenson. But David's unexpected marriage proposal and a developer's surprise offer to buy the dying downtown church building thrust Betsy into a whirlwind of decisions. Betsy's future mother-in-law, editor of "Budget Bride" magazine, plans to feature the nuptials in an upcoming issue, but is Betsy ready to buy her wedding gown at Goodwill and register for china at Chips-n-Dings? And not everyone at Church of the Shepherd thinks relocating to the suburbs is a great idea. Can Betsy persuade the naysayers that she can lead them to the Promised Land?
Factor in a homeless man named Booger, a demanding parishioner with a broken hip, and David's clandestine meetings with his former fiancee, and Betsy has more than she can handle. Is happily ever after out of reach for the fabulous Reverend Blessing?

Reviews - What do customers think about Earth to Betsy?

Excellent service  Jul 28, 2006
The item arrived very quickly and in great condition. My wife was very pleased.
 
fine character study   Jun 24, 2006
Though they have supported one another as they developed their ministries especially the socialization and are attracted to one another Reverends Betsy Blessing and David Swenson never went out on a date until now. However that first date turns into something much more as David proposes marriage. Before she can react, Betsy finds herself attending an engagement party, hers.

Still in shock and not even sure she said yes, Betsy soon is the center of whirlwind activity as David's mother takes charge of the ceremony. While her future mother-in-law, editor of Budget Bride magazine, places high demands on her time, Betsy also worries about the future of her "graying" downtown Church of the Shepard congregation that suffers major financial woes ; she has a bidder that she must consider, but that means relocating in the Nashville burbs.

This sequel to the terrific HEAVEN TO A BETSY is a fine character study that like its predecessor provides a spotlight on the life of a minister. Betsy is a wonderful person struggling between those in her congregation who insist the Promised Land is the suburbs and those who feel it is heresy to abandon their downtown church. As difficult and politicized the issue is dealing with her future mother-in-law is even harder as Betsy just can't say no, which makes her look indecisive and weak. Beth Pattillo provides a fine tale that her fans will enjoy though the plot lacks some of the uniqueness of the first novel.
