Sleeping Beauty is a fantastic book! It is an outstanding romance!I loved it! It is so funny and exciting that I could not put it down and now I want to read all Judy Bayer's books, because she is really great!
An entertaining and touching read Jan 31, 2008
"Sleeping Beauty" is a charming novel by Judy Baer about a young woman, Suze Charles, who has had issues with sleepwalking her entire life. Her college escapades are legendary! Her mother is in denial that Suze still sleepwalks now that she's grown up. Her sister is adopting a baby from South America, and must leave her "vivacious" 4 year-old twin sons with Suze for a couple of months! Suze is considering turning down a great job that will require much travel because of her "problem". And now she's met a handsome doctor who just happens to specialize in sleep disorders! What a tangled web Suze's life is. This novel is never dull - that's for sure!
Judy Baer creates realistic characters, witty dialog and laugh-out-loud funny situations. And in the midst of all of this creativity and color, she manages to sprinkle deep, meaningful lessons that minister to the reader's heart. I was particularly touched by the "never give up" message incorporated in this book, as well as the illustration about how, when we are bruised, beaten and battered, we tend to cling to our tattered lives because they are familiar rather than looking around to see how God had brought us to a beautiful and bountiful place. Bravo, Judy! Your book entertained and touched me.
Judy Baer does it again! Oct 17, 2007
Suze Charles is up for a longed-for promotion in her company--the only drawback is that she has to go to Chicago to interview, and the job requires lots of travel. This is a major problem for a chronic sleepwalker who manages to get into legendary nocturnal rambles.
During the trip to Chicago, Suze meets an impossibly gorgeous man--unfortunately, while she is sleepwalking. David Grant seems fascinated by her, but when Suze learns he's a doctor, specializing in sleep disorders, Suze wonders if his interest is in her as a person or as a case study.
When Suze needs to babysit her Terror Twins nephews while their parents go on an extended trip to South America to get a new baby sister, Suze is overwhelmed and even tries to stay awake all night so she doesn't accidentally sleepwalk when the twins are there. But that leaves her less than alert during the day, and the boys get into all kinds of mischief. Dr. David even seems to like her nephews. If only Suze could be sure of his attentions...
Sleeping Beauty is a fun chick lit with a heroine with an unusual problem: Sleepwalking! I laughed out loud at several places in this book, and had to keep reading to find out what Suze (or her nephews) would get into next. David is the perfect hero for this book, a sleep disorder doctor. He's also compassionate and friendly, the ideal doctor.
I totally loved Sleeping Beauty. It's a light, fun book perfect to read after a stressful day, or to unwind after a daily routine. It held my interest from beginning to end - and I'm looking forward to reading Judy's next book. Bravo! Discussion questions are included at the end.
Armchair Interviews says: Judy does it again-she has cornered the inspirational chick lit market.
Romance and Humor, a great combinationi Sep 26, 2007
Suze Charles has been a sleepwalker all her life. Her family and friends can tell hilarious stories about her escapades. Suze has a hard time joining in the fun because she doesn't remember doing anything, and she's tired of being embarassed. Now she has an opportunity for a great job, but she's afraid of leaving home for a new location. When she leaves town for the interview, she booby traps her hotel at night, so she can't get out of the room without waking up. She wakes up all right, down in the lobby in her nightclothes, facing David Grant, a sleep disorder specialist. David is sure he can help Suze, but she's been that road too many times. However getting rid of Dr. Grant proves to be almost impossible. He even likes her twin nephews, Timmy and Terry, who give new meaning to the words "holy terrors." Thirty minutes with those two is encough to make even the most dedicated suitor think twice about getting married. Judy Baer tells a terrific story. Her characters are funny, warm, and compelling. Sleeping Beauty has enough romance, emotion, conflict and humor to keep the reader turning those pages.
