Item description for Dreaming in Technicolor: The Sequel to Dreaming in Black and White (Phoebe Grant) by Laura Jensen Walker...

Phoebe jets off to England in order to temporarily escape her less-than-perfect life. But what awaits her in the land of "Mrs. Miniver" and "Notting Hill" is nothing short of disaster . . . and nothing less than a miracle.

Publishers Description

Everyone's favorite film geek Phoebe Grant heads off to Merrie Old England-and changes her cinematic dreams from black and white to living color.

Phoebe's family has money troubles. Her spiritual life is dragging. She misses her long-distance best friend, Lindsey, terribly. But all that's bearable because of Alex, the gorgeous man who shares her love of movies and actually likes women with a little meat on their bones. At last-someone to kiss on New Year's Eve

But by New Year's Eve, Alex is in London, called home by a family emergency. Newly engaged Lindsey has turned into a long-distance Bridezilla, and the snooze button still sabotages Phoebe's morning quiet times. She needs a break, which is why she jumps at the cheap off-season fare to England.

She's not chasing Alex. Really. She just wants to broaden her horizons. But what awaits Phoebe in the land of Mrs. Miniver and Notting Hill is nothing short of disaster . . . and nothing less than a miracle.

Reviews - What do customers think about Dreaming in Technicolor: The Sequel to Dreaming in Black & White?

Another Great Phoebe Grant Novel!  Jun 3, 2006
Join Phoebe Grant as she takes advantage of a cheap airfare to England, leaving her problems at home in the States. Of course, it's convenient that Alex, the man who seems perfect for Phoebe, has gone to England to help his own family.

I laughed with Phoebe and shared her disappointments throughout her journey toward realizing what God wants for her life. The ending was surprising but satisfying.

Although I've never been a single Christian woman, I loved this book and easily identified with Phoebe. Her trials are those of a Christian woman, rather than of a single Christian woman. The "single" element merely highlights Phoebe's individual problems, which we all have in one form or another.

Walker's real-life writing is humorous and "spot on," as the Brits say. I hope she plans a third book in this series, because I'll be in line to buy it!
Phoebe Grant is back and better than ever!  Mar 29, 2006
It's hard to beat the first, but "Dreaming in Technicolor" by Laura Jensen Walker comes pretty close to being even better than the prequel, "Dreaming in Black and White". Phoebe's escapades span to England this time in the pursuit of romance with her love interest Alex Spencer. The fun starts there! From losing her luggage, dealing with a bridezilla best friend nack home, to meeting the other woman vying for Alex's attention, Jensen tells the story with her trademark humor but not letting Phoebe forget about her faith. While the ending was a shock, it was an ending that needed to be for Phoebe to stay true to herself. I HIGHLY recommend this book!!
Well Worth the Time...  Mar 4, 2006
This is the first Laura Jensen Walker book I have ever read. I ordered both this and Dreaming in Black and White. This one showed up first and so after holding out for Black and White (the prequel) for a week or so I decided to read it anyway. Though I would definitely recommend reading Black and White first (I still plan to when it actually shows up) Technicolour still stands on it's own fine if you haven't.

I loved this book. I read it, pretty much in one sitting, in a day. I found Phoebe to be very real and very likable. Admittedly the movie quotes get a wee bit cloying for those of us who aren't movie buffs but they're part of who she is. The only gripe I have with it is (and I'm trying not to give away the plot here) that her reaction to one particular event I found too 'nice Christian' to be real or believable.

I don't know if Laura was reaching her word limit or running out of time or what but I felt that what was in the book wasn't true to who Phoebe was. It started off with promise and then quickly fell into the 'God uses all things for good' trap without any of the self reflection/obesession/neuroticism/self doubt that most of us go through before we manage to get there (if we even get there at all).

Apart from that it is a fantastic read for a lazy weekend. Or better yet curled up in front of a fire with a bowl of ice cream!! Don't expect anything particularly deep and meaningful (or life changing) but it's definitely well written, entertaining and a good escape.
hilarious christian fiction  Feb 27, 2006
i thought that this book was very entertaining. it was just as good as the first and was just as humorous. laura jensen walker can really relate to woman and can make everyday life an adventure. highly recommend. i would really love to see a third about phoebe! unique references to movies if you are a film geek like phoebe.
Unbelievable - Even Better than Black & White!  Jan 6, 2006
Smart and sassy Phoebe Grant is back - and is as endearing as ever! I gave book one, "Dreaming in Black & White," four stars - Technicolor gets a solid five. I thoroughly enjoyed tromping through England with fellow film geek and hopeless romantic, Pheebs. She's as real as they come, and I found myself snickering through her relationship snafus and retail therapy sessions. This book is more than just fun and fluff, though. While Phoebe furiously seeks to rekindle her relationship with Alex, she rediscovers the true meaning of love: the love of God.
