    It's quite a journey trying to follow Annie get herself out of the pickle she is in even though it's not of her own making. From getting acquainted with the nosy neighbor, to learning about the young man with all the metal fastened in various places on his body, to meeting the very eligible man on the cruise ship, Annie's adventure gives the reader not only a time to laugh, but also a time of reflection on how we view people we don't know very well. Karen does a great job of tying all these characters together in a well written story. I recommend it highly.

    Kindness, Family and PICKLES

    I highly recommend In a Pickle by Karen Robbins, it is a very cute and witty book and there were parts that truly had me laughing out loud. The personalities of the characters are very life like, in fact, Annie Pickels reminds me SO much of my own grandmother, for better or worse… Which is to say that, while overal Annie Pickels is very lovable, there were parts where her thoughts or actions were endearingly annoying, in the way our own families can sometimes be. This book left me longing for my own family... and lots of pickles!

    I was a bit nervous when I saw that this book is considered Christian Fiction but, to be honest, while reading it I don’t think I would have noticed it was Christian Fiction if it did not say that on the back of the book. Annie Pickels is a spiritual woman, she is comfortable with her faith and does not push it on others (or by extension to the reader) which was refreshing for me.

    Overall I, very much, enjoyed In a Pickle and I can’t wait to see what sort of mishap Annie finds herself in next.

    A copy of In A Pickle was given to me to read and review.

    I highly recommend this story about Annie Pickels, a sweet, refreshing widow who is willing to give a chance to a troubled young man. And another kind of chance to a handsome older man. In a Pickle is a fun and heartwarming book, well written, and definitely worth the reading.
