This is one of the worst books I've ever read. I didn't particularly like either character. It read like a bad travel journal. I understand this is a series. I won't be reading anymore!

¿A Series of Adventures for Two Moms¿ 4 stars
Opal is my favorite character in this book. She is a wacky 70-something woman who tells Elizabeth, who is in her 50¿s, to take chances. Liz had a dream to see England. Her childhood friend, Kellie, had a dream to have her own interior design company. They set off to tend to their dreams.
This book is made up of many small anecdotes. This makes for quick, enjoyable reading. Gunn writes with an understated humor and a keen sense of character development.
This easy-breezy book is one to read and recommend. All mid-life mothers will see the humor in it.

This book was an absolute joy to read. I think this book ranks as one of the best Sisterchick books ever (tying with Down Under). The main reason is because going to England has always been one of my dream getaways. And I will finally get to live it out when I go on my honeymoon next year! So this book gave me lots of ideas of what to do when I go. Going to a high class tea time is a must. And I would love to visit Oxford and pretend I was a student there. Seeing the crown jewels and watching Big Ben will be high priorities on my list. I could understand Liz's frustration with wanting to go to the city immediately instead of hanging out in the countryside. While I did enjoy reading about their adventures with the twins, I wanted them to experience the big city. I could totally relate with Liz about seeing British literature come to life first hand. I mean almost all the great classics are from British writers. I can't wait to experience Jane Austen's world, pretend I'm riding the train to Hogwarts or walking around London waiting for Aslan to whisk me away to Narnia. I can't believe that Kellie didn't know who any of the characters were. Oh I feel sorry for people who don't like to read lol. The friendship between the two women is great and it's wonderful to see how their relationship grows. Everyone needs a sisterchick in their life! This book has made me so excited for my upcoming trip that I am dying to go now (forget a huge wedding, let's plan the honeymoon! j/k!!). This book is a great armchair traveler. Once you've finished reading you'll be craving fish and chips with a spot of tea and and will start speaking with a fake British accent. This is one of my favorite fiction series ever and I can't wait to see where we get to travel next. VERY HIGHLY recommended.

When I first picked up this book I was a little skeptical, because I'm an early twenty-something and I was unsure just how exciting a book about two best friend fifty-four year old women could be for me in particular. Well, it doesn't matter their age, the story and the message was wonderful. The only European trip I have ever had was a five day fabulous exploration to London with my sister. It was a last minute trip (back when you could make last minute flights) and is the best vacation tha...more When I first picked up this book I was a little skeptical, because I'm an early twenty-something and I was unsure just how exciting a book about two best friend fifty-four year old women could be for me in particular. Well, it doesn't matter their age, the story and the message was wonderful. The only European trip I have ever had was a five day fabulous exploration to London with my sister. It was a last minute trip (back when you could make last minute flights) and is the best vacation that she and I have ever taken. We never ventured out of London on the trip, but every minute was well worth it. Reading this book brought back many memories that had been dormant and accelerated my desire to return someday as well. (Or maybe go to Scotland to see where my adventurous sister lives now...). Dreams and hopes are something that we all have. A wish is something that we make to help them come to light and push toward coming true. This book is about looking in yourself and finding what your dreams are, and making them work and showing you how God wants you to have all of your dreams and desires of your heart.

Though in their early fifties, best friends Kellie and Liz have dreams since they were teens they hope to one day fulfill. Kellie still wishes to start an interior design business with Liz as her partner Liz wants to visit London, a dream she has had since she was a teen. ---- Elderly neighbor Opal is going home to England to see her sister. Liz and Kellie decide to join her. As the Sisterchicks swing through England, they run into trouble, fog, and a good time while meeting nice people (for the most part), but also begin to understand that God knows their inner wishes whether the Lord grants them or not. ---- Fans of the series will want to accompany the Sisterchicks on their tour of Britain, which instead of the Romanism of Bronte starts as traffic like can be found in New York. The story line is actually more a series of anecdotal tales rather than a novel, but fans of the adventures will enjoy the SISTERCHICKS GO BRIT. ---- Harriet Klausner

I enjoyed reading about Liz an Kellie and their lives. This is my first sister chicks book and I enjoyed it. I recently went to England and it was like being there all over again. The subway and seeing the sites. I was fun to hear about the things Liz and Kellie did and how surprising it was they were able to be there in the first place. The Pancake relay was fun to hear about and the historical information about it. The Balloon ride. There were some jokes in it that made me laugh out loud. I can't wait to read the next one. Although, I found that each book has new characters. This book was like being on tour in England. Extremely enjoyable.
