Cecelia by Patricia Strefling

Chicago entrepreneur Cecelia Grace Giatano is rich, beautiful, and successful. She can step into a boardroom and handle business affairs with faultless finesse, but when it comes to personal relationships, she's clueless. Running from the insecurities of her lonely childhood, she will stop at nothing to achieve her dreams.

When opportunities of a lifetime land in her lap, Cecelia feels as if she's sitting on top of the world until she attends her younger sister's wedding in Edinburgh.

Suddenly her existence doesn't look as exciting - or fulfilling. When Cecelia's perfect life begins to unravel, Spencer Hallman, her faithful business associate, is there to pick up the pieces. However, Cecelia's protective walls are too thick and too high to see the love he offers. Will she make another bad decision and lose it all?

Patricia Strefling reads and writes hoping to instill encouragement and inspiration in everyday people living everyday lives. With three grown sons and five grandsons, she lives with her husband in Southwest Lower Michigan.

Skip it The main character is portrayed as cold hearted and shallow unless she's led by a man. Her worth is nothing unless she's told what to do by a man. This one is preachy and the author doesnt portray new money or upper classes well. Such a shame because God gives these gifts. It dragged and I felt sends a very wrong message with much finger pointing. It was stiff. I was insulted - why was Cecelia portrayed as immoral heartless demanding self centered etc. just hecause she was successful? What a slap to women who God calls to be business leaders or to remain single! Too pedestrian and unyeilding. First book was far better. This one spend your money on a donation to the poor.

I read Edwina and loved it so I couldn't wait to read about her sister. It was sweet and enjoyable; however I think it should be.99 and not 2.99 but it was a good read.
