Welcome, friends, to our monthly book club announcement and prize giveaway. If you’re stopping by after reading Marybeth’s devotion for Proverbs 31 Ministries, you picked a great day to visit. Not only are we announcing our featured book club selection for June, She Makes It Look Easy, but it also happens to be the latest novel of She Reads founder, Marybeth Whalen.

She Makes It Look Easy is a novel for every woman who has looked at another woman’s life and thought I want what she has.
Ariel Baxter has moved into the neighborhood of her dreams-and the chaos of raising three children moved with her. Then she meets her neighbor, Justine Miller. Justine ushers Ariel into a world of clutter-free houses, fresh-baked bread, homemade crafts, neighborhood playdates, and organization techniques designed to make marriage better and parenting manageable. Soon Ariel realizes there is hope for peace, friendship, and clean kitchen counters. But when rumors start to circulate about Justine’s real home life, Ariel must choose whether to believe the best about the friend she admires or consider the possibility that “perfection” isn’t always what it seems to be.
Marybeth Whalen has been married to Curt for 19 years. They have six children and regularly answer the questions: “Are they all yours?” “Are they all from the same marriage?” “Are there any twins?” and “How do you do it?” (Answers are as following: yes, yes, no, and we have no idea!) When not chasing children or trying to schedule a date with her husband, Marybeth enjoys writing, reading and serving as co-director of She Reads, where she does her part to share fantastic fiction with other women who love a great story. She is the author of The Mailbox, and She Makes It Look Easy.
