The Icing on the Cake

The Icing on the Cake - Elodia Strain This is hands down THE funniest book I have ever read. I found my self laughing out lout so many times my husband finally asked me to go in the other room. I had tears in my eyes. This gem is full of humor and funny scenes that will brighten up your outlook on life. I picked it up at our local thrift store browsing titles and it will make it to the top ten ever read list. The first pages drew me in because they are set in the San Joaquin Valley where I graduated from High School. The rest takes place in Monterrey Carmel area of California which I adore. The setting is beautiful in real life and in fiction. Elodia Strain pulls off a witty, funny tale of love and chaos. Just when you think things couldn't get more interesting they always do! There were a few times when she gives the reader a few more hints than necessary... but really, I have not read something so hilarious in the LDS fiction genre. The main heroine Annabelle takes journal entries or "pink notes" through out the book which teach seeking the best in others and is reminiscent of The Cinderella Society by Kay Cassidy. Overall theme is to do the very best you can then leave things in the Lord's hands. Things will work out for good. Never did I feel the book was preachy or strained. The characters are lovable, the story line fast moving and it's a page flipper. The Icing on the Cake is good clean fun which I will gladly recommend to anyone and everyone! 5 stars to one of my favorite books read thus far.
