Ah, the life of the upper-crust: decadent, flaky and not so good for the heart.

Jane Lofton has everything she ever dreamed of: a high-powered career, a fabulous home, a wealthy husband, David, and a beautiful daughter, Brynn. Of course, David also has a new girlfriend spending his old money. Brynn also has a therapist helping her articulate her contempt for her mother. A

Did you ever meet someone who always seemed to be the giving type of person? You know the kind I mean, the ones that always give the perfect gift, know exactly what to say, or just randomly do really nice things. In the Social Climber of Davenport Heights, we meet Jane Lofton. On the surface, she seems to have it all. She has a family, a thriving career, beautiful home, lots of money, etc.

After a life changing experience with an 18 wheeler, Jane makes a deal. She promises the “Man Upstairs” to s

Jane Lofton is a self made woman. She has a high-powered career, a fabulous home, a wealthy husband, and a beautiful daughter. She knows her husband is cheating, but she feels that her life style has a price. She is willing to bear his cheating as long as her world is not upset. Then, she is in a near fatal accident. She makes a deal with God to let her life and she will dedicate herself to DOING GOOD and DOING THE RIGHT THING. She discovers this means more than writing checks to charities.
Got three stars because it was entertaining, not particularly well written. Fun book for a lighter choice.

Wonderful gem!

I thought this sounded fun and light. It was predictable in a good way... it was happy and inspiring just like the airline's life changing event. It was more than just an easy read. There were some good lessons there.
I really enjoyed this book. I was hesitant as I didn't think I had too much in common with the main character, but I always enjoy her writing so I went ahead with it. I found it very touching and liked the message of the book.
It was OK. Nothing fantastic.

The back stories on some of the more important characters were never told. It left some questions as to why these people were so important to the story.
