Funny. Stuart always makes me laugh. I pass her books around and they make my friends laugh too.
nice cute easy read depicting heidi - a woman adjusting to new motherhood, work, marriage, etc.
Chick (Mommy) Lit with a Christian slant. Lots that I could relate to. Easy read.

Kimberly Stuart wants you to know that authors write their own bios and are hardly reliable sources, particularly if they are writers of fiction. Nevertheless, there are a few facts that stand out:

1. Stuart loves a good story, both written and lived.

2. Stuart loves imported chocolate and her children, though the order of her affections sometimes gets muddled.

3. Stuart writes comedic women's ficti...more
