“The Winners Circle” by PJ Colander is book three in the “Faith, Family, Frenzy” series.

Any needed background information is incorporated in the natural narrative of this book. Readers new and old alike shake their heads and ask themselves “Why are some people devoted to chaos and determined to live in turmoil?” Regular readers will als ...more

I’ve enjoyed every book in this series and “The Winners Circle,” wraps up this trio in the best way possible with plenty of humor and pathos to keep you reading to the end. You know, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book… Where could P. J. Colando go next?

Steve and Jacquie are the perfect Midwest farm couple. You sense their love for one another with each turn of the page. In Book One, called “Stashes,” (Read my review on colleenchesebro.com) Jackie and Steve Breeden, your average hard-wor

Winning the lottery would be boffo, right? When middle-aged midwesterner Bonnie wins the Boffo Lotto, she comes into life-changing money, but does that automatically make life grand? Perhaps! In PJ Colando’s The Winner’s Circle, good-natured, god-fearing Bonnie takes new husband Carl and sister-in-law Jackie (and her hubby Steve) on a whirlwind worldwide trip, while her other bestie Fran elects to stay home and watch over Jackie’s farm and her own preacher-husband Paul.

The travelers find themsel

I was born and raised in the Midwest, but unabashedly aspired for adventure elsewhere, following my parents' model.

I live in southern California, where seasons seldom matter, where any promise can be conjured and fulfilled. I write while my husband watches TV sports, which are always in season = often.

My genre is Boomer Chick Lit. I write humor and satire with a literary bent.
