Becca by the Book is the third book in the Getaway Girls series by Laura Jensen Walker. Becca in unusual in her book club; while the rest of the group is Christian, she's firmly noncommittal, and that doesn't just apply to religion. Becca can't seem to commit to a job, hobby, or guy, so her pals bet her that she can't date the same guy for the next three months or twenty-five dates. She can't pass up the dare and accepts an offer for coffee with cute Ben, who just happens to be a Christian and many of their dates end up involving the church. I am a huge fan of this series that doesn't focus so much on a woman's finding the right man as finding where God wants her to be in life. Becca is searching for a way to give in a meaningful way; Kailyn just thinks that happiness comes with a husband and children, but her dreams are on the stage. Walker has thrown together a wide variety of women with someone to please every reader, and each one has a something to offer. Becca is a breath of fresh air with her refusal to believe that she needs a husband and her fierce determination that while Jesus is cool, Christians usually aren't. Walker writes Christian fiction that should please Christian and secular readers with a intelligent main character and a sweet non-romance. I can't wait to see what's happening next in this series!
