Catch the fun wave when Sisterchicks Do the Hula (4) in Robin Jones Gunn's new release. Readers follow Laurie and Hope through their midlife coming of age during a Hawaiian vacation far from hubbies and kids—except for the little stowaway Hope carries. Pregnancy at 40 will send a woman seeking God big time. Laurie struggles with the idea of moving to a new home now that her children are grown and hides the photography talent God has given her. After all, her husband is the famous artist in the family, and she doesn't want to compete with him or subject herself to the criticism he has endured. Hope's bumbling attempts to help backfire with surprising results. (Jan., 198 pp., $12.99)
