A Mile in my Flip-Flops by Melody Carlson tells the story of stuck-in-a-rut Gretchen who decides to buy a run down house, fix it up, then sell it. The book is rather typical of the Christian chic-lit genre. Gretchen was nearly "left at the altar" by her boyfriend and now wonders if she'll ever have another chance at love. Gretchen faces a number of obstacles yet finds love in the end. House flipping might have been an interesting theme a year ago but with the current economic crisis, I think the book will not interest many.
