Book Review- Divine Appointments

 A book review: 
Divine Appointments by Charlene Ann Baumbich

From the back of the book:
With the big 5-0 fast approaching Josie Brooks begins to question her structured, picture-perfect (mid)life. 

This book showcases the hardships placed on several different lives due to an economic downturn and a company's choice to down size and re-group.   The main character in the story is Josie Brooks, an independent woman who moves from town to town working as a consultant hired on to large companies to help the companies work more efficiently.  Our story picks up from there as we meet the characters who meet the ax due to Josie's recommendations as well as the ones that scrap by and keep their positions. 
The story was a slow read for me I just could not seem to wrap my mind around the plot line and really enjoy this book.  I had a hard time understanding some of the links to a mysterious snowglobe and had the hardest time relating to Josie her  thought process a whole lot different then my own.  This was an interesting book but not one of my favorites and a bit of a chore for me to finish 
I give this book a 2 out 5 stars. 

This book was provided free to me through blogging for books in exchange for my honest review.  This review is my opinion and is not at all influenced by the company.
