From Bags to Riches


I have always enjoyed Sandra Bricker’s novels with their humorous and sometimes quirky twists as well as their spiritual content. This particular series seemed to me to be a tad less humorous than previous books but I found each of the three books of the serious to be excellent.

“From Bags to Riches” is the final installment of Bricker’s Jessie Stanton series and I am so sorry to see the series end. I have loved reading about Jessie and Danny’s relationship ups and downs from the very beginning and can happily say I thought things ended well for them. I also liked watching Jessie’s values change over the course of the three books and was quite pleased with some decisions she made in this one.

Emotions ran high in “From Bags to Riches” – from joy one minute to grief the next. I’ll admit I shed a few tears a time or two. Overall the entire series was enjoyable and gratifying to read. I eagerly look forward to Bricker’s next novel.
