Chase Andrews and Josey have tied the knot, and now Josey is ready to settle down in Gull Lake, Minnesota and find the perfect house of her dreams, a Cape-style house right on the lake. But right as Josey finds the perfect house she discovers that Chase has lost his job, and not only that, but he took another job — in Russia!

Josey is less than thrilled and when she finds out she is pregnant right before leaving the states, she doesn’t know what to do. Tell Chase and ruin his dreams, or keep her mouth shut be the perfect Proverbs 31 wife, and follow him to Russia?

But Russia is not the Russia Josey remembers or idealized. Now her husband is working long hours with sexy underfed women, and she is left on her own and gaining weight. Her husband thinks she’s getting fat and lazy, but she’s having trouble finding the perfect time to tell him he’s going to be a father…

Chill Out, Josey! is the sequel to Everything’s Coming Up, Josey and readers will want to read them in order. Josey is entirely loveable trying to make a perfect life out of imperfect circumstances, and outrageously funny at times.

If you ever wondered what it’s like to be pregnant in Russia, you won’t want to miss Chill Out, Josey! I highly recommend this book. Josey is realistic, Chase is the typical male, and the setting is very much a part of the story. Awesome job! Discussion questions are included at the end of the book.
