Number-cruncher-turned-missionary Jay Jarvis and his poetry-enthused girlfriend, Allie Kyle, are in for the trip of a lifetime. Joined by their friends, sports enthusiast Steve Cole and lime-lover Darcy Yeager, they head into the Outback of Australia, hoping for adventure.
As the girls catch up on their girl talk and plan their next sight-seeing activity, Jay and Steve do a little planning of their own. With marriage proposals on their minds and little black jewelry boxes in their pockets, the guys chart out the perfect opportunity to pop the question. But will roo-chasing and busted Land Cruisers spoil their plans for perfect proposals?
Ray Blackston's side-splitting humor, quirky characters, original poetry, song, and electrifying dialogue are back in this exciting sequel to Flabbergasted and A Delirious Summer.
"Though Blackston often tackles difficult issues through zany escapades, in this novel he goes a bit deeper, fitting with the maturing of his characters. Those who've enjoyed his previous novels will be relieved he didn't skimp on the humor, despite the serious themes. The free-flowing plot keeps interest throughout the book. The epilogue wraps up the story with a satisfying conclusion. Recommended for singles and anyone ready for adventure."-- Katie Hart, ChristianBookPreviews.com
"With his trademark blend of quirky humor and spiritual insights, Ray Blackston concludes his Flabbergasted trilogy. Readers will love the laugh-aloud hilarity of this book. This fun book is filled with intelligent humor, and real-life people and situations that most people can relate to."--Christian Library Journal
