“Okay girls,” Fran announces as we get out of the car. “Café de Flore is one of my favorite restraints in Saint-Germain and I don’t want you two having a catfight once we’re seated. I’ll go see if I can get us a table and you settle your differences before you join me.”

Book: Rendezvous On The Runway by Melody Carlson, Zondervan Publishing, 2011
Rendezvous (On the Runway) 
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Target Audience: Girls 17-25
Subjects: Fashion, Friendship, Relationship with family (sisters), Dating relationships, alcohol
Summary: The Forrester sisters are on the runway again – this time in Paris! Erin’s role as Jiminy Cricket isn’t as needed this trip. Paige has sobered up more after seeing a young girl killed due to the careless choices made. However, she’s also not ready to finish growing up and Erin is a definite target whenever something doesn’t go her way. Erin is finding it hard enough to be forced in front of the camera multiple times without her sister getting mad when someone acknowledges her instead of Paige. Then there’s the guys. There are about three guys pursuing Erin and at least two actively pursuing Paige. What’s a girl to do with all this attention?
Notes: Just like the last book in the On The Runway series, much more is taught about fashion than faith. However, this book does a better job than the last one. Erin is taking her concerns to the Lord in prayer and Taylor and Blake actively witness to a group of people. Sadly, the Bible and turning to God’s Word for wisdom isn’t a part of it though. However, once again, good moral lessons are taught. Taylor, being the character from the Carter House Girls series who struggled with alcohol addiction and went through rehab and became a believer, shows up again in this series and shares her experiences and views on the danger of drunkenness to any who will listen. There is also a little section on showing love to others and what that looks like when Erin gets things Paige wants and has to decide whether or not to give up everything of hers for her sister just to make her sister happy.
Recommendation Scale: 2/5

Mark 12:31 –The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
