Enter Ashley Wilkes Stockingdale (her mother was a Gone with the Wind fan). She's your typical, everyday, Christian girl - who lives in Silicon Valley with a Martha Stewart wannabe, is a patent lawyer, and can't figure out why on earth her boyfriend of nine months won't pop the question.

She's Out of Control is an apt title for Ashley's goofy life in this second book in Billerbeck's Ashley Stockingdale trilogy. Unlike other poor little rich girls, though, Ashley is completely loveable in her crazy antics. The novel begins with Ashley lamenting the confused interest of her boyfriend, geeky bald engineer Seth. When he scurries off to India for a job, Ashley's left in a state of total confusion, with the puppy he bought her rapidly increasing in size and destructive qualities. You can also add in the total infatuation of an ex-boyfriend, uber-hot doctor Kevin Novak who's recently converted to Christianity and is certain God thinks Ashley is the girl for him.

I raced through the novel, giggling all the way, eager to find out what happens to Ashley and her gang of Reasons - California-Christian singles from her church. Billerbeck leapt into the genre of Christian chick lit with her first enjoyable trilogy (and has made a splash with her second, the Spa Girls novels). You will laugh your way through She's Out of Control as you try to understand what might be happening in Ashley's seemingly unstoppable imagination.
