Turtles in the Road By Rhonda Rhea

Sometimes a detour takes you exactly where you need to be.

Piper Cope was so sure the Lord called her to be a pastor’s wife. So when her pastor/fiancĂ© breaks it off, she’s every kind of puzzled. Does God even have a purpose for her anymore? On the road halfway between the bridges she’s burned and some kind of new start, she encounters the most unexpected detour. She swerves on a rainy road to miss a turtle and ends up in a ditch with an airbag to the face. Now stuck in this little town, she wonders how in the world she could’ve gotten her God-signals so very crossed. And how in the world is she supposed to know what He wants her to do now? In the meantime, at least the community center guy, Jay Marler, has her working a temporary job there. Problem is, somehow she’s coaching a children’s basketball team. She does not…basketball. And she certainly does not children.

Rhonda Rhea is an author, speaker and TV personality who says, "a good psychosis is a terrible thing to waste." She says she's milked hers--even as a Bible teacher. Rhonda is a funny lady who speaks at conferences and events nationwide.

Anyone interested in writing and speaking? Rhonda advises to have five kids. "They're not cheap but they're a great source of material." Her five are now grown but she says they're still providing great content for her books, speaking events and radio and TV appearances.

Rhonda works with Christian Television Network's KNLJ in Jefferson City, Missouri and WHTN in Nashville, Tennessee. She is a pastor's wife, happily married and living in the St. Louis area. She is a humor columnist for many magazines and is the author of 12 books, 11 nonfiction--including the new co-authored project with Beth Duewel titled, FIX-HER-UPPER. She also has a brand new, super-fun fiction project co-authored with her daughter, Kaley Rhea. It's a hilarious Christian romantic comedy called, TURTLES IN THE ROAD. Rhonda says she will keep cranking the books out as long as the Lord allows. --And the psychoses hold out.
