Finally, at long last, a novel with a heroine who isnít drop-dead gorgeous, rich, and possessed by the perfect man. Meet slightly overweight, frizzy-headed, single Jonna Lightfoot McLaughlin, religion reporter for the Denver Dispatch. Sister to Matthew, Mark and Luke, located in the mile high city of Denver, Colorado, Jonna is seeking a warm, funny, inspirational story - and she is certain the story is out thereÖ somewhere.

What she does find is the seedy underbelly of religion, a man with a God complex, evasive Buddhists Monks whose temple has burned to the ground, and a minister who misuses his authority as a representative of God. But she can do nothing about any of it if she canít prove it.

Through her investigation, Jonna meets extremely handsome Terry Choyce, the director of a community center. She daydreams about him and canít seem to quite get through interviewing him. Other than her many visits to the center, Jonna makes no advances on Mr. Choyce, though she finds him to be intoxicating.

With the help of her big brother, Matt, her supportive editor, Skip, her savvy fellow-chocoholic colleague, Hannah, and friend/neighbor Ms. Rodriquez, she may break the biggest story of the year and find some of that inspiration after all.

Jo Kadlacek writes with a style that is comfortable to the reader, endearing of her characters, and that progresses at a good steady pace. A Mile from Sunday is the first installment of the Lightfoot trilogy, an honest, enlightening Christian- themed storyline. Jonna Lightfoot McLaughlin is a character worth journeying on with.
