I’ve Never Been to Vegas But My Luggage Has: Mishaps and Miracles on the Road to Happily Ever After, published by Thomas Nelson, is a fabulous new book by The Single Woman a.k.a. Mandy Hale! You may recall my recent interview with her as we sat down to talk singleness, sass, and salvation on Valentine’s Day. She told me all about Never Been to Vegas so I was particularly excited about reading it, yet I wasn’t prepared for how wonderful the book truly was! I laughed, cried, sighed, feared, and laughed some more with Mandy as I read through the book in four days! Ladies (and gents), if you want a lovely, worthwhile read to add to your personal library that can lift your spirits in more way than one way, then Never Been to Vegas is a must-read!

Never Been to Vegas is an in depth look at what made Mandy the phenomenal woman she today is as well as what beckoned her to launch The Single Woman blog and brand. Personally, I could relate to many of the situations Mandy shares: the first love, the pathological lying and controlling boyfriend, the elusive love of your life who you can never quite pin down because he won’t allow himself to be pinned down…this and so much more gave me common ground with Mandy. And it’s not just about love; it’s about life.

We travel almost a twenty year journey with The Single Woman from high school to “life school,” insanely odd jobs leading to an actual career, friendships–male and female, and yes, hardships. Never Been to Vegas also gives us an unabashed look into Mandy’s relationship with God which some are loth to share these days.

Mandy makes single look and feel fabulous. She’s not just waiting around for a knight in shining armor to rescue her–she’s become the knight! With the help of God, she’s learned the delicate art of saving your own self so to speak, balanced with reliance on Him as well as her tried and true loved ones.

Never Been to Vegas is an absolute must-read for women (and men) of all types and ages! It gets 5 Stars from me! Order your copy today and buy another for a friend!
