Book Review – My Favorite Husband

My Favorite Husband

When I saw the book My Favorite Husband by Pam McCutcheon all I was thinking was that no matters what I have to see how this story ends. The title had me intrigued but I started to read and the story began to unfold all I kept saying in my head was that the very thought of this situation was insane. I don’t like to give out spoilers so here is the blurb that the author has written for the book.

My Favorite Husband BlurbAfter five years of being lost in the Amazon, archaeologist Chaz Vincent has finally come home to his wife, Kelly, only to learn that she has had him declared dead. When he attends his own funeral, Chaz finds out that Kelly married another man just that morning. Now she has to choose between them. Who will be her favorite husband?

As I read more and more about Kelly as she tried to figure out which husband she was going to choose I had several laugh out loud moments. There was nothing, and I truly mean nothing, straight forward about this situation because each of these individuals seems to have more than one love interest that seems willing to go to extremes to get this guy or gal. The back and forth reactions of the characters in this story had me laughing and I enjoyed every moment I spent reading it. It’s an amazing change of pace and I strongly recommend this book.

So go on over and check out My Favorite Husband by Pam McCutcheon and see what you think about the story. You can find it on Amazon.

Book Review – The Chocolate Cure

51iQRnIEifL

I love chocolate and a good book, and I must admit I read this book because of the title, The Chocolate Cure (Love at the Chocolate Shop Book 4) by Roxanne Snopek. It caught my attention and I wanted to know what it was about. That being said, I’m glad I let the chocolate lead me to this story, it was an enjoyable read. The main character Maddie, like most of us, is beautifully flawed but trying her hardest to get things together. Her method of self-correction was through the use of a new years resolution. I think a lot of use have been there, and she is determined to stop what she perceives as a downward spiral of her life due to bad choices. The opinion she has of herself and where she is right now as a person is close to self-loathing about her perceived failure.

Despite that, life has different ideas for this character, just like it often does for us, and the things she thinks she must give up are now clamoring for her attention. Facing her fear and sticking to her principles despite the consequences is something this character does and I couldn’t help but cheer for a happy ending for her. Life is not always easy and we often make choices, then second guess these same choices again and again. I enjoyed discovering how Maddie worked her way through to get to point where she was happy with her life.

Have a read and see what you think of, The Chocolate Cure (Love at the Chocolate Shop Book 4) by Roxanne Snopek.

Book Review – She Sins at Midnight

shesinsatmidnight

I’ve read a lot of books, but She Sins at Midnight by Whitney Dineen, this one had me laughing long and loud at the antics and comments made by the main character, Lila Montgomery. Here is the blurb so you have an idea of what the story is about.

She Sins at Midnight Blurb

Lila Montgomery, thirty-two-year-old Hollywood assistant extraordinaire, has a secret. On the outside, she’s a hard-working dedicated employee, a good friend, and a loving daughter. But above all else, she’s been raised to be a lady, which of course is why she’s determined to conceal her secret life. If her straight-laced friends and family back home ever discover that she is really the smashing new author of a steamy romance novel, their disapproval would shame her forever! That’s why Lila has chosen to publish her sexy narrative under the nom de plume, Jasmine Sheath.

With her fifteenth high school class reunion on the horizon, Lila finds herself at a crossroads. More than anything she wants to go home and see her childhood friends but is embarrassed that she hasn’t accomplished the things she feels she should have by this time in her life; mainly marriage and children.

After another brutal run-in with Melinda Forrester, Oscar nominated actress and client of her boss, Josh Furber, Lila decides that fleeing Hollywood for a month is the best thing for her. Lila packs her bags for her childhood home of Bentley Hills, sure that her friends and family will be the touchstone of normalcy that she so desperately needs. What she doesn’t expect is that Melinda will follow her and a tabloid media circus will ensue!

Not only does Lila discover that her home is nothing like she remembers, but she meets and falls in love with the very man that inspired the hero in her novel.

Now back to my opinion of  She Sins at Midnight. Just a page or two into the story I was laughing and truly enjoying every word I was reading. The author brought me closer into the lives of the characters and painted a riveting picture of the events as they unfolded. As an added, bonus Lila Montgomery is also an author and as we read this story, we also get to read parts of the book she had written as herself and various other characters in this book buy and read her book.

The story Lila writes is interlaced with the main story is just as witty and funny as the main story and adds a unique element to the book. Every part of this story comes together to be a truly entertaining read and I strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a fun story with a lovely ending.

Blurb

Three guys, three different personalities. But together, they make up her perfect man.

Some girls have all the luck.

Jolie Osborne, an up-and-coming real estate agent at one of Barbados’s well established firms, spends her days helping people find their perfect match. And she’s found hers… in Brian, Rafi and Nash.

For over a year, Jo has managed to keep her fast-paced work life and complex private life totally separate. At work, her colleagues watch in wonder as the free-spirited, easy-going shopaholic fashionably juggles a hot-tempered boss and clients who never quite seem to know what they want. After hours, she enjoys the company of three completely contrasting, yet amazingly alluring men. Life in paradise couldn’t be sweeter.

That is, until her sunny skies come to a stormy halt during her best friend’s charity dog show at Apes Hill. Jo’s isolated worlds suddenly collide and her neatly woven web of secrets start unravelling all around her. Her colleagues are shocked to learn the ugly truth. Natalie wants nothing to do with her. And her disgruntled lovers give her the worst ultimatum ever: love me or list me.

Can Jo put the shattered pieces of her life back together? Will she mend her broken relationships before it’s too late? And which guy will she choose?

Well what can I say about this book but yikes from start to finish but what an amazing yikes. Lol. I really enjoyed the story and understand what she was fighting to find, even though I know I could have never been as brave or as boldfaced as her to have three guys at the same time. Then again guys do it all the time so why can’t a girl. Just my opinion.

When it comes to the main character Jolie, I love her bold effervescent personality which she showcases in her choice of clothes. She shines as a person but the problem in her love life stems from her past and her inability to reconcile it in her mind. Her actions may be considered wrong by many but Jolie is a woman searching for the love she needs even though may say her methods were wrong.

Like I said before. I really enjoyed this story. The way how the truth unfolds about Jolie’s life made me smile. It was real and raw but the thing that touched me the most is that Jo grew as a person. The author is descriptive and I got a perfect visual of not only the characters but in the story but what they were wearing, the stunning properties and views they were exposed to and much more. A good read, no, make that a must read in my opinion.

Check it out and see what you think and let me know.
