The Man You Meet in Heaven by Debbie Viggiano @DebbieViggiano @bookouture #BookReview

Happy weekend all! Just for the record it is still Saturday for me, so I am not late!😇 I had a bit of a crazy day, I had an organizer at my house yesterday and it took her almost 24 hours to organize my house, and it isn’t done yet! Anyways I can’t find anything!😂🤣😂

Not a fabulous excuse, but it’s all I’ve got!

Excited to be on the blog tour for this fun feel good book! A huge thank you to Noelle for my invitation and to Debbie Viggiano for her lovely story!💕

The-Man-You-Meet-in-Heaven-KindleWhen Hattie Green pops to the shop one afternoon, she never expects her life to flash before her eyes between the tins of baked beans and a special offer on sliced white. One minute she’s loading her trolley and thinking about what to give her son for dinner, and the next she’s speaking to a gorgeous man in a glowing white suit about what her life could have been…

If you had the chance to go back and relive it all, what would you do differently? Go on that date, take that promotion… eat that second biscuit? Hattie is about to discover where she went wrong, but will her mystery second chance reveal some STONKING secrets in her past that probably should have stayed hidden?

A gorgeous romantic comedy from the bestselling author of What Holly’s Husband Did. Perfect for fans of Tracy Bloom, Marian Keyes and Dawn French.

My Thoughts

A funny feel good story….

This book was kind of a mash up of those old George Burns’ movies “Oh God”, and“A Christmas Carol“ kind of the story of the ghosts of boyfriends past… with the part of Shmoop being played by Josh… and I guess then Ebeneezer is played by Hattie, although Hattie has a much better disposition….. having said this I can absolutely see this book as a movie it would translate to the big screen very well!

Hattie has sworn off men after her marriage to a philandering husband ends… it is Valentine’s Day and once again Hattie’s mother wants to set her up… BUT Hattie is saved by the aisle sign…. yes the aisle 3 sign literally falls on her head scattering baked beans and leaving Hattie unconscious… she wakes up to find herself in the “After Life Lounge“ where she meets Josh…. I don’t know about you but if I had to relive my love life, I don’t think I’d be in heaven!

Even though this book had a lighthearted feel about it it did make you question some things about your own life…. would I change anything about my life if I could? In particular my love life? My own answer is a resounding no! Even though I am also divorced, there is a lot I learned from that… but even more importantly I wouldn’t have my kids if I had not married their father…. although it would be interesting and cathartic, just as it was for Hattie to revisit my mistakes in 4-D….

An enjoyable read that will leave you with a smile on your face, recommend to fans of romance and fun!💕

Cupid F*cks Up by Paula Houseman @PaulaHouseman @rararesources #BookReview

Happy weekend all!

As I am sure you can tell by the title of this book it is a romance that has a sense of humor, and I’m excited to share my review with you today! Thank you so much to Rachel for my invitation and Paula Houseman for her hilarious story😂🤣

Cupid Fcks Up and My Troyboy is a Twat

Cupid Fcks up ebook coverRuth Roth is a straight shooter. Pity Cupid’s not.

Smart-mouth Ruth is an inspirational humour columnist for a popular women’s magazine. Recently divorced, she has found the love of her life. Without any help, mind you, from the little fat love god. Ruth has decided she herself is her one and only.

And she’s in a comfy place. Why wouldn’t she be? No need to yell ‘Put the bloody toilet seat down!’ No need to hoover toe-nail clippings off the carpet.

But then a silver-tongued Prince Charming fronts up in his shiny Merc and tickles her discarded, little-girl fantasies. He tells her their love is written in the stars.

It must be a misprint.

A romance with this particular PC is not so PC! Still …

Ruth’s life plays out more like ancient myth than fairytale. And what hot-blooded woman can resist forbidden fruit?

There’s a problem, though. Ruth does not have a hot-blooded mum. Ruth has a pain-in-the-arse mum whose squawking disapproval cranks the taboo up a notch.

All the more reason to take up with the stud! But it means taking on the harpy.

Tensions mount, and even Ruth’s man can’t protect her from the trash-talking voices in her head. It looks like he can’t muzzle his own either. When an earth-shattering revelation causes him to give her grief, it makes her feel like she’s dating her mother.

Taking the kind of advice she doles out to her readers is not so easy, and Ruth wonders if this love can survive. More to the point, is it worth the trouble?

My Thoughts

Laugh! Out! Loud!

Love when the second book in a series is even better than the first! This book had a little more romance, a few more laughs, and a little more drama… we all really need someone like Ruth in our lives to keep us entertained….

Ruth has finally found the love of her life…. herself…. but Cupid and his arrows have different plans…. this book really is more of a romance then the previous book, but nothing beats a good romance filled with humor… but don’t worry Ruth’s meddling mother is still in full affect… afterall roof’s new love interest is a lifelong family friend…

This book oozes sas and Snark! A book that doesn’t take its self too seriously and yet addresses some pretty heavy issues…… A balancing act that is very well handled within these pages….

If you like to laugh so hard that tears run down your face this is the book for you! But I’d strongly suggest you don’t read this in public, u might get some odd looks!

Cupid - My Troyboy is a Twat ebook cover

Love, romance, marriage, and a dark little secret. Shh … Small things let loose can grow out of hand.

Ruth Roth’s new husband can’t keep it in. If only he had all those years ago, things might be different now.

His big mouth sends every family member into hell. Except for Ruth’s late mother. She blows in from there. Seems the woman just won’t die. Or let up. Faaaark!

As if Mama’s earbashing isn’t enough, everyone else needs a scapegoat. Ruth is it. Somehow, this mess is her fault.

With everything falling apart, she feels overwhelmed. Until a hunky celebrity pants man—who clearly wants to get into hers—befriends her and makes her feel all warm and fuzzy. At the same time, an educated silicone seductress has designs on hubby.

Temptation abounds. But it’s overshadowed when a startling discovery throws Ruth and her man into uncharted waters, and life comes crashing down.

Ruth has survived plenty with the help of her friends. And as a writer, her wry wit, dirty muse, and a bent for ancient mythology have sustained her. This, though, might be her undoing.

photo copy – Version 3Author Bio – Paula Houseman was once a graphic designer. But when the temptation to include ‘the finger’ as part of a logo for a forward-moving women’s company proved too much, she knew it was time to give away design. Instead, she took up writing.

She found she was a natural with the double entendres (God knows she’d been in enough trouble as a child for dirty wordplay).

As a published writer of earthy chick lit and romantic comedy, Paula gets to bend, twist, stretch and juice up universal experiences to shape reality the way she wants it, even if it is only in books. But at the same time, she can make it more real, so that her readers feel part of the sisterhood. Or brotherhood (realness has nothing to do with gender).

Through her books, Paula also wants to help the reader escape into life and love’s comic relief. And who doesn’t need to sometimes?

Her style is a tad Monty Pythonesque because she adores satire. It helps defuse all those gaffes and thoughts that no one is too proud of.

Paula lives in Sydney, Australia with her husband. No other creatures. The kids have flown the nest and the dogs are long gone.

A Laughing Matter of Pain by Cynthia Hilston @rararesources @cynthiahilston

A Laughing Matter of Pain

harrycover

Harry Rechthart always knew how to laugh, but laughter can hide a lot of pain that’s drowned by the bottle and good times. He grew up the joker in the early 1900s in Cleveland, Ohio, but as he enters adulthood, conflict splits him. His once close relationship with his brother, Erik, breaks as they come into their own and Erik goes off to college. No longer under Erik’s shadow, Harry feels he might finally shine and make others see him as someone to be proud of. Harry finds an unlikely comrade who understands how he feels–his younger sister, Hannah. Once free of high school, Harry and Hannah double date sister and brother, Kat and Will Jones, attending wild, extravagant parties during the years of Prohibition. Harry thinks he’s won at life–he’s found love in Kat, in a good time, and in the bottle. But all the light goes out fast when Harry’s alcoholism leads to disastrous consequences for him and Kat.

Harry thinks the joke’s on him now that he’s sunk lower than ever. He’s in jail. He’s pushed away his family. He’s a broken man, but in the darkest depths of a prison cell, there is hope. Can Harry rebuild his life and learn that true laughter comes from knowing true joy, or will he bury himself once and for all in this laughing matter of pain?Purchase Link:
