my review...

Nothing ever turns out exactly as we want it, and nothing is perfect. Sometimes when we try to plan and control, know what happens then. Our plans go down the toilet:) That’s what happens to Ava in this book. Too much planning and too many perfect pictures. Sort of like the ridiculous “my wedding” scrapbooks we put together back in home economics. I think Ava thought she could have her high-falutin’ fiancé and everything she’d pictured. Tim, her fiancé, had a completely different picture in his little “wedding book”.  

If you have read my reviews, you will have seen me write that romance is not necessarily one of my favorite genres. Maybe you’ve seen it enough to want me to STOP saying it. Except, I’m pretty plain-spoken. Nothing has changed concerning my feeling about the romance genre, but I certainly did enjoy this book. It’s as funny as it is romantic. Definitely a comedic romance. It has characters you can laugh with and enjoy and sometimes your heart will be right there with Ava.

Anyway, this is a feel-good type read. Something to make you smile. So...enjoy.

W S Carmichael also has other books published. All have good reviews.

read an excerpt...

The problem with a dramatic exit is what comes next. They never show you that part in the movies. You never see the tough heroine stumbling down a hotel hallway, her feet tired from traveling all day, alone and confused in a strange city, holding back tears as the realization her life has been flipped upside down settles in.

No. They never show you that part. They fade to black and pick up two years down the line when she’s found her happily ever after.

Where the hell is that fade to black button? Because this is the part I want to skip. I want to skip the binge eating and the ugly crying. I want to skip the ‘why me’ phase. I want to skip the explanations to my friends when they ask what happened. I want to skip all of it.

about WS Carmichael...

WS Carmichael is attempting to write the world into romantic bliss one novel at a time. Based in upstate NY, she travels as often as her hectic schedule will allow. When she isn’t busy writing, she’s a mother, nurse and avid sportswoman.

WS Carmichael fell in love with romance at an early age when she would sneak Harlequins from her mother. A voracious reader, she eventually made the jump to writing.

Writing is her passion and she’s always jotting down new storyline and character ideas. Often, her characters take on a life of their own and don’t always cooperate with her plan for them. Creating well developed, strong alpha male characters that don’t fit into the typical romance hero mold makes her novels exciting and relatable. A woman who believes whole heartedly in happily ever after, she gives her heroes the heroine they deserve.
