A Recommendation

Have I ever mentioned Holy Mama before? I don't think I have, but I've been reading her blog for forever now it seems, and she has got to be one of the funniest women I've ever read. Don't believe me? Read her latest couple of posts. Go ahead. I'll wait.....

Done? See what I mean? So funny! And she has a book. A Love for Larkspur. One that I meant to review so long ago and never did.

The storyline is good. The characters are real and believable. And it's a funny, easy read. I read it almost a year ago (has it really been that long?) and I still sometimes think about the characters. I love books like that. They draw you in. You make friends with the characters. Seriously, get the book and read it. You'll love it.

From the back cover:

Lark-a twentysomething, strawberry-blond, freckle-faced Texan-has had enough of dating geeky, weird guys. So when her sociable mama suggests she pre-screen some guys for Lark to date, Lark's just desperate enough to say yes. After all, with her three low-level jobs and the classes she's taking, she's not likely to snag The Someone anytime soon. But with her mama's Man Getting Project, she might just have a chance.

When Brant Stephens, her old classmate who lives down the street, tells her she resembles a sick cat, she chalks it up to him being the most boring, mean, and predictable man on earth. He's got more degrees than she can remember, more annoying personality flaws than she can count, and all the gorgeous, shallow dates he could ever need. So why does he feel led to insult her every chance he gets?

And what's with all the eccentric flamingos popping up around town?

Sounds great right? You can get it at amazon.

*I did receive a free copy of this book long ago. Not really for the purpose of review, but because she was giving them away at her blog. The review was my idea.*
