A book a day...keeps insanity away! I am an avid book reader. When I am not reading, I love to play the piano, sing, or shop until I drop! Reading has been a huge part of my life since I was young and my Mom introduced me to the public library! Since then I have not stopped reading! I hope you enjoy my reviews!
Wish Me Love by Michele Ashman Bell, Blog Tour & Giveaway
Charlotte Wells does not date. After surviving a broken engagement, she’s taken a leave of absence from the social scene. So when her best friend and coworker, Jack, challenges her to get back in the game, she’s not so sure she’s ready to play. But ultimately, curiosity gets the best of her, and Charlotte accepts the daunting challenge: she will attempt to have fifty first dates in her effort to find “the one.” Unfortunately, she quickly realizes that the dating pool mostly holds clown fish as she goes on one lousy outing after another. Without a good man in sight as summer ends, Charlotte cuts her losses and sets her sights on a fun-filled trip to her cousin’s destination wedding in Brazil.
Brazil is a land of beautiful sights and delicious offerings—including Max, the charming brother of her cousin’s new husband. Max has all the makings of a Prince Charming in soccer cleats, and Charlotte’s happily ever after seems to be within reach. But love is a funny thing, and soon Charlotte finds herself wondering: could it be that her true love has been right in front of her all along?
I cannot lie, I was super excited when I saw that Michele Ashman Bell had a new release coming out! She has been a favorite author of mine for years and I may or may not have squealed like a schoolgirl at the chance to read and review her newest book! I loved Wish Me Love! Charlotte and Jack were larger than life, fun characters that I wanted to be friends with! I could completely relate to how they turned comments into a chance to break out in song! They were just so much fun! The more I read the more I wished that they could be together instead of just best friends! They supported each other and they just got each other!
When Jack suggested that Charlotte go on fifty first dates I was like WHOA there Nelly! But she was brave and decided to tackle it head on and oh my word, those guys and those dates! I mean, where do these people come from?!? I think the majority of women could relate to Charlotte in that she did not see herself as beautiful or special, yet she was. Sometimes it takes time to realize that we are awesome just the way that we are. I really connected with that part of the book and it is a nod to Bell that she can write a fiction novel that can make you connect and reflect on your own life. You will love this book and wish it would never end!
