Hi there!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

Today, we're joining Rachel's Random Resources for a stop along their current tour featuring a NEW Romantic Comedy ready and waiting for you via Hera Books.  It's from author Kim Nash and from the moment you spot the cover, you know there's something good inside just waiting for you.  So gather your overnight bag and maybe pack a few extra days worth because we're heading off into the semi-unknown on an unexpected adventure as we discover...

About the book...
Maddy Young thought she had it all.

Swanky city apartment? – yep. Fancy car? sorted. High-flying career? – tick.
Even if she’s lost most of her friends because of spending all her time at work, and can’t remember when she last had fun, it’s worth it.

Until she’s suddenly made redundant. Now she’s 37, jobless, and after the breakup with the former love of her life, unhappily single.

Enter Maddy’s childhood friend, Beth, the owner of Growlers, the doggy daycare centre at Giddywell Grange, on a mission to make Maddy see there’s more to life than work.

Soon, Maddy is swapping spreadsheets for volunteer duty at the library, daily Starbucks for cups of tea with elderly neighbours, and her Prada handbag for doggy poo bags… And with Beth’s gorgeous brother, Alex, back from the States, Maddy starts to think that Giddywell Grange might just be her happy place.

But when her old life – and her old boyfriend - comes calling, will Maddy go back to the job she loved so much? Or will she discover that the key to happiness lies in making others happy?
An uplifting romantic comedy that will warm your heart – perfect for fans of Cathy Bramley, Milly Johnson and Katie Fforde.



See what I mean about the cover?  I just love a good illustrated one, and this one screams of cuteness, but the story inside is actually quite different.

Maddy's life has been turned on its head.  Just when she thought all her hard work was finally paying off, BOOM...redundancy.  Thing is although this isn't the ideal situation for her, it is a time to collect herself, reflect on her life, and perhaps if she's lucky, refocus on the things that really matter.  You see, as with most of us in this GO GO GO, ACHIEVE ACHIEVE ACHIEVE world, she lost sight of what's important, pushed away her other dreams and desires that didn't fit the work goal she was aiming for, and accepted love that was less than what she deserved, but never really SAW it for what it was.  NO, really...even after everything that happened, she actually considered...the word yes escaped her lips....meetings were had...and just ugh!  I was beside myself when the ending rolled around, I'll tell you that.  Anywho...

When all seems lost, that's when Maddy, the REAL Maddy, seems to be found....along with a little behind the scenes help from her best friend, Beth.  Yes, she did really need her help when she was recuperating from surgery, but she didn't have to send her to all those places; she did so to help her reconnect with the person she was while reconciling "her" with the person she'd become.  It was sweet, it was eye-opening, it was just what she needed even if she didn't know it at the time.

All in all, an enjoyable read for Women's Fiction and Chick-Lit fans.  The only drawbacks for me were A)  I didn't really see the "comedy" in the "romance" (as in the sub genre it was granted), B) I really enjoyed the outings she was sent on, but at some point it seemed like a few TOO many (I loved her finding herself, but wished it was a little faster), and C) that ending...or rather things leading up to it.  Oye!  I just could not believe things were unfolding like they were unfolding.
