Just Add Spice - Carol E. Wyer
Escape from reality comes in patent-leather Prada kneeboots
Dawn Ellis needs to escape from her painfully dull existence. Her unemployed husband spends all day complaining about life, moping around, or fixing lawnmowers on her kitchen table. The local writing class proves to be an adequate distraction with its eccentric collection of wannabe authors and, of course, the enigmatic Jason, who soon shows a romantic interest in her.
Dawn pours her inner frustrations into her first novel about the extraordinary exploits of Cinnamon Knight, an avenging angel -- a woman who doesn't believe in following the rules. Cinnamon is ruthless and wanton, inflicting suffering on any man who warrants it. Little does Dawn realise that soon the line between reality and fiction will blur. Her own life will be transformed, and those close to her will pay the price. Find out what happens in Just Add Spice by best-selling author Carol E Wyer.
I was asked to review this wonderful book.
The characters are so believable and makes you think that you are them. The story starts off with a bored housewife who joins a writing club. She writes about a feisty woman who has had some personal problems. The story goes back and forth between the 2 women. Cinnamon and Dawn are likeable characters who you can relate to and they way they interact with each other within the story. Cinnamon always giving Dawn advice, tips and sometimes becoming a feisty Dawn is so immense. The ending wasn't what I expected, but I did guess some of the stuff in the book.
I loved the way Carol E. Wyer tackles issues to do with places where older women can look for new ways to spice up their love lives and the fascination with certain shops and what's out there. It made me laugh and smile at things with the characters and it also made me feel sorry for the 2 main characters.
