Tooting the Horn…Linda Bolton…

A few months back…I wrote a post about…reading…Linda Bolton’sTake 2…because…Bertha…was nudging me towards romance…and at the time…I was home washing clothes and cooking Brussels sprouts…

Now…I’m generally not a romance reader…but…I have to say…the book must have impacted me…because in less than two months…I was in a wonderful relationship…one that…just like Linda’s heroine…Alexandria Daniels…I never saw coming…

I know…crazy…

I’m not going to go on and on about my personal life…but…I will tell you a bit more about…Take 2

Alexandra Daniels is forty-something and hard-working in and out of her home. Her life has been plodding along at a snails’ pace and she’s longing for excitement. She wins a trip to her favorite talk show in New York, the Veronica Becker Show, and it just so happens the actor of her dreams is a guest, Derek Dunbar!

Derek Dunbar is Scottish, an actor and a hunk! Every woman in America drools after him. He has his pick of women but stinks at relationships. At forty, is he longing for a more meaningful relationship? Does he even know how to have one? Is he willing to make the effort or will it just be too complicated?

It’s a great book…available in paperback and Kindle…so…if…Bertha…is nudging you towards a little…romance…why not…give it a read…

PS…I still wash clothes and cook Brussels sprouts…hey…I told her I liked them…

Romancing the Kindle…

Bertha…has been bugging me this weekend…something to the effect of…it’s spring…love is in the air…why am I sitting at home…alone…washing clothes and cooking Brussels sprouts…

I’ve tried to explain to her that my clothes are dirty…and…I happen to like Brussels sprouts…

Of course…we all know that flimsy attempt at the truth…was nowhere near enough to deter…Bertha…when she’s on a mission to disrupt the status quo of my life in some way…

So…she continued…saying…I need a little bit of romance in my life…

Well…I can’t say I disagree with her…but…I defend myself…there’s no one to have a little romance with…hello…it still takes two to tango…but only one to eat Brussels sprouts

Even that didn’t stop her…as she handed me my Kindle…with…Take 2…by Linda Bolton…already opened and ready to read…

Ahhh…a little romance novel…now why didn’t I think of that…

She goes on to say that…Take 2…is the perfect book for me to start with…because Alex…the heroine…who is just your average over forty woman…is…someone I could relate to…the coolest part is…the hero…is a hunky movie star…who has grown tired of…fake relationships…and wants a…real woman…in his life…

And as good as that sounds…the best part is…Take 2…is only…$3.99…how’s that for a cheap date…

I have to admit the premise of the book is intriguing…and the price is definitely right…even on my budget…besides…Bertha’s…right…I can use a little romance in my life right now…

Hmmm…if…I am what I read…then…maybe…just maybe…
