This is an interesting book to me because a lot of scenes in the book are based on something that happened either to me or my family. One woman told me it was unrealistic, but I figured she had a boring family. I promise you most of the events are based on true stories.

Life in West Virginia is nothing like life in Los Angeles, but between bean ball battles with Marilyn Monroe, remodeling a crumbling farmhouse, and starting a new online business, life in the country is anything but boring.

Excerpt:

Chapter One
The dressing room door opened with what sounded like the opening salvo of the Civil War in the silent room. Aimee Sherwood jumped and banged her knee on the table in front of her. “Ouch, that hurt!” She shoved her blonde hair away from her heart-shaped face and glared at the man who stood in the doorway.

From his seat on the massage table, her fiancĂ©, Rocky Stone, and yeah, wasn’t that just a great old stage name, patted her arm. “Don’t worry, hon. It’ll soon be over.”

Sounds like the massage hasn't managed to make everyone relax.

What’s wrong with the two of you?

I love the sly humour in this, Elaine! My guess is we discover this at length ;-)

Looking forward to finding out about your family shenanigans. If they're anything like my family, I know it will be a fun ride! I already want to know more about these characters, so great start.

This sounds like a fun story. Truth sometimes is harder to believe than fiction, and yes, some families are just boring!

Rachel de Vine said...


Bean ball battles with Marilyn Monroe. That sounds intriguing on its own. Sounds like a fun family.

Families be crazy! XD
Great blurb and a hooking snippet. :)

Great first snippet ... love the blurb and look forward to reading more!

Caitlin Stern said...

What kind of parent does that to their kid? Unless he isn't actually named Rocky, in which case I question his choice of nicknames. And his lack of empathy!

Linda said...

They don't seem to have such a loving relationship. I wonder what they are going there together.

Cecilia Corona said...

Loved this scene, great snippet.

This sounds like it could be a story with quite a few laughs based on that blurb. Sounds interesting. I wonder why she doesn't like to be called hon.
