Welcome to our spot on the Just Add Spice by Carol 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.
This is a great book for the over 30 crowd, and I mean that in a good way! It's a book that us older women can really relate to! We've all been there, when we wish our lives were different, that we had more excitement, etc. And how many times have you said "I should write a book"? So Dawn is a VERY relatable character to the reader! The author does a super job keeping the reader hooked, with characters and situations, that could be from your own life, with plenty of humor to keep you laughing! I loved how as Dawn's fictional character Cinnamon was the pre-curser for all the changes Dan made in her life, and in her own personality as the book developed- it truly was a mirror for her life! This was a very enjoyable read, one one that is perfect for.sitting by the fire with a cup of coffee reading while the kiddies are in school!
