I have been waiting way too long for a new book by one of
my favorite authors, Kathy Carmichael. I'm pleased to say
this one is well worth the wait! I have never laughed or
cried so hard as I have with this truly wonderful book!
I'm just so sorry to say that I read this book in a matter
of hours because it was such a fun read. I simply had to
know how things would turn out for our heroine, Jill Morgan
Poor Jill has way too many things going on in her life.
One is her beloved son, Stephen is a senior in high school
and though he is artistically talented, he is no brainiac
so there's no chance that he will be getting a full freight
scholarship to college. Two is her ex-husband Daniel Storm
is now Stormy Daniels. Don't even go there! Three is even
though she is sous chef at La Papillion and has been
covering for the Master Chef who has a serious drinking
problem for years now, her career isn't going anywhere.
Fourth is she really wants to find a new man in her life.
Fifth is her father is in jail for a white collar crime for
which he says he is innocent.
Jill with her best friends gets the brilliant idea while
trying to plan her mother's and father's 50th wedding
anniversary party to make up a survey and send it to all
the women who have been married for some length of time
trying to find out their secrets for the longevity of their
marriage. Jill also somehow gets the bright idea that maybe
dating traveling salesmen is the way to go as far as a new
man in her life.
This, my reading friends, is just the tip of the iceberg in
the oh so messed up life of Jill Morgan Storm in this
hilarious new comedy by the incomparable Kathy Carmichael.
I guarantee this is one you will not want to miss!
Calm, cool, and premenopausal, single mom and chef
Jill Morgan Storm has set out on a scheme to find and wed a
traveling salesman. In return, she hopes for one week of
marital bliss, three weeks off while her new husband is out
of town, and a nice monthly paycheck.
Enter Davin Wesley,
the opposite of the type of man Jill is searching for—an
elementary school teacher who refuses to skedaddle out like
a good little husband. Jill isn't sure if she can keep up
the protests because his kiss is pure fire and he won't be
discouraged. Suffering from hot flash after hot flash, she's
unsure if she can say no as her hormones scream yes.
