Four Stars From Romantic Times!

Romantic Times review for A BAD DAY FOR SORRY:

(4 stars)
Expect the unexpected with Stella Hardesty, who’s quite the intriguing character. She’s 5-foot-6, overweight and out of shape. Since her 50th birthday has come and gone, menopause has kicked in as well, which doesn’t help matters any. From Stella’s opening remark, “Whuppin’ ass wasn’t so hard. What was hard was making sure it stay whupped,” the reader can’t help but be drawn into her world and wonder where it will all lead.

Stella, who runs a sewing shop in Missouri, also helps battered women get rid of their abusive significant others. And lately it’s been taking up a significant amount of her free time. When a young woman asks for help, Stella thinks her case will be pretty straightforward. But when the woman’s husband disappears with her 2-year-old son, Stella is in a dogfight, trying not only to save the little boy’s life but her own too.

See? All these smiles and not a drop of rain. Bah. And you were worried.

Hear, hear. Of course, you're allowed to worry, 'cause it's your book. That's why we're all here to tell you you're nuts to worry.

So psyched to see yet another glowing review. Can't wait to get my hands on a copy!
