When I had entered the LibraryThing giveaway which I eventually won I didn’t realize for some reason it is actually part of a six volume series of novellas. I had originally envisioned it would be a novel in which a woman would be getting rid of everything related to a previous relationship she had been in; much, much more than merely washing that man, and everything else out of her hair.
After reading this first volume I’ve come to realize it would be series I’d definitely would love to read more of, but being the kind of book reviewer I am, I unfortunately don’t have the time to read the rest of this series while also reading and reviewing the books on my TBReviewed list.
What is a woman to do who has found a hunk of a single dad at her special needs daughter’s school when her past includes having her husband killed by his mistress and where she happens to be sleeping with this mistress’ ex-husband? Well for Jamie it is to develop a fourteen plan in which she’ll be able to totally renew her body, mind and soul.
Having a timeline format for the story where her reader’s will know what is taking place each day of Jamie’s fourteen day plan, including the time of day it is; and will make them feel as if they’re there, watching the action taking place and listening to the dialogue between the book’s characters.
Having flashbacks interspersed throughout the story should help readers better understand what is happening to Jamie and her life today.
For allowing me the opportunity to glimpse into the protagonist’s life and her transformation I’m giving Ms. Stradling 5 STARS. The above has been my honest opinion.
