I’ve been searching for Mrs. Plaid Man my whole life, but I always miss out. I’m the Big Slick, so close to winning, but another hand always wins. I’m too slow to react. That’s how I missed out on a relationship with Lindsey, and part of the reason I had to move to this small town. But now I think I’ve finally found her. But she doesn’t seem to remember me, no matter how many times I talk to her. And let me tell you, there’s only so many times a man can get his ass kicked by a woman.
I’m a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, “No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book.” I didn’t think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn’t already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven’t been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.
Review of The Big Slick: A Small-Town Romance (A Good Run of Bad Luck, Book 7) by Giulia Lagomarsino
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
I loved Plaid Man’s story. Poor guy was beaten down at every turn, but he finally found his footing and figured out that the woman for him was there all along, all he had to do was man up, stop mistaking his girl for her sisters, and realize that what they have is forever.
I really love Giulia Lagomarsino’s books. She has a great way of telling a story and bringing out the authenticity of the characters. They are funny, flawed, kind, generous, and real. I loved this story of Jake and Elle finding their way to each other and Elle’s family was hilarious. I loved that the Cortell brothers showed up in this book a bit more too. It was entertaining to read about another crazy family, crazier than the Cortell’s, I think. This book was a fun read, but also had some heartbreaking moments too. I loved it and I am looking forward to more stories by Giulia Lagomarsino to come. I will always buy her books and devour them. I give this story a 5-star review.
I read lots of books, from mythology retellings to literary fiction and I love to reread books from childhood, this is a place to voice my thoughts for fun. I also like to ramble about things such as art or nature every now and again.
