Books to make you laugh or fall in love with, are like a tonic to the body and mind. You become uplifted and carried along with the story and they contain a real feel good factor. The best part is that you can pick up a good book any time or place to relive the feeling, or pass it or its recommendation along to a friend.
When you combine a little romance with comedy you have a lovely recipe for a story.
Romance doesn't have to be in the classical of romance. Romance can simply be the place, the setting, the words used, and the whole story as it evolves.
My book Mommyville On The Road To A PhD in Parenthood contains a little bit of romance between a number of the characters. It is subtle in parts, while all parts are inter-connected in a story which is heartwarming, charming and captures the very essence of a wild and rural Irish landscape and setting.
There is even a bit of romance between the local dogs on the street which causes its own fun and problems along the way, when the poshest lady in town has some serious issues with a pedigree vs a mutt!
See how a handsome stranger coming to town wins over the hearts of the local girls and see what chaos he causes to Clare who has agreed to give him lodgings in her house before the "big wedding".
It is full of tenderness in parts yet bursting with comedy throughout as Clare gets herself in and out of tricky situations, and the "lively" kids cause havoc along the way or simply act as kids do, living moment by moment, with very funny consequences for all!
So in essence this is one of those romantic comedy books with a difference. I think because it is a bit different, it will appeal to more readers because it has a little something for everyone. It has romance, it has comedy, it has what I think is a good story, it has real life mishaps and mayhem, it has the funny things kids say and do in addition to the sweet and sentimental things they say and do!
The story unfolds over a number of real life situations, so you really feel like you are there, witnessing everything that is unfolding in a very upbeat, uplifting and humorous way. It really is about living in the moment and what happens when you don't take life too seriously!
