LOVE AND LAUGHTER Mar 30, 2002
Get ready to roll... with laughter, as K. D. Kenton takes you on a wildly hysterical ride through book one of her `Crooked Falls' series.
Crooked Falls is small town U.S.A., a small town like any other. Or is it? Lizzie is 39, divorced, mother of two teenage boys, and has a razor wit with which she observes life in her little town as she tries to defy being single. Throw in a German mother with a thick accent and a roving eye who is sure her daughter will die a `born-again virgin', and you're ready for the ride of a life-time through the population of Crooked Falls.
In a rather last ditch attempt at breaking the ties of singledom, Lizze tries everything from calling a classified love ad, to cyber chat rooms. From there, Crooked Falls, or at least Lizzie, may never be the same.
If you love to laugh, and love to read romance, this is the book for you. From the moment I picked it up, I laughed and chuckled through Lizzie's antics. Written in the 1st person, which is something I usually avoid reading, I was quite taken by the skill with which the author pulled off the difficult task of making all the characters familiar and loveable. Visit Crooked Falls with Ms. Kenton, you may never want to leave...
Truly DysFUNctional Tale Mar 27, 2002
In the fictional town of Crooked Falls, divorcee, single mom, real estate agent Lizzie and her brood put the FUN in dysFUNctional. The family includes Lizzie, her two teenage boys and her wacky German-accented mother. Alone and lonely, the last straw falls when Lizzie's "ex" turns up dead in the back yard of a neighboring house, which Lizzie has refused to try to sell because the smell left behind by the cats makes it a "No-no" on the market. What could the possible relationship between Lizzie's Chihuahua-loving "ex" and the neighboring cat lovers be hiding? Desperate, Lizzie begins internet playing on her son's computer in the basement. Somewhat agorophobic, she is not prepared for the possibility of actually having to come face-to-face with any of her cyber dates. One by one, they end in disaster, from the country hick who has passed himself off as an opera star to the guy who "just wants to be a friend." Lizzie escapes by faking a dreaded disease or locking herself in the restroom at the local bar. Can this poor agorophobic loser find happiness at the end of her modem? Whether she can or can't, the trip is hilarious. You will find yourself not only empathizing with poor Lizzie, but you will laugh yourself all the way through the book. It promises to be just the beginning of a series which will bring more fun from Crooked Falls.
