Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I hope you enjoy reading Mr Right and Other Mongrels as much as I enjoyed writing it. I set out to write a book that entertained and made people feel happy as they read it, so I hope that's the way the book makes you feel.

If you've never visited Sydney, Australia then I hope this novel takes you on a journey around my beautiful home town.

Thanks for taking the time to read Mr Right and Other Mongrels.

I love the characters in this book - lots of humour ensures that even the very annoying Moonbeam has some likeable qualities about her.

This book is a great escape to Sydney's fabulous northern beaches and if you like a rom com you will like Mr Right and Other Mongrels. Five paws for me.

This book is a funny and charming romantic comedy.

The plot reminded me a bit of the classic movie `Notting Hill' starring Julia Roberts, only here Allegra runs the bookshop and Teddy Green is a celebrity landscape gardener.

It is set against the stunning backdrop of the harbour and beaches in Sydney, Australia.

The characters are warm and have more depth than those from your average chick lit novel. I formed a strong affection for them by the end (except for Allegra's narcissistic mother - Moonbeam).

If you want to escape your world for a day or two I highly recommend this. Very enjoyable!

An unconventional free spirit with a serious dog phobia ... an over-excited Old English Sheepdog ... a dashing rescuer who is a national media icon and successful landscape designer ... and a whirlwind romance in a span of one month ... has Ally Johnson found her Mr Right?

Allegra "Ally" Johnson is a twenty-six year old free spirit who owns a second hand bookstore in Manly, one of Sydney, Australia's popular beachside communities. Born into an unconventional hippie family, Ally is content to live her solitary life in an apartment above her bookstore.

Edward "Teddy" Green is a national TV icon with a popular home and garden show and author of landscape design books.

While walking down the street, Ally encounters an over-excited Old English Sheepdog, and because she has a serious dog phobia, she goes into a full blown panic attack and jumps into the bed of a truck to get away from the dog. The owner of the truck and Ally's rescuer is none other than the national celebrity, Teddy Green. Ally doesn't know who Teddy is, she had gotten rid of her television years ago when her life began to revolve around her favorite shows. Teddy likes that Ally is unpretentious and not all into his celebrity status, he finds it refreshing.

A mutual attraction takes place between Ally and Teddy, but Louisa Lane, Teddy's jealous ex-girlfriend is determined to nix this budding romance and get back together with him. What happens next is a whirlwind romance in a span of a month, and Ally questions why Teddy chose her and how she could fit into his world, while he sets out to show her that he is her Mr. Right.

Mr. Right and Other Mongrels is an entertaining, flirty and lighthearted romance story.

This is a light, quick, read with like-able characters. It would make a great beach novel. My only complaint is that I want more of these characters! I can't wait until Monique McDonell's next novel is released!

Mr Right and Other Mongrels is a delightful tale about a down to earth Sydney book shop owner with a serious dog phobia and a habit of meeting the wrong men. When she meets hunky celebrity gardener Teddy Green despite her best intentions she finds herself falling way too fast. Set on the beautiful northern beaches with a great cast of supporting characters this light-hearted romance will have you smiling from beginning to end. Make yourself a coffee, curl up on the lounge and enjoy a few hours with the lovely Allegra.

Ok, so this is unabashedly, unapologetically chick lit. The author even admits it in her bio. I like that. So for the legions of chick lit fans out there, myself included obvi, who want pure escapism, and nothing more, this one appears to have been lovingly baked up and served just for us.

Here's what else I like....
Protagonist, Allegra Johnson- she is a smart, independent, free spirit. She owns her own small business and seems to be living a pretty nice life (if somewhat safe and unexciting except for any episodes involving her mother). Sounds like she's got it all figured out right? Negative. Here's the rub -she had an unconventional and unstable upbringing, to say the least, which contributes to her insecurities and eccentricities. So when "Mr. Right", straight out of the glitzy and glamorous celeb world comes along, Allegra can't seem to allow herself to believe that the relationship is the real deal.

Setting- northeastern coast of Australia. Described so enticingly, it made me go and Google Earth the region. Now on my dream list of places to visit ala my bucket list.

Writing style- just what you would want and expect for this genre. Wonderfully easy to get through, yet cohesive. Doesn't wander unnecessarily or have so many characters and subplots you get overwhelmed or disinterested. Also, Allegra's narration flows quite nicely.

The critique....
My only complaint was that it left me wanting more of the beautiful northern beaches of Australia, as well as to learn more about all the other characters, especially Teddy, and Ally's mom aka Moonbeam. Although it's a light/fun read, it was easy to become engrossed and root Allegra on through her journey, so I was a bit bummed at the end. Crossing my fingers that Allegra's story continues! (hint hint Ms. McDonell)
