"An utterly charming romantic comedy that pulled me in right from the start. ...funny, imperfect characters, love lost and found, sexual attraction, and an old merry-go-round. Told with humor and honesty, this novel is an entertaining and satisfying read. I highly recommend it!" ~ Karen McQuestion, author of A Scattered Life

By the time I finished this book I felt I truly knew the characters, especially Norma and Lew, and that they had become a part of my life as old, dear friends. Another great book I didn't want to end.
Definitely a 5 Star story.
I would be interested in reading more from Donna Fasano.
*I received my copy from NetGalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
Thirty-eight-year-old lawyer Lauren Flynn harbours a lot of resentment toward her soon to be ex-husband, Greg. All she wants from him is his signature on the divorce papers. Or at least that's what she tells herself.
While I didn't feel that this was a comedy, it was one of the best romances I've read in a long time. Engaging story with strong, real people. Lots of sexual tension but no gratuitous sex scenes. Balanced pacing with no flat spots.
I didn't warm to Lauren straight away, but the more I got to know her, the more she grew on me. In the beginning, she came across as quite hard and bitter, but I soon discovered that was only a veneer and brittle at that.
The Merry-Go-Round is a delightful story, humorous and engaging. One of those books to curl up with either on the beach or snuggled up on a cold night. The characters capture your interest and entertain you.
The formatting was good and I only picked up a couple of small typos, nothing that detracted from my enjoyment of this book.
