"Super fun read! Full of vibrant characters that I want to hang out with. And in some cases, make out with. Hubba hubba. I can't wait for part two - not just to see the development of other likeable characters from this book, but also to catch glimpses of my now favorite plumber in the future and learn if she indeed made the right choice!!" Minh N., July 25, 2015, TaylorRushFiction.com "Jules romantic adventures in a rehab facility kept me engaged, definitely made me smile, then laugh, and by the end desirous of the next installment. The personalities Taylor Rush creates are quirky but at the same time real enough for you to effortlessly go for the ride. Totally enjoyable." Deb B., October 13, 2015, TaylorRushFiction.com
From the Author
I hope you enjoy Mistakes Were Made: a comedic romance about some of my favorite characters of all time. I wrote this book to explore the dynamics of love, friendship between women (and friendship between women and men), and what happens when adults are stuck in a location together. While the primary plot is Jules' sweet quest for love, I thoroughly enjoyed contemplating the complexity of adult relationships when everyone is stuck together at a location -- the Misty Forests recovery and adult living center.
The book doesn't explicitly state the location or time period, but there are numerous subtle references to Portland, Oregon throughout the story. I liked the idea of pushing everything forward about 30 years to around 2045, which means today's teenagers are the adult thirtysomething protagonists of the story. We still have mobile devices of some sort and computers for work (but we keep them from running our lives a bit better), we operate cars (but do we drive them?), and some of my favorite Portland restaurants are still in existence. Misty Forests doesn't actually exist, but I do have a secret location in Northwest Portland up against the hill picked out.
I quite enjoyed give Jules a career as a greywater plumber -- still a little unusual now, but I like to imagine that there are many more greywater projects in 2045 and many more women working as plumbers.
There are at least three books in this world, with the second book (Best Laid Plans) also available. I so much fell in love with the characters, that I can easily imagine many more. Some of the secondary or minor characters who may need their own books include Jules' best friend Martha and her new good friend Sue at Misty Forests. I could also see books about Jeff who runs the front desk at Misty Forests, his buddy Melody, the facility manager Neal, and the grumpy but sweet gardener. To name just a few.
