All the above happened, I kid you not, when I was 13 minutes into this book! In other words, the 1% of the book I'd read had me in stitches! Now in case you think this is my normal disposition, it isn't! I kid you not... And in case you think I'm pulling your leg, check out my books and you'll discover funny isn't my forte. Perhaps that's why reading, "...one dazed, wayward turkey that limped into our yard," hit me as laughable to the max!
Whether this novel will prove to be funny throughout, I do not know. What I do know is that this talented wordsmith gave me a word picture that will always make me smile, one I will enjoy sharing with others... and that does indeed, at least to my way of thinking, make reading this work a treat to look forward to!

Suzanne's writing is descriptive and clear, and moves the story along without any unnecessary fluff. The story in itself is a unique idea - a group of women authors bonded by the rejection letters they receive, and the quest to change a publisher's acceptance to another rejection to keep the group together. I can only hope I find a group of friends like them, willing to chain themselves to toilets to help me accomplish my goals.
I already have the second book in this series and can't wait to read it.
I enjoyed reading this book because of how much I can relate to the quirkiness around me. The writers point of view is an average (normal as she sees herself) person who has to tolerate, or better yet endure, those colorful characters around her that make life enjoyable and awkward at the same time. She finds herself included in a road trip to save the integrity of one of these ladies because of her passive nature. I believe that secretly she longs to try and help them be less quirky. But in the journey, because truthfully it's not the destination that counts it's the journey, in the journey she finds that these women not only enjoy who they have become but embrace it on a level that teaches Janet who she is. Loving someone means looking beyond what you see and realizing who they are underneath. Wonderful job, author for an entertaining way that we can all learn to laugh at our own quirks and embrace them with Doris's enthusiasm.
