I started my book review blog in 2009 and I have read so many outstanding books that I wanted to share them again with my followers on #SegueSaturday. I first posted this review in March 2011. I recall it was a fast read that had me laughing and nodding my head throughout. I hear it is a popular read among book clubs around the world, and I am excited there is a book 2 entitled Discovering Arugula.
This book is for those women who fantasize about sexual adventures, and who enjoy “coming of age” books where the character finally “gets it”. Not to mention you will laugh out loud at times.
Being the product of a dysfunctional family Liz Gardner is a free spirit who goes through men like butter and doesn’t look back. She knows what she wants and she takes it no matter the consequences. This book is her guide through her acting career, her wild and wacky relationships and finally a fitting ending. To say it in Liz’s words, “I drove through my life without a safety belt, miraculously surviving my reckless choices”.
This is a fast-paced, hilarious first novel by Elizabeth Allen which I hope you will enjoy as much as I did.
Thank you to Elizabeth Allen for giving me the opportunity to review her novel with no expectation of a positive review.
