We’re excited to feature our friend and author, Kathleen Kole’s two romantic comedy novels, HOME IS WHERE THE HEARTBURN IS … and TEAPOTS AND TEQUILA SHOTS… Plus a sneak peak at the cover of her upcoming novel, ROMANCE and OTHER NONSENSE and of course, giveaways!
Have you ever had, “one of those days”? Of course you have. Well, in HOME WHERE THE HEARTBURN IS … Paula Dempsey can totally relate except for the small detail that she’s having one of those months. The prospect of buying their first house has both Paula and hubby, Declan excited. Her plans are to turn their house into a home, including filling it with light, lots of laughter and little ones – that is if they can ever get inside.
What began as a project to update the awful kitchen with something fabulous and user-friendly is behind schedule – way, way behind schedule. And because that’s behind, the Dempsey’s plan to move into the house has turned into a major headache and been pushed back – way, way back.
That wouldn’t be a big deal except for the fact, they’ve given up the lease to their apartment and they have absolutely nowhere to live. Well, they have one option – moving in with Paula’s parents and into the bedroom she grew up in. That’s the absolute last place Paula and Declan want to spend any amount of time, beyond a few hours.
Talk about opposites. Paula is a neat freak, but her mom thrives living in a mess and all Paula can remember is playing clean-up crew growing up. Not only that, her younger sister still lives at home, and her father is pleasantly drifting along. All of that is fine from a distance, but Paula can’t imagine moving back into that disaster with her hubby and her marriage surviving. Will they be able to form a united front until they can move into their new home. Paula and Declan may just want to forget about shacking up with her parents, pitch a tent, hunker down and wait for the all clear.
If sixty is the new fifty and fifty the new forty, it explains why Ginny Hughes’ life has gone from predictable to freewheeling. In TEAPOTS AND TEQUILA SHOTS, instead of just playing it safe with gardening and grandchildren, she’s daring to slip on her LBD, sling-backs and discover what life still has to offer. In other words, “sowing her oats.” Ginny’s ready to move out of her comfort zone – way out! “Honey, I’m older, but not dead.”
Grab a teacup, or a shot glass, fill it up with whatever strikes your fancy, and join Ginny as she pushes past the notions of what it means to be a woman “of a certain age.”
Kathleen’s novels are all about girls having fun and finding the humor in the everyday! Once you start reading you can’t resist becoming BFFs with her heroines.
