Hot Flash Book Tour by Kathy Carmichael


hot flash What's the recipe for a happy marriage?

That's what chef Jill Morgan Storm wants to know, and according to responses to the "Marriage Satisfaction Surveys" she and her closest friends cooked up, the answer is to marry a traveling salesman who is rarely home.

And Jill certainly deserves some happiness, after everything she's been going through. Her teen-aged son, who only speaks to her in French, needs college tuition. Her crazy mother is determined to find her a man—and only brings her unsuitable ones. A pesky schoolteacher keeps annoyingly trying to fix her life. Her sous chef job is in jeopardy, and, most aggravating of all, her ex-boyfriend has absconded with her favorite skillet.

What's a single mom to do?

Faced with the answers to her surveys, she sets off to find the traveling salesman who can share her dreams. Along the way, can she find herself and a man who will claim her heart?


Review
Hot Flash by Kathy Carmichael is a fun novel about a divorced mom turning 40 and what life can bring.  Jill has some hilarious moments.  When she breaks into her ex's home searching for her skillet - that  is so real to me. I could see myself doing that - heck the skillet was hers.  I also thought the date that cost her more money  than it was worth is classic. I can so remember dates like that.

In all seriousness it is a well written story about the hardships of being a single Mom growing older.  Her ups and downs - her drive to find out what makes a successful marriage - her rejection - her fears and her happiness.

Kathy Carmichael did an excellent job of expressing feeling and emotions. At the end of the book I thought gosh Jill and I could definitely be friends. The book is a easy read - perfect for picking up reading then putting down. I found it very easy to jump right back into the plot. Kathy's writing made me what to know more...Will the date work?  Who is this teacher? Will he be Mr. Right?
