REVIEW: Tales From A Broad by Jeannine Henvey
Author: Jeannine Henvey
Publisher: Melange Books, LLC
Publication Date: June, 2014
Description: If you enjoy new twists on old classics, then Tales From A Broad is a comedic adventure of one woman’s quest to find herself, but the spotlight focuses on her older chaperone, instead.
Forty-two and feeling not-so-fabulous, Lucy Banks allows her older sister to talk her into accompanying her twenty-four-year-old niece on a trip around Europe. In the past year she has lost her fiancé, her job and her fertility. Embracing her role as spinster aunt seems to be Lucy’s only option, until she embarks on a romantic adventure through London, Amsterdam, Munich, Paris and Florence. Will a room with a view and a handsome stranger be enough to open her heart and mind to new experiences?
Tales From A Broad promises to draw readers into a light-hearted tale of emotional development, self-discovery and love.
My Thoughts: Tales From A Broad by new to me author Jeannine Henvey is a wonderful story about a woman who cures her broken heart by going on a European adventure with her niece, Tess. After Lucy Banks has lost her job, her life takes a downward spiral when her fiancé dumps her after she finds out she is infertile.
I really enjoyed this fun and uplifting story as Lucy comes to terms with her heartbreak and learning to open herself to the possibility of love again. I really liked Lucy and Tess. Their witty dialogue and banter made their relationship one of friendship as well as family. The introduction of brothers Mark and Simon made the story even more entertaining and interesting. The author does a fantastic job of drawing the reader into the locales Lucy visits on her trip that I got a real sense of what Lucy was experiencing as if I was there with her.
My Final Verdict: Overall, this was a fun story with characters that the reader can easily relate to and care about. I highly recommend this story to readers who want to get so completely immersed in a story, they easily forget it’s a work of fiction instead of a real adventure.
