Welcome to Sugarbeat’s Books – The Home of the Romance Novel!
Today is the day to share my thoughts about the latest book I received from Sourcebooks to read and review. Believe it or Not is the second book that I’ve read by Tawna Fenske. It, like Making Waves, is laugh out loud funny! I hope you enjoy my thoughts on this book!
Believe it or Not by Tawna Fenske
Release: March 2012
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca
Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher to read and review
Do you believe in…..Accounting?
Numbers never lie, so Violet McGinn found safe haven in the most boring profession she could find. Until her renowned psychic mother lands in the hospital and Violet has to run her business. Now you can have your taxes filed and your aura read, in one convenient location.
Do you believe in….Magic?
Drew Watson is the jaded owner of the local hot spot next door, and doesn’t need a single thing except a good crowd to dance to what he’s spinning on Saturday.
Do you believe in….Love?
The only thing Violet and Drew seem to have in common is that neither believes in that psychic hoo-hah. Except Drew seems to play exactly the right song at exactly the right time. And the way they can’t seem to resist each other just can’t be a coincidence…..
This book is laugh out loud funny! Violet McGinn is the only child of a well know psychic. She has never really believed that her mother has any psychic ability, and at her first opportunity she moved to the far side of the US to get away from her mother and her wacky friends. Her mother has now fallen and requires not only surgery, but a lengthy convalescence, so she returns home to take care of her mother and her mother’s psychic business until her mother can get back on her feet. The sticky part is that she needs to step into her mother’s shoes, so to speak, and run the business. Her mother has always insisted that she has psychic power, but Violet is wondering how she will continue to fool some of her mother’s long term clients. To add to the equation, the yummy man who is running the bar next door always seems to be popping up. He and his music seem to be playing a role in the accuracy of her psychic readings.
Drew, one of the owners of the bar next door to Violet’s mom’s business is divorced and a bit of a player. He seems to go out with any girl who hands him her phone number, but is he or is he not gay – his bar features male strippers.
As I started with – this book is laugh out loud funny. I have read an other book of Tawna Fenske a few months ago, and she has the ability to create absolutely hysterical situations to put her characters in. Not only that, but her characters are quirky. Violet’s mother is a tree-hugging, throw back from the 60s hippy who thinks she is psychic. Her friends are equally off-beat and are intent on trying some more holistic healing methods on her, to the puzzlement of the doctor involved in her treatment. They want to try everything from chanting to aromatherapy, even if it sets the curtains on fire.
Pick up a copy of this book if you need a good laugh with a wonderfully endearing HEA. Tawna Fenske continues to entertain her readers with this book, and I look forward to anything else she writes in the future.
