Colouring Outside the Lines by Amanda Paull #BookReview #CherryDene3 #BlogTour #IndieAuthor #Rachel’sRandomResources #4.5*

Meet Katie: she’s about to marry the most wonderful man in the world. The planning is done, the checklist is checked. The future is set.

Having spent her twenties and thirties enjoying life with good friends, and building a career she loves, it’s taken Katie until her forties to contemplate settling down. And she couldn’t be more delighted she waited.

So, why is her perfect groom standing gawping at her, wearing mismatched socks and sweating buckets? This can’t bode well.

With her special day in tatters, Katie has a decision to make. Does she snatch back the reigns of her old life, and tighten her grip even more? Or should she take a chance on change? Will she find the key to happiness at a Pilates class in a smelly old hall?

Or is the curve ball heading her way too huge to handle?

Funny & Incredibly Tender!

An original, funny and touching read!

Katie is about to get married; in her forties and on a solid financial footing she is all ready for the big day, dressed in her finery when her fiance turns up not exactly dressed to match and dithering about commitment. With her life in tatters, Katie finds herself full of doubts about where her life is heading now . . .

There is such a lot going on in this book! I empathised with Katie’s organisational skills and her need to be on top of everything as I can be a bit (just a bit!) of a control freak myself. Her mother, however, could be the title character in any sitcom with her father playing the straight man; I laughed myself silly over some of the situations these two got themselves into but there is a really deeper, touching part of the story about Katie finding herself after all the ups and downs she has been through. All beautifully written by Amanda Paull making it a tender, enjoyable read which I’m happy to recommend and give 4.5*.

My thanks to the publisher for my copy and to Rachel Gilbey for my spot on this tour; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
