What a delight this was! Sure, it sounded funny but I didn’t expect much. And I often use the term laugh out loud without actually laughing out loud. More like a light chuckle or smiles while reading. You guys, I actually laughed out loud. Enough to cause my husband to ask what I was reading.
The characters come to life in Summer Heacock’s debut. The main focus is on Kat, a baker who is going through a bit of a dry spell in the, ahem, sex department. She’s been with her boyfriend for years but has fallen into a rut when her lady bits start causing her trouble. She starts feeling guilty and tells her boyfriend he can go look for sex elsewhere while she tries therapy on her own.
As I was reading, I kept imagining what a great romantic comedy this would make on the big screen. The dialogue is so witty that it wouldn’t take much to start the screenplay. (Dear Hollywood, I’m interested in playing Shannon, okay?). When you add in Kat’s three coworkers to the mix of advice, gossip, and all things vaginas, hilarity ensues.
I raced through this book in a day. The chapters are short and sweet and the story flies. Definitely pick this up if you’re looking for a quick pick-me-up or beach read. It was such a refreshing break from watching the news and those heavy, emotional books.
My thanks to TLC Book Tours and the publisher for a copy of the novel in exchange for an honest review.

About the author:
Summer Heacock is an author of contemporary women’s fiction, and prances through life like a Disney cartoon that says the “F” word a lot. She lives in a teeny Indiana town where she’s a stay-at-home-mom to two scampy tots, wife to an amazingly understanding husband, herder of a rescue critter menagerie, and collector of life-size celebrity cardboard cutouts. When not writing or hoarding jellybeans, she’s a member of the Midwest Writers planning committee, and a cohost of PubTalkTV. She can be found at www.Fizzygrrl.com, and on Twitter as @Fizzygrrl. Her follow-up novel, FINDER’S FEE, is due July 2018, from MIRA/Harlequin.
