The Marian Kind Now On Sale!

And the first review is out, too! Cocktail Reviews gave The Marian Kind 5 champagne flutes!!!

Author: Babe King
Publisher: Freya’s Bower


What a nutso read! Marian, the daughter of a funeral director, makes the dead pretty. If anyone knows how to use make-up, she does! While having a conversation with her boyfriend, Rob, she gets the idea in her head that he wants to break up with her, that he is hiding something. It doesn’t help that Rob has been spending time with a woman named Jennifer Perrin. Marian’s thoughts run wild. However, she soon finds out that he has been hiding a little more than she bargained for…

Set yourself up for a fun ride! Marian aids Rob in unravelling a mystery, one that takes them to the office of the local Sheriff. Here, they meet an annoying dog and Granny, a.k.a Celia Tuck. Dog and Granny join Marian and Rob on their quest to solve a crime, with hilarious results. A fake boob implant brings hilarity to the tale, along with excellent one-liners that made me laugh out loud.

A breath of fresh air, The Marian Kind is a must read for all romantic comedy readers.

Favourite lines:

He took a scone and stared like it was Snow White’s apple. Personally, I never saw Snow White’s problem. I mean, the girl escaped a ton of housework for those messy dwarves, had a lovely long nap surrounded by flowers, then got woken by a handsome prince and lived happily ever after in a palace. Hello? I should be so lucky.

Either the fairies in her top paddock were contagious or the music was for real.—top paddock! Hilarious!

None so shabby, eh?

Thanks, Lucinda. Gotta admit, I held my breath. The Marian Kind is pretty "out there" humor, so I wasn't sure how they'd react. :-)
