TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW – MOWED OVER by CHRISTINA CORYELL

 

 

When artist Willow Sharpe throws herself in front of the riding lawnmower to save her fairy world from being mowed over, the landscaper thinks she’s more than a little loopy.

 

Clint-doesn’t-talk-much-Kirkland is fascinated by the pixie artist woman. And yet he is drawn to her.

 

But if opposites attract, can they find common ground and let their hearts do the talking?

 

 

This is my first read by Ms. Coryell and I’m sold. The story zings with fun and the snappy dialogue bounced. As an artist, I totally relate to Willow’s reaction to her endangered fairy scape—and her incessant chatter… And with her heart as love begins to stir. I enjoyed as Willow transferred the things of her life to her fairy character—and when she created a Clint character to go in her storyline.

Ms. Coryell has written a clever story within a story, life imitating life imitating life, love on the page… on the page. Sweet and silly and fair-ily delightful.

 

I received a free copy of this book, but was under no obligation to read the book or to post a review. I offer my review of my own free will. The opinions expressed in my review are my honest thoughts and reaction to this book.

 

 

 

USA Today bestselling author Christina Coryell was born and raised in southwest Missouri, where she lives with her husband and children. She had plenty of people tell her that her degree in English with an emphasis on Creative Writing would be useless. They were probably right. Added to her dual major in History, she became the least likely candidate for nearly every career on the planet, save being a writer. That suits her just fine.

Christina has written from the back hatch of an SUV, in a lawn chair while at soccer practice, in the front seat of her car, with kids climbing on her, and often with extremely loud noise in the background. At least half of her books have been written during baseball games.

She believes great fiction mirrors life, and great life contains a little humor, so it’s difficult not to sprinkle a little funny business throughout her work. Oh…and character is everything.
She loves hearing from readers. You can find all the ways to connect with her at www.christinacoryell.com

A (nearly) Normal Nanny by Krista Phillips
Normal is highly overrated…

That’s When I Knew by award-winning author Laurie Tomlinson
