Dispatches from the Dating Zone - Review & Giveaway

Review by Marlene Engel

Let’s face it, the dating scene leaves much to be desired.  But when you’re a thirty something, divorced mom with a little extra padding, desperate times call for desperate measures.  That’s why Fleur Summers decides to turn to her colorful family and friends for help.  Agreeing to be set up on blind dates, Fleur meets an array of interesting men.  From a human garbage disposal to a Danny DeVito clone, Fleur’s encounters give the term “date from hell” a new meaning.  But she’s determined to give this unconventional way of meeting a man a fair shot. 

Join Fleur on a hilarious adventure to (hopefully) meet Mr. Right.  No matter if you are happily married or looking for your own Mr. Right, you will enjoy this laugh out loud novel.  Full of zany characters and crazy shenanigans, Dispatches from the Dating Zone is a must read.

About the Author:
Just like most writers, writing has been my passion for as long as I can remember. From short stories as a child to songs performed in school plays. One way or another I’ve always written.

However, my tale is not one of an overnight success but rather one of a slow burner! It wasn’t until I was a 25 years old and in the very early stages of pregnancy that I decided I might be good enough at writing to finally give into the little voice in my head, the one that had been telling me for years to put the book that I’d been mentally drafting, down on paper. I was a third of the way through when, unfortunately, life decided it had other ideas. Very much out of the blue and barely a few weeks after giving birth, I found myself facing the road ahead as a single mum and in the process of getting divorced. Needless to say, I didn’t write again for years.

Thankfully, after turning my life around and spurred on by my family and young son, I finally put pen to paper again and ‘Dispatches from the Dating Zone’ was born.

I’d love to say that when I’m not writing, I’m living the glamorous and over-the-top life of a W.A.G here in Cheshire…but in reality I’m pretty much your average 36 year old, one with too many wobbly bits and a penchant for white wine and chocolate.
