Say Never - Review & Giveaway

 Review by Marlene Engel

Some people are just born to be parents.  And others … not so much!  For Meg Monroe, she’s used to battling wits with her radio co-host, not with children.  So it’s no surprise that she loves living in New York City’s Upper West side, on the complete opposite end of the country from her family.  You can imagine her shock when she receives a call from her brother asking for help in caring for his kids while his wife recovers from an accident.  Reluctantly, she agrees.  After all, how hard can it be watching after little humans?

Things go from bad to worse as Meg embarks on her journey, starting with the airline losing her luggage.  But that’s the least of her worries.  As she comes face to face with her niece who makes no qualms of expressing her dislike for Meg, to almost burning down her brother’s house on the first day she arrives, Meg quickly realizes that this is going to be harder than she anticipated.

I loved this book!  It went from funny to funnier and had me laughing out loud at the turn of each page!  From all of Meg’s mishaps, including losing her nephew at Bloomingdale’s, your stomach will hurt from laughing so much by the time you finish this book.  I can’t say enough good things about this book.  But, don’t take my word for it.  Grab a copy and find out for yourself!

Janis Thomas is a graduate of UCLA who was actually born in the University’s Medical Center.

While there, she performed in several plays, including the Off-Broadway production of Your Children, was cast in the National Tour of Forbidden Broadway, and played out in some of the hottest clubs in the city with her sister and their band she said. While bartending on the upper west side she met her now-husband. She made him a margarita and they’ve been together ever since. Janis has written over fifty songs and two children’s books (with her dad). When she is not writing or fulfilling her PTA duties, she likes to channel her inner Ace of Cakes to create fun and fabulous desserts.
