My second review on TGIF is on the blog tour of What Goes Around by Rachel Ellyn…..
Alice has been playing the perfect Southern wife for over twenty-five years. So when Bob dumps her for some blonde bimbo twenty years her junior, Alice figures she’s entitled to every dollar she can bleed from him. And, once she’s got the money, she’s entitled to use it on a much-needed vacation to Nanm Paradi, a Caribbean resort that sells itself as her “soul’s paradise”.
She’s never experienced anything as luxurious as Nanm Paradi. The staff know her every desire and cater to her every need before she even knows she needs it. She figures this is how the really rich live and she’s ready to take advantage of all of it–the fabulous drinks, the beautiful views, and the handsome men. And when she discovers that voodoo magic is also on offer… well, Bob hurt her bad. She can take some time away from paradise to exact a little pain. Alice would have been happy to leave things at that.
But when she gets hit where it hurts–her bank account–Alice’s game changes. It’s no longer about post-divorce romance. Now it’s about revenge.
What Goes Around is a little bit thriller, a little bit witchy, a little bit romance, and a whole lot of sass.
Alice is recently divorced after her Husband left her and so is jetting off for a well deserved holiday. She has A LOT of cocktails, enjoys the gorgeous men and finds that she can get her revenge with a little bit of magic……
This was a fab novella that you can completely lose yourself in! The description of the island was fantastic and I just REALLY wanted to be there drinking cocktails with Alice! I absolutely loved going along with her on the revenge ride so that Bob got what he deserved, and LOVE a bit of magic!
This is well written, brilliant and will have you smiling! It’s a perfect, warm and fun read….exactly what we need as our seasons change and the weather gets chillier (in the UK). It will have you imaging you’re there living the holiday with her…..and helping her out!
I thoroughly enjoyed this! Thanks for sharing Rachel!
about the author
Life and loves after the career.
With degrees in Finance and Economics, Rachel found wonderful success in the business world, which took her I.T. and financial process consulting international. However, with her mind focused on business, and with the lack of training and mentoring in her personal life, marriage success eluded her.
After foraging on a path of self-awareness and exploration with a determination to avoid repeating patterns again, she found the key to relationship bliss. Now, combining her passion for writing and storytelling with her skills, knowledge, and drive that led to her business acclaim, Rachel shares her off beat take on the world, and her findings where life, love, divorce, and children are concerned.
Rachel is determined to be a publicist’s nightmare by writing in multiple genres including children’s fiction, flash fiction, romance, and suspense/thriller.
After multiple divorces, she is now happily married and lives in the Kansas City Metropolitan area enjoying the household noise of her soon-to-be empty nest.
