Jeep Tour by Gail Ward Olmsted was an excellent book. I did review another book by this author, and you can click here to check out that review if you missed it. I enjoyed this book right from the start. This author’s style of writing made me fall in love with the book after only reading a few pages which most authors aren’t able to do. I wasn’t a huge fan of the setting of this book but because I liked the characters I was able to get still into this book. I have read tons of chick lit books lately and out of all that I have read recently, this author has written two of my favorites. I liked both Rick and Jackie right from the start of this book. They both seemed like they could exist in the world which I always love. I can’t get into books when I don’t think that the characters could exist in the world. Once again I enjoyed this author writing, and I can’t wait to read more books by her in the future. Like I said in the last review if you love chick lit I would recommend both of her books to you.

About The Book

Jackie Sullivan was drawn to the red rocks of Sedona, Arizona after a failed marriage and an out-of-the-blue job loss. But did she move cross country to chase a dream or a dreamy tour guide? She had it all – the husband, the house, the job…but that’s in the past. A chance encounter with Rick, a handsome tour guide, gets her dreaming of a new life in Sedona. Jackie’s efforts to re-invent herself in the tight-knit desert community are, well … complicated. Sedona is terrific, but as the locals note, ‘it’s not for everyone.’ Does Rick want a relationship or just a friend with benefits? And in the case of her ex-husband, absence definitely makes the heart grow fonder! Is it her imagination, or is Rob more amazing than ever? With her 40th birthday looming, Jackie challenges herself to navigate a new path fueled by an unflagging sense of humor and lots of caffeine. Jackie has already had her happy; now she wants her ever after!

Guessing At Normal by Gail Ward Olmsted

Book Review Graphic

FTC: I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for this review.  I received no other compensation and the opinions expressed in this review at my own.

Guessing At Normal by Gail Ward Olmsted was an excellent book.  This author found me through Goodreads, and I am so glad that she did.  I will be reviewing another book by her next Wednesday, and because I loved this book as much as I did, I can’t wait to read that book and see how I like it.  I loved this book because I loved how the characters seemed like they are real people because that makes me get into the book even more. I was sad when this book ended because I loved the characters in this book. I also was a huge of how this story was told and how the author was able to make me feel like I was there with the characters. If you are looking for a good chick lit book to read, I would recommend this one to you. Also, keep your eyes open next week because I will be reviewing another book by this author

About The Book

Jill Griffin has mastered the art of being invisible, so when she falls in love with sexy rocker James Sheridan, at first she is content to live in his larger than life shadow. Building a ‘normal’ life together under the glare of the media is challenging and further complicated by constant touring, James’ partying and the mixed signals she gets from James’ twin brother Alex.

When her poems and journal ramblings become the songs on James’ best-selling album, Jill has to step out of her comfort zone and figure out how to live her life in a spotlight all her own. With no road map to follow, she struggles to navigate her way in her search for happiness. As her professional success threatens her relationship with James, Jill questions whether she can make a living writing love songs without the love of her life.
