Do you enjoy books that make you laugh out loud?
I sent my latest book this morning to my publisher, Prism Book Group. This little dyslexic angel, Sarah, experiences several misadventures in the new work entitled: Sarah and the Widow’s Mate. I begin a new story of Sarah disasters in July, and I’m looking forward to this little spirit bringing me laughter as I sit at the computer.
Sarah: A Mission of Love was her first venture to Earth. Oh my! The things she did. In Angel class 101, she received computer instruction, but operating those thingies in the upper realm didn’t prepare her for the real thing. Poor Sarah—she simply can’t understand technology. Klutzy? The word doesn’t describe her. She falls off roofs and loves high heels but tumbles off them too. Did I mention her sense of direction? I didn’t? Well, that’s because she has none.
In Sarah: Laney’s Angel, I reveal her catastrophes as she attempts to unite a stubborn couple. The Warrior Angel, Tomas helps her somewhat, but there’s only so much he can do. The Lieutenant assigned to her in the upper realm finds himself often in prayer because of her antics. Sarah means well, her intentions are honorable, but she can’t help it. She’s merely an accident on her way to a mortal’s life.
In Sarah, a Widow’s Mate, Sarah must help a widow discover which man out of two is interested in her and not her vast wealth. Sarah goes to a wedding disguised as a female human. Can you believe it? The poor thing falls down in the aisle with a sanctuary full of people gazing at her. Oh! While there, she inadvertently starts a church rumor. Will she be called up to Cloud Five for a reprimand? Angels aren’t supposed to create gossip.
Books that make me laugh as I read them make me happy. One of the recent releases from Prism Book Group, Daddy Wanted, by Penelope Marzec promises to do just that. In this book, Grace wakes up one morning to discover she has lost her job and her roommate is pregnant. Determined to solve both problems, she searches for jobs online and sets up an ad to find a daddy for the child. Russell, an IT repairman, needs a date for a wedding, but the woman on his arm must be the Perfect Woman. According to his list of specifications, Grace fits the bill—until he finds a pregnancy test kit box in the garbage. Deciding she’s only a little bit pregnant, he offers her a business deal. Doesn’t that sound funny? I’m reading it next.
I enjoy Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series for that humor reason. I also favor the Miss Julia series authored by Ann B. Ross.
Daily events bring us enough trauma and challenges. It’s better to escape with a good book and laugh out loud.
