About the Book:
Loaded with humor, action, intrigue and romance, My Mother the Man-Eater is the exciting story of a woman whose search for meaning in life finds an unexpected outlet.
Joleen Allen is on the hunt for a man. Unfortunately, every time the mother of five meets one, he falls for one of her daughters instead! At forty-four, Joleen has lived a tough life. She became a mother at 16, and her five daughters are now grown. Her ex-husband, Harold, is out of prison and back in the picture, looking for revenge. He’ll stop at nothing – even murder – to ruin Joleen’s reputation as well as her relationship with their daughters.
My Mother the Man-Eater makes for some truly tempting and redemptive reading.
Tracy Krauss teaches high school art, drama and English. Originally from a small town in Saskatchewan, she received her bachelor’s degree in Saskatoon. She currently lives in Tumbler Ridge, British Columbia, and is working on her next novel.
As I said above, her talent is awesome and the plot is interesting. The message at the end, of God’s love shining through even the most craziest of families, and Him loving us for US just as we (and letting us know that it’s OK to be a bit imperfect) are is awesome. Tack on the lesson of family and forgiveness, and this is one book that you won’t want to miss.
So, I do recommend this book. I know I said that the dialog was lacking because of the way it ran on and on for me, but that didn’t stop me from pushing forth and finishing this novel. I am, in the end, glad that this 4 star novel did shine and keep me hooked. Please grab a copy for yourselves today and see this talented author’s work!
