#BlogTour: Blind Dates, Big Love & Six Tinder Weeks by Bena Roberts @benaroberts @rararesources

Blind Dates, Big Love & Six Tinder Weeks is available now. My thanks to the author for the review copy and Rachel of Rachel's Random Resources for inviting me on to the blog tour.

Helen's children leave home at eighteen. She sleepwalked through her marriage of twenty years for their sake. But when they go, she leaves her husband. Her house is a mess, as is her image and Helen breaks down. Through her pain, she draws blood and allows the universe to guide her and her decisions.
The unexpected happens, scientist Helen gets thrown into a new life of hedonism, dating, and self-discovery. A charming lawyer steals her heart, but is Helen ready for the fast lane? Will the local village firefighter provide the romance of her dreams? Or the military spy CJ, who is convinced that Helen is part of a Romanian smuggling gang.
With the help of her sister Portia, Helen starts to transform her life. The universe guides her to finding something in herself.
Debut author Bena Robert's provides a unique perspective in this witty black comedy. Dark humor meets chick lit with a robust and realistic voice.

My Thoughts:

Blind Dates, Big Love & Six Tinder Weeks is a change from my usual type of read. I absolutely loved this funny quirky romance that had me giggling throughout. 

This book tells the story of Helen, in her forties and newly single, looking to transform herself and her life. The book follows a time line of six weeks, and what Helen gets up to during that time and the men she meets. 

There is a lot to like about this book but predominately for me was the host of entertaining and unique characters. The storyline is enjoyable and realistic and could be about any of us. 

I found it refreshing that the story centred on someone in their forties dating, it goes to prove that not all on line dating is done by young people. 

The story flows well and was engaging enough to keep me entertained throughout. It was so funny I had finished reading it before I knew it. 

A refreshing look at the dating scene and all of its consequences, all packaged up in a hugely comical and uplifting read. 

I really enjoyed this one.
