Book Review: Getting to Mr. Right by Carol Balawyder

getting to mr right cover

I am so excited for my blog pal: Carol Balawyder who has now published her third book:

Getting to Mr. Right.ย 

Congrats Carol and well done! ๐Ÿ™‚

And as I said in my 5 star review over at Amazon,ย Getting to Mr. Right is definitely RIGHT ON!

Here’s my review from Amazon:

Getting to Mr. Right is Definitely RIGHT ON!!!ย 

I had previously read: Missi’s Dating Adventures by Carol Balawyder and thoroughly enjoyed it. She did not disappoint with her newest book: Getting to Mr. Right.

This is another great story from start to finish, albeit with a more serious tone overall this time. Her writing style has also evolved and matured providing a story that flows quite seamlessly throughout.

The characters in this book are well developed, the plot has just enough twists and turns to keep things interesting and the ending is satisfying and spot on.

If you have ever struggled to find Mr.Right, have dipped into the sometimes perilous waters of online and particularly over 40 dating, this is a must read.

Highly recommended!


If you are looking for a fun, entertaining and at times, enlightening book to curl up with this weekend, you might want to check this one out. I’m sure glad I did. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Happy Weekend and Reading.ย 

PS: Another book/eBook you might enjoy and that will be available as a free Kindle download for today and Saturday is:

Laughing AT the Grim Reaper! Gems of Wisdom for Aging Well by…. ME! ๐Ÿ˜‰

You can read all the details about the free promo here.ย

New Updated Download Available for: Laughing AT the Grim Reaper!


ย  If you have a copy of my latest ebook:

Laughing AT the Grim Reaper! Gems of Wisdom for Aging Well,

there is now a new updated download available.

I changed the cover color (what do you think?) and did a few minor tweaks with the content too.

If you phone in to Amazon customer service (see the Help page at Amazon and choose: manage my content) they will provide a free updated download of the book. ย It’s very quick and easy.

Hope you are all having a lovely summer so far.

It’s been so nice here in BC, warm with just a gentle breeze every day. Hard to stay inside much. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Happy Reading and Week!
