88 Guys for Coffee by Diane Solomon
Should I laugh? Should I cry? Laugh until I cry? Diane Solomon’s 88 GUYS FOR COFFEE is proof that there IS light at the end of the tunnel of love and it is NOT an oncoming train! Grab a cup of coffee, wear your most comfy clothes and hang out the DO NOT DISTURB sign because this is a tale of the heart and soul of online dating for a woman who refused to believe that every prince is a frog in disguise.
This is Laura’s story, or rather her five year saga of looking for “Mr. Right for Me” after the coward she once thought of as her husband jumped ship like a thief in the night, stealing her self-respect, dignity, self-confidence and probably her favorite pan, (okay I just added the pan bit). This is the good, the bad and short and bald of false dating advertising, bait and switch pictures and the ones that got away, thank goodness!
Never tried online dating? Thinking about maybe giving it a go? Know someone, male or female who is thinking of looking for love or at least a decent person through the maze that is cyberspace? Read Diane Solomon’s 88 GUYS FOR COFFEE first and feel, witness and learn, Grasshopper, because it may be a jungle out there, but our heroine, Laura has become a warrior in a world that can be terrifying and a guide to learning to love yourself first and the rest will fall in place when it is meant to.
Humorous, heartbreaking, eye-opening and filled with some truly wickedly funny scenes as lived and chronicled by Laura’s firsthand experience, Diane Solomon is sharing more than some wit and wisdom, she is sharing the kaleidoscope that is life, warts and all. It’s okay to feel horrified, mystified and justified for scoffing at online dating, just as it’s okay to maybe give it a try, then another try and maybe even another. It took our Laura 88 attempts, five years and gallons of coffee, gas and frog kisses, not to mention hours of her life she will never get back, but in the end, she found herself as much as she found her prince! Read it, laugh with it, roll with it, this is a sparkling gem for sure!
I received this ARC edition from Diane Solomon in exchange for my honest review.
