Hot Mess Blog Tour
by: Anne Conley
Let me just start off and say that this book is amazeballs. That is simply the best way to put it. When I first started on this book, I expected another man moves in near woman and their love story develops. I figured it would be same ole, same ole since most books these days seem to be kind of cliche'.
What I did not expect to find was a deeply emotional, learning journey as two people overcome fears and rejection to find something deeper. I don't know how else to put it. This book deals with a disease. I learned so much from this novel and I will never, ever look at that disease the same. I am sorry to admit that I was one who didn't understand it. Anne does such an amazing job getting the reader to become completely immersed. I fell in love with Rachel from the start. I love her honesty and bravery. Sam was such a sweetheart and I am so proud of his actions, although it took a while for him to get it right. I loved the blog posts and excerpts from the Fireman's handbook at the beginning of the chapters. I totally looked forward to those.
Ladies, don't pass this one up. Make sure you have tissues handy because if this one doesn't push tears out, then you might be emotionally broken. Just sayin'.
This is an emotional, beautiful, lovely novel and I do believe I am now officially an Anne Conley fan!! Thanks so much for the ARC and letting me be a part of your blog tour!
