Review ~ DREAMS, INTERRUPTED by Holly Gilliatt


Maybe having dreams and getting what you wish for is all a load of crap.

It took Karen years to let the walls she’d built up finally start to crumble down. Never one to hope and dream, now she remembered why: it was just setting herself up for disappointment. Although she hadn’t considered herself mother material, after marrying the one man in her life who had never let her down, she actually started to think having a baby was a splendid idea…if only she could get pregnant.

One of her best friends, Jayne, was the poster child for dreams fulfilled with the wonderful family she’d always imagined. Perennially cheerful, Jayne believed in happily-ever-afters, looked for rainbows and Karen figured she could probably conjure a butterfly on demand. But while Jayne plastered a smile on her face, she was drowning in a sea of diapers and domesticity.

Claudia, with support from her friends, had managed the role of single mother after her divorce with her usual grace. Scarred from the breakup she never saw coming, she submersed herself in raising her daughter and was content to stay away from men and the potential for another broken heart. Or was she…?

Dreams, Interrupted is a story of three best friends that ride the often bumpy road of their dreams together—potholes and all.


REVIEW

If you liked ‘Til St. Patrick's Day, you'll love Dreams, Interrupted.  This sequel really takes these best friends' lives to the next level.  Karen is the pessimist and downer. This story takes you through her emotional roller coaster of trying to get pregnant.  You'll enjoy the ups and downs her ride takes you on.  She's a mess that comes to terms with her bummer personality and draws strength from her husband and friends.  

Claudia is the newly single mom who is, surprisingly, on very good terms with her ex-husband.  She's the modern day Martha Stewart and when her ex wants to try a relationship with her again…well, she seriously considers it.  You'll have to read this book to find out her ultimate decision.

Jayne has two very rambunctious children, living on a shoestring with her beloved husband who she feels doesn't really pull his own weight.  She's stressed out with work, the kids, money, and just life in general when a very unexpected surprise happens.  It's a doozy and again, you'll have to read this book to find out as I'm not giving any of the details away!

This is a must read and you won't want to put it down until it's finished.

5 stars out of 5.  If the rating system were higher, I'd give it even more stars!
