DON’T STOP ME NOW by Colleen Coleman
A hilarious feel good read about making lemonade when life gives you lemons, and finding the silver lining in every cloud.
Poppy Bloom planned to finish her PhD and walk straight into a job at her university. But here she is, unemployed, unceremoniously dumped by her boyfriend, and living back at her mum’s in her vampire-themed childhood bedroom.
Not exactly what she was hoping for.
But when Poppy sets her mind to something, nothing can stand in her way. She scores herself an internship at the hottest radio station in town, joins a netball team, and renews her friendship with her oldest friend Leanne. Spending time with Leanne’s gorgeous twin Tom is just a bonus…
But life has a way of tripping you up when you least expect it, and Poppy soon has to decide where her priorities lie… With new friends, a new career and a new romance, can Poppy keep everyone happy, or is everything about to tumble down around her?
A laugh-out-loud story about friendship, second chances, and new love, perfect for fans of Lindsey Kelk, Marian Keyes and Jane Costello.
HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
What a terrific book. Don’t think for one minute that this is simply a rom com because oh my this is so much more. Life isn’t always fair, well to be honest it is the people in your life that complicate it really. That is the element that you just can not control no matter how much you want something or even deserve it.
Poppy Bloom had mapped her life out, she excelled at University achieving the highest score ever, so the employment position on offer there should have been hers, but when the person you have knocked off poll position is in charge then Poppy is the last person Dr. Burley wanted to be on the team. Poppy had kept her side of the bargain, she had worked hard and was even awarded the year’s doctoral valedictorian of the psychology faculty of Banbridge University, it was life that had let her down. Poppy hasn’t got a back up plan so at almost 30 finds herself back at home in the bedroom she had thought had been left behind with teenage years. They say things come in threes and that couldn’t be more true for Poppy as the following day she faces the betrayal of the two closest people to her.
Being shell shocked and jobless she picks herself up and goes off to the unemployment office. This is more than a frustrating encounter for Poppy but quite an hilarious one for me as a reader. Having her doctorate compared to Captain Bird’s eye just didn’t give her confidence of being employed in the not too distant future. Fate can lend a hand though when you least expect it, with a job and an encounter with an old friend Leanne, who has the most delish twin brother ever. Things are looking up for Poppy.
This is a story of taking chances, true friendships and thinking of others not just yourself. It makes you feel good just to read it. It makes you think about the choices you make not just for yourself but how they impact other people too, in good ways and bad. Do you want to be a solo player thinking only of yourself or a team player. This is a real buck you up book that puts more than just a smile on your face.
