Diary of a Dieter

Diary of a Dieter by Marie Coulson

 

synopsis_thumb2

Curvy girl, Charlene Winters, had it all: the great career, wonderful friends and a dreamy fiancé.

With her wedding day just three weeks away, Charlene is dealt a devastating blow. Suddenly finding her life, hopes and plans in tatters, the jilted bride sinks into despair and a tub of Ben and Jerry’s cookie dough. After discovering the depths of her fiancĂ©’s infidelity and with the heartache still fresh, Charlene’s whisked away by her friends on a life-changing holiday. But how will this big fish cope now that she’s back in the dating pond and surrounded by slender trouts with Botox lips?

With best friend Adam thwarting her attempts at romance, and her girls Vanessa and Dana eager to set her up with a boy toy, Charlene decides the time for change is upon her. What she needs is a change of scenery, a change of dress size and maybe, a change of heart.

4 out of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book. I liked Charlene, Adam, and their friends. There were some seriously funny parts and the Grandmother cracked me up (she was priceless!). Charlene had some really interesting dating adventures. Oh my! There were quite a few times I laughed out loud.

The first half of the book had a slow build laying out the story and the second half just flew by! It was funny, emotional, had some sexy times in it, and slightly heartbreaking on occasion. I was on the edge of my seat by the end and totally invested.

I really loved how Charlene grew and came to her senses. I wasn’t a fan of her self deprecating attitude but since she had gone through so much I completely understood where it came from. I was glad to see her accept and really embrace herself and by the end she was so much stronger for it.

And Adam? I love Adam. I *LOVE* Adam. Sweet and sexy. He was a great character! There was one time where I might have yelled at my Kindle about something he did but he redeemed himself by the end.

I would totally recommend this book for a fun, lighthearted, make you laugh out loud read!
