Thank you to RaRaResources for the blog tour invite, and thank you to Mary Jayne Baker for my special copy of the book a while back. I’m delighted to be kicking off the blog tour for ‘The Perfect Fit’. Apologies for the lateness, I’m currently writing this blog post with a headache from hell, so if it doesnt make sense, blame that!
What does TWG think?
Its beginning to look like Christmas!!!
Oh no it’s not….
Oh yes it is!
Oh no it’s not….
Oh yes it is!!
Have you ever wondered how a local pantomime is created? I hadn’t, but lets be honest, after reading this book you’ll be glad to know about the ins and outs of the local talent! Or in Maisie’s case, literally….
It’s been a while since I last was in the company of Mary Jayne Baker’s unique mind, however this book was the perfect fit (see what I did there?) as it felt like I had never had a breather between Baker’s books.
Becky has a fiance who is a cactus with a capital P! No, I havent spelt that wrong, but if I put the insult beginning with a P, Amazon wont accept it! Cole infuriated me! What an utterly selfish, selfish man. As for Ryder, well, I was genuinely surprised that he didn’t have the rest of the Paw Patrol gang with him!
‘The Perfect Fit’ has a jam packed cast, full of people with so much colour in their personalities, I needed sunglasses! At times I felt a little bit overwhelmed by the sheer amount of people that I had to keep in my mind, and the confusion as to who was related to who and what not, dented my enjoyment a little.
That said, I throughly enjoyed reading this! I adore Baker’s humour and the way the dialogue flowed brilliantly between each character, and i thought that the banter amongst the residents was great fun.
Humour aside, Baker does include more serious topics such as adoption and IVF, as well as slightly more emotionally based topics to do with mental health and the sense of feeling lost in life. The inclusion of the above topics kept the storyline varied and ensured that the humour wasnt too ‘try hard’ or forced. It worked bloody well.
‘The Perfect Fit’ literally was the perfect fit for me and, during a time where my own mental health is suffering, I couldnt have asked for a better book to escape into.
