I'm delighted to be one of the stops on the blog tour for Blind Dates, Big Love & Six Tinder Weeks by Bena Roberts and sharing my review today. First of all let's take a look at the description for the book...
Helen's children leave home at eighteen. She sleepwalked through her marriage of twenty years for their sake. But when they go, she leaves her husband. Her house is a mess, as is her image and Helen breaks down. Through her pain, she draws blood and allows the universe to guide her and her decisions.
The unexpected happens, scientist Helen gets thrown into a new life of hedonism, dating, and self-discovery. A charming lawyer steals her heart, but is Helen ready for the fast lane? Will the local village firefighter provide the romance of her dreams? Or the military spy CJ, who is convinced that Helen is part of a Romanian smuggling gang.
With the help of her sister Portia, Helen starts to transform her life. The universe guides her to finding something in herself.
Debut author Bena Robert's provides a unique perspective in this witty black comedy. Dark humor meets chick lit with a robust and realistic voice.

I really enjoyed Bena Roberts writing style it was witty and had a down to earth feel to it meaning I was either smiling or giggling away to myself. Helen's escapades in the world of online dating were lots of fun. Helen threw herself into some pretty funny situations and I couldn't help but hope for a happy ever after for her. Especially after having being in an unhappy marriage for so long. Even though Helen was going through a rough patch I loved her determination and upbeat personality and how she just picked herself back up and carried on.
Helen meets a variety of people from the selfish to the strange on what I guess you would call a journey of discovery. There really is a complete mix of characters that made things very entertaining! The plot moves quickly and with it being a short read I ended up reading it in one evening. I just had to know how it would all end!
Different, fun and entertaining!
Four stars from me!
