FOURTEEN DAYS LATER
Trade Paperback/Kindle EBook
Rating: 5 Cups
Helen is a wedding photographer. She is very close to her best friend Ayshe and her family. She has lost a bit of weight since her breakup with her ex. She has always longed for a family of her own.
Kamel is Ayshe's brother. He comes from a loving and loud Turkish-Cypriot family. He is extremely handsome, with a great sense of humor and teaches art.
Since she found an extra large size thong in her live-in boyfriend's pocket and kicked him out, Helen has been in a bit of a slump. She has always dreamed of a loving family and husband of her own, and feels that it will never happen. Her best friend Ayshe convinces her that she can change her life in fourteen days, and Helen will definitely never be the same again. Whether that is a good or bad thing is the issue as the two weeks progress. Always a disaster magnet, things escalate as Helen tries each new thing.
This story was impossible for me to put down. I just wanted to see what was going to happen to Helen next. Whether her adventure was funny, embarrassing, or sad, the author always managed to end it with a lighter note. Ayshe is the best friend Helen could have and her family is very real; not perfect, but loving enough to include Helen. Kamel is very handsome, but he also has his faults. The often sarcastic dialogue is witty and well written, and Helen's adventures are often bizarre and always funny. Helen is very easy to relate to and I liked her immediately. I also enjoyed that the author included a bit of her Turkish-Cypriot culture in the story. This story is a must for readers of romantic comedy.
