Diary of a Dieter Blog Tour

Curvy girl, Charlene Winters, had it all: the great career, wonderful friends and a dreamy fiancĂ©. 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. With the heartache of her fiancĂ©’s infidelity 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? Frustrated by 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.

Born and bred in Essex, England, Marie Coulson discovered her love of writing in her early teens. Beginning with poetry and song lyrics, she tried her hand at creative writing while studying for her English GCSE. It was love at first line. Unfortunately, Marie's career as a childcare and education practitioner soon took up most of her time and writing became something she only dreamed about. In the summer of 2012 she quit her job and enrolled at university, ready to start a new career as a therapist. This left her with a lot of time on her hands and on August the 20th she sat down and wrote the first chapter of Bound Together. Bound Together was a story that had been waiting three years to be written and when fingers hit the keyboard...Layla, Jared and Ollie's story was born. Marie has since written and released two novels in the Bound Together series and a novella. Her romantic comedy novel Diary Of A Dieter has also received excellent reviews and is the debut novel in  the Confessions series.

This book definitely had some moments that were so funny I had tears!! OMG I will NEVER look at denture cream the same! Not that I ever gave it much attention before, but I will think of this book every time I see a tube of it now!

Charlene is dumped 3 weeks before her wedding. Her 2 best girl friend's and her best friend Adam try to help her move on. Charlene has some ridiculous dates thanks to her gal pals, that end up being so funny you will cry. Even their idea of working out is more than Charlene can handle. Then there is Adam. He is a constant in her life, and always says and does the right thing when she needs him most. He even succeeds in helping her drop the pounds she wants. She always saw him as her best friend for 20 yrs and was blind to what was in front of her. Will Adam suck it up and FINALLY confess his feelings to Charlene? will she feel the same or only see him as her best friend? 

This book was different from what I normally read. There were times I did feel it was a little slow perhaps, but overall it had a good story line and made me laugh. This is a book you read when you are having a bad week and just need to feel happy! I give this book 3.75 stars!
