The following review is part of my being in the author’s review team, which ensures that you can read it before the book comes out.
The following review is the first of as many as I can write before Aged to Perfection, a 19-novella anthology featuring everything over 40, will be released, and likely more afterwards. Paranormal Women’s Fiction in its best form: as many as you can get!
What the story is about
My Big Fat Hairy Wedding
Book: Aged to Perfection
Author: Robyn Peterman
Date published: 15 February, 2022
A forty-something Shifter supermodel, five supernaturally screwed-up bridesmaids, and a demonic mother of the groom determined to ruin the wedding. This marriage is going to Hell. Literally.
Finding friends in unexpected places
Swoozie is a supermodel at the end of her career, engaged to Chance, a hot and amazing Demon. However, Chance does have a huge problem: his overbearing mother. As they plan their wedding, his mum is the one who calls the shots… or so she thinks.
The problem comes when she insists on a specific number of bridesmaids. She wants six of them, which makes it difficult for Swoozie, who does not have many friends (by choice). Sure, Johnson should not be a bridesmaid, but who cares? Certrainly not Swoozie! After all, he is her best friend, and he does love wearing caftans. Her other BFF, Connie, is another given.
But where will she find four other bridesmaids? At a Tupperware club, of course! However, this is just the place where Swoozie will find the least expected thing: friends. Three amazing middle-aged supernaturals, who have been considered “rejects” among their own people, simply because they are different.
In the midst of many a laugh, and of several “awww” moments (on our end, but maybe on theirs, too), Swoozie and her friends, old and newfound, are still in search of the elusive sixth.
Mother-in-law from Hell (literally and figuratively)
If you think that your mother-in-law is a pain in the neck, wait until you meet Chamunda. She makes some of the worst of them look like angels. Yet, for Swoozie, Chamunda is what stands between her and her happily ever after. Or is she?
Here’s your Chance
I had to make that pun. I’m not sorry. Chance is the Demon we would all want to have by our side. A definite keeper, you say? Oh, yes!
He and his love are what Swoozie fights for, with the help of her friends, and he is very worth it.
A one-shot deal
This novella is not part of any of Robyn Peterman’s ongoing series, as My Big Fat Hairy Wedding is a finite story.
In other words, it is not the start of a new series, either. And it is perfect just as it is.
Fun, hilarious, caring, full of friendship and of a mother-in-law out of your worst nightmares. A great read, very worthy of
A demonically hairy five stars!
