Bookers on the Rocks Blog Tour: Book Review + Giveaway

 **I received a complimentary audiobook for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 

About the Book


Book: Bookers on the Rocks

Author: Chautona Havig and Christa DelSorbo

Genre: Christian Contemporary Women’s Fiction

Release date: February 23, 2021

If it ain’t broke, why’s she so intent on fixing it?

Tessa Booker hates romance.

For 25 years, Tessa Booker has insisted that romance is something Hollywood cooked up to sell books and movies. Yes, she knows the word existed before movies. She doesn’t care. That’s her story, and she’s sticking to it.

So, when Ross gets a gentle nudge from Mallory Barrows to look into what Tessa’s doing every day while he’s at work, he discovers a romance in the works – one that sounds a little too “ripped from the pages of his life”!

Who is this woman, and what has she done with his wife? 

Armed with advice from 101 Ways to Romance Your Wife and a copy of the manuscript he printed while she was napping, he’s determined to figure out what’s up with his wife…and if maybe a little romance wouldn’t be a good thing, after all.

In a twist of the “on the rocks trope”, this book introduces the next island in the Independence Islands series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily ever afters.

About the Author

Chautona Havig

Author of the bestselling Aggie and Past Forward series, Chautona Havig lives in an oxymoron, escapes into imaginary worlds that look startlingly similar to ours and writes the stories that emerge. An irrepressible optimist, Chautona sees everything through a kaleidoscope of It’s a Wonderful Life sprinkled with fairy tales. Find her at chautona.com and say howdy—if you can remember how to spell her name.

“The voice of a friend.”

Christa has a great sense of humor and extensive experience with accents, particularly those of the Southern United States and Great Britain. Her most recent credits include: local live musical theatre actress and choreographer, regional radio commercial voice actress, and speaker for national business events.

My Thoughts

The more I read (or listen to) from Chautona Havig, the more I look forward to reading more. No matter the genre, she just had such a way of bringing each story to life and making them unique, and I cannot seem to get enough. Bookers on the Rocks was no exception. This is the eighth book in the Independence Islands series. This series features a variety of stories written by various authors and while you might see some familiar names and places throughout, they can all be read as standalone as well.

Bookers on the Rocks is not your typical love story. Most romances focus on the meet cute and the falling in love...and you know, I absolutely love that... but having been married nearly fifteen years myself, I know that there is so much more beyond that initial period...and it was rather nice to see something a little bit different! Overall, this was a good story and a unique addition to this wonderful romance series... whether you're looking for your next audiobook to listen to or would rather read it yourself, you cannot go wrong with this story either way!
