  Good afternoon all , hope your Monday is going well . Today I have a new author for you and her short fun read. Mellanie Szereto and her book MAKIN BACON ( The Homegrown Cafe book club book one )

                            BOOK BLURB

  The women of The Homegrown Café Book Club are over 40, single, and loving it. Fate, however, has a different plan with a younger man for every last one of them.

Divorcée Tate Madison wasted 15 years of her life with a liar and a cheat. Now she’s returned to her hometown to open The Homegrown Café, find a sperm donor, and spend time with her family and new friends. Encouraged by her fellow middle-aged book-club buddies, she begs a favor from her younger brother’s best friend - father the child her ex-husband denied her. Complications abound when she discovers she’s attracted to the man who wasn’t supposed to be more than an anonymous profile at the clinic. 

Pig farmer Jim Cochon knows all about in-vitro fertilization, but he’d rather do things the old-fashioned way with the irresistible redhead he’s wanted to marry since he was five. Too bad she refuses his proposal the morning after their attempt to make a baby. He’ll have to convince her second chances are worth taking when happily-ever-after is at stake.

                  MY REVIEW 
  When Tate comes home after a nasty divorce and opens a cafe. She meets the man of her dreams or the dreams of him being a sperm donor. When her book club friends encourage her to go after her brothers best friend . All things comical ensue . There are feelings old and new that arise . Will they be able to get through to the real feelings in their lives

  The characters are hilarious and well written. Tate is a middle aged woman that has had a rough marriage and she just wants a child to help her through . She is a fun loving woman who thinks she is weak but she is really strong . She is also kind of horrible person in the way she treats Jim after they sleep together . She really wasn't very nice to him at all . Jim is the sweet home town guy that every girl wants to fall in love with . He is tall , sexy and sweet  and he would do almost anything for you and take care of you . They are a cute couple together . I love the older woman younger man angle . 

 This is a fun, fast read that you can read in a couple of hours. The characters are fun and complex . The author takes us from flirting to hot and heavy in a matter of pages . This is the first book I have read from this author and found them enjoyable . The author has a way of making you laugh and actually snort a few times . I wish though it was just a little longer for the person in me that wants to see happily ever after . So if you want a fun fast read this is the book for you . I mean who can resist bacon not this girl .
