With some new attention from the hottest guy she’s ever met, Ginger can’t help but wonder…is this all too good to be true?

Review on Goodreads, Amazon and BookBub:  “Emotional struggle, romantic, funny, and enduring. The storyline is fantastic, addressing an age-old problem that many women have struggled through and shows that it can be different. Many of the issues that women have with weight are addressed and done in a forthright manner. It is a shame that the world, in general, is not taught from a young age, that weight should not be a factor. The heart is the most beautiful thing in a person and we should all judge from that and not the dress size. I loved the way the author addressed all those problems and showed the effects that they have on a person. Awesome read!!!” – ddeegott, Donadee’s Corner
