    4. This charming romantic comedy has been written by an award winning romance author and it shows The story telling is excellent, the dialogue natural, and the characters are well rounded and engaging The light, witty writing style is the kind that takes years to perfect.I could see where this story was likely to go but not quite how we would get there I loved the humour in it both the exchanges between the main character, Lauren, and her friend and assistant Norma Jean, and the funny set pieces as [...]

    5.

    6. Considered not finishing this one, but there was just enough plot to pull me through On the whole, the writing was unimpressive, the characters one dimensional, the story predictable, and the herione mostly annoying Not my cup of tea.

    7. AudioBook Review This was a sweet, engaging and at times, laugh out loud funny tale told through Lauren s point of view, with the occasional interjection of sense and nonsense from the other characters A plausible romance, with a love relationship not torn asunder by fear of vampires or pack responsibilities no, these were real people, with honest issues that many will find applicable to their own lives There s nothing wrong at all with escape romance, but the profusion of supernatural and paran [...]

    8. It s been awhile since I read a Romance Novel so it was fun to sit down to Donna Fasano s The Merry Go Round Her heroine is a modern woman, a lawyer, who it totally relateable even down to the way society has taught our generation of women to think I chuckled at the flashback that Lauren has of her college years sitting around a pool with her friends, with Lauren being the only one ogling the carpenter working on the house while they sunbathe Lauren s friends are dreaming of men in three piece s [...]

    9. I d like to preface my review by saying that I really don t like the romance genre much I did enjoy The Merry Go Round because it s not a sappy bodice ripper Far, far from your average low budget romance novels formulaic plots This is like a women s fiction meets romance The book opens in a court of law, where the protaganist is suing her husband for a divorce She s angry and feels betrayed over financial setbacks for which she blames him, but you catch on quickly that things aren t as simple a [...]

    10. This book opens in a very unconventional way I read some of this of this genre chicklit and it can be kind of overly formulaic, but I was surprised and intrigued from the get go, I didn t yawn once laughing The book held my attention throughout, but it is a bit predictable I guess that s the downfall of this genre, it rarely surprises me HOWEVER, I did like the way it unfolded The story moved along quickly and interestingly The merry go round was a nice backdrop side story that I thought was pre [...]

    11. I want to call this a cute story but I have to admit to actually crying in the first chapter alone Somehow weeping doesn t fit with cuteBut I was immediately drawn into a light hearted telling of a very serious disconnection of two people in my opinion It was lovely to see reconciliation at the heart of many characters, and people stepping outside themselves just long enough to catch a glimpse of a bigger, brighter, beautiful picture

    17. The merry go round was traveling in reverse The horses, tigers, bears, zebras were all circling tail end first as if competing in some bizarre, backward race The Merry Go RoundThirty eight year old lawyer Lauren Flynn harbours a lot of resentment toward her soon to be ex husband, Greg All she wants from him is his signature on the divorce papers Or at least that s what she tells herself.While I didn t feel that this was a comedy, it was one of the best romances I ve read in a long time Engaging [...]

    18. It s been years since I read a romance book, but I don t think I could have chosen a better one for a wonderfully entertaining evening Once started, I found I couldn t stop I found myself laughing and my eyes misting I emphatized with the main character, Lauren, as she dealt with the day to day pressures of her job, a cantankerous old man of a father, and attempted to get back into the dating game, all the while fighting an overwhelming attraction for the man she just divorced.By the time I fini [...]

    19. What a perfect title for this book Lauren is the merry go round She, maybe, was a nice person once upon a time but turned into such an arrogant bitter woman I hated her I wondered if there were any redeeming qualities that Greg could love any She was in such a sad state, and was completely unaware Greg had so much integrity, he deserved better Honestly not many men would have stuck around, and they could have justifiably walked away.I wouldn t mind reading a follow up to this story, was Lauren w [...]

    21. The Merry Go Round by Donna FasanoThis story had a complexity that had the reader turning the page wondering what was next At first, it appeared to be the typical divorced woman plot but the interaction with the other characters brought unique twists While I honestly did not like that the husband was a weak character It does take all types in the world and not every book needs to show positive traits in the main character It just doesn t happen often and does add to the uniqueness of the book Fr [...]

    22. This was absolutely my favorite romance novel to read within the past year It was so well written and so emotional I was completely invested in it from beginning to end.It was definitely unconventional the protagonist divorces the man we like in the very beginning What follows is an inner journey of sorts as Lauren figures out who she is and what she wants out of life By the end, I was absolutely in love with all the awesome characters, and I teared up when Lauren got her happily ever after.This [...]

    23. Would make a good Lifetime movieIn the end, the author picked up the pace with wit, which is exactly what drew me to the book in the beginning I like dialog, especially when I know that the author is intelligent And she s very quick with words That s why when she s explaining how the characters felt, it made me feel as if I had gone back a couple of grades in schoolI like to figure out how the characters in a book feel and what makes them tick, by myself I like the authorI just like to draw my [...]

    24. I am just a sentimental sap when it comes to these light fluffy cotton candy stories, which is what this story was It didn t have much depth melting as soon at it hit my eyes The story was quite predictable, but it had a few fun moments, especially when they were able to get the merry go round working It reminded me of my younger days when riding the merry go round The last time I rode a merry go round was in December 2012, at the Mall with my daughter and granddaughter, we laughed the whole rid [...]

    25. The Merry Go Round was a quick and easily read novella The romance and its conclusion were predictable, but that s why I read romances for the happily ever after I was not disappointed The book dealt well with family and relationship issues There was humor in the book, but not enough that I would call it a romantic comedy, it was a light romance Just the thing for a lazy summer afternoon.I would be interested in reading from Donna Fasano I received my copy from NetGalley in exchange for an hon [...]
