The anonymously published Dear Life program is designed to help them step outside of their comfort zones, face their obstacles, and relinquish their demons...and prove their existence.

Add to Goodreads: http://bit.ly/2hnwsxpWhen I see the name Meghan Quinn I think romcom. Dear Life, while having spots of humor and romance, is not something I would classify as a romcom at all. But the synopsis caught my eye and I thought I would give this a try.
Dear Life gives us the story of four people thrust together at a support group dealing with moving on in life. We had Daisy, a sheltered young woman who had lived with her grandmother and had been homeschooled. Hollyn who was a young widow. Jace, a famous baseball player who had recently given his daughter up for adoption, and Carter, a young man struggling to free himself from a debt. Each had their own struggle to work on and watching them interact as a group was interesting.
My problem with this book was the pacing. We had four main characters and there were times that I felt I had just connected with one and we moved on to the next person and I was back figuring out where that character was in their journey. So at times it felt choppy to me.
I did come to care about all of the characters-it just took me a little longer to get connected than I expected. There were some moments of humor that had me chuckling sprinkled throughout this book, which I enjoyed. This book did make me think of some things differently and overall I did like it.

About the Author:
A BLONDE AT HEART Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped. Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking. Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
