Review: BOX OF ROCKS by Karla Telega

WARNING: Do not read this book while eating. To do so may cause you to choke to death on your own laughter.

I'll start by paying new author Karla Telega the highest form of compliment I can give: in many ways, her writing reminds me of that of bestselling author Janet Evanovich. Another reviewer has compared Maggie and Cher to Thelma and Louise, and I can see that...but to me, they're more like Stephanie Plum and Lula for the AARP crowd
I've been a fan of Ms. Telega's blog for some time now. If you haven't yet had the privilege, check it out--you're in for a real treat. Telega has her liver-spotted finger on the weak pulse of over-50 women everywhere.



But getting back to BOX OF ROCKS--Karla Telega has created characters that are outrageously funny but at the same time people readers can relate to--even Bear (admit it--who hasn't had a Wile E. Coyote moment in their lives?).
As author and co-founder of upstart publisher Adoro Books, Karla Telega has published a book that's been handled with pure professionalism, start to finish--from Karla's exceptional writing to the fine editing skills of Martin Rus and Rosanne Dingli to the brilliant cover art of El Kartun, which would stand out anywhere. I am so pleased to see that this is just the beginning of a series!

  2. What a great book! The humour is just like classic Karla-style, and we all know what her blogs are like. If you don't laugh at this book, then there must be something wrong with you.

    My review will be going up later today.
