REVIEW for Between a Rock and a Hot Place

Thank you to the wonderful people at HarperCollins Canada for sending me this book.

TITLE:           Between a Rock and a Hot Place

AUTHOR:     Tracey Jackson

GENRE:         Novel

RATING:       4 Stars

I am getting closer and closer to 50, which is, of course, one of the reasons I found myself gravitating to this book. What freaks me out is that it seems as though 50 is coming so quickly - I could swear I was only 30 yesterday!


Having said that, I feel the need to find humour in getting older and I found it, in spades, in this book. Jackson manages to write a book that made me smile at the prospect of being 50 and more! She has a great way of putting things in perspective and even manages to deal with difficult and touchy subjects such as hormone therapy and IBS - it takes some kind of writing to actually make these interesting subjects that I actually want to read about.

I think this book should be read by all women - those nearing 50 or over and those in their 30's - because you will not believe how quickly the years pass, but at least, you can get a chuckle and a laugh out of it, thanks to Between a Rock and a Hot Place.

You can count me in the over 50 gang. I'll have to try to read this soon.
