Getting To Mr. Right Reviews
Three women sign up for a workshop under the guidance of Campbell, a counselor who's spent her career trying to debunk the Prince Charming myth, a concept where women expect a man to rescue them and be the sole source of their happiness. She believes a deeper issue is at heart, one that stems from troubled father/daughter relationships, all of which these three women have. What Campbell doesn't expect, however, is to meet a new man who challenges the very essence of her research, making her wonder if it's all been for naught. What if she's seen as a fraud?As a long-time married woman, I found it interesting to read about the exploits of these women in search of a man, everything from Internet dating to extramarital affairs to "cougarism." The author does a nice job of weaving their stories together and wraps everything up in a satisfying ending. Though I read very little romance, the book kept my interest, and the characters had depth and realism. It's much more than just a series of love stories. While I prefer more action in books and less introspection, the thoughtful exploration of characters made this an enjoyable read.This is the second novel I've read by Ms. Balawyder. "Missi's Dating Adventures" is an equally pleasant read.
A great women's fiction read but really not far from the reality of many women entering mid-life. Do the relationships daughters have with their fathers lead to their choices in or their beliefs about the men they later form relationships with? It would seem that this group of women all carry some sort of baggage from their past relationships as so many of us do in real life. Campbell's questioning of the existence of Prince Charming being a myth is the topic for the little women's group formed by the four women in the book. Missi has been duped by a philandering husband, Suzy exhausted with unsuccessful online dating, Felicity ruled by her father's dominance and the initial abandoning of her real dreams for the sake of keeping her father happy, and Campbell herself, feeling as though there is no such thing as Prince Charming until she is faced with the potential of one which makes her question her initial belief and why she formed the group in the first place and if her belief could be altered.As the women forge friendships amongst themselves, we learn about some of the damage in their pasts which has hindered their happiness in seeking relationships from having trust issues and low expectations. Throughout this well told story, these women begin to learn from one another and help restore one another's esteem and beliefs that there really can be happy endings.
"Getting to Mr. Right" by Carol Balawyder is a great contemporary novel. You might call it women's fiction, although you may not want to do so after reading one of the plotlines about literature in the book. It read initially like entertaining and witty chick lit when it began with the slow breakdown of a sexless marriage. Soon however the characters showed much more depth and scope to limit the book to the theme of just finding a Mr. Right for its characters.The characters all have their baggage and issues, relationship and family problems and work through them in their own ways. The book is uplifting and inspiring while the wonderful voice with its charm and wit takes you through a bittersweet and beautiful book. A very good read.
