When Lauren divorces her husband, she has one thought on her mind... stepping off the merry-go-round. However, her life quickly turns into a three-ring circus: her hypochondriac father moves in, her ex is using her shower when she’s not home, and her perky assistant is pushing her out into the fearsome dating world.
She also must decide if the dilapidated barn and vintage merry-go-round she is awarded in the divorce settlement is a blessing or a bane. As if Lauren’s personal life isn’t chaotic enough, this slightly jaded attorney is overrun with a cast of quirky characters who can’t stay on the right side of the law.
What’s a woman to do? She can allow life to spin her in circles forever. Or she can reach out and grab the brass ring.
The Merry-Go-Round is a bright and comical tale of divorce, determination, second thoughts… and second chances.
“…complex, funny, and realistic.” ~Wilmington News Journal
“…an utterly charming romantic comedy that pulled me in right from the start. Award-winning author Donna Fasano skillfully weaves a story consisting of funny, imperfect characters, love lost and found, sexual attraction, and an old merry-go-round. Told with humor and honesty, this novel is an entertaining and satisfying read. I highly recommend it!” ~ Karen McQuestion, author of A Scattered Life
