“The One-Legged Lady From Balmoral Road”

Here’s a title that will grab your attention! What could it be about? How did she lose the leg? If you are a reader who can’t get enough of cozy chick lit books then this is perfect for you! This is the type of book I like to get all cozy and read on a cold rainy day. It’s a quick read with ALL of those ‘You Couldn’t Make It Up’ moments that every one will understand whether they know someone who has gone through it or they are that someone. Get cozy and get reading!

Before I get too far into this post I would just like to thank the lovely Karen Stanley, the author of this book, for allowing me to read her book and do a book review on my blog about it. Karen has been absolutely lovely to work with and I will definitely be reading more from this up and coming author!


Karen Stanley takes you through the rollercoaster ride that is the life of a mobile hairdresser. Kaz is a young 30 something living in a whirlwind of everything life spits at her. She goes from crappy client to crappy client everyday and has a boyfriend, who of course is married but plans to leave the wife to be with Kaz…yeah right, they never do. Luckily she has Mags, her best friend for life who has an amazing hubby who will always come to their rescue when they’ve popped one too many win bottles.

Mags of course wants what is best for Kaz but does Kaz know what is best for herself? There is a cute guy named Jed who cares for her next door but yet the married boyfriend always slides his way back through the door. That slippery little bastard might be the best she ever had but who knows, maybe Jed is better? Will she ever find out for herself though or will she continue to put herself through heart ache and misery? A girl can only put herself through so much before she practically has a full blown melt down in the smart new deli on Charter Street.

I don’t want to spoil anymore of the book so you’ll just have to read it yourself and find out what happens to Kaz in her crazy downward spiral of life. Will she hit bottom and pick herself up again? I’ll leave links down below for all the ways you can purchase this book but I definitely recommend it for all you chick lit readers out there or anyone in the need for a new author who will make you just crawl into bed and read for the afternoon. This is the girl for you! Karen Stanley has made her debut in the book world and you can tell we will be seeing a lot more from her in the upcoming future. I know I look forward to reading more of her books.


I’ll be seeing all you lovely readers soon. I finally decided to join the dark side and get myself a Kindle so you can expect a lot more book reviews coming up. Hardcover and Paperback books will always have my heart, but who can argue when Amazon Prime members get free books? I can’t complain, its a bookworms dream. Love you all and I wish you happy reading!
