Book Reviews: The Happy Spinster by Karena Marie
|5 stars, 3 reviews|
Karena Marieabout this book: The Happy Spinster is an erotic novella about an unmarried woman, with no children in her early forties. Tawny is single, living in Montreal, Quebec. She has a full life of friends and her own business. She meets a man, Troy, from Texas, whom is visiting Montreal for a weekend. They meet up, and what starts out as a one night stand evolves into more. After a night filled with passion, Tawny must make a decision that could affect the rest of her life.
My book is erotica for mature women. It shows how being a spinster is not the disgrace it was 100 years ago. Times have changed. Now, being a spinster is a status a woman can be proud of and embrace. A spinster is no longer the older Aunt, living with and dependent on other family members to survive. A modern day spinster is independent, self supportive, strong, and enjoys a healthy sex life.
The title came about when one of my friend's husband was making fun of me for being single and childless. He had no idea his wife of 27 years was in the middle of making plans to leave and divorce him. So, when he was "insulting" me, I told him I would much rather be a Happy Spinster, than an un-happily married woman!
The difficult part of writing erotica is that you need to have a good story line. It is not just writing about sex, sex and sex. You hope your readers enjoy the erotic parts, but are also following a flowing plot with a satisfying ending. You need to create a balance between the two.

Bravo, Karena Marie!For taking that step outside the box. Keep Up the great writing. Cannot wait to read your next book!
Hot!I have to admit I have not read many erotic books but I did read the Happy Spinster and thoroughly enjoyed it. I found the characters to be real, the sex scenes hot and and the ending surprising. I thought the dialogue was realistic and it was possible to relate to the characters. Oh, and did I mention that the sex scenes were hot?
The most impressive aspect to this book for me was that it is not just a thin story line designed merely to support the erotica. The characters have depth.
I would like to congratulate Karena Marie on her writing and I would recommend the Happy Spinster to readers of this genre.
Fresh and OriginalI really liked this book. It had a lot of hot, steamy scenes, but added as well was the transition into "making love". The story evolved and I really liked the ending. [by Sue]
