Kicks Like a Girl — review and giveaway!

March 2, 2014

Over the weekend (besides church, family time, and a craft show) I was privileged to read Melissa Westemeier’s new book, Kicks Like a Girl. You might know the author from her blog, Green Girl in Wisconsin. (If you don’t already read her blog, you should consider heading over there!)  It was a treat to curl up on the sofa with an ice pack on my arm, a blanket on my legs, and ignore winter for hours at a time.

Gretchen is a strong young woman who runs her own business, but while she has confidence in her abilities at work, recent setbacks — being dumped by a long-term boyfriend and having her business broken into and vandalized — have made her feel vulnerable. This story brings the reader along on Gretchen’s quest to become stronger in more than just self-defense, while romance and humor sweeten the kicks and punches.
Filled with believable characters, this book is a fun read that will make you feel like you are one of Gretchen’s own friends. You might even find you have an interest in karate!

I purchased my book (no Kindle here in my possession) directly from Melissa, because I wanted my own signed copy and because I wanted to be able to give a signed copy to one lucky reader.  I will draw a winner at random on Friday.

To win a copy of this book for yourself, please leave a comment telling me about your favorite genre and/or giving me a book recommendation for something you’ve recently read.

Meredith is the WINNER of the drawing! (My 18yo was the unwitting random number generator.) Congratulations! I’ll be contacting you for your mailing address.

    Hi Karen,
    Great idea! I am a mystery lover but I am in a book club here in New Bern and we recently read Three Swans by Jung Chang about 3 generations of women in China. It’s a bit long but is a fascinating history of 20th century China, seen thru the eyes of Chinese living through it.
