(Review) A Pinch of Ooh La La by Renee Swindle

by Cyrus Webb

Tuesday is right around the corner, and that means lots of new music and books will be entering the arena, vying for your attention. If there is one book you should DEFINITELY make a point of adding to your reading list it would have to be A PINCH OF OOH LA LA by author Renee Swindle

I was introduced to the gifted storyteller through her book SHAKE DOWN THE STARS, and I knew then she would be someone to watch. In A PINCH she doesn't disappoint: getting us into the life of Abbey Ross, a woman who is looking for her happy ever after---but is in danger of losing herself in the process.

The book allows us to see Abbey as a woman who is a businesswoman, doing what she loves: making people happy through her bakery yet still feeling incomplete because her personal life (aside from some colorful friends) was anything but lackluster. When she is introduced to Samuel Howard it seems (on the surface) that her dreams of having the ideal life are going to come true---but at what cost? Not listening to her inner voice and choosing instead to do what is expected she turns down a course where she is giving herself away piece by piece.

In A PINCH OF OOH LA LA Swindle once again finds a way to show that though you might can have it all it doesn't always come in the package we (or others) might expect. Abbey realizes that she has to make some real choices, and though they might be what is best for her it won't necessarily be easy.

I mentioned that Abbey has some friends she can rely on along the way, but another character in the book that makes an appearance in the very beginning and stays present throughout definitely can't be denied----and that is music. Swindle allows that to be the soundtrack of not just Abbey's moods and adventures but a part of the lives of others, too. Music has a way of not just bringing you calm but creating memories that can be pleasant, painful and in some cases peaceful.

Entertaining and definitely a conversation piece for men and women can get something out of, A PINCH OF OOH LA LA serves us a delicious read for the summer.
