Rating: 4.5 Cherries
Review by: Fern

Tired of unappreciative losers who leave her behind, Quinn Gallagher decides it’s time for a whole new Quinn. Someone who is bold and brave and sexy.

So…what happens when one woman tries to reinvent herself to try and find love? With the help of a seventy-something former burlesque dancer; a crash course in fishnets, walking, and wooing; and a very sexy leading man; it can be good, it can be bad, but it is definitely hot and hilarious.

There is the sweetest delight in finding a first person narrative that makes you laugh until you cry, and that’s exactly what The Mighty Quinn will do. Sommer Marsden has created a heroine so loveable and relatable you’ll cheer for her even when she does things that make you close your eyes and shake your head. This isn’t a story, it’s sharing of events from start to finish, and the indelible Quinn is your guide. I was hooked by the end of the prologue. Quinn’s voice is that of every scorned and heartbroken woman the world over. Let’s face it. Who hasn’t turned to Ben and Jerry’s, cigarettes, and alcohol after being dumped?

There is so much to say about the story, all of which is good. It’s perfectly written, well plotted, and extraordinarily funny. Quinn grows with every page, becoming a confident woman that is unafraid and unashamed, and it’s a thing of beauty. She unravels like a shiny Christmas present, and as she does, so will you. Think Cinderella, but with a burlesque fairy godmother, four inch pumps instead of slippers, and pint sized ankle biter instead of mice. Oh, and that hunky Prince charming isn’t too bad either!

Take the journey, enjoy the voice of Quinn, and fall in love with her just as I did. A keeper for sure, I adored The Mighty Quinn!
