Short Story Romance - Love Under the Bubble Wrap - a Novelette
Love Under the Bubble Wrap - a Novelette begins with the arrival of a mysterious gift (hence, the bubble wrap). With a pressure-filled life, a recently disabled husband, and the shine dulled on her fifteen-year marriage, the package arrives just in time to provide a pleasing distraction from Debi's problems. The female leading lady isn't your typical twenty-something drop-dead gorgeous reedy willow. No, this is a story about a marriage in trouble and real life issues to which many readers will relate.
Ms. Shepherd's romantic escape comes complete with humor, romance, and even a little mystery to solve. Anyone in a relationship who has ever hit upon one of life's snags will relate to Debi and will laugh at the lengths she goes to solve her personal mystery.
According to the popular blog Chick Lit Books, hen lit books "feature women who are a little (and sometimes a lot) older than the average chick lit heroine. Generally, you will find the main characters dealing with normal situations, such as jobs, love the second time around, family situations, and more" -- a perfect description for this novelette. For less than the cost of a fancy coffee, Love Under the Bubble Wrap is the perfect length to read on your lunch break - or anytime!
