Fiction Addiction Tour Blog Review A Little Bit Of Madness By Sheryl Browne

TO CELEBRATE VALENTINES DAY BUT IT IS ALSO A FABULOUS PUBLICATION DAY FOR A SPECIAL AUTHOR SHERYL BROWNE! HER NEW BOOK A LITTLE BIT OF MADNESS IS OUT TODAY!
HERE IS MY REVIEW...
Title: A Little Bit Of MadnessAuthor: Sheryl Browne
Publisher: Safkhet Publishing
Publication Date: 14th February 2013


Celia Summers, intrepid mother of two, is too cuddly for sweatpants, she suspects. But then, her class at The Harbour Rest Home are similarly clad. Celia loves her work as an art therapist. She's proud that she gives her elderly independents something to look forward to, even if her partner, Martin, disapproves of her efforts. He also has other things on his mind - telling complicated lies to Celia so he can sell Charlton Hall, his mum's house, to pay off his debts.

Meanwhile, Celia fights to secure gallery space for her geriatric charges' artwork, and to keep The Harbour from being closed. She's even ready to abseil from a church steeple to bring attention to the plight of her old people, no matter that she might fall and end up splattered all over the flagstones. When she does fall, however, it's much more painful - in love with PC Alex Burrows. Will he be her white knight in blue and ride to her rescue?

What a perfect day for Sheryl's new book to be published, Happy 
Valentines Day everyone! Now im going to make this a extra special review just because it's Valentines day! Now I want to say I am very grateful that Sharon from Fiction Addiction Book Tours and Sheryl Browne for  asking me to review this new book A Little Bit Of Madness. First of all when I first got my hands on a copy, I loved it straight away, the bold pink cover was shouting out to me. . ."pleasee read me, pleasee!"


We meet Celia Summers an art therapist who works at The Harbour Rest Home and also a mother of two with a useless partner Martin. Life couldn't be simpler for Celia until The Harbour is about to be shut down and frightened of losing her art studio, Celia with oldies Eleanor,May,The Colonel all come together to stop The Harbour from being shut down, Celia even comes with the idea to abseil from a church steeple. . .wouldn't be a wise choice really but they need the attention. . .with an expected visit of PC Alex Burrows, will Celia's plan work, will Alex be her knight in shining Armour.

A Little Bit Of Madness was a fantastic read, had me giggling pretty much every chapter. I loved all the mix of characters and how they all got on so well together especially the oldies hehe, Oh May had me in such fits of giggles :).

I loved the chemistry between Celia and Alex and I was clapping my hands by the end Yay :) I disliked Rosemary at first and Martin, I thought Rosemary came across as a snob and didn't really like Celia, she thought Celia was just after Martin for his money which wasn't that at all. I disliked Martin even more because he just came across in the book as being rather sly and started keeping things from Celia is just very  hurtful and not very nice to keep secrets.

My Favourite character even though I did love Celia's warm caring character but my all time favourite would have to be May, one of the oldies from the rest home, She certainly had me giggling at a lot of things she did but also reminded me of how wacky my gran can be at times too. I was glad it was a dishy gorgeous Police man too, I love a man in uniform hehe ;) thank you Sheryl!

I definitely enjoyed this book so much, I really couldn't put it down tbh, I just kept wanting to see what was happening next with the crazy bunch of characters. I do say you all need to grab a copy of this wonderful book by the ever so lovely Sheryl Browne, You are not going to be disappointed I'm telling you!
