Synopsis

***USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR!***
When Lauren divorces her husband, she has one thought on her mind--stepping off the merry-go-round. However, her life quickly turns into a three-ring circus; her hypochondriac father moves in, her ex is using her shower when she's not home, and her perky assistant is pushing her out into the fearsome dating world. She also must decide if the vintage merry-go-round she's awarded in the divorce settlement is a blessing or a curse.
 
As if Lauren's personal life isn't chaotic enough, this sought-after attorney is overrun with a cast of quirky characters who can't stay on the right side of the law.
 
Soon, Lauren isn't so sure this divorce is the solution to her problems that she thought it would be, and memories of the man she loves have her second-guessing herself. What's a woman to do? She can allow life to spin her in circles forever. Or she can reach out and grab the brass ring.

". . .complex, funny, and realistic. . ." ~Wilmington News Journal Book Review
 
The Merry-Go-Round is an utterly charming romantic comedy that pulled me in right from the start. Award-winning author Donna Fasano skillfully weaves a story consisting of funny, imperfect characters, love lost and found, sexual attraction, and an old merry-go-round. Told with humor and honesty, this novel is an entertaining and satisfying read. I highly recommend it! ~ Karen McQuestion, author of A Scattered Life
 

About Donna Fasano

See more books from this Author
Growing up the third child of five-yes, smack dab in the middle and the only girl to boot-Donna Fasano had no idea she would one day be a published author. Her story-telling talents came to light when she conjured lively and elaborate tales of pure blarney (yes, she has a bit of Irish in her blood) for, first, her youngest brother, and years later, her children.Donna sold her first manuscript in 1989, and since then has become a bestselling, award-winning author of over thirty novels and four audio books. She writes under her own name as well as under the pen name, Donna Clayton, and is known for her "smooth, polished" writing style and for creating "strong, complex" characters. Reviewers have described her stories as "poignant," "richly textured," "enticing," and "absorbing." The writing process can be extremely engrossing for Donna, so much so that she's missed appointments with dentists and doctors, lunches with friends and family, and once she even forgot her carpool run. Luckily, the people in her life make allowances for this quirk. Still happily married to her high school sweetheart, she is the mother of two grown sons who have flown the coop. She and her husband share their home with Jake, a black and white, couch-potato border collie, and Roo, a spotted red and cream Australian cattle dog that looks (and acts) like a wild dingo. Donna's spare time is spent reading, walking the countryside and beach, or trying out new recipes from one of the many cookbooks she has collected over the years. Oh, and one night a week she and her hubby nab some alone time from their busy schedules, enjoying a nice glass of wine and a video-preferably a romantic comedy.
