Diary of a Dieter by Marie Coulson-Blog Tour

on February 11, 2014

Curvy girl, Charlene Winters, had it all: the great career, wonderful friends and a dreamy fiancé. With her wedding day just three weeks away, Charlene is dealt a devastating blow. Suddenly finding her life, hopes and plans in tatters, the jilted bride sinks into despair and a tub of Ben and Jerry’s cookie dough. With the heartache of her fiancé’s infidelity still fresh, Charlene’s whisked away by her friends on a life-changing holiday. But how will this big fish cope now that she’s back in the dating pond and surrounded by slender trouts with Botox lips? Frustrated by best friend Adam thwarting her attempts at romance, and her girls Vanessa and Dana eager to set her up with a boy toy, Charlene decides the time for change is upon her. What she needs is a change of scenery, a change of dress size and maybe, a change of heart.

Born and bred in Essex, England, Marie Coulson discovered her love of writing in her early teens. Beginning with poetry and song lyrics, she tried her hand at creative writing while studying for her English GCSE. It was love at first line. Unfortunately, Marie’s career as a childcare and education practitioner soon took up most of her time and writing became something she only dreamed about. In the summer of 2012 she quit her job and enrolled at university, ready to start a new career as a therapist. This left her with a lot of time on her hands and on August the 20th she sat down and wrote the first chapter of Bound Together. Bound Together was a story that had been waiting three years to be written and when fingers hit the keyboard…Layla, Jared and Ollie’s story was born. Marie has since written and released two novels in the Bound Together series and a novella. Her romantic comedy novel Diary Of A Dieter has also received excellent reviews and is the debut novel in  the Confessions series.

Brilliant writing, hilarious characters, emotional connections, awesome story, relatable characters & situations, & lots of mouth open shocking moments, just to name a few! You will fall in love with Adam, relate to Charlene & her friends, & wish u were eating lunch with grandma because she’s such a character! Of course you’re going to be glad she’s not YOUR Gran because OMG I would be some embarrassed!! haha!

Charlene was the perfect lead role! She’s real! Not a size 0 little Miss perfect! No a healthy woman with real needs & real issues! Most of those involving a MAN! LOL Having her heart broken early on, Charlie’s on a mission to find happiness! To help her out are her Bff’s & her best friend, Adam. I’m not going to lie, I wanted to go through the book & shake her more than once!! I mean Adam is this super hot guy! Just make a move already!! LOL Just when we least expect it things go way wrong, which is always funny as hell, then way right(that makes you go “awwwww”!

I loved how this book had me LOL with Gran & her shenanigans to Charlene & her dating escapades one minute then having a tender moment with Charlie & her bff’s or Adam!! Amazing job Marie!! I can’t wait for “Confessions” #2!!
This book is A MUST read!!!-Jen
