Overview

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 has to decide if the dilapidated barn and vintage merry-go-round she was awarded in the divorce settlement is a blessing or a bane. As if Lauren's personal life isn't chaotic enough, this slightly jaded attorney is overrun with a cast of quirky characters who can't stay on the right side of the law. 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.

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

Fasano (Following His Heart) plays it safe in her aptly titled novel about lawyer Lauren Flynn’s romantic crisis. With her divorce from hunky charmer Greg finally complete, Lauren is free to move on. At least that’s the advice she gets from her receptionist, Norma Jean. Lauren isn’t so sure, especially since the barn that she received as part of the divorce settlement seems to have strings attached. The supposedly worthless piece of property comes with a valuable vintage merry-go-round—and since Greg has no home or income, he’s living there. Lauren ignores all the sexual sparks that ignite whenever Greg is around; the financial catastrophe he caused obscures her obvious love for him. Meanwhile, she follows Norma Jean’s advice and begins dating. Disaster ensues, of course. Like the eponymous ride, Fasano’s plot is mildly entertaining, safe, and predictable. Fans of cotton-candy characters might enjoy this one, but others will wish that barn housed an antique roller coaster instead. (BookLife)
