    ¿Dame get up and bake your pies, bake your pies, bake your pies, bake your pies...¿ Marsha belted out the words of the old song as she gathered the ingredients for a cinnamon-fruit cake onto the kitchen counter. Who amongst us hasn¿t sung or hummed while working in the kitchen? I wanted to know where we were going from this. Monica weaves a wonderful tale of the characters, Marsha, Helen, their friends and acquaintances and the interaction. We must also not forget the Mediterranean Matchmaker. Is this a tale of just women looking for a mate? Not really. There is much more to this story. You¿ll have to read it to learn what happens. I found the writing style an easy and enjoyable to read. She creates some wonderfully plausible, lovable, fully fleshed out group of women. The dialogue and descriptions as equally well written. I would love to meet the real life Marsha and Helen they are two fun women to be around. I feel the progression of the story is well delivered. Born in London, England, as a young wife with three children, Monica moved to California. She holds a degree is sociology and was a university professor for many years. To be able to write full time (several non-fiction works), she left the university. That Ridiculous Blue Sky is Monica¿s first novel. I found this first novel by Monica well written and fun to read. I loved the almost quirky characters and their interactions with one another throughout the story. I found myself wanting to know more about these wonderful ladies. It would be fun to spend some time with them. I got the opportunity in this book. They are some characters I think I could call friend. If you are looking for a great read, this is it. I would recommend this novel for all to read and enjoy. Bob Medak, Allbooks Reviews
