When Cheryl’s husband decides he’s met his true love at last, she is left to make do with their three children and, oh yes, to welcome unexpected child # four. Amid the chaos of a new baby, diapers, sleepless nights, and kids pushing the boundaries, her teens help out by signing her up for online dating. Thus begins Cheryl’s hilarious search for a new identity…as in Mrs. Someone Else…in DWF: Divorced White Female. This unpredictable, irreverent, and snarky look at starting over in today’s dating world had me giggling throughout. Or laughing outright. Cheryl is a kick - full of moxie as she struggles to keep a balance between bad dates and maintain the appropriate “churchy” countenance while checking out her son’s religious fanaticism on a Sunday. Is it luck that brought her to that church to meet the handsome Trent? Or is it God’s hand? Another attractive possibility is Carleton, a suave gent who turns her head and crams it with thoughts of what might be. But is he as good a catch as he seems? Carol McClain’s natural gifts of sparkling dialogue, quirky yet real characters, and side-splitting humor made this book a page-turner to the last. As an author myself, I often found lines so witty, I wished they’d been written by my own hand. In fact, today I scanned the beginning of the book for a name clarification and before I realized, I’d read past chapter 2. Again! It’s that good. Do yourself a favor and get a copy. Highly recommended.

I just finished reading DWF! What an excellent book. Having met my husband online, this book really intrigued my interest. Carol tells the story so well it makes you feel all of the main character, Cheryl's, emotions. This book is so true to life, while still keeping the reader entertained. I didn't want to put it down! Great job, I look forward to future books!

Cheryl Chandler finds herself divorced and pregnant. Raising three teenagers and her desire to find another mate adds to her mid-life crisis as well.  Colorful characters fill the pages of this novel. Taylor, Cheryl's son who switched from a life of crime to Christianity, offers sanity in his teenage way to Cheryl's home. Bobbie Jo, a germaphobe, Andi, a vegetarian and Baby Marina bring chaos and at the same time joy to Cheryl's life. Martin, Cheryl's ex-husband, and his new wife, are a continual thorn in Cheryl's middle-aged flesh with their self-centered lifestyle.  In the midst of Cheryl's difficult and sad situation, Carol McClain couches the entire story in humor. I laughed out loud throughout the entire book.  Especially when Cheryl sets out on her first date, but must repair her high heels with duct tape before she goes into the restaurant to meet the guy.  The Christian message is evident in the story, but by no means preachy. The gospel is clear in a non-religious way. The author allows us to see joy in the midst of pain and difficulty. I am hooked now on Carol McClain's books. I will remain one of her loyal fans.

Cheryl has a positive pregnancy test right after her husband announces he's leaving her to marry his coworker… because she's pregnant. Her house is full of teens, one of whom has Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. And she needs a job. Anyone else would be overwhelmed, but Cheryl is a survivor with a sharp wit and a freezer full of Ben and Jerry's! Enjoy the read!

I loved this book. Rarely does a book come along that can hold me to the page and urge me to hurry and finish. Not only did it do that, but I laughted and I cried. I agonized with Cheryl and I laughed at her antics. Carol McClain's portrayal of a a DWF is so true to life. The reader is in for a treat. Kudos on this debut novel. I look forward to more!

Do you want a Christian redemption story that's not preachy and is easy to relate to? This is the book for you! Do you want a character you can relate to instead of some weird mash up of Martha Stewart and Giselle?  This is the book for you. Do you want humor and romance that isn't predictable and stays below an R rating? This is the book for you. Cheryl is a lovable, relatable main character.  She has all of the positive qualities you want in a main character to really be able to pull for her and just enough chaotic characteristics to make her unpredictable and endearing.  She messes up, she freaks out, she succeeds. The supporting cast of characters is well developed.  They support Cheryl's story beautifully and all serve important roles in the development of the plot and Cheryl's character.  You know these people in real life and it's fun to see them come to life throughout this book.   I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.  Currently rereading it.  I highly recommend it!

I loved how this book was written with real life scenarios that can be challenging for any of us, but enabling the reader to look at these with a sense of humor and touches of faith. I laughed through this book and could relate to the characters well. Carol's writing style is unique and thoroughly entertaining. I look forward to reading more of her books!
