at Girl (Romance in Rehoboth #1) by K.L. Montgomery was a fun, entertaining, inspiring, feels invoking read that has brought me full circle.. I say that because I have read all of the other books in this series before this one. As I have said in my intro, not my first read by this author, even though it should have been my first, what can I say, I follow the beat of my own drum. That and all the books in this series reads a stand-a-lones, but has reoccurring characters. Needless to say I knew how this story ended before I got to it, but it didn't ruin the magic. Instead I got to see how on my of fav power couples got their start. I love Claire, everything about here I love. In the other books I seen the aftermath of her finding herself, to see this side of her was not only a teat, but I got to knew her better as a character. As a bigger girl myself, (not always, my weight has always been up and down.. damn sweets) I'm currently own my weight lose journey, doing it right this time. I'm goal to be healthy, strong and happy. Reading this book has hit home with me, and in truth I wish I would have read it sooner. I connected with Claire, I know her struggles and damn some of things that went through he head.. I can relate. It's so real it makes me feel this book was written with personal experience, or researched so well no detail was spared. Not only was this book like a ride through my read, it was funny as hell. My god, I was laughing out loud. In truth, though the other books in this series do have humour in them, this book, topped that. Mixed with superb writing and story telling I can tell you this book is a 5 start all round. There is love very sweet brewing love story in there as well.. but I'm not going to get into that cause I know too much! But it's worth the read, you will be fan-girling over the man that steals her heart. So with that said, please take my super high recommendation that you will fall head over heals with this unique, heart lifting read. Happy Reading -E.A. Walsh

Fat Girl (Romance in Rehoboth Book 1) by K.L. Montgomery 5 Stars So, I read this after reading all of the other Rehoboth books because I am a backwards kind of person I guess...and it was ok to do that, I would have preferred to read them in order but I didn't so will have to just go with it :) This whole series very loosely intertwines by characters from all of the books popping in here and there all the way through, but they do not have to be read in order, each one could be considered a stand alone, but no matter how you do it, do yourself a favor and read them all. I loved this book but that's no surprise because this author is like AMAZING and I don't even have to read a synopsis or look at a book cover to know that it's just automatic..If her name is on it...I read it! This one touched me in a completely different way then the rest...Connecting to the main character was simple as there were times in my life I was in a position that I felt like all of the words and feelings in this book were my own. I found myself getting so angry at Claire and just wanting to slap her, but on the other hand I really felt like she was very strong and confident in who she was even when she wasn't happy with how she looked. I really loved how this story was told and how real everything felt. I appreciated the building of friendships and I especially liked that there was no love at first site, I really truly never got a feel for what might happen and with who till the very end, and this was different...Normally it is very apparent what will happen and who it will happen with. I laughed out loud many times throughout as well...Her comebacks to messages received cracked me up. I loved it, and would highly recommend it and will. Many thanks to this author for giving me all the feels, even those I am no longer comfortable with and writing a story that was not only very real but was so easy to connect with.

Claire is the “fat girl”, but the book is surprisingly accepting and not fat-shaming. Claire is funny and sarcastic, and while her weight goes up and down I got the feeling that she would accept herself while large if only society didn't put so much pressure on being thin. She joins a dating agency (like Match dot com) and writes about her adventures on her blog (which has a lot of followers). The various men she meets are well written and funny, and the secondary characters were very well done—especially her mother, who constantly belittles her, and her “perfect” sister who has done everything in her life right. The book was an entertaining read, and had a satisfying ending. I enjoyed it enough to want to read the author's other books.

This author desctibes her struggle with being overweight, with dating, and with her mother issues in a witty way. I laughed out loud more than once. Shes down to earth and you can easily relate to her. I highly recommend.

Claire Sterling is someone anyone will be able to identify with. Funny, witty, and totally real with her emotions, the reader will click with her and her story immediately. Highly recommended.

This book is more than a story about one women's struggle with being over weight. It touches on aspects that can relate to single mothers, divorcees, daughters, people with weight concerns, and the list goes on. Claire is a very funny girl. There were many times that I laughed out loud and had to wipe tears of  laughter from my eyes. Though it's not a romance book it talks about the struggles with dating and being  "middle aged" as well as being over weight and struggling with self-efficacy issues. The book is a engaging and keeps the reader wanting more. I was both happy and sad to reach the end. Happy because K.L. Montgomery does an excellent job of wrapping up the story lines and sad because it was just simply, the end.

I loved this book. As someone who has struggled with my weight over the years, I can completely relate to Claire and her woes.  Claire is turning 40, and newly separated from her husband and living back in her childhood home- where all was NOT rosy for her growing up. That struggle is something else I can relate to. Parts of the book made me seriously laugh out loud, and at times I felt ashamed and angry for her situations with past demons, men, and family strife. I think Claire and "Fat Girl" are timely with all the bullying and fat shaming in society right now, and truly, this is a novel we can all relate to in one regard or another.  The writer's style was like sitting down for coffee with an old friend- very welcoming and easy to get into. I highly recommend this novel!  *I was granted an advance reader copy of this novel in exchange for my fair and honest review
