Hi, there! Would YOU like to take a peek in my diary?
Wait, we haven't been introduced. My name is Fern, and by some wonderful stroke of good luck, I live in the beautiful, tropical Florida Keys.
My life is wacky, often wild, and always entertaining. From my love-hate relationship with the book, The Secret, to my encounters with cursing parrots and skittering crabs, the summations of my offbeat life will make you laugh right along with me.
It is a particularly exciting year because I finally meet the man of my dreams! Or is he?
This fast-paced story is an intimate look inside my life as I go all-in and hand over the keys to my diary. Go ahead...Take a PEEK!
Spend some time with the lady Kirkus Reviews calls 'fun, likable company.'

About the Author
Ann Omasta is a USA Today bestselling author.
Ann’s Top Ten list of likes, dislikes, and oddities:
- I despise whipped cream. There, I admitted it in writing. Let the ridiculing begin.
- Even though I have lived as far south as Key Largo, Florida, and as far north as Maine, I landed in the middle.
- If I don't make a conscious effort not to, I will drink nothing but tea morning, noon, and night. Hot tea, sweet tea, green tea––I love it all.
- There doesn't seem to be much in life that is better than coming home to a couple of big dogs who are overjoyed to see me. My other family members usually show significantly less enthusiasm about my return.
- Singing in my bestest, loudest voice does not make my family put on their happy faces. This includes the big, loving dogs referenced above.
- Yes, I am aware that bestest is not a word.
- Dorothy was right. There's no place like home.
- All of the numerous bottles in my shower must be lined up with their labels facing out. It makes me feel a little like Julia Roberts' mean husband from the movie Sleeping with the Enemy, but I can't seem to control this particular quirk.
- I love, love, love finding a great bargain!
- Did I mention that I hate whipped cream? It makes my stomach churn to look at it, touch it, smell it, or even think about it. Great––now I'm thinking about it. Ick!

Entertaining, quick read, but ends suddenly. I want to know what happens next. The next book in the series is about another character...Ugh!
What young girl hasn’t kept a diary or at least wanted to where she could write the “secrets” of her daily exploits away from the prying eyes of her friends, parents and especially a possible brother. While some used an old-fashioned school notebook, others had a real one with which locked. In Fern Mabel Burns’ case it had been a sequined one she got from her grandmother for her 12th birthday. It began became a true, loyal confident who would always be there to help her recall any event in the past. Ms. Omata allows her readers to gain access to this wonderful journey of a middle-aged woman who has just discovered the worst sign of aging any she could have possibly gotten - - that first gray hair. For Fern it couldn’t have happen on any other day, but on her 42nd birthday, the day she begins every year to start writing a new diary. And in this one she’s begins by reminiscing her younger days as well as introducing herself. I found this book to be a comedic contemporary romance novel of a woman experiencing all facets of life: love, dating, a guy never seeming to have time for her when she wants/needs it, secrets being kept, etc. As you read this book you must remember it’s not the kind of storyline you’ve become used in reading; it’s a diary. And like a diary it’s not just about the actual events Fern has experienced, but also how she actually felt about them, including her dreams, fears and ideas at various stages of my life. At times as I read a dated entry I, as you will, remember have shared the same experience sometime in my life; which is why I giving this book 5 STARS.
Funny but didnt like the ending
I enjoyed reading most of this book, but every so often the author threw things into the story line that left me feeling uncomfortable.
