Amy is walking through life accepting her marriage for what it seems until she finds a note from her husband on the refrigerator door – he’s leaving her. She can’t envision not being married to him or to living alone and is confident she can make Wesley fall in love her again. While she is still reeling from the reality of Wesley’s note, she receives a call from the hospital. Wesley was in a terrible accident and is in a coma. Though the book deals with the reality of Amy’s situation and Wesley’s accident that occurred as he was driving away from her, there is a lot of laugh out loud humor, and it all begins when she meets Wesley’s doctor Mark. Amy enlists Mark’s help to teach her how to be attractive and sexy so that Wesley will wake up from his coma and realize the mistake he made in leaving her. When Mark agrees, the fun begins. In this character-driven story, the author paints Amy as someone who is searching for her own identity. She has always been there doing Wesley’s bidding and accepting their marriage as it was – virtually platonic. Wesley’s departure and his accident, force Amy to take stock of herself. From the first, I despised Wesley, but because he’s in a coma your knowledge of him is second hand until much later in the book. However, you will learn enough upfront to dislike him instantly. Mark is definitely swoon-worthy but has his own problems to overcome. As the handsome doctor who sleeps with someone different every night, can he convince Amy he’s the one for her? Dove did a wonderful job of fleshing out the characters. Amy was complex. She was sheltered and unsure of herself, but with the help of other characters, she became strong and self-assured. The storyline was believable and filled with fresh humor. A fast-paced story, I read it in one sitting. Waking Amy is one of those books you can’t put down. It is contemporary romance, chick-lit, and comedy rolled into one. If you enjoy any of these genre’s you will enjoy reading Waking Amy. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

To be honest I almost set this book aside.... it took me a while to get into the groove of it. But I am so glad I stuck with it. This is a book about so many things, second chances, taking leaps of faith, finding true love, but I think the most important one is to always be true to yourself. Don't let others dictate who you are & what your life will be. Great read & I am looking forward to what happens next for Amy. This was the first book in a three part series.
