Book Review | Mr. Crotchety

Today I’m excited to share a review on Rich Amooi’s latest novel, Mr. Crotchety. As I mentioned earlier this week in my review of his novel Kissing Frogs, I absolutely love his writing and highly recommend his novels to romantic comedy lovers everywhere! Here’s another prime example of why you need to add his novels to your must-read list and why you’re missing out if you haven’t read his works yet!

Mr. Crotchety by Rich Amooi

Mr. CrotchetyPublished: October 2015

Book Blurb: Shoe store owner Roger Hudson has a chip on his shoulder the size of Mount Rushmore. Hiring real estate agent Sally Bright, the most-annoyingly positive woman ever, probably isn’t the smartest move but she’s the best. Her constantly bubbly nature gets under Roger’s skin but there’s an even bigger problem. She’s also getting into his heart. And don’t even get him started on her dynamite legs.

Roger doesn’t fool Sally one bit. She knows his crotchety act is as fake as her best friend’s Gucci bag. She’s dealt with his type before but selling his home is proving to be harder than she thought. Especially since she’s developing feelings for her handsome client. But just when things seem to be going in the right direction, Sally’s secret could destroy everything she worked so hard for.

My Review – Mr. Crotchety

Mr. Crotchety had me laughing from page one, which I’ve come to realize is a given with any Rich Amooi novel! Sally is a super bight and happy person, despite the many hardships life has thrown her way. Roger is a crotchety old man that lost his wife to cancer and walks around with a constant chip on his shoulder. They’ve both experienced unfortunate life situations but have responded in completely different ways. When an unwanted neighbor sets off to move in next door to Roger, the two are brought together in an unexpected way. Cue the almost constant laugh track that accompanied this novel in my head while reading it.

‘First impressions aren’t always the right ones and sometimes the heart can see what the eyes are missing.’

As much as I love reading chick-lit written by women, for women, it’s always refreshing to read chick-lit for women written by men. If you’ve never read any of Rich Amooi’s novels, you need to remedy that right now! His novels are always filled with love, laughter and hilarious roads to a happily ever after.

‘Happiness and love have no age limit.’

I absolutely loved this story. A classic Amooi romantic comedy that will have you laughing out loud the whole way through. Filled with tragedy, life and love. Throw in an unexpected attraction and a bit of dishonesty that could ruin everything and you’ve got a great recipe for disaster. I devoured this novel quickly and can’t wait for his next one!

5 stars for another hilarious Amooi romantic comedy!
