Just Add Spice


Written by Carol E. Wyer



Escape from reality comes in patent-leather Prada kneeboots

Dawn Ellis needs to escape from her painfully dull existence. Her unemployed husband spends all day complaining about life, moping around, or fixing lawnmowers on her kitchen table. The local writing class proves to be an adequate distraction with its eccentric collection of wannabe authors and, of course, the enigmatic Jason, who soon shows a romantic interest in her.

Dawn pours her inner frustrations into her first novel about the extraordinary exploits of Cinnamon Knight, an avenging angel -- a woman who doesn't believe in following the rules. Cinnamon is ruthless and wanton, inflicting suffering on any man who warrants it. Little does Dawn realise that soon the line between reality and fiction will blur. Her own life will be transformed, and those close to her will pay the price. Find out what happens in Just Add Spice by best-selling author Carol E Wyer.

Praise for
Just Add Spice


In Just Add Spice, the author humorously and creatively addresses poignant issues including marriagge, infidelity, loss, guilt, anger, heartbreak, devistation, self-esteem, enlightenment and self-discovery yet managed to leave me feeling "warm & fuzzy," enlightened and inspired rather than depressed or suicidal. LOL



Reading fiction can be a way to put yourself in the life of someone unlike you as way of understanding others better. If a fictional character has similarities to you and you're prone to introspection, it might help you understand yourself better. Just Add Spice goes one layer deeper. A fictional character who creates another fictional character, and it helps working through her own issues. It's not as convoluted as I make it sound.

Our protagonist Dawn is bored with life and, if we're completely honest, a touch boring herself. But aspiring author Dawn's work-in-progress has a kick ass heroine, Cinnamon. As Dawn's novel progresses the line between the two layers of fiction slowly blurs. Not just a clever idea, but a fun and entertaining read.



I have read & loved everything that Carol Wyer has written & this is my favorite so far. I enjoyed meeting her dual protagonists & their sometimes opposing views of life. I kept thinking I would put the book down for a while & go have something to eat, but each time I thought, "I'll just read another chapter or two"--& I did! I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. Good job, Ms. Wyer--I'm looking forward to your next book!!
