Leaning into the Curves--A book review

I recently had the opportunity to read a book entitled: Leaning into the Curves.
I was impressed with the humor in the book at the very beginning because let's face it when life throws you lemons, it is WAY better to laugh then to cry. ;)

Basically the book starts out when Molly's husband Hank, retires. He didn't really have any plans for retirement besides to just relax and explore his town and varying towns around him.
  Molly has plans of her own though. While she is trying to adjust to Hank being at home, he buys a motorcycle! You will laugh and cry when you read this book! This book is all about retirement and the unexpected twists life can throw at you and how Molly handles the sudden curves and twists in her life.

Don't take my word for it though!
Here's the blurb on the back of the book:

"Molly is happy with her life the way it is, taking the classes she loves and performing with the Fiddling Finleys. But everything changes when her husband, Hank, retires. She's still trying to adjust to this new phase of life when he brings home a Honda Gold Wing--even though he knows she hates motorcycles! Things go from bad to worse when he joins the Temple Riders Association, a "mormon motorcycle gang" that combines road trips with temple work.
  Faced with the prospect of being left behind when Hank rides with his new friends, Molly starts making some changes of her own."
  "Leaning into the Curves offers a delightful view of a little known group of faithful Latter Day Saints. Full of appealing characters and unexpected turns it gives a new twist to what life can be like after a "certain age"!"

There you have it my friends! I think this is a very delightful read for the summer!

Thanks for the review of Leaning into the Curves!

Nancy and I are glad you liked the humor. I think the older we get, the more we need to be able to laugh at what life tosses our way.
