Waking Up in the Land of Glitter | By Kathy Cano-Murillo

This novel is pure brain candy. I am not a ‘crafter’ but can appreciate those who are and this novel was entertaining. A good beach read with a romantic twist. The book focuses on two ladies both wanting love, security and success. One is trying to achieve it in the world of media whilst the other in art. I did find it interesting that we, on the whole, tend to knock or make fun of that which we don’t really understand – whether it be crafting or climbing the career ladder of success. We are way too quick to condemn and that is not a great attribute no matter how you look at it. Star is helping with her family business, which is a successful Mexican restaurant, whilst Chloe is a local reporter for a news channel. They end up on the same team putting together centerpieces for a national craft show. I suppose working on crafts is similar to a book club in that you chat about all the things going on in your life. I am obviously not well acquainted with the craft side but love book clubs. Anyway the two women have already decided that there is no love lost between them but carry on with the project as it will ultimately bring them the chief end they require – recognition, success etc. As you can only imagine disaster strikes many times as well as some obstacles are overcome. A feel good story that is a quick and easy read.
