Hot Flash Book Tour and Giveaway

hot flash
What's the recipe for a happy marriage?

That's what chef Jill Morgan Storm wants to know, and according to responses to the "Marriage Satisfaction Surveys" she and her closest friends cooked up, the answer is to marry a traveling salesman who is rarely home.

And Jill certainly deserves some happiness, after everything she's been going through. Her teen-aged son, who only speaks to her in French, needs college tuition. Her crazy mother is determined to find her a man—and only brings her unsuitable ones. A pesky schoolteacher keeps annoyingly trying to fix her life. Her sous chef job is in jeopardy, and, most aggravating of all, her ex-boyfriend has absconded with her favorite skillet.

What's a single mom to do?

Faced with the answers to her surveys, she sets off to find the traveling salesman who can share her dreams. Along the way, can she find herself and a man who will claim her heart?

"Witty dialogue and wickedly funny characterizations make Kathy Carmichael’s Hot Flash a jewel among romantic comedies. Great fun!"
~ Eve Gaddy, Harlequin Superromance author

"Hot Flash is a keeper! It has heart, and I’m going to read it again. And again. Wonderfully well done! 
~ Kay James, Romance Reader at Heart

"I have never laughed or cried so hard as I have with this truly wonderful book!" 
 —Kathy Boswell, managing editor, The Best Reviews

"I highly recommend Hot Flash to anyone who loves to read romance. You will not be disappointed." —Romance Junkies


Jill just can’t seem to get her love life together. Her ex-husband changed genders, and her ex-boyfriend won’t return her favorite skillet. Needing fast cash to send her son to college, she devises a plan to marry a traveling salesman. She figures he would have money, and not be around to cramp her style. But her plan begins to backfire as each candidate falls short of her expectations. Then throw in her son’s former third grade teacher who continuously shows up at the most inopportune moments, and you have a recipe for disaster.

The slapstick comedy had me laughing from cover to cover. You can’t help but love each of these characters. There were so many memorable phrases in this story, it can’t help but be unforgettable. This is the second book by this author that I have read, and I loved both, but this one is definitely my favorite so far.
