#BLOGTOUR | Tales of the Countess – Cali Bird @calibird @BOTBSPublicity #amreading #bookblogger #bookpromo #bookreview

How can a woman so capable at work be so useless at getting a man?

Kennington, London, 1998

The Countess of Kennington awakes one morning after a heavy night and realises it all has to stop.

She has to stop drinking her problems away. She has to stop acting irresponsibly. And she has to stop obsessing over the MSL: the Man She Loves.

But things are often easier said than done, and when she discovers the MSL is attending a conference where she is presenting, she cannot hold back her burgeoning hopes.

In a Sex In the City meets Toy Story scenario, the Countess lives in an unusual household where her chief confidantes, known as the accessories, are a collection of beloved handbags, a beautiful sheepskin coat and her teddy bear who provide her with support and advice.

As the conference gets underway, the Countess tries hard to focus on work, but encouraged by the accessories, she cannot resist the draw of the MSL.

The bags might talk but this is no kids book…

Tales of the Countess is a highly original chicklit novel by British author Cali Bird, about the need to find happiness in yourself before you get your man.

Review:

I don’t read a ton of RomComs, but something about Tales of the Countess spoke to me. I’m super glad I read it because it is not like anything I’ve ever read. At first, I had my eyebrows raised – the bags and the teddy bear talk – but it ended up working really well, and I am glad I gave it a chance.

The Countess is an intriguing character. She comes off a bit ditzy at first, but she grows immensely. She has dreams and she is not afraid to be a strong woman when she needs to be.

There are surprises to be found in this novel. The plot and the characters are compelling. Overall, I really enjoyed it. I’m fond of the ideas in this novel and would recommend giving it a shot.

4/5☆

Cali is in her mid-fifties and lives in Bedfordshire. She was single until she was nearly forty and used to be the archetypal career girl, living in Central London and working in investment banking. One day, she had an epiphany, realised that she needed to honour her creative side and started writing. Since then, she had various side projects including running a life-coaching business, giving self-development talks and blogging about creativity at www.gentlecreative.com. She has practised Buddhism for over thirty years and is a self-confessed tree-hugger.

Cali has known her husband, Graham, since they were at school together. Although they once had a smooch when they were nineteen, they didn’t get back in contact for many years. Within a month of their first date, they realised they had found someone special in each other, but it was another few years before they were married at the tender age of forty-six. It’s never too late to find love!
