Blog Tour: Menopause to Matrimony by @shellyhickman #giveaway #review

Romantic Comedy
Date Published: November 2014

The sequel to Vegas to Varanasi catches up with Anna and Kiran a couple of years after the event that brought the once “ugly duckling” high school acquaintances together. But will their romance continue to flourish in the face of a whole new set of insecurities brought on by middle age?
First, there’s Kiran, who has an unexpected health scare. While his doctors assure no permanent damage has been done, there seems to have been some damage to his personality, as the normally respectful and reserved Kiran begins behaving erratically and overtly. Anna wants to hope that this is temporary, sparked by the visit of Kiran’s womanizing, free-spirited cousin, Seth. But is this just the midlife Kiran surfacing?
Anna has midlife issues of her own. Now forty-eight, she’s navigating the onset of perimenopause and all the delights that come with it, from facial hair to mood swings to body temperature issues. On top of that, her two-year-old granddaughter is starting to show signs of a behavior disorder, bringing with it a whole other level of stress and worry.
Will Anna and Kiran finally find their happily ever after? Or end up stuck in a midlife mess in this romantic comedy of accepting change, and “the change.”



Anna found her love, now what happnes after? Such a great idea to give us more of Anna and Kiran and the new challenges that come after finding true love.

I love the quirkiness of this novel. Anna has such different obstacles to deal with than the typical romance novel. I love that the author is focusing on someone older.

Definitely had its fair share of drama and twists along the way. I teared up a couple of times, but I laughed out loud plenty of times as well. There was a great balance.
