BOOK TOUR: Afraid Of Her Shadow ( Rom-Com On The Edge #2) by Carol Maloney Scott



Forty something, self-proclaimed cougar, Rebecca is committed only to her cats and her career. Her veteran single girl lifestyle has been peaceful and happy – that is until she started dating age-appropriate Steve, an entomology professor with a sweet smile and demeanor to match. Who knew an insect scientist could be so appealing? 

The problem? Steve is a widower with baggage to spare. Memories of his late wife fill his home. Smiling photos and jars of bugs serve as constant reminders of Steve’s continued attachment to his dearly departed wife, Noreen, who shared his passion for creepy crawlies! 

Now that Rebecca is facing her commitment phobia by moving in with Steve, she is becoming more unhinged. Behaving more like her zany friends than her level-headed self, she burns her butt at the tanning salon, crashes on energy drinks, and even loses a hamster. Throw into the mix a few delusional relatives, a sarcastic teenager, and a fluffy dog who sheds a new dog every day, and Rebecca doesn’t recognize her old self. 

And if that isn’t enough to push her over the edge, her smokin’ hot ex returns, reminding her of a simpler time with a man who carries no more baggage than a wallet. 

Book 2 is a STANDALONE novel, as well as a continuation of the wacky and relatable saga of the ladies of Rom-Com on the Edge. 


Review: I enjoyed reading the first book in this series, There Are No Men, so I looked forward to reading more about the ladies in this book.  I was definitely NOT disappointed.  Rebecca is a little annoying at times, and made me want to shake her more than once, but that was just part of what made her so human and relatable. 


Rebecca has a lot of great lines in this book, and gets herself into some unusual situations. The people from the Meetup group are well-written supporting characters, as are their friends at the bar for trivia and Rebecca's co-workers. 

The author does a wonderful job of combining the romance and the comedy in this story. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys chick lit and/or romantic comedies.
