I started laughing from the minute this book took off. The author expertly uses an author's characters in two disparate novels she's trying to write, to help said author work through some emotional turmoil, and hopefully solve her issue of a verbally abusive relationship that she finds herself in.
The book characters - an 1800s damsel in distress and a modern-day machismo action hero are hilarious, quirky and keep the plot moving with their personalities. This novel was relatively short, and there was never a dull moment. I honestly would have liked to read a bit more about the "real-life" characters, and would have readily done so if the novel was a bit longer.
In the end, I fully enjoyed the ride!
