"Allyson R Abbott, a British Romance author, will make you laugh out loud at Marie's strong woman antics and straightforward ways, in this clean romantic comedy, with a little innuendo. The way she manipulates Richard, completely unaware of the boundaries of her neighbor's sexuality, is humorous and funny and sometimes cringe-worthy." Rachel
"This short story was a great little humorous read, with a big difference. It dispelled the normal love, lust and romance theory when looking for a relationship as Marie, the narrator decides at 59yrs old, she needs sex and fast…. Some very funny parts and easy to visualise scenes. I enjoyed the different approach and the typical English upper class characterizations of Marie". Erin
When Senior Project Manager, fifty-nine year old Marie, realizes that it's been way too long since having any kind of sexual relationship with anything other than her magic wand sex toy, she knows action is needed.
Using her professional training and organizational management skills, she sets about on a new project: Countdown to Love, using the forthcoming Valentine's Day as her deadline; hoping for some Valentines romance.
As an empathizer of being lonely, she also includes her lovely but quiet neighbor Richard into her project, since whom she assumes to have been his latest boyfirend has moved on. Marie is hoping to give his boring and lonely life a boost. Little does she know that fifty-one year old Richard also has his own project on the boards and she blithely ignores his world, while focusing on her mission to find them both dates / sex / love, in fact anything, before the Valentine Day deadline.
