"Hi," flashing my unique version of a coy smile.'"Hi," giving me a half hearted once-over before mentally dumping me in the reject pile.'

Kylie’s Review

E.M. Muller's Confessions of a Liberal Lover is poignantly funny from start to finish. Not just a story of finding the right guy, but of finding oneself.

After failing to live up to expectations one too many times, Maud leaves home at 19. She is thrust into the world of full time work, part times school, and one disastrous relationship after another. Which includes such enjoyable calamities as receiving a rifle instead of a ring, a delightfully disastrous wedding, and the most perf

I really did not think that I would like this book, but I did, which to me marks a wonderful author, one who make a genre that I generally do not enjoy, one that I really , really liked.

Alice grew up reading Harlequin type romance novels and decided at a very young age that Mr Right would be a handsome and virile man, and that she was determined to find him. The problem, she finds, is that all of the people that she is attracted to tend to be conservative Republicans, as opposed to her extremely

This is the tale of a young girl who reads too many romance novels and believes that the secret to happiness is to find the man of her dreams and she'll live happily ever after ............but she discovers that life is not perfect and it doesn't work out the way it does in romance novels.

We follow Maud as she makes mistakes in picking the wrong man (I'm sure most girls can identify with that!) for the wrong reasons.

The only friend she has is a toy gargoyle that she picked up at a fair, he was a

This is an enjoyable story, full of straight talk by Maud who tells it from her POV and pithy remarks from the gargoyle. The inanimate creature can be considered Maud’s conscience, or at least that part of herself really acknowledging the truth, as opposed to her conscious self who continues to search for the Golden Fleece of a mythical hunk appearing on so many book covers. It’s funny and entertaining and oh so disappointing as each time, Maud’s Mr. Right turns out to have clay feet, sometimes ...more

This is a very witty way to take stock of your life and just what makes and shapes you into who you are today, and the choices that you make based on that. The cast of characters that comes through on parade is just short of genius. I found myself laughing at many absurdities poor Maude went through and yet came out stronger for it all. So, if you’re looking for an off the wall read then grab your copy of Confessions of a Liberal Lover today.

This novel was right up my alley. Like most young women trying to find themselves, Alice breaks away from her father and goes out on her own. I can definitely relate to this story because I too wanted to live by my own rules so I left my parents house, only to find it was a little harder than I thought.
I love the fact that Alice’s relationships are so real to life, no one finds he perfect partner right away. It’s also so relatable because she goes through so many duds first. All in all this was

My first thought of this book is that it is just plain fun. I love the characters, and I know how Alice feels all too well. I was hooked on this book from the opening page, and the narrative style is absolutely perfect. This is the type of book that will make you smile as you are reading and one that is exceptionally difficult to put down. Honestly, this book hit all the right buttons for me and I’ll be eagerly looking out for others from the author.
