Chasing Rainbows Book Review

Chasing Rainbows was a bittersweet tale of loss and love that I could definitely identify with. Bernie is in a terrible spot, having just lost her father as well as having her husband leave her for someone else. I could feel her pain and the utter desolation that such a time in her life must have made her feel.

The messes she got herself in to, simply because she was overwhelmed and not thinking clearly were definitely things I could envision myself having to deal with. Despite it all though, she was a good friend to Diane and her daughter Ashley who also showed that true friends can be closer than family.

I really enjoyed this book as I found it to be a very realistic portrayal of what a life can be like at times. It made me laugh and even cry a little bit and I'm looking forward to reading more from this author!


A long time ago, in an elementary school far, far away, a very young Kathleen scribbled a story idea in her journal. Then she wrote another, and another. She added several poems, the lyrics to a song or two, a love letter to David Cassidy, and so on and so on. While her early writings never saw the light of day, many of her later works did. And while she did not marry David Cassidy, Kathleen did marry her own Prince Charming. Together, they are raising one drama queen and one obedience-challenged border collie mix in a kingdom divided between suburban Philadelphia and the Jersey shore.

Kathleen is the RITA® nominated, RIO Award and two-time Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence winning author of fourteen novels of contemporary romance, romantic suspense and women’s fiction. Her additional honors include National Readers Choice, Holt Medallion, and Booksellers Best award nominations.

She divides her time between plotting her next book, bribing her little one to pick up her toys, and begging the dog to heel. Life is good. Very, very good.
