My review of How Hard Can it Be? by Robyn Peterman

What happens when an accountant decides to grab life by the horns and try something new? Apparently a pirate named Dave, a lot of pastel fleece, and blackmail--just to start with. . .
Visualize and succeed, Oprah said. I was sure as hell trying, even if my campaign to score a job as the local weather girl had ended in a restraining order. Okay, TV was not my strength. But a lack of talent has never stopped me before. Which is why I've embarked on a writing career. I mean, how hard can it be to come up with a sexy romance?
Leave it to me to wind up in a group of porno writing grannies who discuss sex toys and apple cobbler in the same breath. Also leave it to me to leak an outlandish plot idea to a bestselling author with the morals of a rabid squirrel. And only I could get arrested for a jewelry heist I didn't commit--by a hunky cop whose handcuffs just might tempt me to sign up for a life of crime. Maybe I've found my calling after all. . .

I have read some funny books, but I have never read a book that has me laughing so hard I have to stop reading because I can’t see through the tears. This book did it. Porno grannies, restraining orders, magical trolls, conjoined twins, a time traveling warlock vampire, and some plastic surgery gone horribly wrong. And Poor Rena ends up smack dab in the middle of crazy town. Well, technically she was already half way there, but walking into that writing class that fateful day got her the rest of the way. Now she has to write the worst book ever to end the career of the most hideous woman and save all her friends from her evil clutches. Bwahaha…
And if that isn’t enough crazy for you, she has to deal with her cray cray family, hormonal pregnant sister and try to get the attention of the hottest assed man she has ever met. Whew, it makes me tired just thinking about it.
I already knew that I loved Robyn Peterman from her paranormal book called Fashionably Dead, but I was a teensy bit reluctant to read this one because I usually like the paranormal books better. If you have the same concern you just take that doubt, squash it down, throw it in a box and lock it away. You will love this book! There are so many reasons this book is funny and sweet and totally entertaining. You will just have to read it for yourself. Be warned: if you pee easily you’ll need some depends when you read this.
5 fabulously funny stars!!

Robyn Peterman writes because the people inside her head won't leave her alone until she gives them life on paper. Her addictions include laughing really hard with friends, shoes (the expensive kind), Target, Coke with extra ice in a styrofoam cup, bejeweled reading glasses, her kids, her super-hot hubby and collecting stray animals. A former professional actress with Broadway, film and T.V. credits, she now lives in the south with her family and too many animals to count.
Writing gives her peace and makes her whole, plus having a job where she can work in her underpants really appeals to her. You can check out Robyn's website at robynpeterman.com and also follow her on Twitter and Facebook. She loves to hear from her fans.
