Review: All My Restless Life to Live by Dee DeTarsio

All My Restless Life to Live by Dee DeTarsio 

Publication date: April 29th 2013
Genres: Adult, Romance

Award-winning author Dee DeTarsio combines life’s darker side with humor and tenderness in a wonderfully charming look at love and the afterlife.

Life is a soap opera, especially for Elle Miller, who is a TV producer. (Ellen dropped the “n” in her name in hopes of finding a better ending for herself.) When her laptop crashes, she borrows her dead dad’s computer and gets way more than she bargained for.

As Elle tries to save her career with a storyline featuring a trip through Atlantis, she takes a trip to the Emmys, and finds herself in the middle of a romance between a real doctor and a hunk who just plays one on TV. Friends, family, and clues from “the other side” all help Elle figure out the difference between living the good life . . .  and living a good life.

Funny, exciting and intriguing - this was a delightful read!
There was really nothing I didn't like about this book. It was well=paced, had a really interesting plotline, and held me captive throughout.
I enjoyed every second on the journey with Elle as she navigated the ups and downs of dating and falling in love, along with having to deal with a real eejit of a boss. (Although he was extremely entertaining!!)
The characters were all really well written and I loved the banter between them. Elle was quite a witty character, and her relationship with Adam gave me a good laugh. The things they came up with made me snort a few times, and I'm not a snorter!
There was also a serious side to this book but it was included in such a way that it didn't bog down the lightness of this story. I think we all wish to have some communication with our loved ones that have passed on, and I liked the mystery that went along with Elle and her father's laptop.  Was it really him? And. what was he trying to tell her?
If you're looking for a great read that will entertain and enthrall you, look no further!
Dee DeTarsio is a graduate of The Ohio State University and lives in southern California with her family. She did not teach herself to read at an early age or write stories by the time she was in kindergarten. She was still wetting the bed and playing in the can cupboard.
