Dorothy Gale is fifteen years removed from Oz and the last of her friends to get married. But Dorothy’s long time boyfriend Peter is dragging his feet proposing. After a visit with Peter’s wacky divorced parents, Dorothy sees behind the curtain to a failed proposal in Peter’s past, making her worry he’ll never pop the question. Enter John Timmins, an old friend with a perfect family who’s ready to propose now, yet doesn’t get Dorothy’s heart racing. At a yellow brick crossroad, Dorothy is visited by the Tin Man, Scarecrow, and Lion to help her decide: wait it out with the man she loves, or settle with a man she’ll have to learn to love?
“The New Wizard Of Oz” is a humorous and romantic novel that combines L. Frank Baum and W.W. Denslow’s classic characters with elements of “Bridget Jones” and “Meet The Parents.”
The New Wizard of Oz is a light, cute, romp. Where would Dorothy be after she grows up? How would Dorothy act if she was in the 21st century, instead of the 20th century? This book looks at that. It’s a very light, fast read. It’s well written & edited, with only a couple of things that were worded funny (and maybe that’s just me, I’m not exactly an English teacher or a professional editor). The plot moves along at a good pace, and you are introduced to a set of characters that are each crazier than the next.
Overall, I enjoyed the book & it’s well worth the 99 cent price tag. My only real negative is I never fell in love with any of the characters, and I didn’t really feel a lot of chemistry between Dorothy and her love interest.
I received a review copy of this book for my kindle, from the author.
