Nicole's rating: 4 of 5 stars
This may story might only be 55 pages long give or take but Mickey Corrigan manages to pack a hefty punch of hilarity and wit into that short space. It was such a different story to read, a story where I wasn’t entirely sure I liked or could connect to Theresa our self-proclaimed vodka warrior for reasons I won’t go into since it’s a short story and would probably detract from the enjoyment of reading this for yourself but suffice to say by the end of it I pitied her, I disliked her, I envied her and I bloomin’ loved her, all at the same time. She’s brutally honest, loves a drink thanks to her Celtic heritage and her life by all appearances seems to be circling the drain.
Vario, our gorgeous alpha gym warrior with a penchant for hot-tubbing with confectionery named strippers enters the fray and the chaos of Theresa’s life and that is where things get not only pee-your-pants funny for the reader but life altering for our perpetually sloshed heroine. Things always get worse before they get better and so goes the tale of Theresa and Vario.
A lovely light read that was well written from Theresa’s point of view. She’s candid, often pessimistic, but she is so refreshing and sincere. Lovely ending.
