Book Blitz & Giveaway - Slightly Delayed and Somewhat Haphazard by Amber Laura

Slightly Delayed and Somewhat Haphazard
Author: Amber Laura
Publication Date: November 16th, 2023
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance

Book Description:
Miranda Monroe’s world just imploded. Not only did she just get dumped by her long-time boyfriend, but she got dumped in the most humiliatingly painful way imaginable. Very suddenly single, homeless, and heartbroken, she runs to the only person she knows will always be there for her.

Sam Church. Her best friend (and the man she’d once secretly been madly in love with).

Which is how she finds herself, emotionally spent and financially crippled, somehow agreeing to his outrageous offer: that she move into his guest bedroom. Temporarily, of course. Just until she gets back on her feet.

There’s only one problem. In the midst of mending her shattered heart, in the process of trying to find herself again (just who is Miranda Monroe?), her thoughts keep getting distracted, wandering in the most confusing and forbidden of ways…just down the hall from her.

Which is ludicrous. The most commitment-phobic person she’s ever met, Sam is off-limits to Miranda for all kinds of reasons. But mostly, because he’s her best friend—and she loves him too much to lose him. So why, suddenly, can’t she seem to stop fantasizing about him? Why can’t she stop hoping for something more?

Slightly Delayed and Somewhat Haphazard is a best-friends-to-lovers romantic comedy underscored with notes of healing fiction and the echoing sentiments of an adult coming-of-age novel.

This is a delightfully entertaining picture book that follows the adventures of Duke, a hound with a heart as big as his talents. The storytelling is engaging, and vivid illustrations bring Duke's character to life, making every page a joy to explore. While the book doesn't focus on a specific message, which is a preference of mine, it offers pure entertainment and encourages readers to embrace the joy of trying new things. Duke is a heartwarming and entertaining read for both children and adults.


I thoroughly enjoyed Duke. The book is a testament to the author's skill in creating a captivating story filled with charm and humour. Duke's endearing personality and zest for life had me smiling throughout. The illustrations not only add visual appeal but also capture the essence of Duke's character and his many talents. Despite the absence of a specific message, the sheer fun and entertainment value make Duke a winner in my book. I wholeheartedly recommend it for the entire family.
