New before/after: "Before the Daisies Grow"


Today's before/after is Micki Street's comic romance, "Before the Daisies Grow," which, by the way, is free today at Amazon! Here's what we did together.

Before:
Toss the bloomers, get a bikini wax and slip into a thong: life begins at sixty-ish.

Dotty, Wilma and Nora accept Lucas’s invitation to holiday on the island of Brazzina, but have no idea of the dangers they face. Unbeknown to them, he is a drug baron with an ulterior motive.

A chance meeting with Major Milestone, a yummy gentleman, has Dotty’s hormones doing the tango. Sadly for her, he has to rebuff her amorous advances when he learns their holiday plans coincide with his covert military operation on the island. As duty comes first, his priorities are to capture Lucas, crack his cartel and destroy the island’s poppy plantations. To achieve his mission, he has to secretly provide protection for the women. What he doesn’t reckon on is Dotty’s discovery of his protection and her launching a harebrained escape plan that turns his well ordered plans into a circus. When truth prevails, red-faced Dotty schemes how to woo Milestone for her ulterior motives: failing which, her high-speed vibrator will have to suffice.

After:
Toss the bloomers, get a bikini wax and slip into a thong: life begins at sixty!

When sixty-something Dotty and her two friends accept an invitation to a holiday on a west African island, they have no idea their host Lucas is a drug lord using them as cover. Nor does Dotty have any idea that her new acquaintance, the delicious Major Ramsay Milestone, has an ulterior motive, too--he's there on a covert mission to break up Lucas's operation.

Covert or not, Dotty finds out and quickly gets her wires crossed. Even though the Major's making her hormones do the tango, she's convinced he's the bad guy. But in her harebrained attempts to "rescue" herself and her friends she makes things worse for everyone but Lucas. When she learns the truth she not only has to clean up her mess: she has to make it up to--and hopefully make out with--the Major, or be left alone with her trusty vibrator.
