    Somewhere between 3.5 and 4. It was a rocky start, and at the beginning I seriously considered DNFing this because of where Zoe starts as a character. I decided to give her until 10% to get her shit together and I'm very glad I did. It's a balancing act, creating room for a characte...

    I loved you, book! I loved you! This was such a sweet and wonderful and great story that made me all awwww and grin stupidly and stuff. You'd think it would be your typical millionaire CEO story, but it's so much more than that. I loved Zoe! Loved her! She was such a great fem...

    This was a cute book. It was a light and humorous chick lit sort of romance. I laughed out loud in a couple of places. The story took place in Australia and the feel for place was well done. It was the story of a woman who breaks off her engagement with a shallow mama's boy and while t...

    4 stars Let me start by saying I love Suzanne Carroll's writing, she has a way of bringing the words to life and touching your soul. You will either love Zoe or find her annoying, I loved her. I couldn't help but connect with her as I saw so much of myself in her. Zoe was scared ...

    Suzanne Carroll's debut novel, Over the Edge is a fun, quick read. Having first-person access to Zoe's (Our Heroine) head, we get a strong sense of who she is as the story begins. She's got good friends, a great relationship with her mother, and a solid job. She's also got a fianc?...

    4.5 stars This novel is quite different from so many other chick-lit romances out there. I can't even begin to explain why I liked it so much. There are no sex scenes. In fact, there's no kissing. And like another reviewer mentioned, there's no cheesiness factor to it - except a hin...

    I just loved this book! I was slogging through my kindle hoping to find something new to read (been in a bit of a slump) when I came across this... I don't even remember buying it, must have been an impulse buy... the cover is uggg but It reminds me a lot of the earlier Kristan Higgin...

    I loved this book! Over the Edge is a humours, laugh out loud, feel good back that leaves you feeling warm and as though you?ve just caught up with an old friend. It?s the perfect blend of light entertainment mixed with the more complex issue of what it takes to find oneself an...

    Please don't let the cover of the book stop you from reading this book. I am a self-professed cover slut, so take it from me, this book is worth overlooking the cover. Now to the review. Zoe is stressed out about her wedding. She feels like she's the star of a circus where her mo...

    This review is also available on My Fiction Nook. It's a rare book that is romantic, funny and swoony-sweet all at once. This was one of them. And it didn't need any full-blown steamy scenes to deliver exactly what I was looking for in a romance. The setting of this novel is Syd...

    Available today! Up front, I read portions of this lovely book while it was being written. I laughed many times! Reading it now, with those scenes connected in Zoe's life, was a joy. Ms. Carroll gave Zoe such a humorous voice. I loved the "Drunken Zoe" moments. I agree with her, ...

    Thanks to NetGalley for allowing me to read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. First - I LOVED this book. I can't really put my finger exactly on what made it so special, but I couldn't put it down and when it was over, I had this huge smile on my face. The sto...

    While I am very familiar with Suzanne's unpublished work, aka fan fiction, I was very excited to be given a copy of her first published novel. This may come across as another "CEO falls for the unaware PA", that's not necessarily true in this sweet romantic story. ZoŽ pretty mu...

    Whenever I read a book by an author I'm not familiar with, I always google them or look up their Goodreads page. I like to know what other books they've published, if the book I have my eye on is the beginning of a series and what kind of reviews are out there. When I found Suzanne Car...

    I had the pleasure of reviewing this book, and I am glad that I asked for it. I really enjoyed the story for several reasons. First, being Canadian with a secret love for anything Australian, it was nice to read a book from that part of the world. The story itself was very sweet - I lo...

    **3.5 stars** I have to admit, I was nervous when I started this book. An indie chick-lit book with a low budget cover? Odds are that this book was going to be a poorly edited mess. However, I was pleasantly surprised by this book. Zoe is at odds with her controlling future moth...

    I really enjoyed this story! So well written and not always the expected, which totally worked for me in this one. Zoe Harper is engaged to a real mamma's boy. (Ew) The wedding is 6 weeks away and mamma in law to be is a DRAGON. OMG. She has totally hijacked the wedding preparation...

    Given the wide spectrum that the word Romance can be used to describe a book these days, I wasn?t sure what to expect when I started reading Over the Edge. What starts off with a woman overwhelmed by the fiasco being forced on her, becomes a heart-warming story of finding and redisco...

    A friend of mine recommended Over the Edge aaages ago, so you know it's good enough for word of mouth to have done its job. But while I read this, I couldn't help but think the writer had more in her! That may seem like a slight, but I mean it as a compliment. The writing in this i...
