I Kill Me: Tales of A Jilted Hypochondriac by Tracy H. Tucker

3.5 STARS

*I was sent an ARC by the Author for an honest and unbiased review.*

This was a well written story about love, betrayal and how we surround ourselves with a self-protection shield and adopt specific coping mechanisms to guard ourselves from being hurt by others. How we place emphasis on something else, no matter how irrational, in order to ignore the reality of what we should be dealing with. It had me laughing out loud at times and cringing the next.

This story is about Christine, who ends up in a situation beyond her control and finds herself a single Mum of two girls going through a divorce and having to adjust to life as a single woman in her forties. The way she deals with avoiding her broken heart and re-discovering herself and her ability to cope is by inventing questionably illnesses like cancer, AIDS and MS just to name a few, which she is convinced she is dying from. Her struggles and emotional issues came across very real and were understandable although dying from all of the above became very time consuming. I felt so sorry for Christine at times but she had me in stitches too. Her close friends deserved a medal for the “patience of a saint”!

Her journey was a page turner and I enjoyed it very much.
