Review: The Divorced but not dead workshop by Cece Osgood

untitled (17)The Divorced but not dead workshop by Cece Osgood

THE DIVORCED NOT DEAD WORKSHOP, a romantic comedy with a whopping side dish of chick lit, is a hilarious and touching look at re-entering the dating world after divorce.

Meet Dorsey Bing. She’s been divorced for five years and was recently dumped by her mega-hot Brit boyfriend, Theo. Smart, funny and a wee bit angsty, Dorsey brainstorms about a dating workshop for divorced men. Too bad she’s an idea person with zero follow-through.

That all changes when her best friend Pilar, a feisty go-getter, opts to set up the workshop with herself in charge and Dorsey as her “go-fer.” But do things ever really work out as planned. No. No, they don’t.

A startling mishap, rebellious workshop attendees and the arrival of handsome but wily Finn Woodall soon send things topsy-turvy for Dorsey. Even more trouble arises with the unexpected re-appearance of Theo. Will Dorsey want him back or is she smitten with Finn who could possibly be a back-stabbing rat bastard? And with everything that’s happened in the workshop will Dorsey face her biggest challenge to win the love, and life, she’s always desired?”


Divorced and not dead workshop is such a hilarious novel about modern relationships. Dorsey is laid off in a corporate downsizing and starts her own dream workshop.; with some teething problems and a lot of help from Pilar.

I found the book to be uplifting because it didn’t extol “finding another fish” but was about building yourself up and becoming the person you want and can be.

Some times true love does not conqueror all and the knight in shining armour never shows up, and you have to make your own dreams come true.

This book is about reality and picking yourself up and rebuilding your life.

Divorced but not dead workshop, is such a refreshing witty read that I urge every woman who has suffered a heart break or had to start their life over, to read.
