BOOK BLAST: MOM AND DAD’S MARTINIS by Jacelyn Cane Plus Giveaway!

Mom and Dad's Martinis Banner

About The BookPublication Date: June 17, 2019

Jacelyn Cane’s mom and dad liked their martinis dry: straight gin on the rocks with a dab of vermouth and a hint of water – and they liked them often. They also liked to party; they danced, socialized, and drank – they were good at all three. Sometimes this behaviour led to humorous situations – antics in the pool, at the club, the cottage or in the car, for example. Other times, however, the experiences were not so funny – family fights and times of neglect, trauma, and abuse. By weaving together a series of episodes that take the reader to light and dark places, author Jacelyn Cane tells a poignant cautionary tale for anyone affected by alcoholism and/or family struggles. The author is using a pseudonym and most of the names in the book have been changed to protect people’s identities. Mom and Dad’s Martinis: A Memoir is a great read for anyone who has experienced a childhood mixed with joy as well as sorrow. It is a story of love, acceptance, forgiveness, and hope.

  1. Thanks for hosting. I hope you check out this humorous and impactful book!
    “Mom and Dad’s Martini’s is a powerful and deeply honest memoir that opens the door for families to talk openly about the insidious impact that alcohol can have on every small and big moment in life. The book is chocked full of stories filled with shenanigans, music, nature and affluence and, of course, alcohol. Although trauma and pain are pervasive themes, deep love, commitment and the promise of healing are always present.
    A must read! Bravo Jacelyn Cane!” – Valerity, Goodreads Reviewer

    • You are most welcome, Monica!
      I was married to an alcoholic and could tell you a tale or two. Alcohol sure can do some severe damage. 🙁
      All the best with your book and in the future!
