Kiltie Jackson: Radio HaHa

Today I’m taking part in the blog tour for Radio HaHa. My review is written with thanks to Zoe O’Farrell and the team at SpellBound Books for inviting me on the blog tour and for my copy of the book.

Blurb:

Will a blind date on the radio blossom into romance on the airwaves ?

DJ Marky Sparks is hanging onto his career by a thread – he needs a miracle.
Steven Byrne has an invite to his brother’s “Couples Only” party – he needs a date.
Matilda ‘Mats’ Davidson has dumped her cheating boyfriend – she doesn’t need anything.

A drunken email brings these three strangers together and changes their lives in ways they couldn’t have foreseen.


Mats Davidson has just dumped her cheating boyfriend so is less than impressed to find herself, thanks to her interfering best friend, taking part in a radio version of Blind Date barely two hours later.

Steven Byrne can’t attend his brother’s “Couples Only” engagement party without a date and is horrified to find he’s sent a drunken email to a local radio station asking for their help in finding one.

DJ Marky Sparks seizes the opportunity to add a different element to his morning breakfast show and in doing so, brings Mats and Steven together.

While the date is a success, there are no plans to meet again but DJ Sparks has other ideas. He formats a plan to bring Mats and Steven together while also, hopefully, saving his radio station and his career.

A story of adventure, courage, tears and a whole lot of love!

Review:

I’m not your typical Rom-com reader but I loved Radio HaHa. It has a really interesting premise and I couldn’t wait to see what the different dates would bring. There’s plenty of room for some humour, some of it is “laugh out loud” and some of it is more subtle, but I really enjoyed spending time with these characters and I quickly became immersed in their lives. 

The three central characters, Mats, Steven and Marky Sparks all have interesting back stories and I appreciate that Jackson has spent time building these stories so that we can get to know the characters and emotionally connect with them. Through this, Jackson addresses several emotional themes and there are a few moments in the novel that are very poignant. 

Radio HaHa is really well plotted and I was pleased that it didn’t always go in the direction I expected. There were times I wanted to shake my Kindle in frustration and I was often shouting to an empty room!

I would love to read a sequel to Radio HaHa, but failing that, I can’t wait to see what the author does next! 

Radio HaHa is available from Amazon.
