Here’s what Chick Lit blogger Victoria Brown has to say about Pebble Beach!
“Admittedly, when I started ‘The Adventures of Pebble Beach’ I was a little unsure whether it was my type of book. The erotic scene and language that gets this book started, was not my usual type of read. However, I’m so pleased I continued. Pebble Beach is a great character. Although I sometimes wanted to slap her, I couldn’t help but love her. She’s in a very vulnerable time in her life; she is in her mid-40s, recently divorced and single mum to two teenage boys. She is working so hard to make a career for herself but there seems to be obstacles at every turn. Pebble has to go through certain situations to make her realise what is happening in her life and how she can make the changes. Once she starts to realise this everything starts to fall into place.
I loved the way Barbara Berger has created a mixed-up character that many women could relate too. I love even more how she develops a storyline that would help many women move forward in their own lives. There are quotes and advice that have been integrated into the story, I think this has been very well done. I think Barbara has created a very interesting novel that not only relates to real-life but gives great advice on finding oneself.
I give this novel 5/5. For anyone who loves chick-lit that has meaning!”
Here’s what Mary Nale, editor of Attune Magazine, has to say about “The Adventures of Pebble Beach”:
“This is a woman’s story, no doubt about it. This is Barbara’s first novel and it’s so damned believable! Pebble’s inner dialog is the key to this book being a fantastic read.
Pebble could be you and she could be me.
Pebble lives in Copenhagen but she’s originally from the US, she has two sons and she’s recently divorced. She’s almost 45 and she’s struggling with the very same things every single woman has struggled with.”
Thanks Mary! I am thrilled to hear you enjoyed Pebble’s adventures so much!

Marie Als gave “The Adventures of Pebble Beach” 5 stars on Goodreads. She wrote:
“I just finished this very, very cool book (and I usually don’t say that about books).
I’ve read more than a few of the author’s books before and highly recommend them if you seek a “how to fix your life by fixing you” guide. But because the other books are very practical, but fun and accessible, I was curious to see how she’d do in the fiction genre. She did well indeed.
The story works, the characters are realistic and just as fucked up as you or me. It’s NOT a sermon it’s a story that has something to say. I literally just finished the book now, and all I can say is go get your own copy… You’ll be reading it again and again.
I already miss Pebble (main character), because she’s as lost as real people are but there’s hope without the cheesy over the top drama you usually get.

So what’s the book about? Well I like to say that it’s a book in which Chick Lit meets Self Help. Now why do I say this? Well because the book is a high-spirited tale of a newly divorced, 40-something woman named Pebble Beach with two teenage sons who is trying to take control of her life, her sex-crazed body, and her new relationships with men – while struggling to build a career in advertising in the big city. When she realizes how disastrous her relationships with men are and an unsavoury business scandal threatens to ruin her burgeoning career, our brave heroine decides to go to therapy. And so begins one modern woman’s journey of self-discovery. And that’s what the book is about – her outer journey and her inner journey. The men in her life and her career struggle. Her confusion and her adventures and her learning process.
I hope you will love Pebble Beach with all her quirkiness as much as I do!
