“I have several bad habits when it comes to books and reading. Owning and reading this fun novel actually encompasses two of my vices. First of all, I am a true believer in the idea that you can never have enough books. So even though I had three paperbacks and many Kindle books with me as I drove from Lititz, PA to Staunton, VA, I was not sure that I could survive. I was going to be on my own for two days. What if I finished everything?
Which brings me to the second vice. I can't pass a bookstore without going in to just look around. On my journey, I stopped at a mall in Martinsburg, WV. The mall had a Books-a-Million store. I don't have easy access to one of those anymore. This was a chance to see if these stores had changed.
So the only surprise to this adventure was I managed to leave the bookstore with only one book.
This romance was supposed to be my backup to all the other books I had with me. I had plenty to read and I am in the middle of several books. I could use my time to finish one of the other books I had schlepped on my trip. But of course, when I got to Staunton and was resting in my room, this book is what I started reading.
I had a good time with Andie, North, Alice and Carter. Their story was so full of holes that I couldn't think too much about what was happening. If I had the whole thing would have collapsed. In the meantime, I relaxed, laughed and forgot all about all the drama that had taken me to Staunton this week. Which is exactly what I needed.
If you haven't read Crusie before, I would suggest you start with Faking It or Welcome to Temptation. However, if you have read Crusie before and haven't read this, suspend your disbelief and sit down to a laugh out loud romance.
In the meantime, does anyone know of a 12 step program for recovering bibliophiles?”
