Finished it. Engaging in the beginning, but everything tied up much too neatly. Characters predictably snarky then "warming your heart" as they turn to heroic. Feel the author pandering to the librarian/independent bookstore audience. Shelved under c...more

" Thank you to the publisher for an advance reading copy.

I shouldn't even review this. A book marketed as "heartwarming" is never for me. But I'm going to anyway. I know that this is going to really appeal to book groups and librarians and bookstore... " Read more of this review »

" I’m starting to think I’m the only bibliophile on earth who didn’t care for this book. After everything I’d read about it, I didn’t think it could possibly fail to be fantastic. For me, though, it tips way too far into chick lit and YA territory,... " Read more of this review »

An English high school teacher at a Catholic school in England recommended this as he teaches it to his classes. I found it diverting, although probably not as funny as the author was hoping.
