Life Over Easy
By Margo Candela

Reviewed by Zulmara Cline

In Margo Candela's second novel, we meet Natalya, Margo's second strong, complex Latina character, complete with a loud, loving family, a serious boyfriend, a successful catering business, and comadres who have her back.

When life throws her a curveball, Natalya has to decide how to pick up the pieces. She uses everything from lists, songs, exercise, transition men, and her comadres to get a handle on h
A slight twist on a typical "chick lit" novel. For a change, the main character is latina, so the family dynamic of growing up in that culture is intrinsic to the storyline. Besides that twist, however, you are faced with the general formula these novels tend to follow. Still, this one managed to have less of the self-pitying "woe is me, I'm a girl without a boy" feel, and more of the "I am woman, hear me roar...well...purr" as I stumble and fall, but pick myself up again and do it all over.

A fairly typical "chick lit" book.
I had a difficult time relating to the main character and the situations she found herself in. However, it was a relatively entertaining book and I would definitely consider reading this author again, even though I'm not a chick lit fan at all.

A quick fun read about how a hispanic single girl ends up learning that it's more important to find yourself first rather than a man; this of course only occurs after she juggles dating four men at once:)Thanks Leny!
really enjoyed this quick read. centres around a twenty something, Natalya, in her quest to find "Mr right" after her long term relationship ends - with amusing results
This book was easy reading and entertaining. If you want to read something light and fun this book was pretty good.
Cute, but just okay for me. A break-up/growth type book but very very light.
Finally gave up around page 80... just couldn't get into this book.
this book reminds me that life is a journey. worth reading.
