Cook returns with another sparkling romantic comedy that's reminiscent of Must Love Dogs in all the right ways, but very much its own animalabout a relationship-challenged single woman, her quirky-to-put-it-mildly extended fam...more

This was a fast and light read. I rated it an "okay" because at times it seemed to be just going through the motions. It is past the "chick-lit" phase and seemed geared towards the hen-lit/mommy-lit readers which is great but it often failed to hold my interest.
Do you need a light read for the beach? Then this is the book for you.
Ginger Walsh is a 41-year-old single woman who aspires to not much of anything. She lives in a tiny apartment above her parents' garage where she attempts to make sea-glass jewelry. She has an almost boyfriend, a cat who is a better artist than she is, an older sister with age and control issues, and two very strange parents who play tug of war with taking stuff to the dump (mother) and bringing it back (father).
Then suddenly something happ...more
"Life's a bit of a beach these days for Ginger Walsh, who finds herself single at forty-one and back home living in the family FROG (Finished Room Over Garage) in the fictional town of Marshbury, Massachusetts. She's hoping for a more fulfilling life as a sea glass artist, but mostly she's babysitting for her sister's kids and sharing overnights with Noah, her sexy glassblower boyfriend with commitment issues and a dog that Ginger's cat isn't too crazy about.

Here's the thing- this book was about a 40 year old woman who was living in a FROG (furnished room over garage...or something like that). Maybe it's just because I'm only 22, married, and out of the house...I don't know. But I cannot imagine not being out of the house by forty. It's quite ridiculous to think that by 40 years old you don't have any semblance of a job or family. Usually it's about the struggle for or against o...more
I got this from B&N when they were having a free eBook promotion, so I would say the value was excellent! The characters were quirky and fun, and although the author gives us a good view into their personalities, I felt the physical descriptions were somewhat lacking. It might just be me, but I lik...more

41 year-old Ginger is a somewhat late blooming yet spunky jewelry maker who lives in her parent's upstair apartment (temporarily...). Ginger, who is dating Noah, a sexy yet immature glass blower, is called upon to be chaperon for her nephew Riley when he gets the part as an extra in a Jaws-like movie and is simultaneously helping her father talk her mother out of selling their house and dealing with her older sister Geri's dreaded 50th birthday.
I really, really liked this book. The char...more
