This book is about a prickly, cranky heroine who in the process of avoiding love ends up falling in love with her new neighbor at work. She documents her journey on a blog devoted (supposedly) to work and coworkers and all of their foibles.
I've read many, many Christian fiction books, and most of them are just too neat. The women are just too perfect, or too stereotypical, or too annoyingly nice. They always have surface level problems that only a relationship with Christ (combined with that of a handsome man) can solve. This book was incredibly refreshing because the heroine not only had flaws, but she embraced them and felt no cosmic desire to change. Parts of the story were a bit predictable (as is the case in virtually any love story) but still vibrantly told to give it a new feeling. It was a light, quick read that uplifted without preaching at the reader. It painted church life genuinely instead of glossing over any blemishes, which gave me some things to think about.
