I was looking for something fun and light and that's what I got. The characters were fun and silly and the book is something you can read in an afternoon on the beach or a cross country flight as was the case with me. I had only two peeves and considering I love Meg Cabot,l they're small but worth noting.

1) The whole adding pets as characters thing. I found it a little distracting. I get that the premise is centered on the beloved pets of her neighbor, but there was a little too much focus on this. I just wanted to get to the romance most of the time.
2) I did not realize that the story was going to be told through a series of emails and text messages. It's an interesting concept, but way distracting. Helen Fielding pulled it off with Bridget Jones, but I had a hard time getting into the story with this kind of story telling.

All in all though, a fun read. But I think I'll stick to Cabot's books that are done in a narrative style.
