I saw this book at the Book Thing and took it because it had "London" in the title....it wasn't until the last 1/4 of the book that you figure out why the book refers to London....and that was fine (though confusing!)....The inside cover states that this book is a very humorous read.....I do NOT agree. It was more of a deep think about book. It started as an awkward read....that I was hesitant to continue, but I am glad I continued perusing. I was much surprised and enjoyed her observation of falling apart relationships. The story is unrealistic...but really, is a book read for realism?

The story is about a girl who walks away from her fiance...and hides herself in a small Rhode Island town escaping NYC, her life....and reality. She is forced to go home for her brother's weekend and there she is confronted with her decisions as her brother struggles to decide if he should marry. Really...no comedy. The story has a good end...where she doesn't 100% rely on a guy to survive....

Read, but don't expect to laugh!
