Celia Bonaduce's books are hysterically funny and insightful - although I don't know why they are considered "romances". I have to admit I would not have read the first book (The Merchant of Venice Beach) if a friend hadn't SWORN I would like it. I loved it - as I have the other two book in the VENICE BEACH ROMANCE series. The third book, MUCH ADO ABOUT MOTHER is possibly my favorite - and again, very light on the romances of the three main characters (there is some romance, but not enough, in m ...more

This was a fun and quirky romantic comedy read. The plot was enjoyable and even though this is part of a series I felt that this could be a standalone. The characters that the author brought in where funny and fit perfectly together and I felt that I could relate on how the dog got treated because I am an animal lover. You can see relationship that mother and one of daughter builds along the story and it is much needed when they are moved closer, even though the other one it has problems. What f ...more
