Super cute and fun for a summer book club read! The paperback contains book club discussion questions at the end too.

By the Book is about college professor, Anne Corey, who while working towards tenure learns that her new university president is her ex-fiance from a decade ago. Of course he is successful and looking dreamy as ever while Anne is still working towards job security and can't even pay her overdue library fees. Oh, and there is also a handsome, charming new professor who is wooing Anne. What the heck is she going to do? Well, read and find out.

I took this book with me on vacation and its a perfect beach/pool read. For 362 pages, it was a quick read: I whipped through it in two days.

It's a retelling of sorts of Jane Austen's Persuasion. Having not read Persuasion, I just went into the story looking to be entertained. And the book did just that. It was adorable, I quite liked it. It's one of those stories that brightens your mood: perfect to read on a sunny day (or those rainy/snowy days where you are looking for something to lighten your mood).
