This book let me down. I was hoping to like it more...granted it is considered "chick lit" I generally enjoy reading novels like this once in a while for various reasons. Not that I was expecting the next great American novel or anything, but here are a few things which turned me off from this book.
1) There was not much continuity between chapters, and sometimes even between paragraphs/sections within the chapter.
2) I felt like the autor was trying too hard to be witty/clever, and therefore most of the writing was of the inner thoughts of the main character, which I did not consider funny/amusing.
3) Yes, I realize one of the main purposes was for the main character to find a boyfriend/future husband when she moved to a new city to start a new life...but it was too much, and I thought she just threw herself at different boys and had like 4 things going on with each man. I knew which guy she was going to end up with..but when she did it didn't turn out to be what it was built up to be. I guess it was built up to have a sequel.

That being said, I did think that as I got toward the end of the book it got better, and I enjoyed it more than in the beginning. I also read the Nook version, which turned out to be annoying because the format was double spaced and you can't control that.

Julliet I agree...I did not like it at all. Not to be mean, but some authors need to rethink their career.
