This book took me forever to read, and ultimately I only finished it on account of the fact that I really, really, really wanted to have a Q book completed for the alphabet challenge. The premise is good--New York City girl hates her life and convinces her employer to foot the bill for her move to small town Kansas where she runs into a bunch of eccentric townsfolk and falls in love with local eccentric. And I guess, by and large, it was OK as chick lit, but that was the whole problem: it was just OK. Nothing to recommend it as even "good". Lucinda was "likeable enough", Faye was "unlikeable enough", Mason was "man enough", and so on. It was just enough to get you through to the end, but not enough to make you love it.

I won't read it again, for sure, but it was a fine read for the purpose.
