This read is great fun!
I read this last fall and have been meaning ever since to review it. I don't ordinarily read lighthearted books in any genre! Maybe it's my early reader influence, growing up with a mom who introduced me to the classics. I fell in love with the dark writers, Tolstoy, Hawthorne, the Bronte sisters. But I had corresponded with Joan and read her blog and liked it so much, so wanted to try her fiction. I loved the description of Jane I'm-Still-Single-Jones. Who hasn't attended their high school reunion and not felt what Jane feels? Even successful, the high school beauty queen, no less, you still feel somehow inadequate--and there's always that guy, the one relationship that didn't end right. Jane's story captures every nuance of reunion doubt and trepidation. In fact every character in the story is so well defined, I felt warmed in their presence. Joan Reeves is one smart, professional writer who knows her genre inside and out and just how to serve it up with equal measures of snappy dialogue, humor and romantic delight. I loved this book and recommend it!
