Kisses to Go is a fantastic follow-up to Irene's Peterson's debut novel, Glory Days. It's different, and outstandingly so. Glory Days is a women's fiction story with romantic elements while Kisses to Go is most definitely a romance. And it's a fantastic romance! As Abby says somewhere in the book, every girl dreams of growing up and becoming a princess. She just didn't think it could ever happen to her. Abigail Porter has the worst luck. With men. Occupations. Money. After seeing her long-time love with another women - and I mean WITH another woman - atop Abby's table, well! There's only one thing Abby can think to do about it! Without one backward thought, she takes the wonderful vacation for two that she'd pre-paid for - by herself. And what a vacation! A stay at the Earl of Wincott's ancestral estate along with being shown the sights of England! Wow. I about died when I realized Abby had actually undertaken this trip with only what she wore and a slinky black dress that was matched with heels that were 'held on by magic' to quote the earl. And what an earl! Oh my. Irene Peterson has given hunk a whole new meaning. The guy is gorgeous, and when she describes him in ancestral armor with a sword no less! With hair that grazes his shoulders and bare legs? Well! I was more than hooked! This earl starts out as Abby's unwelcoming seat partner aboard the flight to the UK, and ends up being every woman's dream man. Can a Yank who can cook crack this earl's priggish facade? oh my! Does she ever! From the opening sequence atop a transvestite's shoulders to the fantastic ending, you're going to enjoy every moment of Kisses To Go. I can't wait to see what Ms. Peterson dishes up next!

I got this book at a thrift store for like 50 cents and I thought just buy the cover and how cheap it was that it was going to be so unoriginal and borring, but I was so wrong. It is a great book that lets you escape into its fantasy. I just love Abby, her charachter was strong, sassy, and adventurous. I would have paid full price and then some for this book. I would recommend to all the chick lit lovers out there. A+Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
