Overview

Meredith Love thought her life was just fine. Fresh out of graduate school, she had a shiny new job in the medical office where she used to be a secretary. Sure, she didn't really like all her co-workers, and yes, her bosses still asked her to drop everything to send a fax. And, okay, she had an irritatingly successful best friend who was always telling Meredith that her life sucked. But Meredith was content with her quiet life in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Then Ben Abel, second year medical resident, appears on the scene, and Meredith realizes that what happiness could be. Suddenly, her life looks as miserable as her best friend always said and it's getting worse by the minute. Now Meredith, who's never been much of a superhero type, is going to have to learn how to fight for the life she wants instead of the life she's got. And even if she succeeds, a secret from her past could ruin everything.

After graduation, Julie did her fellowship at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota before moving to Omaha to work at a center for pediatric audiology. It was in Omaha that she discovered how hard dating is when you are an old thirty-something. She began writing about her horrible dates to amuse her single friends and make her married friends appreciate their husbands. The Truth About Dating is based on these experiences. Julie was introduced to her future husband by an acquaintance who, after reading a draft of The Truth About Dating, realized that she knew the perfect man for Julie. One blind date led to marriage less than a year later. They now have two children, ages 2 and 3. Julie continues to paint (juliechristensen.net) and write (julielivingthedream.blogspot.com). She is currently at work on her third novel, a mystery set in Brooklyn.

This is a great read. I was hooked from the beginning and couldn't wait to find out what would happen in this character's work environment (gripes about the office will be very relatable to some people), friendships and love life. The friendships that she has are rich and sometimes complicated--a very important part of her story. I thought her two friends were very funny--for different reasons. She has some social anxiety which at times is humorous and at times is cringe worthy, but you want her to make it through unscathed. As for the love life - well, there's a lot of lovin' going on, but of course it can't be an easy road to happiness. I laughed and shed a tear...highly recommended.

But this book kept me interested. Although it was slow-going at first, the characters' situations were realistically portrayed and that helped to draw me in.

Didn't care much for the main character at first, but as she grows, so does her likeability. Good character development of other main figures, too. I particularly enjoyed how descriptive the author was of the setting (Albuquerque)..definately took the book to a higher level.
