It's a pleasure to read a book about women that's not angry or obsessed with shoes. Life a la Mode showed characters in search of love and more. It's sweet and funny--a very warm book!

Based on what was on the back of this book, I thought it was going to be an exciting page turner where you can't wait to see what exciting thing happens to Holly next. It was very slow moving and not a very fun read.

This was just an all out relaxing, funny and warm book. I couldn't put it down, but not because I was on the edge of my seat, but because it made me feel good. No dry spots, humor at every corner. Great book! Would definitely recommend.

I saw this book in the window of a Barnes & Noble in Greenwich Village and the cover caught me eye. I'd never heard of this author, but the story sounded cute. I'm so glad I bought this book! The story was cute and funny and sweet. Less sour than your usual chick-lit where man-hungry heroines are on the prowl. I'm a fan and hope Linda Lenhoff is working on a new book SOON!

Thirty years old Holly Phillips lives in Greenwich Village and works as a book production editor. Four years ago she divorced her husband Josh who remarried. Three years ago her father ran off with a cousin that no one heard of so he lives in Texas. Her sister Janie has been engaged five times, but never made it to I do and now number six has been hooked. Finally her mother is running off with her lover on an African safari.

At work her cubicle mate shy Tom has been coming on to her with his origami of animals gifts. However, Holly has doubts about a relationship especially in the office. Besides she is in now forced into bonding with her mom, her sis, and her best friend Maria but wonders why across the Hudson in Jersey and what topic should she choose in hosting shower six for Janie?

Though a lighthearted romp, LIFE A LA MODE works because of the humorous Holly who turns the plot into a very funny look at singles life in Manhattan. The story line will amuse the audience as Holly provides asides on everyone else even while she is forced into women binding and a potential cubicle romance. Readers will laugh loudly at the lead female¿s outlook on life¿s deprecating and embarrassing moments caused by friend and family.
