Overview

Lovesick by Alex Wellen

For Andy Altman it was love at first sight. Halloween, 1983: She was Princess Leia; he was Chewbacca. Determined to be more than star-crossed lovers, Andy vowed to do whatever it took to make Paige Day his bride, even if that meant dragging himself back to the small town of Crockett, California, and working for her father, Gregory, the local pharmacist and most demanding boss east of San Francisco.

Day’s Pharmacy is tight quarters, and for Andy and Gregory, the mixture is explosive. Unable to win Gregory over, Andy devises a surefire scheme to secure his blessing to marry Paige. But what Andy doesn’t realize is that the only way he’ll make it to the altar is if he protects his future father-in-law’s big secret. In so doing, he’ll have to fend off financial ruin, Paige’s aggressive ex-boyfriend, and an intimidating crime ring of geriatric gangsters. For young Andy, charting the path to true love will take sheer ingenuity.

Some love stories follow a straight line through predictable scenarios and conclude with a happily-ever-after ending. Ah, but you haven't read Lovesick yet, have you? This book really stands the traditional love story on its ear, and spins it around a few times for good measure. The characters are unique and unforgettable, and the plot line takes some truly unexpected turns. Partway through, the reader will be ambushed by a plot twist so surprising it will make you gasp. "OK," you'll think, "Now what? How on earth can these two ever get together and make it work?" Alex Wellen has written his characters to be big, bold, crazy, and - yes - lovable. They, in turn, reward the reader with a roller coaster ride through the emotional spectrum on the way to redemption for Andy and a fittingly offbeat ending.
