Overview

Room for Love by Andrea Meyer

Jacquie Stuart has just turned thirty-two and she wants to do a major rewrite on her life. Her salary at a snarky film magazine barely covers her mortgage, her bratty sister has staked permanent claim to her couch, her best friend is in an obscenely happy marriage, and the only guy who really gets her is gay. Worst of all, she keeps falling for broke, self-involved commitment-phobes. Needing moonlighting money, Jacquie gets the idea of investigating a new dating trend—looking for Mr. Right in the "Roommate Wanted" ads. After a bunch of colorful near-misses that bring her into the slums of the East Village, the brownstones of Brooklyn, and the dingier digs of the Upper East Side, Jacquie thinks she's finally found the man she's been looking for and stuns her friends by moving out of her beloved apartment—and into his. Complications ensue when her live-in love reveals some alarming imperfections, the irresistible artist who dumped her wants her back… and what is up with the mystery man living in the charming one-bedroom she left behind? Jacquie has been looking for love in other people's homes all over town, but could the key to her happiness lie right under her very own roof?

This book is so much fun. Keeps you wondering what will happen next and flipping the pages so you can find out. I certainly hope she has more titles in the pipeline. Very fun.

This was one of the most disappointing books I've ever read. Reading the summary, the book has excellent potential. But the main character, Jacquie is my opinion of one of the more pathetic women in fiction. The story itself wasn't horrible, but Jacquie going from 'relationship' (which was really HER idea of a relationship after having sex with someone - because according to Meyer, having sex with someone equals a relationship) to 'relationship.' I felt the plot really went no where, had an anticlimactic resolution, making it a struggle to keep reading. There are so many other chick lit books out there with admirable characters despite being trapped in a genre that so many criticize as fluff.

Jacquie Stuart's tone is hip, bubbly and brainy as she searches for her ideal man under the guise of apartment hunting. But, secretly, there is an undercurrent of panic--will she find love, will she find a home and a hearth? A professional urban woman courageously on the go, Jacquie finds sex in the city but longs for true and lasting love. She will find it, but only after a 'burn out,' only after she confronts in herself what is truly important. Andrea Meyer is telling us a story that will resonate with many young professional women, for Jacquie is an archetype and mirror for t female questers in search of what they secretly value. A fun read that also provokes thoughtfulness after the last page is turned!
