Perfect Beach Read!
If the summer tv show Love Connection is your fav, then this book will hit that same sweet spot. Also for fans of Bridget Jones, this laugh out loud detailing of a hapless first grade teacher’s love life is delicious from start to finish.
Rae is divorced and her two best friends, one planning her wedding and the other married with four kids, want to fix her up using a Tinder-like app. Rae is more interested in the male substitute teacher at her school even though he may already be attached.
The writing style is pure millennial with hashtags and texting acronyms so if you are older than the heroine’s mid-thirties, you might need to keep your phone close by to google things that will seem obvious once you read them on urbandictionary.com. Still it is kind of enjoyable to see how a completely different generation deals with the same problems affecting all generations.
One cautionary note, if you are on day 10 in AA, this book may not for you. As Rae says sarcastically to herself
Am I becoming an alcoholic? #probs
This isn’t Shakespeare but it is a great six hours of your time this summer.
I received this book in a Goodreads giveaway but that has not impacted my review.
