Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gretchen Griner is an underpaid, underappreciated photographer for the Austin (thats Texas) Grackle, part-time lover of Peter Overton Treadwell III (known as “Trout”), and major consumer of Cup O Soup. That is, until she meets Lizzie Potts—otherwise known as Viveca Lamoureaux, romance writer extraordinaire. Lizzie has a plan for Gretchens life—and it includes Lizzies brother Gus. But Gretchen has her own plan, and it does not feature a “wispy goon” named Gus. Of course, fate also has a plan for Gretchen, and it doesnt care what Gretchen wants. So Lizzie will give Gretchen Gus, Gus will give Gretchen the man of her dreams, and among this oddball cast of marvelous misfits, someone just may discover the secret to true romance.

Brooke Pratt, October 13, 2011 (view all comments by Brooke Pratt)
This was such a pleasure to read. The characters are quirky and engaging. They are also flawed in the best ways. These flaws only make them even more enjoyable to read about. As zany as all the characters are (Lizzy being the zaniest), you can't help but buy into their reality. Sarah Bird has a talent for creating unique personalities, that make you root for them, and miss them once the book is finished.
