I almost didn't finish this but was glad I persevered as it was one of the loveliest books I have read. ( )

Narrated by Alma Cuervo and Jennifer Ikeda. Aughhhhh! Cornelia does way too much navel-gazing and is the most annoying character ever. Jennifer Ikeda voiced Cornelia's parts and very effectively made me gag at Cornelia's most aggravating "you know what I mean?" observations. I only hung with the torture to see what becomes of Clare's bipolar mother, and by then, just finished the damn thing. Plus you can hear Alma Cuervo's tongue unstick whenever she takes a breath. I had to adjust the treble to make it less obvious! ( )

I really enjoyed this novel and read the sequel, but it's not so well done that Id give it a five. I read it as a lighter read. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0452287898, Paperback)

When Martin Grace enters the hip Philadelphia coffee shop Cornelia Brown manages, her life changes forever. But little does she know that her newfound love is only the harbinger of greater changes to come. Meanwhile, across town, Clare Hobbs—eleven years old and abandoned by her erratic mother—goes looking for her lost father. She crosses paths with Cornelia while meeting with him at the café, and the two women form an improbable friendship that carries them through the unpredictable currents of love and life.

Love Walked In, the first novel by award-winning poet Marisa de los Santos, is bursting with keen insight and beautifully rendered prose. Invoking classic movies to illuminate the mystery and wonder of love in all its permutations, Love Walked In is an uplifting debut that marks the entrance of an enchanting literary voice.

Thirty-one-year-old Cornelia Brown adores classic romantic films. Anything starring Jimmy Stewart or Cary Grant will do nicely, especially The Philadelphia Story. Unapologetically idealistic about love, Cornelia appears to catch the break of a lifetime when the dashing Martin Grace, her own personal Cary Grant, comes strolling into her life. But Cornelia's life truly changes one snowy day when she looks up to find troubled 11-year-old Clare Hobbes standing before her.… (more)
