Light weight book about Rebecca who is in over head in debt. She finally discovers something she is good at and turns her life around. fun read.

I would never have normally picked this up, but one of my novel-writing guidebooks uses it as an example, so I checked it out from the library.

It was fun, mostly believable, the pacing was interesting, and it totally followed the "beats" of Save the Cat! Writes a Novel.

Still it would not be my preferred cup of tea. After some dabbling in the genre, it seems that modern romance chick-lit is not really my thing. Unless there is some magical realism or cozy murder thrown in! LOL! ( )

is one star maybe harsh? ehhh, i think it is fine because it isn't like i'm raining on anyone's parade since it is 2021 and no one who liked this novel even remembers it.

why is this stuff always so empty? if a novel isn't genuinely funny (intentionally or otherwise), it won't be funny and light. i choose novels like this in the same way i choose to watch a syndicated network sitcom late at night--in defiance of everything i know about these products.

finally, i have read better descriptions of clothes in Sleepover Friends novels. ( )
