Review: For Better, For Worse


For Better, For Worse
by Carole Matthews
reviewed by Rian Montgomery
Buy From Amazon

For Better, For Worse is one of the funniest books I have EVER read. Filled with hilarious and endearing characters, and mad-cap and suspenseful plot twists, I highly recommend everyone read this book, whether you like chick lit or not. An absolute gem of a book, taking place in New York City and London.

A quick plot synopsis: Josie finds out her husband is cheating on her with a woman in his office, and she flees to NYC to her favorite cousin’s wedding. Continue reading Review: For Better, For Worse

Review: The Divorce Party


The Divorce Party
by Laura Dave
reviewed by Kelly Y. Smith, Guest reviewer
Buy From Amazon

Set in Montauk at the family home, Huntington Hall, The Divorce Party takes a look at the lives of two women, Gwyn Huntington and her (soon-to-be?) daughter-in-law, Maggie, as they each navigate the status of their respective relationships; Gwyn with husband Thomas and Maggie with Nate, Gwyn and Thomas’s son. Gwyn and Thomas are throwing themselves a Divorce Party, which, it appears, is the civilized thing to do when a marriage of thirty-some years runs its course and the couple have nothing but respect and admiration for one another. Maggie is invited to the party by Nate, which is the first time that Maggie will be meeting Gwyn and Thomas. Maggie thinks the occasion is a bit odd for a first time meeting but goes along with it.

Review: To Forgive, Divine


To Forgive, Divine
by Melissa Lea Leedom

There is nothing quite like old-fashioned and pure romance, especially when it happens in a book that is well written featuring likeable and charismatic characters. To Forgive, Divine by Melissa Leedom is such a book with these qualities. Chock full of endearing characters and set in rural Texas, To Forgive, Divine is a Christian “Chick Lit” book that should not be missed.

Holly is an English girl, running her own dating business “Girl Meets Boy” and treading water in her relationship with her fiancé, Nick. After breaking off their engagement, Holly decides to take the advice of sister Claudia and friend Nige (who are both employees of “Girl Meets Boy”) and go on a date with prospective client. After a frightening first date with Stuart, she elects to give him another chance and that decision changes Holly and her life forever. (I sensed a mean streak in Stuart and wondered why, even though Holly appeared to, she didn’t act on it). Continue reading Review: Behaving Like Adults

Review: Southern Charm


Southern Charm
by Tinsley Mortimer
Buy From Amazon.com
Reviewed by Rian Montgomery

Books about girls/women trying to make it in the big city have always fascinated and entertained me, so I made sure to grab a copy of Southern Charm, which promised this and more. The fact that the novel is allegedly loosely based on the author’s actual life made it all the more interesting.

So we have our main heroine, Minty Davenport (ahem), who is from a super rich and old-money family in Charleston, South Carolina. As a little girl, she dreams of visiting the big city, especially The Plaza Hotel, where the infamous ‘Eloise’ lives. So she is ecstatic when her mother surprises her with a trip to not only the city, Continue reading Review: Southern Charm

Review: I’ve Got Your Number


I’ve Got Your Number
by Sophie Kinsella
Buy From Amazon.com
reviewed by Rian Montgomery

Meet Poppy Wyatt. She’s about to marry the man of her dreams, but there is one major problem: she’s lost her engagement ring at a hotel where she is attending an event. It’s not just any ring, either – it’s her fiance’s family’s heirloom emerald engagement ring. A family that seems to disapprove of her, as well.

Poppy’s desperate search begins right at the start of the novel. Things get interesting when she finds a stranger’s phone in a garbage can at the hotel (since she manages to lose her own). She begins texting friends and family frantically, Continue reading Review: I’ve Got Your Number
