Book 23

I just finished book 23 in my 25 books in 6 months challenge and I LOVED IT!




From Publishers Weekly
Veteran journalist Pekkanen debuts with a promising yet pedestrian post–chick lit novel about a successful New York ad exec who's passed over for a promotion then unceremoniously canned. Workaholic Lindsey Rose leaves Manhattan for her family's Maryland home, resuming her role as the smart, capable daughter. Years of jealousy surge into overdrive at her beautiful twin sister Alex's engagement party when she watches her lifelong friend Bradley, possibly the guy that got away, begin to fall under her sister's golden spell. After the obligatory ugly duckling makeover, Lindsey, no longer the plain daughter, continues to hide her new look from her family. Away from them, however, a newly confident and gregarious Lindsey emerges, one able to parlay her advertising skills into a new position at a matchmaking service. It takes a terrifying medical diagnosis and a visit to her parents' musty attic to complete Lindsey's transformation. Though the story is Lindsey's, Alex also plays a large part, though her selfishness is so relentlessly portrayed, it's difficult to determine just who she is. The pace is slow, and the story just adequate.


The story was great and I loved that it was set in the DC metro area/Maryland (seeing as though I live here). I especially enjoyed the fact that Bradley lived in Woodley Park, which is where John and I were married. This book is chick lit, but it isn't your typical chick lit fluff. It has a moral and a story that goes well beyond shopping and dating boys. I highly recommend this one.
