By: Becky Monson
Julia Dorning is a spinster, or at least on the road to becoming one. She has no social life, hates her job, and lives in her parent’s basement with her cat, Charlie.
With the arrival of Jared Moody, the new hire at work, Julia’s mundane life is suddenly turned upside down. Her instant (and totally ridiculous) crush on the new guy causes Julia to finally make some long-overdue changes, in hopes to find a life that includes more than baking and hanging out with Charlie.
But when the biggest and most unexpected change comes, will the new and improved Julia be able to overcome it? Or will she go back to her spinster ways?
By day, Becky Monson is a mother to three young children, and a wife. By night, she escapes with reading books and writing. In her debut novel, Becky uses humor and true-life experiences to bring her characters to life. She loves all things chick-lit (movies, books, etc.), and wishes she had a British accent. She has recently given up Diet Coke for the fiftieth time and is hopeful this time will last… but it probably won’t.
Becky runs a large on-line book club called “This Chick Reads”. Check it out on Facebook!
Becky Monson’s target audience for this book is, undoubtedly, women who are older than me. So with that in mind, I opened the book expecting to read it with an open mind as a twenty-five-year-old reading a book intended for women probably closer to my aunt’s age. The cover was fun, which was a plus, and I’ve read textbooks. How hard could it be, right?
Let me tell you something. Targeted for and older audience or not, this book made me laugh, literally, out loud. I was pleasantly amused from the beginning of the book to the end. The voice is real. I’m not talking “this is what a woman should sound like!” real, I’m talking closer to Sex and the City honest. I could actually imagine the women in my life being like this protagonist. It’s not for everybody, not in a long shot, but I definitely recommend it to the women out there looking for some good entertainment.
