The Secret to Falling in Love by Victoria Cooke (Book Beginnings & Friday 56)

Oh, NetGalley. I swore I was going to stay away from you but oooooh noooooo you just had to tease and tempt and suck me back in. Thanks for that. No, really. Had you not tempted me onto the site with something totally unrelated I likely never would have noticed Victoria Cooke's The Secret to Falling in Love and I am loving it so far! Now, if only an order link for Amazon US was available I'd be all set. (It's coming out on February 9th -- for some reason Barnes & Noble is good to go with pre-orders but not Amazon?!? Crazy times ....)

Publisher's Description
Status Update: I’m going offline for a while… Wish me luck! xx 
Lifestyle journalist and thirty-something singleton Melissa hashtags, insta's and snapchats her supposedly fabulous life on every social media platform there is. 
That is until she wakes up on her birthday, another year older and still alone, wondering if for all her internet dates, love really can be found online? The challenge: go technology free for a whole month! 
Forced to confront the reality of her life without its perfect filters, Melissa knows she needs to make some changes. But when she bumps into not one, but two gorgeous men, without the use of an app, she believes there could be hope for love offline. 
If only there was a way to choose the right guy for her…

Friday 56 (today is 56% from the digital ARC) is hosted at Freda's Voice 
& Book Beginnings (share the first few sentences) is at Rose City Reader.


  1. I like some romance but don't read them often, but I definitely have some at my library and this sounds like it would be a wonderful read. Enjoy!

  2. This sounds interesting. I don't know if I could go tech-free for a month without going crazy. My book this week is Beauty and the Wiener by Casey Griffith. Happy reading!

    1. I've been finding it rather amusing that I'm reading a book on my phone so I can ooh and aah about it on various social media platforms .... about a girl who gives up all of her devices! LOL!

  3. Uh oh. The Beginning doesn't sound so good for her.

    My Friday post features The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry.

  5. This sounds like a book I would enjoy. Thanks for mentioning it. :-)

  6. This sounds interesting, I am glad you are enjoying it! :)

  7. Sounds like a perfect Valentines read! Happy weekend!

  8. Eek! Offline for a WHOLE month... nope couldn't do it. Like the idea of the book, though:) Thank you for sharing.

  9. Sounds like a perfect read for this time of year!
