Libby finds herself in the middle of an uprising with only Alex Bryant to protect her, that is, until Toby flies out to win back her affections.

 Ramble-y Teaserish Stuff

I have had Lynda Renham on my TBR since December 2015 when I first discovered UK Chick Lit. Thanks to Amazon bribing me to rejoin Kindle Unlimited, I'm finally getting to cross at least one of her titles off the list. I was most decidedly not in the mood for any sort of rom-com. Well, maybe the "com" but definitely not the "rom" ... until I started to read the free sample thingie. Before I was done with the first paragraph I thought that maybe I was in the mood after all. 

I loved getting to know Libby and Alex, Libby's best friend Issy, her flamboyant boss Jamie, and her far-too-hilarious and unpredictable parents. I did not love Toby or Penelope ... but I'm pretty sure that I wasn't supposed to so another point in favor of Renham. So Renham got all the points, I got the much-needed "com," a "rom" that I adored in spite of not wanting to, a great deal of adventure and intrigue ... and the rest of Renham's books added to my ever-toppling TBR.


"First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros" is from the first paragraph or two of a book being read now (or in the future) and is hosted by Socrates' Book Reviews. 

"Teaser Tuesday" at The Purple Booker asks for a random line or two from anywhere in the book currently being read.

Karen, you always seem to come up with new and unique titles; I hadn't heard of this but it sounds like it could be fun! Who likes diets? LOL
