Book Description

8 Nov 2011
Readers first met the irrepressible Waverly Bryson in Perfect on Paper, and now the woman dubbed by fans as “the American Bridget Jones” is back in a sequel packed with friendship, heartache, and romance. In It’s a Waverly Life, the formerly heartbroken singleton is now happily enmeshed in a new relationship, a new job, and a new decade. Her career as an advice columnist is taking off, and the future of her fledgling greeting-card line is bright. Of course, where Waverly goes, drama is sure to follow, and this time is no exception. Her broken engagement to former fiancé Aaron Vaughn has left her gun-shy when it comes to love, putting strain on her long-distance relationship with handsome Jake McIntyre. And when her best friends McKenna and Andie both make life-changing announcements, Waverly fears she is being left behind by the ones she loves most. In true Waverly fashion, things must get comically worse before they can get better. But in the end, she discovers that though life (before and after thirty) may be messy and unpredictable, friendship and love make it all worthwhile.

3.0 out of 5 stars IT'S A WAVERLY LIFE 13 Nov 2011
By Amanda TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
Thought I would give this book a go as it was a very cheap kindle download and I had not come across this author before. It appears to be a sequel to Perfect on Paper, the first book written about Waverly Bryson, which I did not read but really do not think it matters in the slightest, as it was not at all hard to pick up on the story. This novel is about Waverly, a bright and funny young woman who writes a column for a newspaper and is in a new romance which has its complications. Though it was an easy light read I did find it to be quite tedious in parts.

Fantastic follow on, didn't think life could get any funnier for Waverly but it does. Well written, witty, poignant and sometimes very emotional. I hope there will be a third!!

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent sequel 1 Jan 2014
By Emma
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book picks up right where Perfect on Paper left off. Her column is doing well and her Honey notes have got off to a great start, but essentially she is still the same Waverly Waverly is having a hard time adjusting to the recent changes in her life. Her best friend is pregnant and she has a sort of boyfriend. With her difficult relationship with her Dad and Aaron breaking her heart Waverly has a hard time letting people in. This leads to her nearly blowing everything. This book will have you laughing all the way through. Waverly and her antics are hilarious.

I enjoyed this book just like the previous one about Waverly and I am now on my third one. These are about the single lives of 3 friends approaching and reaching 30 and how life sucks at some times. I have recommended these books and would do so again
