During all of Ginger is dealing with getting a new job, a new place and trying to keep her cool. When talking with the police about her bosses death it is there she meets Nick a man she met years ago at her cousins wedding.
When Ginger has tried to everything she can to keep her life in check, she realize she is going to have to move back in with her mother and grandmother. There is where the story starts to pick up. Ginger's mother is a riot and her grandmother is there to give Ginger some advice that helps her out.
This was a cute and quick RDI read. Overall I really enjoyed this book and found it to be funny and a light read.
Loose Screws begins with 30-year-old Ginger Petrocelli drinking herself into oblivion on her supposed wedding day. Being stood up at the altar doesn't do much for the self-esteem, and Ginger's missing fiancé didn't have the guts to dump her face-to-face. However, it seems that no one has seen Greg lately - well, within the past couple of days anyway - and a knock at Ginger's door brings her past rushing up to greet her. A police officer - a one-night stand deflowering from ten years ago - is on the other side of the door to inform Ginger not to leave town while they search for Greg.
But that's not the least of her problems. From that moment on, Ginger's life quickly down-spirals, and it's one pothole in the road after another. It doesn't help that the police officer, Nick, seems to be around at every turn, looking cute and intensely blue-eyed as ever. So what's with Greg and his no-show stunt? How will Ginger cope with everything now that life's been turned on its head? Read this book to find out!
Loose Screws is a step above your average girlie book. While still maintaining its feminine appeal, this novel doesn't make you feel more stupid for reading it. I really enjoyed the story, and the writing was many, many notches above high-school level. A fun, funny, crazy ride of a book. Karen Templeton did good.
