Book Description

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.

    More About the Author

    The story of how Maria became an author is a little crazy. She used to work in high-tech PR but hated it, so she quit and ended up playing semi-pro soccer in Argentina for a year. While she was down there she decided to write a novel, which was something she'd always dreamed of doing. Fast forward a few years and a LOT of perseverance to land a publishing contract, and she's now the best-selling author of the Waverly Bryson series (Perfect on Paper, It's a Waverly Life, Honey on Your Mind, Chocolate for Two), as well as Cassidy Lane, Katwalk, and Wait for the Rain. And yes, she still plays a lot of soccer!

    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars More fabulousness! 6 Jan. 2012
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    I discovered this on the kindle and saw it was the sequel so I downloaded Perfect on Paper at the same and got to it. If you read my review of her first book you will know I loved Maria's Murnane's first book and It's a Waverley Life even beat that for me. I loved it more than the first one. It seemed to move at a slightly faster pace making it even more easy reading than the first one. I think for every woman reading they can see a little of Waverley in them, she makes you champion her, you want things to work out for her as she suffers the same complications that we all do sometime in our life.
    If you don't know who Waverley Bryson is by now then shame on you and double shame if you haven't discovered Maria Murnane yet. I read about her on her website and can only applaud what she has achieved by truly believing in something she loves. I read that she is working on a third novel at the moment, I can't wait for the release of that. Love this book, if you are thinking of buying it, don't think just buy.

    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
    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
