Product Description

About the Author

Julie Christensen is the author of Searching for Meredith Love and The Truth About Dating. A native New Yorker, she studied painting at Pratt Institute and worked briefly in advertising on Fifth Avenue before she realized that her "creative" job was sucking the life out of her soul. Julie worked as a live-in Au Pair in Brooklyn, taught preschool, and lived in Barcelona and New Mexico before finally going back to school to get her Masters in Audiology. She wrote Searching For Meredith Love while living in New Mexico. After graduation, Julie did her fellowship at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota before moving to Omaha to work at a center for pediatric audiology. It was in Omaha that she discovered how hard dating is when you are an old thirty-something. She began writing about her horrible dates to amuse her single friends and make her married friends appreciate their husbands. The Truth About Dating is based on these experiences. Julie was introduced to her future husband by an acquaintance who, after reading a draft of The Truth About Dating, realized that she knew the perfect man for Julie. One blind date led to marriage less than a year later. They now have two children, ages 2 and 3. Julie continues to paint (juliechristensen.net) and write (julielivingthedream.blogspot.com). She is currently at work on her third novel, a mystery set in Brooklyn.

This is a great read. I was hooked from the beginning and couldn't wait to find out what would happen in this character's work environment (gripes about the office will be very relatable to some people), friendships and love life. The friendships that she has are rich and sometimes complicated--a very important part of her story. I thought her two friends were very funny--for different reasons. She has some social anxiety which at times is humorous and at times is cringe worthy, but you want her to make it through unscathed. As for the love life - well, there's a lot of lovin' going on, but of course it can't be an easy road to happiness. I laughed and shed a tear...highly recommended.

I read this because I had enjoyed, 'The Truth About Dating' but was in for a shock. The characters are all one-dimensional, predictable stereotypes and the plot is as thin as the worst 'Mills & Boon' stories. The heroine was so wet, she needed a slap but I thought the book would be about her gaining strength from her life experiences, so I stuck with it. Her leading man is intolerably stupid but is the essential good-looking doctor, so all is forgiven. This book even has the nerve to poke fun at the standard cheap romance novel which it emulates. There is almost nothing redeeming about or contained within this book. Avoid.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well written and engrossing 28 Jun. 2011
By Ingrid Honaker Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Searching for Meredith Love was an unexpected pleasure. I say unexpected as the Kindle .99 books are hard to figure. There are some great books and then some books that are not worth the time. I found Searching for Meredith Love to be engrossing and well worth the time to read. The first chapters are slow but interesting. I was not sure of the direction of the book early on but once you get further into the book the characters are written with depth and dimension and are likable. I enjoyed this book and I would tell others to read this book as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read! 2 Feb. 2011
By BG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A great book that had me hooked from the beginning. I was really surprised by how good this book was. I had a hard time putting it down once I started reading. I was expecting a lot of drama that would not be all that believable. I found I could relate a lot to the main character Meredith Love and her life. Who hasn't had the annoying coworker that expects you to drop everything for them? Or that boss that hits on you? Meredith has quirky coworkers and some great friends that give her many learning experiences throughout. A must read!

1.0 out of 5 stars If there were 'minus' stars 12 Sept. 2011
By Lynda Hester - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Searching for Meredith Love left me searching for the reason the author bothered to put this on paper.

Another reviewer remarked Meredith is whiny. That is an understatement. The complete lack of ANY interesting aspect of her life seemed at first to be simply a different type of 'hook' to draw the reader in. I kept thinking, "Okay, she had diarrhea three days in a row, so she's going to be diagnosed with a rare and incurrable disease."....Didn't happen. Then, "she has a type A personality friend -maybe she turns out to be a vampire"....Didn't happen. Other than her being too stupid to realise that a fairly nice fellow was interested in her in a normal way (which the author choose to portray in a manner that insinuated the fellow was a cad to begin with), there was literally nothing in this book to stimulate even the slightest bit of interest in the chararacters.

There was nothing. No rhyme. No reason. No plot. No storyline. Just a dull and exceptionally boring book that was a huge waste of time.

The author does seem to have some sort of weird fixation on bowel movements and excreta. THAT was WAY too strange because there was no reason for the inclusion of those details. They contributed nothing to the book other than to annoy and disgust the reader.

Bottom line: Even if it is free, do not waste your time!

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth Reading 3 Sept. 2011
By TRLK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Overall I enjoyed this book well enough. I gave it 3 stars because while worth reading it isn't a masterful literary work. There are very few books that I would give 5 stars, Gone With The Wind and Catcher in the Rye among them, just so you know where I'm coming from on this. When I can give only 5 stars to literary masterpieces, I just can't give this book more than 3 even though I liked it.

As a side note, something that amused me was Meredith's job as a "computer programmer." Nothing Meredith does in the book is remotely close to computer programming. She doesn't write code or talk algorithms, she is basically a data analyst. With all the detail that went into Meredith's responsibilities at work, I felt the author should have done some research so that the character's job title was congruent with reality.

One thing that I think is worth nothing is that there are some sex scenes, including one that is a tiny bit graphic, so I wouldn't recommend that you let your teenager (or younger child) read this book.

I did feel the book dragged a bit, especially after (SPOILER ALERT, DON'T KEEP READING IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS) Meredith and Ben broke up. I found myself anxiously speeding through pages because I wanted to find out if they got back together. If they hadn't gotten back together, I would have been very disappointed and felt like I wasted my time reading this book. If there was a sequel, I would read it, though I probably wouldn't pay much if anything for it since there are so many free Kindle books available.
