My Favorite by Crusie,
By A Customer
This review is from: Tell Me Lies (Paperback)
This isn't a typical romance novel - Crusie offers her superior writing to what could be a rather pedestrian story. Great dialog, wonderful characters throughout, good pacing, a decent mystery to boot. Yes it exaggerates the perils of living in a small town (US version, not quaint British village version), but as someone who grew up in a small US town, I can tell you it's not too far off. (OK, so the guys I went to school with didn't turn out as perfect as CL did!)And, the heroine isn't 23 with an almost perfect figure - she's over 35 with a few extra lbs. (not Jemima J poundage, but still - she's no super model.) Although I really like Crusie's other work, this one is my favorite.
