Joshilyn Jackson outdoes herself with Someone Else's Love Story. I stumbled upon Ms. Jackson's novels last year and she quickly became one of my favorite authors with her intelligent, funny, beautifully created and very human characters. In her latest novel, she builds a story surrounding a young single mother with a brilliant child who develops an attachment to a man who helps her during a convenience store hold-up. Ms. Jackson is a writer who brilliantly brings to life the unique and fully-realized voices of her characters. As a reader, having no idea how this tale could end without heartbreak for the characters I had come to love, she unveils the story with such tenderness and humor that I was at one point hopelessly longing for the resolution she so masterfully provides.
Funny, Smart, Complex
One of the most memorable moments of The Best Man is when the groom comes out to the bride while at the alter, at the urging of the best man.
Amy Rubinate does a great job in differentiating characters and the voice of the male love interest is particularly engaging and sexy.
This book made me laugh out loud several times. Kristan Higgins does a great job of writing internal monologue and revealing her characters vulnerabilities.
Kristan Higgins writes funny multidimensional characters and sharp, hilarious dialogue. If you are a romance fan who likes that kind of thing, you can't go wrong with KH. This particular book had many passages that made me laugh out loud. The edginess of the relationships gives a lovely realism to the story while keeping a great resolution that comes about as the result of psychological healing. KH is one of my must-read authors.
Rachel Gibson comes through again with a smart, sexy, contemporary romance that is certainly worth the read.
Love a good love story with a Navy Seal.
Great character voice differentiation.
