What is it about?
Nora Hamilton knows the formula for the perfect romance. As a screenwriter for the romance channel she can tell you the precise formula for the made for TV love story.
But when her husband leaves her and her two children Nora channels her anger and despondency into the ultimate movie script and when Hollywood comes knocking so does Leo Vance, the movie star playing her ex-husband.
What’s the Verdict?
The Iggy & Burt team have gone down the romantic route for this month’s Iggy’s Bookclub pick. We thought what we were getting was something hopeful and light but surprisingly it was so much more, there was a lot more meaning than expected and it made it such an enjoyable read.
It was sweet and fun with a good dose of reality. Nora’s routine with the kids plays centre stage, even their involvement with the relationship development with Leo makes her a much more believable romance heroine.
Without giving too much away the misunderstanding between Leo and Nora felt very realistic and the stoicism someone would have felt in that situation was spot on.
If you are looking for a quick, light read that will leave you smiling at the end, this is the pick.
