Fashionably Late by Beth Kendrick

Title: Fashionably Late

Author: Beth Kendrick

Genre: Chick Lit

Summary: A designer decides to have her teenage rebellion later in life and moves to LA to hit the streets to peddle her wares.

The Take-Away: Cute and sweet. One thing that was different about this title, that I really liked were two issues the author tackled head on: pregnancy and ex-boyfriends that don't go away.

Minor plot spoiler. Fair warning

The pregnancy came after an the sister's ideal wedding to a perfect man who loses his job for doing the right thing. She is crazed with hormones and thinks through scenarios that float through every woman's mind, but few probably admit. I admire her taking on such an enormous topic.

The ex-boyfriend is more like a finance, who won't go away. He refuses to recognize that the relationship is over. Neither will anyone else. They keep waiting for the MC to come to her sense. Again, something that is true to life, but seldom seen in books.

Recommendation: Borrow it from the library for a rainy afternoon.

Other books read in March
