At thirty, Grace O’Bryan has dated every loser in Daytona Beach. After the ultimate date-from-hell, Grace decides to turn her dwindling book club into a Boyfriend of the Month Club, where women can discuss the eligible men in their community. Where are the real life twenty-first century versions of literary heroes such as Heathcliff and Mr. Darcy?
Could it be successful and handsome Brandon Farrell, who is willing to overlook his disastrous first date with Grace and offers financial help for her parents’ failing Florida gift shop? Or maybe sexy dentist Joe Rosenblum, who’s great with a smile but not so great at commitment? Unfortunately, like books, men cannot always be judged by their covers…
I’ve read this book. It’s warm, funny, and exceptionally well written. It’s the exact kinda book that makes a perfect Christmas gift. It’s the book that will make non-readers want to read. It’s the book you should be buying right now.
Go forth. Purchase. and Enjoy.
Rapid Topic Change!
Okay, so I’m not quite done blogging. Sorry.
Yesterday I posted a clip on Facebook from When Harry Met Sally. It is my 2nd favorite movie speech of all time. (care to guess what my fav scene is? Maria Geraci knows…) Anyway, here’s the speech from NYE scene where Harry tells Sally why he loves her:
I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out, I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich, I love when you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts, I love that after I’ve spent the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to begin as soon as possible.
Too bad there are way too many people out there who try to be something they’re not and then aren’t ever really loved for the person they really are.

Local Brewry Diamond Bear tapped their 2nd round of Two Term IPA last week. My thanks to Fishdog, for sharing his six-pack with me. I love me some Hoptastic Beer!
