Here's another chick lit book to add to the list of review - Finishing Touches by Deanna Kizis. This is another book that I read it about two days - several hours by the pool and then an hour before bed one night and this book was done. It was the kind of book that made me actually talk out loud to the characters. Definitely worth the $11 on Amazon (and of course anyone can borrow my copy). Some other bloggers also enjoyed the book - Girl in Nashville Reads and Diana Banana.
Here's a brief synopsis from Amazon:
When aspiring L. A. interior designer Jesse Holtz loses her dearest friend, Cecile, in a car accident, she's sideswiped by grief. Cecile was always the most beguiling girl in the room--the kind of girl Jesse always wished she could be. With no manual for how to mourn when you're a 29-year-old with an eye for flea market finds but terrible taste in men, Jesse turns to the only person who understands--Cecile's widower, Zach. But life takes an unexpected turn: Is Jesse's friendship wth Zach the beginnings of a romance? Or is Jesse just losing perspective as she juggles her grief and her condescending boss? And what if she and Zach got together--is that so unforgivable? A tragic comedy that makes for a breathtakingly optimistic read, this is the story of a woman who just might learn that life, like any good interior, can always use a little rearranging.
