This book is freakin’ hilarious. At points, tears of mirth were streaming. I love situational comedy and this book is right up there with my favourites. I promptly contacted the author and asked her where she’s been all my life.
(I did refrain from saying I’m her biggest fan because when someone says it to me I want to run. Misery ruined that line for all of us, JSYK.)
Our poor, hapless heroine is the nicest girl but it’s like she takes daily direction from a Murphy’s Law calendar. If anything can go wrong, it most certainly will. She’s jinxed. And she meets this swoony dude–an absolute catch–but Murphy’s Law kicks in as usual.
Katherine told me she hangs out with Debra Anastasia and Helena Hunting but she’s the quiet one skulking unnoticed in the corner. All I can say is, if these three were set loose in Congress, big things would happen. Big, scary, funny things. The world order would tip on its ear. They’re three of a kind.
I first encountered Katherine’s work in Felony Ever After. Her bits were fantastic. I’m including one later in this post so you can see what I mean.
This book is the perfect summer read. Five stars.

About the Author:
When Katherine Stevens isn’t writing, she can usually be found opening juice boxes and looking for lost shoes. Her kids keep her quite busy and always zig-zagging across the line of sanity. She is a lifelong Texan with a terrible sense of direction and even worse memory. She thinks life is entirely too hard if you don’t laugh your way through it.
As a child, she dreamed of being the most sarcastic astronaut in history, but her poor math skills and aversion to dehydrated food kept her out of the space program. Now she writes to pass the time until NASA lowers their standards. Your move, NASA.
