Book Club Review #4

This week's review is the last of the long overdue recaps - A Hopeless Romantic by Harriet Evans. The rest of the reviews you will see here will definitely be spaced out a little more to give us enough time to read the new books on our list. In case you missed it, here's what we are currently reading. Feel free to join along, we'd love to hear your feedback in a few weeks. 

Book Description: "Laura Foster is a hopeless romantic. Her friends know it, her parents know it - even Laura acknowledges she lives either with her head in the clouds or buried in a romance novel. It's proved harmless enough, even if it hasn't delivered her a real-life dashing hero yet. But when her latest relationship ends in a disaster that costs her friendships, her job, and nearly her sanity, Laura swears off men and hopeless romantic fantasies for good. With her life in tatters around her, Laura agrees to go on vacation with her parents. After a few days of visiting craft shops and touring the stately homes of England, Laura is ready to tear her hair out. And then, while visiting grand Chartley Hall, she crosses paths with Nick, the sexy, rugged estate manager. She finds she shares more than a sense of humor with him - in fact, she starts to think she could fall for him. But is Nick all he seems? Or has Laura got it wrong again? Will she open her heart only to have it broken again?" (from

Shari's Review: A Hopeless Romantic was a book that kept me captivated throughout its 500+ pages, which I thought would have been hard to do. It got to the point where I never wanted it to end. Some of it was predictable, but I think that can sometimes be nice in this kind of story. I would absolutely recommend it. In fact, I would say if you haven't read this one, definitely add it to your summer reading list. You won't be able to put it down! 

Shari's Rating:

Stacie's Review: I was so excited when Shari picked out A Hopeless Romantic to read, this book is by far one of my all-time favorite reads. I am definitely a hopeless romantic at heart and I love the fairy tale romance that this story brings. I'm also a sucker for British chick lit and Harriet Evans is one of the best. This is the most uplifting story that she has written and it definitely has it all even if it might be a wee bit predictable. If you love chick lit fiction, you must read this book!

Stacie's Rating:
