Love by the Book: A Novel

We rated this book:


Lauren Cunningham moved to London to escape everything about her old life that was making her miserable, including her husband. She’s not looking for commitment, yet she’s having a hard time finding men who are just interested in good sex. So Lauren decides to turn her love life into a science experiment. Every month, she will pick a different dating guide and follow it to the best of her ability; surely she’ll eventually learn the best way to find a man! Unfortunately, the journey is rocky, and along the way Lauren must deal with issues from her past she’d rather forget.

For a fun and honest look at the dating troubles so many women face, look no further than Love by the Book. Melissa Pimentel’s delightful novel is by turns hilarious and depressing, and many women will identify with Lauren’s struggles, even if they can’t imagine taking her approaches to finding men. Lauren is a fun and realistic character, the kind of girl many readers aspire to be (or maybe just to have as a best friend), and her desire to find something out there that truly suits her makes for an enjoyable read.
