Pumpkin Spice and Not So Nice : Book Review

Welcome to my Saturday book chat at the Melville Library . Today my book is a cute fun book perfect for the holiday season. So grab my recipe and enjoy this book.

If I were ever to write a memoir, it would be titled, Jenna Peterson’s Guide to Dating Emotionally Unavailable Men. I’m like a professional at it. I’m so good, I can take any dysfunctional man and turn him into Prince Charming, just in time for him to dump me and then go on to marry the next woman he dates. I’m about ready to give up on loving real men and focus on lusting over fictional men in the Turkish dramas I can’t stop devouring.

But then . . . I find a mysterious fifty-dollar bill with a handwritten note on it that was donated to my family’s pumpkin patch by accident. And wouldn’t you know it, the mystery man it belongs to is emotionally unavailable, albeit freakishly attractive. I keep telling myself to walk away, but there’s something about Aidan St. Claire that makes me want to unravel all his secrets. All I know is he sure can heat up the cozy fall nights. I can’t help but think that maybe this time I’ll get to keep Prince Charming for myself.

Grab your pumpkin spice latte and cozy up with the newest romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Becky Monson!

My Pick:

  Once again, Becky Monson has me laughing and crying. Sometimes at the same time. I absolutely loved reading Jenna’s story and her crazy pumpkiny family. Another great read perfect for the holidays.
