Smart Girls Think Twice

Some books you finish and with a shrug of the shoulders, go - ehhhh. Smart Girls Think Twice was ok. I'm not a better person for having read this but it wasn't a complete waste of time. In other words I didn't get the rush. The endorphins rush I get from a truly well-crafted tale- romance or otherwise.

Some books just make you feel good. You turn that last page and all is well with the world. This isn't a book for that- come to think of it either was her last one Big Girls Don't Cry. As with The Fourth Bear, I started reading and thought...I know these characters ...and then it occurred to me this is a this Emma Riley, the brainaic of the family returns home to attend her sisters' weddings. While home she, a sociologist devises a research study on the recent boom of new occupants and new businesses in her small home town. 

Jake Slayter, a newcomer to the area, is the first on her list to interview. Sparks fly- They have great sex and little conversation.

Pros: a quick read, good dialogue, some good scenes. 

Cons: Heroine is a little snotty and unlikeable, she gets the small town up in arms with no work on her part - supporting cast is a little unbelieveable and annoying. 

It's not horrible- it's good just not great. If I remember correctly that's how I felt about Big Girls Don't Cry.
