|Yes, that is our P.O. Box key!|
This is a classic women's fiction / chick lit novel. We meet Izzy Lane who is a divorced single mother of a little boy who's ex-husband, while he's there for is son in theory, is flighty and can't be trusted. When Izzy's ex husband tells her that he doesn't have the money to help pay for their son's daycare and that he is leaving the state with his new girlfriend to "look for work," she is faced with quite a dilemma. To make a little extra money, Izzy begins blogging for Philly Over 40, specifically about dating over 40. The only problem is that Izzy hasn't gone on a date since her divorce. Izzy's nights out consist of visiting her elderly neighbor who has become a dear friend and confident. But that's not going to help her meet any men, and quite frankly Izzy doesn't seem like she wants to go out and meet any men. Sure, the idea of dating is interesting in theory, but why be bothered? Men are just too messy and there are SO MANY weirdos out there....So, Izzy begins to invent herself an imaginary boyfriend named Mac with whom she writes about for her blog purposes.
But you see, the small blog begins to become more and more successful. & Izzy can't tell anyone that Mac is made up, because if her secret is out, the blog will tank. Even her best friends think that Mac is real. Throw in a deeper secret that Izzy's elderly neighbor has been hiding for years, and you get one messy (yet light) novel about truth, love, family, and blogging.
So dear Dewey Readers, if you like blogs (which if you are reading this we're assuming you do!) go pick up this book and give it a read! And dear readers, I leave you with a rating of 3.75 out of 5 Coffee Beans.
Until the next read!
