ABOUT THE BOOK 

What if you could find the love of your life just by reading between the lines?

Single mom Fordham Price is juggling her job at a small publisher, her precocious ten-year-old daughter, and her feisty mother. She wants to find time for men, but after a series of dating disasters, her relationship status is still stuck at single.

As if her macchiato lite wasn’t already overflowing, a co-worker gets pregnant, and Fordham is expected to step in and deliver the company’s latest reality read from the Flowers from the Heart series. She must now supplement her own romantic misadventures with tales of cynical cat-ladies, identical-twin husbands, spunky monks, and countless other web-crawlers.
As she wades through the submissions, she finds one from a widower whose story gives her tingles in all the places she forgot existed. His words draw her in until she finds herself daydreaming about him more than she’d care to admit.

Could she have a love like that, or will her romantic fate be forever bound to her philandering ex-husband? 


Love-Lines by Sheri Langer 
Rating: ★★★★☆
As a note, a copy of this novel was sent to me by the author in exchange for an honest review. This does not effect my opinions in any way.

Modern Chick Lit has just been saved by Love-Lines by Sheri Langer. Without a doubt, one of the funniest and most endearing releases in recent memory. What I expect from a good chick-lit novel, at its core, is pretty simple: humor, heart and soul. Love-Lines delivers on all three of these qualities beautifully.

Sheri Langer crafts the perfect spring and summer time read, that feels intelligent and indulgent. I found myself smiling and chuckling to myself quite frequently in Love-Lines, and it's the type of humor that is subtle and light. The very kind that meshes perfectly with the central story-lines in the novel, without being overbearing and cheesy.

What is most striking about the story is that it has a ton of qualities to it that never border on cheesy. I found that the story had great pacing and everything within it, melted into each other thoughtfully and smooth. Love-Lines had everything going for it and never let its readers down.

I found Fordham to be a very strong main character and seeing the way that she navigates her ever-changing life was really, genuinely fun. If I were to describe Love-Lines in the most simple of terms, it'd be just that: fun.

Ultimately, Love-Lines is sweet and fluffy, without downgrading its heart and soul. If you love snark in your literature, this book will certainly compel you. It is by far one of the smoothest novels of the year that will have readers giggling, smiling and having a blast.
