Easily Amused (book review)
Easily Amused was written by Karen McQuestion.
When I read Scattered Life and added it to my book list I said I liked it, but not enough to rush off and find another book by Karen McQuestion. That statement was absolutely true... and I have to admit that when I download Easily Amused to my kindle it was because it was on a list of low price ebooks and sounded worth the read. I realized it was the same author after I started reading. Oops.
Book description from karenmcquestion.com:
When twenty-nine-year-old Lola Watson unexpectedly inherits a rambling house in the suburbs, she thinks it just may be the cherry on a banner year. After all, she’s happily single, with fabulous friends and her dream job working at a popular magazine. Life is perfect—until her new neighbors make her their new “project,” a heartbroken high school friend crashes indefinitely at her house, and her younger sister announces she’s getting married…on Lola’s thirtieth birthday. Suddenly Lola’s not so keen on her newfound domestic bliss. But when she meets handsome, mysterious Ryan Moriarty, Lola dares to hope she’s found the perfect guy to one-up her sister and add a little spice back into her life. This light-hearted romantic comedy from Karen McQuestion is headlined by a charming cast of characters, led by the self-deprecatingly funny Lola. Breezy and fun, Easily Amused serves as a gentle, often amusing reminder that love can often be found in the place we least expect—under our very noses.
I think I feel the same way about this story as I did about the first. It was an enjoyable read. Lola, the main character, was interesting enough. I very easily disliked Lola's sister as much as she did herself. Hubert (Lola's friend) was a lovable guy. Ryan Moriarty (the mysterious neighbor) keeps you guessing. But again... I'm not in a rush to buy another of Karen McQuestion's novels. I guess they're just not my favorite type of books.
