by Becky Monson
“According to Webster’s dictionary,
A spinster is:
1: an unmarried woman of gentle family
2: an unmarried woman and especially one past the common age for marrying
3: a woman who seems unlikely to marry
Julia Dorning is a spinster, or at least on the road to becoming one. She has no social life, hates her job, and lives in her parent’s basement with her cat, Charlie.With the arrival of Jared Moody, the new hire at work, Julia’s mundane life is suddenly turned upside down. Her instant (and totally ridiculous) crush on the new guy causes Julia to finally make some long-overdue changes, in hopes to find a life that includes more than baking and hanging out with Charlie. But when the biggest and most unexpected change comes, will the new and improved Julia be able to overcome it? Or will she go back to her spinster ways?”

About the Author:
By day, Becky Monson is a mother to three young children, and a wife. By night, she escapes with reading books and writing. In her debut novel, Becky uses humor and true-life experiences to bring her characters to life. She loves all things chick-lit (movies, books, etc.), and wishes she had a British accent. She has recently given up Diet Coke for the fiftieth time and is hopeful this time will last… but it probably won’t.
Becky runs a large on-line book club called “This Chick Reads”. Check it out on Facebook!
Stephanie’s Review – This book is a lovely quick-read novel. With themes of love, work, and the hilarity of everyday life, there is a little something in this book for everyone. I spent time bonding with each of the endearing characters and I even found myself cheering for them as the book progressed.
From her quirks to her way of thinking, I think every woman will find something charming about Julia. Monson has written a love story that is a refreshing look at real love, not a sordid sex affair found in most popular novels today. I laughed. I loved. I cried. I would definitely recommend this book to friends and family, as well as read it again myself.
