This novel is the second that I’ve read from the lovely Sophie Hart. The Girl’s Guide to Falling in Love really showcases how Sophie knows what to do to create characters that suck you in with their witty and often sarcastic personalities.
Who hasn’t wondered what it was like to be a sex therapist? Getting to know all the nitty gritty of peoples most intimate relationships? What if you were a sex therapist, who 34 and single? That’s Annie Hall. The main character. She often times counsels other couples on how they can improve not only their sex lives, but their relationships in general. She does a great job fixing other peoples problems, but she can’t seem to keep a relationship going for herself. Her sister is married, and is having a baby, her parents are empty nesters, and Annie feels like she’s just stuck waiting for something to happen. Once Annie starts working with the couples in her therapy sessions, she realizes that maybe she needs to listen to her own advice and get back out there and find love again.
One of the things that I really love about Sophie Hart’s writing style, is that she incorporates multiple characters story lines in her books, and they all somehow tie in together. This is such a refreshing way to read a book, it’s almost like a movie. I love the different perspectives on relationships. From a newly engaged couple, to a couple trying to conceive, and a middle aged couple who just want that spark back in their lives. This was a really funny, up lifting read, which is exactly what Sophie hart is known for. I was not disappointed yet again.
I give this book 5 out of 5, I cannot wait until we get another dose of “The Girl’s Guide To…”
