(119) The Frog Prince by Jane Porter

After reading the last book I was looking for something light, with a "happy ever after" type of story. Jane Porter came through with The Frog Prince.

Holly Bishop has always believed in "happy ever after". So much in fact that she rushed into marriage with her French boyfriend, Jean-Marc, only to have him tell her that he doesn't love her on their Honeymoon. Holly is devastated. Her whole world is rocked and her belief in true love and "happy ever after" is destroyed.

Holly takes an event planning job in San Francisco where people try to set her up at every turn. Date after date. Toad after toad. Holly meets someone who could be someone she likes. But she is so scared to get hurt again, she pretty much blows him off. Will Holly ever realize that she doesn't need a "Prince Charming" to be happy?

I really enjoyed The Frog Prince. I remember the days of dating toads and Lord knows I dated a LOT of toads. I groaned in empathy at Tom's innuendos and I cheered when she left Paul in the restaurant.

The Frog Prince was a fun, empowering, Chick Lit novel. A must read for all women still trying to survive in the dating world!
