(91)Groundswell by Katie Lee

Groundswell is a totally unremarkable book.

I am a devoted Chick Lit reader. I am more than willing to give any Chick Lit novel a chance. I am even willing to overlook bad writing for a fun plot or good characters. I love the ones that are unique and have unique, spunky characters. I am sorry to say that Groundswell was very mundane and cliche as far as Chick Lit novels go.

Kentucky native, Emma Guthrie is struggling to make it in New York when she gets a last minute offer to work as a Production Assistant on the set of superstar Garrett Walker's new movie. Guess what. He falls in love with her and sweeps her off her feet in a whirlwind romance. The book opens up with her discovering that Garrett is having a friend with one of her oldest friends, then flashes back to their romance and early days of their marriage. Will Emma be able to forgive him and go on with their marriage or will she chuck the cad to the curb?

The only thing I could think of as I read this book was how much of her real life experiences as Billy Joel's ex-wife found it's way into the book. Overall the book is a fast read and really, really, REALLY predictable. If you are desperate for a beach read, go for it. But be prepared to want your $25 and two hours of life back.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
