Although she has an alarming propensity toward uttering "Ewww!" at the slightest provocation, protagonist Olivia is mainly funny, smart and observant.
Olivia's single, living in Florida and working as a reporter for the local paper. However, she dreams of finishing a novel. Or opening a bakery. Her quest to understand what she truly wants from life neatly shares plot duties with her man troubles. Because her father abandoned her and her live-in boyfriend dumped her, Olivia often jumps to wrong conclusions about men, especially her hunky neighbor, Hunter.
Will Olivia finally figure out her destiny? Or learn to trust men? Thompson answers these questions with charm and flair in her debut novel. (Aug., 282 pp., $26.95)
