SLIGHTLY ENGAGED
by Wendy Markham

Genre: Mainstream, Chick lit

RT Rating

Tracy Spadolini continues her
comical escapades in the third book
of Markham's series. Tracy and her boyfriend, Jack Candell, share an
apartment, but after 18 months there's still no ring on Tracy's finger. On the surface, their life together is all right, but when they attend the wedding of
a friend, Jack's comments about marriage are less than positive.

When Jack's mother tells Tracy, in confidence of course, that Jack has
taken possession of a diamond from
the family safety-deposit box, Tracy is sure her engagement is imminent. In fact, every moment that she and Jack share becomes an engagement opportunity. Jack is bewildered by Tracy's behavior and attributes much of it to the fact
that she has quit smoking.

Although there are numerous lighthearted moments, Tracy overshadows Jack. There is also too much negative interaction among the characters. This detracts from the pleasing flavor of what would otherwise be an enjoyable read. (Feb., 336 pp., $12.95)
