As I promised during the Stuck In A Good Book Giveaway Hop here my review for the witty novella called ARMS WIDE OPEN by Juli Caldwell.
Once in a while I come across a story that makes me laugh out loud. A story that within the first sentences captures my attention for its easy flow, characters’ traits and funny/witty mood setting. And I can’t stop reading or laughing, falling in love with the heroes and rooting for them till the very end.
ARMS WIDE OPEN by Juli Caldwell is one of those stories I’ll definitely read over and over again. Easy to finish in one sitting this novella follows Lauren, a grad student whose life measures in tiny breaths of sanity mixed with mending a broken heart. At her roommate’s insistence Lauren attends a speed-dating event where people meet others in five-minute short sessions. Little does she know that her life is about to change in ways she hadn’t expected (if you assumed it is because she meets Prince Charming, I hate to disappoint you but it’s not). It’s something totally unexpected that will have your eyes goggled and saying, “WHAT????”
For someone who wrote a crazy scary novel (called PSYCHED, which had me sleeping with the light on, seriously) I applaud Juli Caldwell for her ability not only to switch genre, but for doing it in such a great manner that her voice sounds different, really funny and above all, unique and clear.
I loved this story and in the end I found myself wanting more of Lauren’s humor and delightfully funny sarcasm. A well-deserved 5-star review.
