From Library Journal
Jake, a carpenter, and Maggie, an underemployed, unwed mother, are the hero and heroine of this light romantic comedy, which is innocent enough to satisfy conservative public library readers. The implausible, slapstick storyline is based on mistaken identity. Jake, a contractor working on the redesign of a trendy psychologist's office, meets Maggie when she comes to the doctor, distraught with her life and seeking a 21-day "overhaul." Unbeknownst to her, the real psychologist is in the hospital for heart bypass surgery. Jake likes Maggie's looks, so he sits her down in the office and listens to her story. When she asks the "doctor" why he's dressed so informally, he replies that it's "casual day." They fall in love, and Maggie doesn't discover his deception until the riotous climax. There are delightful local-color vignettes of the San Francisco Bay area, as well as satirical jabs at pop psychology, talk television, and the Me Generation. A sure-fire potential movie script, this enjoyable first novel is recommended for most public libraries.-AJoyce W. Smothers, Monmouth Cty. Lib., Manalapan, NJ
