Charley Southard is one of those people who thinks she has nothing, but is actually surrounded by treasure. She just can't see it yet.
Recently--and wrongfully--laid off from a job at a law firm, and without a penny to her name, 'In the Stars' starts with Charley in one of those situations we all hope to avoid: too many items at the checkout counter and not enough money to pay for them all. I instantly felt bad for the girl and was glad she had cute best friend Josh to sympathize, yet push her through, all these seemingly insurmountable troubles. Unfortunately Charley is stubborn. Everything would be better if she reunited with an old flame, her college boyfriend Drew. Soon Charley is on the road with a mission that feels doomed from the start. But what does she have to lose?
My favorite sections of In the Stars were the descriptions of Charley's job as a law clerk. I found these parts of the book extremely unique and well done. Also interesting is that the novel takes place in Canada. Perhaps I've been missing out, but there doesn't seem to be much in the way of modern fiction in that particular setting and I really liked reading about the landscape, architecture and society of Canada.
I will admit to cringing as Charley headed toward what could be called stalker status as she located and pushed herself on Drew. Oh no, Charley. Nooooooo. At the same time, I could see those exact moments the kind that would make a really fun movie. The author takes you through each moment you told yourself couldn't and shouldn't happen and yet still manages to wrap things up in a realistic and bittersweet way. 'In the Star' is a young book with a wise heart.Read more ›
Charlotte (Charley) Southhard's life has gone totally out of control. She is fired has been fired from a top notch law firm, and now even her credit cards are being declined. Charlie thinks all her troubles began when she broke up with Drew, her old boyfriend. With the help of her friends Josh and Heather, Charley sets out to track down Drew and get her life back on the track she thinks it should be on. Once Charley finds Drew, she learns the truth about him and herself in the process. Truth can sometimes be a bit of a painful lesson.
This book is very well written. The story flows smoothly and I got so involved in reading it. I started this book today and finished it today. For those who hate sex scenes or cursing in your books, there is none of either.
The characters in the story are believable for the most part. Our main character, Charley, is a bit immature and it takes a lightening bolt to grow her up really fast. Josh, oh we have the perfect man here ladies! I have never met a 'perfect' man, but if there is one like Josh out there, it is one lucky girl who catches him.
I recommend this book for teens on up. Enjoy your read.
For me, this novel started out on the verge of unbelievable. I mean, is it feasible for a smart, formally successful woman to arrive at the conclusion that her life, and future, will miraculously get back on track by reconnecting with the "one that got away"? But then, whom I am I to judge another person's misguided assumptions? And when it came right down to it, I wasn't far into the story before I was hooked, rendering Charlie's motivations inconsequential. Truth be told, I was captivated by a sick fascination to discover what calamities this poor, confused woman would bring upon herself. And I wasn't disappointed ;)
And to make this novel even more compelling, woven into Charlie's injudicious path is the most endearing hero, Josh, a love-in-the-making story I simply couldn't get enough of.
I'm a huge fan of Boyd's writing. Her style is witty and fun, while possessing a smooth, seamless, quality. Essentially, melted Dove chocolate for the eyes. If you're looking for a fun, light read, that is well-written and laugh-out-loud funny, with a most heartwarming ending, then this is the chick-lit novel for you.

This book was okay. The characters were likable and interesting, but the heroine was way too clueless to match up to her description as this smart attorney.Published 6 months ago by Kindle Customer
It was a fun read and that's why I give it 4 stars. I didn't always like Charlie, it's hard to believe that she could be so clueless, and the whole grandma part didn't convince me,... Read morePublished 13 months ago by Raingirl
