Lebak’s heroine, a New York resident, Lee is nearing thirty years old, the age her mother says will doom her to never marrying. Lee’s mother regularly sends Lee’s resume to employers, obtains a job for her daughter, and sends a resignation to Lee’s employer, Max. Lee loves her job as an auto mechanic and is exceptionally good at it.
But whenever she meets an eligible guy, she lies to them about her occupation. Lee’s guardian angel, Bucky, whom she can see and has conversed with since early childhood, pushes Lee to tell the truth.
Naturally, her lies eventually ruin romance with the one guy she’d like to date regularly.
Meanwhile, Lee is mentoring her niece, Avery, who is harassed by a cliché at the private high school she attends. Avery provides the possible disaster on a night where Lee thinks she’s doing a good deed.
The way Lee finally impresses the guy she likes best will have women who believe we can do anything chuckling and cheering.
Oh this cover is TOO CUTE!
Honest and for True (HAFT for short) is the first in the adventures of Lee and her guardian angel Bucky. Although Lee loves working as an auto mechanic, she has a teency problem with lying about it to the guys she dates, crafting a new story for each person she runs into. Bucky can't stand the lies and he tries to get her to come clean before it's too late.
You know it's always gonna be too late. So while as a reader, we know this little problem is going to blow up in her face, it still hurts like hell once it does. By the time the conflict comes to a head, I'm totally invested in Lee's life and her amazing relationship with the unseen angel. Lee and Bucky are both hilarious, making sarcastic jokes at the drop of a hat, and Lee's voice is really engaging and fun to read. The relationships between Lee and her roommate, mother, niece, boyfriends, and especially Bucky, come across genuine and heartfelt. I like for a book to draw me in deep, and HAFT nailed it.
There's funny parts, sad parts, tense parts, and heartwarming parts. Plus, it has the most amazing toilet-repair scene you've ever read. Essentially, if a book can get me to cry and/or genuinely FEEL for the main character, it's a 5-star. Here you go Bucky, take your stars and share 'em with Lee.
About the guardian angel: her relationship with her guardian angel is terrific. Bucky is a wonderful character in his own right. Lee can see and hear him though no one else can. He helps her get out of scrapes, gives advice, and is hopelessly addicted to Fleetwood Mac.
You have to love Lee and root for her to find what makes her happy--and to find love.
