When the story begins, Susan has been divorced for a year from her husband T. Chandler, who has dumped her for a younger woman and left her with nothing except a big mortgage. Susan has a dead end job at a pawn shop, a son in college, a controlling mother, and a flighty younger sister who has run away to Hollywood and had a baby by a movie producer. There's also Jack, a high school boyfriend who has just moved back to Charleston, Susan's hometown.
When everyone ends up moving into Susan's home, the three-ring circus begins. It's both funny and painful to watch Susan trying to keep her sanity while accommodating her family members' whims. You just know that Susan is eventually going to blow like a volcano, and when it comes, it's the highlight of the book.
I was extremely impressed with Ms. Evans' writing, which was very polished and professional. Her characters were fleshed out very well, enough so that I wanted to reach through the page and throttle some of them. Dialogues were realistic and natural, and scenes flowed smoothly.
Although self-published, "We Interrupt This Date" is as good or better than many NYT bestsellers that I've read. I know that's a big claim, but it's true in my opinion.
The bottom line: Two thumbs up and five stars for Ms. Evans for a marvelous book.
This story follows the "quintessential chick-lit plot." It makes for a very comforting and fun read, but there really wasn't anything that took me by surprise. There were several threads that ran through this novel, and I felt that the story meandered around in the middle. Instead of one straight, tight thread with the lesser storyline threads wrapping around the central thread, it felt a bit more like the secondary threads were rather loose. They did all find some closure by the ending, but it felt like a winding road to get there. Some aspects of the storyline were really endearing and amusing, but some parts dragged just a bit for me. The ending was satisfying in the way that this type of book tends to be, offering a warm, cozy feeling in lieu of surprises.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It's predictable but fun, and a great way to pass some time. This is the perfect type of book to take to the beach this summer.
