AND IT IS AWESOME!
We learn that Fiona was as kind and thoughtful and intelligent when she was younger as she is in the future. Her soulful eyes and wise and watchful presence attract Greg. Greg, whose sense of humor is caustic and sarcastic, dry and wry, is always good for a shock-filled laugh, but underneath he's serious, driven and worldly.
"This is my chance to ruin you for anyone else."
"By telling me all about how terrible you are?"
"By being honest. By playing no games. When I tell you that I am a selfish bastard, I mean it. And when I tell you that you're wonderful and amazing and stunning and definitely the most extraordinary woman I've ever met, you'll know I mean that, too."
Greg is too smart and jaded for the college kids he's surrounded by and he's also insanely funny. But Fiona, despite her very shy demeanor, is pretty damn funny and quick, too so she makes a great match for him.
I didn't want this to end, I could happily read about Greg and Fiona forever and ever. Luckily, there's a sneak peek to the first chapter of Happily Ever Ninja and I was sucked in! I also howled in despair when it was done and I had to face reality that it was only a sneak peek. DANG IT!
If you want me to give it to you straight, I'll tell you that you don't HAVE TO read this between #4 and #5. Just like you didn't HAVE TO read Scenes From the City. BUT your life will be so much more enriched and fun and glorious if you do. Every one needs more of the Knitting crew and Greg is not to be missed--He's (MARK MY WORDS, HERE) going to be your book boyfriend for all of eternity. No, scratch that! "Your BOOK HUSBAND for all of eternity."
And Fiona. Fiona was compared to having a Grace Kelly/Audrey Hepburn look, but it permeated into her personality. She was utter class. Her logic, her compassion, her ability to see through other’s pains and not fall for the shallow, petty, prideful reactions, to me, that’s what made her an amazing heroine. It was like she was an old soul, and I couldn’t wait to see how she would approach the uncomfortable situations. I’m very heterosexual, but I may have a little girl crush (no pun intended because she’s only 5’2”) on Fiona.
Seriously, this book is happiness in words. It’s heart-beaming sunshine with pages. This is the type of book where if you don’t like it, well, that’s just weird.
This is a sweet, coming of age romance. I fell in love with Fiona and Greg and can't wait to read book #2 which is actually book #5 in the series. Since each book has different characters and I started on an origins book, I can't tell you much about the series.
