Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Melissa Pimentel:

"Told through alternating perspectives of the past and present, this tale is for lovers of Jane Austen and sweet summer romance novels. The quirky characters and juxtaposition of time keep readers engaged [...] the feel-good ending is worth the read." - RT Book Reviews

"Pimentel (Love by the Book, 2015) offers a modern retelling of Jane Austen’s Persuasion in this tale of reunited lovers. Wedding? ?drama and light social satire make this an entertaining choice for NA romance fans." - Booklist

“HUGELY enjoyable! Great fun, a gripping read, and very touching.” ― New York Times bestselling author Marian Keyes

“Love by the Book feels like a no-holds barred girls’ night. I found myself laughing out loud at every turn. Melissa Pimentel is a great new voice. She’ll go far!” ―Cara Lockwood, USA Today bestselling author of I Do (But I Don’t)

"Melissa Pimentel's voice is wickedly funny and entirely appealing. Reading Love by the Book is like taking a tour of London on the arm of an audacious and hilarious new friend―in other words a whole lot of fun!" ―Meg Donohue, USA Today bestselling author of All the Summer Girls

"Wincingly honest and hilariously perceptive, Love by the Book is a fresh, funny, clever take on dating, relating, and finding love." ―Anna Maxted, bestselling author of Getting Over It and Running in Heels

"A fun romantic comedy (or tragedy, depending on the day). If you love "The Mindy Project", imagine Mindy in London surrounded by British hotties, fabulous friends, and way too much bad dating advice. A wonderful debut by Melissa Pimental. Can't wait to dive into her next novel." ―Kim Gruenenfelder, author of A Total Waste of Makeup

“For fans of Sex and the City.” ― Kirkus Review

“Pimentel’s riotous tale will appeal to any woman who has ever suffered through the woes of dating. Readers will feel Lauren’s frustration and find themselves relating to her mishaps and laughing at her more ridiculous predicaments. Witty and smart, Love by the Book puts a fresh twist on the age-old dating story and will especially appeal to millennials.” ― Booklist

"Honest, funny and cringingly relatable."―Glamour (UK)

About the Author

MELISSA PIMENTEL grew up in a small town in Massachusetts in a house without cable and therefore much of her childhood was spent watching 1970s British comedy on public television. These days, she spends much of her time reading in the various pubs of Stoke Newington and engaging in a long-standing emotional feud with their disgruntled cat, Welles. She works in publishing and is the author of Love by the Book.
