I agree with you Suzanne. The title was so catchy but the story was disappointing outside of the little bits of humor in the beginning. If a book grabs my attention

I'll finish it off in a matter of a few hours simply because I just can't put it down. That book took me 2 weeks and probably wouldn't have finished it had it not been required

reading for a book club.

I loved it, too.  I've liked all of her books, but Bons Bons was my favorite.  If you liked it, try Kris Radish's "Annie Freeman's Fabulous Traveling Funeral." or "Dancing Naked at the Edge of Dawn."

I loved that book!  And, I did pick it up because the title caught my eye.  I had never read Lorna Landvik before.  I enjoy the book alot.

I really enjoyed that book, but later talked with so many folks who didn't, thought it more "women's drivel."  I was shocked.  But, I loved loved loved Patty Jane's House of Curl, her first book.  I do believe I loved it more than any one else who read it because I forced it on them.    I just never liked the last few books like I did those first two.

Now, if we are talking about titles, I think one of the very best I ever heard was Kaye Gibbons' On the Occasion of My Last Afternoon.

I am a huge LL fan and I even got to see her speak when "View From Mount Joy" came out.  She is SO funny and a pleasure to listen to.  She autorgraphed all my books-I brought in all my books by her-she wrote down the date, my name and my daughter's name, and wrote a different line in each book as well as autographing them.  I think my fave by her would have to be "Your Oasis On Flame Lake".

I read the book because of the title.  I really didn't care for it that much.

Loved the title, found the book to fall flat.
