An Amazon users review, much better than the canned one:
Harriet Klausner - See all my reviews
In Philadelphia, graphic instruction artist Toby Morris works at the Toyland Toy Company and shares an abode with her platonic roommate Michael. A college friend Jenna informs Toby that she has a job as news graphics at WPHX. A jealous Toby watches the news to see how well Jenna performed in her behind the scenes job. However, Toby forgets about Jenna when she see weatherman J.P. Cody. She never has had a crush before, but now she is very attracted to J.P. Toby starts writing silly poems and shocks herself by mailing them to her heartthrob.
A drunken Toby informs Michael she sent poems to J.P and sends a new missive to J.P asking him to wear his blue check tie if he likes her poems. J.P. replies asking Toby for a picture. She responds immediately. He next asks her for information about herself and she answers promptly again. J.P. asks to meet with Toby, who is feeling ecstatic while Michael is upset at Toby.
BABES IN TOYLAND contain a strong lead character who serves as the center of the tale and a solid support cast that propels the story line forward through their actions and reactions to the heroine. The main plot is a chick lit theme, but the story line contains several other subplots widen the scope into a relationship drama yet smoothly return to the main theme as everything works through Toby, the focal point of the novel. Though a final relationship comes out of nowhere, fans will enjoy Eugenie Seifer Olson's Philadelphia joyride.
I really enjoyed this novel, once I got used to the author's writing style. I kind of saw what was coming with the plot twist, but only because I had something similar happen to me back in my high school days. This was a fun read.
I read this over 2 days. Fun and well written romance.
fun entertaining read, based in Philadelphia..nice little romance
Definitely chic lit, but fun, light hearted, but still has some depth to it. The main character works for a toy company, which plays into the inner child in all of us!
book about a girl who is in love with her roommate and dates guys that just can't measure up to him, she gets down on herself and realizes she has to tell him about how she feels
Absolutely delightful book! This book has a delightful story line, likeable characters, and good-hearted humor that had me laughing-out-loud many times during the book. Nothing profound, no explicit sexual details (refreshing in their absence - after all, after a while hearing sex described in overused phrases becomes as scintillating as listening to a bowling tournament -- "Well he got nine of the pins on his first ball, I wonder what his strategy will be for his next throw?")
Also, if you are familiar with Philadelphia - it is fun to read the Philly references.
As soon as I finish typing this review, I plan to search for other books by this author.
the book was ok but really not my style
