Quite surprisingly I really enjoyed this book, although it is very similar to her first novel - "Summer in the Land of Skin". Claudia isn't much of a strong character until the end.

Claudia is a "tart"; sweet and sour, in love and life. A delightful read.

Just as her first novel, Summer in the Land of Skin (2004), did, Gehrman's second offering features a heroine on the move. Claudia Bloom has stolen her ex-boyfriend's VW bus to take her from Texas to California, where a job as a theater instructor at UC Santa Cruz awaits her. But the VW doesn't survive the trip; it explodes just after Claudia jumps out with her cat. She is rescued by handsome Clay Parker, and it isn't long before -commitment-phobe Claudia is falling for him. But an obstacle immediately presents itself in the form of Clay's not-yet-ex-wife, Monica, who is also an instructor at UC Santa Cruz. Claudia tries to ignore her growing feelings for Clay as she focuses on her job and its challenges, including obnoxious students, Monica's wrath, and the demanding department head, who just happens to be Clay's mother. Gehrman's enjoyable novel is as sharp and observant as the title suggests.

This book was surprisingly really good! Honestly I wasn't expecting much since its RDI, but I felt the novel had more substance than your average chick lit and I really enjoyed it.
