I knew this would be a fluffy chick piece when I saw it on the shelves at the Salvation Army, but it was 49¢ so there was no losing out. Some chick lit books leave me irritated, but Wanderlust kept my attention the entire length of the book. She had a few too many romantic trysts, but the traveling and dude-swapping was part of what kept it moving along so quickly. I give this two thumbs up for a summer read. Highly intellectual? No. Highly entertaining? Sure!

Funny book about a budget travel writer and her romantic entanglements. Written in the e-mail form between her, her gambling mom, curmudgeonly editor, handsome ex husband, best friend and new British romantic interest.

This book was a hoot! I found it to be funny, sexy, and a little crazy at times.

The main character Kate Bogart is a flight attendant who travels all over the world. This book is about all her love interests that she meets while trotting the globe, and her hilarious email correspondances to her best friend and her mother.

This was a fun little "trifle" to read inbetween some heavier books. A quick read and some chuckles. Nice and light.

Chick-lit scores a hit with this debut romantic comedy about the adventures of a fancy-free travel writer written entirely in the form of e-mails. How is sexy Kate Bogart ever going to find true love amid her whirlwind romantic entanglements and glamorous globe-trotting? There's the Portuguese bullfighter who's hot for her, the intriguing British former war journalist who may or may not be The One, and her ever-loving, New Age-y ex-husband hoping for another chance. Kate tries to enjoy her options, but ends up playing one lover off another and suffering the inevitable mixups and miscommunications that plague relationships conducted by e-mail. Meanwhile, she's tirelessly typing out versions of daily happenings to her mother (who's placing bets on Kate's sex life with the other ladies of her bingo circle); to her long-suffering best friend, Violet; and to her boss, Ted, the dyspeptic travel editor who gets booted out of the house by his wife's female lover. Kate stays conveniently ahead of her lovers' clutches and narrows the field to two devoted hunks while managing to write her travel articles (or at least get endless extensions) and bully Violet into continuing to take care of Kate's all-but-abandoned cat. How does she manage to have these adventures while spending so much time typing in hotels? The question remains unanswered, but readers will enjoy Kate's wisecracks and the clever plot twists in this virtual comedy of errors.

I found the writing style pretty annoying. The story would have been much better told in a straightforward manner than as emails.
