At first I was very annoyed that the whole book is written as emails, notes, memorandums, etc. But I always finish a book no matter what. Once I started, I found it was very easy to read and you really got the whole story and it was really quite humorous. I enjoyed it.
Cute story of a romance between Kate Mackenzie an HR rep, and Mitchell Hertzog, a lawyer representing her company, told through emails, phone calls, and diary entries much like "The Boy Next Door" and "Every Boy Has One". Kate is made to fire a much loved pastry lady by her boss, the T.O.D (tyrannical office despot), because the pastry lady refused to serve the T.O.D's equally hated fiance. Kates protests fall on deaf ears. When the pastry lady comes back with a lawsuit Kate's job is in jeopardy and the company's lawyer - Michael Hertzog must step in.
This was very cute! The whole thing is written in various forms of modern correspondence -- instant messaging and email mostly, with some personal journal entries and the occasional note, memo, transcript, or store receipt to round things out. That did give me a slightly removed feeling at first so it took a little while to feel like I knew the characters. By the end I was flowing right along and wanted more! This is a very fast, easy, and fun read.
And I may have to give some of Ida's recipes a try! The gingersnaps are calling to me....
fun quick read - book is entirely made up of emails, IMs, diary entries, etc. I enjoyed it enough I am reading another by her written in the same style.
Laughed out loud. I enjoyed this book so much I immediately requested another by the same author. Done is a format of e-mails, phone calls, interoffice correspondence.
