Jenn Taylor regrets the loss of romance in her marriage. As a busy stay-at-home mom, her life revolves around raising four young children. She envies the heroes and heroines in her romance books and decides to recreate her favorite love scenes to spice up her love life with her husband. With the encouragement of her friends, she documents her efforts in a blog.
Jack Taylor has everything – a hot wife, loving children, nice house, money and a great job. What he doesn’t have is time to enjoy any of it. A long commute into New York City and his job take up most of his day and night. While he misses the romance of the past, there’s always Tuesday night – when he is not too busy with the kids or too tired.
When Jack arrives home to discover the kids gone and his wife dressed for seduction, he thinks he has died and gone to heaven. Events, however, do not progress as either of them expects. Fortunately, they are able to avoid calling 911 for fire and health emergencies. They experience similar disasters on subsequent efforts, which are compounded by the interference of both sets of in-laws. Then Jack discovers the blog that documents their series of failures.
Love by the Book is a hilarious contemporary romance that will keep you laughing throughout. In her debut novel Ms Scavone created endearing and believable characters confronted by life situations and choices that most of us face. The trials and tribulations with in-laws may hit close to home with some. If you are looking for a fun read, Love by the Book is a great choice.
