Melanie reaches out to a quirky roommate with a ton of baggage and becomes involved in a budding romance with a local documentary filmmaker.

Cute and easy but this genre is just not my cup of tea. I struggled with the message of the novel too as it is the opposite of accepting all body types. In that aspect, it was very disappointing. I really need to stay away from women’s fiction.

    I really want to like Stacey Ballis because she’s local. I’ved tried two of her books and I feel like they all sound way too alike. At least you have one off your shelves?

      She is a regional author for me. I can’t say that I would read any of her other books, but I can understand her appeal to certain audiences.
