Funny With Heart. This is one of those Hallmarkie type romances with a lot of humor and some mild ish angst. The humor is broad enough to cross cultures (being set in Australia and written by an Australian, even this American reader thought it was hilarious at times 🙂 ) and the drama/ angst was of a type that most any adult can identify with nearly all of it, between career and personal issues. I sound a bit repetitive right now with noting that this is a great escape for a couple of hours in nearly every review I write this week, but hey, sometimes you just get in a mode where you really need the escape, and this really does work for that. 😀 So if you’re looking for a fun, mostly light romance that still tackles some pretty tough subjects, you’re gonna wanna read this book. If you’re just looking for *any* book that can take your mind off the “real” world for a couple of hours, give this one a chance. And if you have kids of your own and only have a very limited amount of reading time… this one is near perfect, as it is a fairly short read (under 200 pages) to boot! Very much recommended.
