BOOK REVIEW | ‘LET IT BE ME’: THE RIGHT KIND OF LOVE TRIANGLE!

Jude Worthington is tired of being a kind of pawn in his father’s life. Working at his father’s law firm is the expectation for both Jude and his selfish brother, Warner. But when Jude wants a new dream, to run his own food truck, he makes a deal with his father that just may cause more trouble than he anticipates.


TACOS FOR TWO, BETSY ST. AMANT | BOOK REVIEW


REVIEW: This is one of the books late in 2020 that I was excited for. The cover art was bright and eye-catching, and the plot did sound fun, too! Full disclosure, I’m not the biggest advocate for You’ve Got Mail, but this novel, the first full length I’ve read by St. Amant, is certainly a re-telling of the beloved 90s romantic comedy. There’s so many things that call to mind moments from the film (down to quotes), but Betsy also manages to bring her own voice to the trope.

One thing that I do think drags back and forth too much is the will they, won’t they idea. The back and forth between misunderstandings and a happy end takes a few too many detours and it’s a little more than I would have liked to see. That said, this book is sure to make you all sorts of happy with its cute antics and likable characters.

Anyone who appreciates a cheerful romantic comedy will enjoy Tacos for Two. It’s colorful and entertaining, romantic and a little bit salty, all in the best kind of way.

Sincere thanks to Revell for kindly sending me a copy of this novel for review; all opinions are my own.

Content: nothing to note, unless you’re bothered by kisses between a couple who likes each other. There is also some underhanded dealings, but nothing terrible.
