If you consider yourself a well-read romance reader, would you:
Savannah loves to take magazine quizzes so she’d like to see your answers to her question above. She’s a mild mannered CPA in Maple Rapids, Michigan who is about to marry a very predictable (if not boring in my mind) man who may not create fireworks for her, but is responsible to the core. However, on her wedding day, he feds break into the church in the middle of the ceremony to arrest her for tax evasion and money laundering. As it turns out, her identity was stolen by somebody in Florida and she is soon released from jail.
However, the fiancé is gone because he can’t live down the shame of it all. Even though she’s innocent, in her small town it’s hard to not be treated like a criminal. She decides she’ll no longer be the "A" answer girl, but heads straight to "C" which means a move to Florida and time to recreate herself into a party girl and fun loving gal. Can all these articles help turn an A girl into a crazy C woman? Join the fun as we watch Savannah try.
Oh—while in Florida, she does have a hunky landlord. Too bad she thinks he’s gay. What’s worse, he’s not gay, is attracted to her, but sees the criminal record on her background check. That makes her off limits.
I had such a great time watching the sparks fly and the fun that ensues when Savannah makes up her mind to change. There are quizzes between each chapter to summarize the prior chapter to give us a taste of what’s to come. I have always found Ms. Brandt’s books to be charming and full of fun. This one takes the wedding cake on fun.
