Our Eyes Met Over Cantaloupe by Anne McAneny
Anne McAneny is on tour with CLP Blog Tours and Our Eyes Met Over Cantaloupe. The story follows Millie Morris after she endures a bad breakup- over fried eggs. Her ex informs her calmly that he has moved on- with their real estate agent. Millie is devastated, blindsided, but tries to continue on with life as normal. She works as a crime reporter, and also helps her mom run her cupcake shop The Secret Lives of Cupcakes. Just when she thinks her heart is healed, her ex comes back in a big way- he wants her back. Will Millie choose to give him a second chance, or will she ever find the strange man that made her heart flutter when their eyes met over cantaloupe at the supermarket?
I could tell from McAneny’s blog that she is a comedic writer, so I was looking forward to a book filled with laughs- and that is just what I got. The writing is snappy, the characters are fresh and funny, and plenty of scenes had me laughing out loud. And I just adored reading about the cupcake shop! And salivated a bit as well. This book will leave you craving for cupcakes, give you plenty of laughs, and also be very entertaining to read. There were a few times that I wanted to give Millie a good shake and tell her to stop letting her slimy ex worm his back into her life, but, hey- that happens right? The ending even gave me a nice surprise, and overall, I really enjoyed this book. I recommend it to chick lit fans!
