Talk Bookish to Me by Kate Bromley ~ a Review

by MK French

Kara Sullivan is a romance author and Bookstagrammer, but she hasn't written anything in her latest novel and her best friend is getting married. Her first love is in the wedding party, which is irritating but also inspires the steamy aspects of her novel. Her book needs a happily ever after, but maybe she could get a happily ever after of her own.

Kara is a fun character to follow, with a sharp sense of humor and a wicked way with words. She has two very close friends who snark with her too, and it's so much fun to read their interactions. They don't always pass the Bechdel test, as in addition to their personal problems they wind up talking about dating in general and Ryan in particular. It was a bad breakup in college, but nine years later there's still a lot of strong emotions simmering between them. He listens as she discusses her love of romance novels, writing them, and the tropes she enjoys. She's definitely a woman I want to be friends with!

The inevitable problem that drives them apart is a big one, and I don't blame any of the characters for being upset. It takes a grand romantic gesture to undo enough of the hurt to listen, and it's the kind of thing that Kara appreciates. This second chance romance is a lot of fun to read, as were the snippets of the historical romance novel that Kara was writing.
