Julia Dorning has worked in a job she hates for too long, lives in her parent’s basement, and has no social life…she has declared herself a ‘spinster’. That is until the handsome Jared Moody starts working at her firm. Suddenly there is a reason to go shopping, wear make-up and not hide under desks looking for a stapler!
Just as life seems to be taking an upward turn for Julia, everything comes crashing down. Can she overcome her spinster ways and get her life back on track?
This was a delightfully funny story about a woman who has virtually no self-esteem and no drive to do anything different with her life even though she hates it. Julia is a great character and I can understand her way of thinking to some extent. Not the living at home or hating my job, not even the no social life ( I have a husband and children and am happy to sit at home reading when not doing family things) but I do associate with her apprehension for change. Change can be scary and having to make the decision to change can be even worse. If the change is forced on you, you have no choice but to make the best of it.
Other than knowing he has blue eyes and dark blonde hair we don’t really know a great deal about Jared’s appearance, for instance his age and height, but I would guess him to be around the same age as Julia and my mind puts him at about 6ft (you can make up your own minds about that).
There are some wonderfully funny moments in this book and the way it is written lends to the humour. Recommended as a fun, summertime read. I will be reading “Thirty – three going on Girlfriend” very soon.
