a) slap him silly.
b) report him for harassment.
c) invent an imaginary husband."
I don't know what it is about romantic-comedy that draws me in, but the newest novel by Lia London, Her Imaginary Husband, sure did not disappoint. Ms. London has an incredible grasp on writing dialogue (All those years in the theatre department at WOSC together I am sure. Go Wolves!) and while I was reading I visualized the whole story as a movie in my mind. (Hint-hint Hallmark!!) It's a clean, lighthearted romance that entertains and educates. The characters were fantastic, from the likable heroine Nikki, to her bossy mother, to the two men who rival for her attention, to the secondary characters of the students Nikki instructs her rookie year as a English/American Lit teacher at a local high school. The dialogue is snappy, clever, and witty. The comic moments are funny without being over-the-top. There are several laugh out loud moments, but also a real sense of discovery as Nikki discovers herself and her place in her new world. I was crying happy tears at the end.
I highly recommend. 4 Stars.
