First published in February 2004.
It's my turn to select a book for this month's online Authors by the Alphabet Book Club. We're up to the letter C and I chose Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie. It's a contemporary romance novel and is one of Crusie's most popular and widely loved novels. I've always wanted to read it and now I've got a handful of friends reading it along with me this month.
I'd like to invite YOU to read it along with me, too!
"Minerva Dobbs knows that happily-ever-after is a fairy tale, especially with a man who asked her to dinner to win a bet. Even if he is gorgeous and successful Calvin Morrisey. Cal knows commitment is impossible, especially with a woman as cranky as Min Dobbs. Even if she does wear great shoes, and keeps him on his toes. When they say good-bye at the end of their evening, they cut their losses and agree never to see each other again.
But Fate has other plans, and it's not long before Min and Cal meet again. Soon, they're dealing with a jealous ex-boyfriend, Krispy Kreme donuts, a determined psychologist, chaos theory, a freakishly intelligent cat, Chicken Marsala, and more risky propositions than either of them ever dreamed of. Including the biggest gamble of all-true love."
Sounds fun, right?
Buy a copy, borrow from a friend, download it to your e-reader!
No budget for more books this month? Don't worry! I bet your local library has a copy sitting on the shelf just waiting for you to borrow.
The Authors by the Alphabet Book Club is an online book club that was started by Paula who blogs at Tome's Devotee and is made up of a small group of bloggers who take turns every month selecting a book for the group to read and discuss, making our way through the alphabet by authors last names. The person who makes the monthly selection is the one to host a discussion on her (his) blog on the last Thursday of the month.
Be sure to stop back here on Thursday, February 24, 2011 to join in on the discussion of Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie!
I'd love it if you could make it! :)
