Romance: the Cure for Winter Blues
There is no shortage of romance novels on the shelves of your local library. If you're looking for something a little different, however, with terrific characters, some tears, some laughs, and, yes, that heart-tugging romance you crave, check out Love Walked In by Marisa de los Santos. It has some unexpected turns, and some predictable scenarios, too, but the characters are what gives this book its special glow. The characters are REAL. You can imagine sitting beside them in a coffee shop, or passing them on the street, or meeting them at the library. The book starts out one way, with 30-something Cornelia seeking romance in one way, but finding true love in an entirely different direction. Sarah Jessica Parker is set to co-produce and co-star in the film version, too, which is due out in 2008. So you can get a head start and read the book now!
