Book Review: Attempting Elizabeth

attempting

It’s hard to know what to say about this book without giving away too much of the plot line.

Meet Kelsey Edmundson, the born romantic heroine and main character who tends to get into her stories–and I do mean into them. Think Pride and Prejudice meets “Groundhog’s Day.” Pretty soon the trick becomes not getting into them, but how to get out of them. After all, you can’t go up to a fictional character in a fictional novel and tell them they’re not real, can you? What would happen if you did?

After mastering the ins and outs of getting in and out of her favorite novel, Kelsey has the freedom to actually start tampering with the plot line itself! From there the story just gets funnier and funnier.

Meanwhile, life in the normal universe goes on, with Kelsey encountering various characters with suspicious counterparts in the novel she keeps losing herself in. From there the story takes an unexpected turn . . . . and that’s as far as I’m willing to go. No spoilers here!

This story made me laugh out loud several times, and the ending was sweetness itself. Original and refreshing, you’ll want to read it more than once. I got it as a giveaway on Amazon, but I would gladly have paid for it. Try it, I bet you’ll like it!
