Down on Love by Jayne Denker  When it comes to love, she's a professional skeptic. Is it too late for a career change?

If there's one thing Georgiana Down is an expert in, it's bad relationships. That's what inspired her blog, Down on Love, where she gives snarky advice--usually along the lines of "dump him." In fact, George is abstaining from men all together. At least that's the plan--until she makes a trip back to her tiny hometown in the Catskills, where meddling is an art form. . .

George loves helping out with her new baby niece, but she's counting the days until she returns to Boston. Then she runs into Casey Bowen, her high school crush. The boy she once loved is now a handsome grown man--and suddenly George needs a little advice of her own. She's in the right place, because when she drunk posts on her blog, everyone in Marsden has something to say about George and Casey. It's like high school all over again--but maybe this time she'll get things right. . .


MY REVIEW:


    It had been almost a decade and a half at least since Georgiana Down had been home to Marsden.  One day out of the blue Sera (her sister) calls her in Boston where she is now living.  She is asking her to come home to Marsden to care for her niece Amelia (who she has never met) and to help with Sera’s wife Jaz who hurt her back at work.  Sera needs to work at making her pottery and can’t do it with a baby under foot and her wife to care for.

     George’s first reaction is to say, “NO!”  If she goes back she is sure she will never get out once they suck the life out of her and she is trapped there.  Then she will never get away.  This is visit sucked her in and the one person she really wanted to avoid since she felt nothing but embarrassment was, Casey Bowen, she runs right into within hours of being home.               
     You see when she was young she lusted after Casey, dreamed of Casey, and loved Casey.  Even now after all her time away in the Big City of Boston and having gone through several failed relationships, the last one making her mildly famous.  In fact it helped her keep almost afloat monthly.  You could say you see the last failed relationship with Thom (to be mean she would say the “h” when saying it.)  She exacted her revenge on his abusive ways how you ask by writing in her blog.  Come on a roller coaster of a story as two people find each other again after just a taste of what it means to be one then two and now one again.  You will not regret it.
