Very funny

I read this book on vacation almost in one sitting. It is very funny. Alice and all her adventures are well-observed. I do hope there will be another...

A Sweet, Neurotic, and Adorably Charming Heroine...and cupcakes!

Alice Fisher has more than a touch of anxiety, so it seems that she's found the perfect partner in fellow neurotic Stephen, an attorney who insists on splitting every bill right down the middle. Her life in London is safe, cozy, and dead boring, until it's upended when she has to fly to Barnsley, Ohio to woo reclusive alcoholic former music superstar Wyatt Brown into completing his final album for her employer, Carmichael Music. That's where things start, but not at all where they end. With all the clueless charm of a Sophie Kinsella character (like when she's caught drinking a glass of wine after she's supposedly confessed to being an alcoholic, or has to , Alice tries to sort out who's who in small-town Barnsley, a tight-knit, gossipy haven where farming is a way of life. She summons to her mind Dr. Vaizey, who organized a group back home for anxiety sufferers (where she met Stephen) as she tries, for the first time ever, really, to be truly independent. Alice soon finds that she fits perfectly into the town with all its quirky inhabitants, even though she only reluctantly lets herself admit to her feelings for Wyatt. Along the way, she organizers a fundraiser for a cow, helps a 12-year-old with his homework, coaches a teenager to sing "...Baby One More Time" in the Barnsley Idol competition, pretends to be a "baby whisperer," and escapes the traps set for her by her nemesis Heidi and the clutches of a rather sleazy guy named Gerry. Yes, you pretty much know what's going to happen to Alice from the moment you start reading...but she doesn't, and as she, in all her neurotic charm, figures it out, she wins you over. This is a perfect summer read - especially if you have a cupcake with you to nibble on.
