I Would Highly Recommend this Book

"Plum Girl" made me laugh out loud numerous times. You've got a fantastic lead character in Lonnie Kelly. Lonnie is a girl who got a degree in Feminist Theory and is now working, of course, as a temp. She hates her boss, who doesn't seem to remember her name and is appropriately named "Twit," and her love life isn't all it could be, seeing as a boy other than her boyfriend is the one that makes her heart go pitter pat!The story is kicked into high gear when one of the bosses of the firm she's temping at is found dead at an office party (in the closet, no less). Lonnie and pals set out to find out what really happened.Jill Winters did a fantastic job on this romance/mystery. As I am a HUGE romance fan, I can tell you that this book is not lacking in that department. The mystery is good and will keep you on your toes too. All in all, this was one fun book to read. I will be recommending it to friends and family.

Love, romance and a murder

This book deals with Lonnie who had just graduated from college with Master degree and was working as a temp in a law firm. It was one of those monotonous job where your boss can't even remember your name. The firm had also interesting characters. It was in the same building that Lonnie met up with an old college friend, Dominic. Sparks flew but Lonnie was fighting to control her desire for him as she was semi-attached to Terry, a struggling comedian. At the same time, Lonnie was also dealing with her mother who felt that Lonnie should lose some weight, her sister moving in and accidentally discover the dead body of one of the partners in her law firm. She was also working with a local cop to snoop around the office and to observe her colleagues as the cops believed that the partner was murdered.I really like this book because it doesn't just deal with romance which I find is too boring and predictable. Jill Winters did a good job in interwining the romance between Lonnie and Dominic with the murder mystery. Another thing that is good about this book is that it is not slow-paced unlike other books and the characters are very likeable. There are also funny moments in the book especially with Lonnie's mother and her relationship with Dominic. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a relaxing yet enjoyable book.

Fun Contemporary Romance

Lonnie Kelley and her younger sister Peach have been best friends since they could remember. They live together, and share each other's thoughts on boyfriends, work, and life in general. But when Lonnie's demanding boss, Beauregard Twit, mysteriously dies, she decides that it's up to her to investigate his death. In the meantime, she needs to think of a good way to break-up with her semi-long distance boyfriend, Terry. So she can start seeing Dominick, the guy who "sends her into a meltdown of raging lust in seconds flat."This is a hilarious contemporary romance. Readers will enjoy the relationship between Lonnie and her quirky sister Peach, and relish in Lonnie's hilarious commentary. Fans of "The Boy Next-Door" written by Meggin Cabot will love this novel, and vice versa. A must-read.Erika Sorocco
