Flirting with Forty

Flirting with Forty - Jane Porter Chick lit. It had been quite a few months since I had read that type of book. I usually go thru these in one sitting. No change with this one. It's an enjoyable romp but it's like eating cotton candy, lots of air and sugar. Jacqueline, 39, newly divorced, with 2 kids, her ex dating, living with a 20 years old. All the clichés and conventions of romance novel under the guise of serious chick lit. Jacky goes to Hawaii for a week's vacation alone (because the married girlfriend cancels at the very last minute), meets gorgeous surf instructor, has fling with said gorgeous boy toy. After that... it's goes the way of cheesy romance novels. Fun and light reading.
