Phoning It In

Phoning It In by Anne Wentworth

This story was long and boring despite its simple concept.  The idea was ok, the delivery was ok, and the book was just ok. 

Melinda character tended to get under my skin with all her insecurities.  This got to be a little too much, borderline annoying.  Benoit should have not wasted his time with her.

I would also like to see less monologue, it tended to run on a bit.  Overall it was a ok book.    


Melinda can summarize her life in a few words: dead-end job, nonexistent love life, and a contentious relationship with her older sister—not exactly the rosy picture she had of life at 25.

When Benoit enters the picture, she falls hard. Gorgeous, funny, and smart, he’s everything she’s ever wanted in a man and more, but she can’t fathom that he could possibly want a plus-sized girl like her.

Tired of going through the motions, Melinda tries to find the courage to pursue her dream career, but working for a publishing company would mean moving away from everyone and everything she knows and loves. Is she content to remain in her comfortable rut, or is it time to strike out on her own and seize her chance at getting what she’s always wanted?


  1. I like how you get right to the point in your first sentence! I hate it when a book disappoints, especially when you see potential but it just isn't written to live up to that.

  2. Thanks for the comment! I really can't sugar coat things lol.
