In Search of a Love Story by Rachel Schurig
Love Story # 1
In Search of a Love Story is the first installment in the Love Story series by Rachel Schurig.
I really enjoyed this book despite it being quite predictable. I figured out who the “prince charming” was by chapter 3. I loved the journey to find him and the heroine finding herself along the way.
The secondary characters were just as likeable as the main characters so this series is sure to be a hit.
The plot was cute and a no-brainer. Sometimes I like to just read and not have to think, so this was a nice change.
Overall, this is a cute, funny read full of romantic pop culture references.
Emily Donovan doesn’t have a romantic bone in her body.
At least, that’s what her friends Ryan and Ashley keep telling her. They’re convinced her bad luck with men is directly related to her life-long lack of interest in all things romantic. When Emily’s latest relationship crashes and burns, she decides to go along with her friends’ plans for a romance research project. Sure, the idea that she’ll have better luck if she learns about the great romances of literature and film seems a little silly, but Emily figures it can’t hurt.
In no time at all, Emily finds herself buried under a mountain of romance novels, chick flicks, and sappy love songs, hopeful that her hard work will pay off with true love. When she meets Greg, Ashley and Ryan are convinced she’s found prince charming—after all, he’s rich, handsome, and totally into Emily. What more could she want? And why does it seem that her friend Elliot isn’t exactly happy for her?
Faced with misunderstandings, miscommunications, and a seemingly endless string of missteps, she is nevertheless determined to give true love a try. In doing so, Emily will eventually find that true romance, the kind that lasts, has little to do with stereotypes or clichés, and everything to do with finding out what’s in her own heart.
