Book Review- Vanity Fare

51VdTYir4tL._SY346_PJlook-inside-v2,TopRight,1,0_SH20_Megan Caldwell’s Vanity Fare is a fun, witty read that also deals with some very real issues about self esteem and keeping your own identity after marriage.

The heroine is a forty year old woman with a six year old son. She is going through a divorce. Being a lawyer who represents people in divorces means I normally do not like books with that as one of the core issues. This book didn’t annoy me with that though as it didn’t get too deep in the details. Thank Goodness. I almost put it down but after the third chapter, I was okay and could tell it would be all right.

I enjoyed the literary references in the story as well. The heroine becomes a copy writer for a new bakery in NYC and she writes blurbs that tie literary classics to the baked goods. I admire the author for the cleverness of the idea. She did a great job pulling those together.

There’s no shortage of handsome men in the story as well. The author made me guess for a little while who would actually turn out to be the hero and I like that. I’m all for a deviation from the romance standard.

This is a great book to read with a nice cup of tea and some kind of baked good because you’re going to want one! There are even recipes at the end. All kinds of cool.
