The Unhoneymooners

by Christina Lauren

This is my third try with Christina Lauren. While one was pretty good (although I do not remember it, strangely), Roomies, the other, Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating, which seems like her most popular book, I just didn’t cotton to. This one I listened to, and it was a delight. I loved both of the main characters, the romance was good and there were plenty of chuckles. I liked the character development and how, after a couple of years of being antagonized by and not liking each other (due to a misunderstanding when they first met and one thing leading to another) they slowly went to appreciating and enjoying each others company, to attraction and then soulmates. The story is given some more layers with a delightful family, some drama with Olive’s twin sister and her new husband, a career crisis, and the lovely setting of Maui for those that enjoy a little vicarious living. There were a few silly misunderstandings but they resolved them quickly like intelligent people. When there was the inevitable break-up it was over something huge, so it wasn’t frustrating for me. The break-up was as justified as the happy ending was welcomed. Well done.**4 1/2 stars out of 5**
