My review of Love by the Book by Angela Scavone

Jennifer Taylor's fairytale marriage to Jack has hit a rut and their life doesn't seem to have worked out the way they had planned it to. Now 4 kids later Jenny is desperate to spice up her love life with Jack by recreating scenes from her favorite books.

When one of her best friends suggests blogging about how the dates go Jenny agrees but when Jack finds out will they be able to get through the aftermath?

For me the book started off a little slow and then it got good and I didn't want to put it down. The book was so funny in how wrong everything seemed to go and it really makes the reader feel like they are not alone with their own struggles that they may or may not be having in their own lives.

Jenny is awesome for trying to get her love life with Jack back on track and honestly I just loved how everything went wrong but they still tried and in the process spent more time together. Jack obviously worked super hard to provide for his family and wasn't there all the time like he wanted to be.

I hated Jack's mom and thought she was so intentionally cruel to Jenny as was Mrs. Crammersten. Yet they definitely provided Jenny with some strength in overcoming what she was up against.

I was definitely worried towards the end of the book yet knew something was up after Krista's conversation with Jenny. Loved the ending of the book!

Great read!
