The Shameful Diary of a Hopeless RomanticThe Shameful Diary of a Hopeless Romantic by Suzi Case
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

My true rating on this is 2 and 3/4 stars, but I've rounded this up to 3.

Book Blurb:
Maggie is a dreamer with lots of goals to achieve on her 'before 30' list. She wants to fall in love, write a book and lose weight. Only nothing seems to go as planned. She finds herself: signed up for a marathon when she can't run, with a book deal without a book and surrounded by 2 hunks: Ben and Blake, neither of whom seem to know she is a woman. What's a girl to do when she's a hopeless romantic? Write about it of course.

This is book 1 in the series 'The Shameful Diary of a Hopeless Romantic'.

My review:
This is written along the same lines as Bridget Jones Diary. The heroine of the story is a flighty, self-centered, weight-obsessed young woman in her late twenties, who makes a lot of assumptions about the people around her. 

The story is fairly humorous and entertaining, but incredibly short and ended quite abruptly. I realize the author was probably trying to leave it open for a sequel, but I felt a little more conclusion for this book would have been better.

There are also quite a few typos in this book which are a bit distracting.
