a groovy kind of love tour banner

Uptight British lit lover meets a free spirit at a book club and his world is turned upside down! After placating to his father’s demands that he play Little League baseball and major in computer programming in college rather than his beloved English literature, Thaddeus assumed that several years into his career, he would finally get some peace and quiet. Then he met Spring Pearson, the younger, free-spirited daughter of Hippie parents, at a book club meeting. Instantly smitten, Thaddeus finally worked up the courage to ask Spring out. But will an old college pinkie-swear promise Spring made fifteen years ago get in the way of this bibliophilic romance? ”A Groovy Kind of Love” is the third and final installment of Karen Wojcik Berner’s Bibliophiles series. Written as stand-alone novels, each book focuses on one or two members of a fictional suburban classics book club, revealing their personal stories while the group explores tales spun by the masters.

======================
I confess to not having read the first two installments of this book series, but luckily for me, each one serves as as stand alone so I didn't need to! After reading this one, I confess that I'm just not sure that I'll look up the other two. While I loved the characters, the story breakdown just didn't work for me. The first part is background on the two characters, but it just doesn't flow between the two very well. The actual story about Spring and Thaddeus really doesn't begin until part 2 in the book. The story there just seemed to flow with very little of the normal bumps and bruises that you expect to see in a romance. The cover leads you to believe that the old college friend is a rather large deal, but truth be told, I didn't find it to be. I found what happened in the end of the book to be a much bigger issue, but again, not nearly as dramatic as perhaps it could have been. Overall, it's an easy read and one that some might enjoy, but it didn't have me doing any sort of jump jive in my seat.
