Synopsis: 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.
About the Author:
Karen Wojcik Berner writes contemporary women’s fiction, including the Amazon best-selling series, the Bibliophiles. An award-winning journalist, her work has appeared in several magazines, newspapers, and blogs, including the Chicago Tribune, Writer Unboxed, Women’s Fiction Writers, and Fresh Fiction. She currently serves on the Author Council of LoveToReadEbooks.com and is a member of the Chicago Writers’ Association.
When not writing, she can be found on the sidelines of her youngest’s football or lacrosse games, discussing the Celts with the oldest, or snuggling into a favorite reading chair with a good book and some tea.
A Groovy Kind of Love is a very sweet story. And while not my typical read, it is very well written. You really get to know Thaddeus and Spring; their journey to each other was sad in a way, neither really feeling truly happy or understood. Their courtship was a lovely in a humorous and awkward kind of way.
The first part of the book gives us the history of Thaddeus and Spring. It was kind of slow for me, to be honest, but it does give you a solid background of the characters. The second part of the book covers their courtship, which was told very differently than many of today’s books.
I would give this book 3.5 cups. This not to say that the book is bad, it just didn’t have me desperate to read or addicted. So, if you need a break from violence, sex, and alpha males, this book is a great choice.
