A GIRL LIKE YOU by Maria Geraci

Winner announced  
HERE AT THE BOTTOM OF POST!







If you overheard someone refer to you as the "ugly friend" how would you react? Well, in Maria Geraci's novel, A Girl Like You, this phrase is what rolls this charming story of love and friendship into motion! …

SheKnows Book Lounge calls A Girl Like You the "Ultimate Escape" and also says that "Geraci's books are so addictive that once you've begun reading, you'll find yourself lost for hours in her heartwarming stories about flawed yet lovable characters." Who can resist a book like that? Especially when we're dealing with our everyday lives? Definitely NOT ME! I'll take that escape!

Here's what A Girl Like You is about... And as I'm a native of Tampa, Florida, I love that part of the story is set there...

Every ugly duckling is a swan in waiting...

Emma Frazier is smart, hardworking, and loves her job as a journalist for a Florida lifestyle magazine. Emma knows she’s no great beauty, but she’s pretty certain she has a shot with her handsome new boss, Ben Gallagher—until Emma overhears a mutual acquaintance refer to her as the “ugly friend.” In an effort to reclaim her battered self-esteem, Emma decides to impress Ben at work by promising an exclusive interview with NASCAR legend, Trip Monroe.


Emma and Trip went to high school together and although it’s been fourteen years since they’ve spoken, Emma is certain she can score an interview with the elusive super star. But connecting with Trip turns out to be harder than Emma imagined. Her quest for the interview leads her back to her tiny hometown of Catfish Cove, where old secrets and a new romantic interest shake up Emma’s views on life and teach her that maybe the key to finding true love is as simple as accepting yourself for the person you were always meant to be.
