Blech. A heroine who is a grown woman loves Disney princesses, talks to her cat, paints animal print martini glasses against the NYC skyline, and listens to Michael Buble? No. I will say a 1.5. I literally feel a little nauseated after finishing. For those who enjoy chastity, this is 100% sex free. ( )

I lost my faith in romantic novels. Though Lauren is the second author of romantic novels I have read. The first is all time Nicholas Sparks. And I love the way he explains a situation.

I knew before reading the book that Sebastian and Sir where same guy. I think the book was a bit streched. I got bored in the middle and was about to leave the book. I didn't as I wanted to know about the ending. I am not disappointed about the ending of the book. As they get together in the end.

Though the last reason of Sebastian not telling the truth To Gracie( the dialogue) was a little stupid and not giving the sensible reason getting 100% love. It was just stupid.

I got reference to read this book from a site, as I am preparing for a competative exam. It was a okay read not awesome nor good. It was a fine read.

Though I don't recommend anyone to read this book. Read any of Nicholas Sparks books you won't be disappointed, but this is a big disappointment. ( )

If one hates mistaken/hidden identity in general (I never fully hate a type of romance-execution, I say!) and finds it hard to pull of, why does one love Shop Around the Corner/You've Got Mail above all else?

Is it the epistolary aspect? Probably a little. After all, being fully vulnerable in writing is something I can understand. Is it the dream vs reality? The kinda-sorta falling in love twice? The animosity at first? Yes, probably all of that. I do love the idea that you dream up a person then, in a way, they don't compare to the reality of the human in front of you. You are in love with an ideal made real.

Anyway, I'm back from that detour. But anyway, yes, I'm trash for Shop Around the Corner. I haven't read a Lauren Layne, and I have all but broken up with her, at least in a couple years. But this was one I couldn't resist. And there were many moving scenes-including one that for personal reasons really did feel heartbreaking.

But it's that thing, maybe, that Jes characterized before: that weird sex-in-the-city vibe that is kind of outdated period piece that belongs in the aughts. I feel she nailed the defining characteristic of Layne's oeuvre,and why I can't quite get along with it, and while this is a toned down version, it did still have that NYC-wish feel.

But it's shop-around-the-corner with a dating app so of course I read it straight through, because even when they are bad they are good. (Feel free to offer up recs on these!) And this one wasn't even bad. ( )

This adorable story is derivative of “You’ve Got Mail,” as the author acknowledges in her Afterword. She stated that she wanted to bring that story into the 21st Century by updating the premise a bit: the two protagonists fall in love, sight unseen and anonymously, not via email but via a dating app called “MysteryMate,” and by texting.

MysteryMate isn’t like other dating apps in that there are no photos, or even names. The app matches you with potential mates and you communicate under pseudonyms.

Gracie Cooper, 33, using the name “Lady” got matched with “Sir,” and they seem to have a lot in common. As Gracie explains to her best friend: “We both live in Manhattan, we’re both highly suspicious of oatmeal, we both lost our dads to lung cancer four years ago, we both put mustard on our scrambled eggs. . . ."

Gracie owns the champagne shop “Bubbles & More” opened by her late father, but it is struggling to survive in a world increasingly characterized by online sales. She has an offer to buy her out from her lease-holder, the disturbingly handsome Sebastian Andrews. But Gracie is resisting: it’s not about the numbers, she feels, it’s about family, her family, and her father’s dream. Gracie’s own dream was to be an artist, but then her father died and she has made his dream her own. She only resents and regrets it sometimes. . . .

Gracie increasingly turns to “Sir” for advice and emotional support, all the while having additional encounters with Sebastian, whom she likes more and more in spite of her determination to hate him.

Of course we know how this will end, but the path to get there will keep you entertained and interested in spite of an overall arc of predictability.

The story ends with an Epilogue that takes place one year later, and it is absolutely delightful.

Evaluation: The author writes in the Afterward that this is a story about the folly of first impressions, about optimism, and about forgiveness and growth. But it’s also just a darn good romcom that's a lot of fun. ( )

Cute homage to You've Got Mail (and all the previous stories that You've Got Mail was inspired by). ( )
