This debut novel has a healthy dose of both heart and humor. Evie has been working her patootie off as an assistant hoping to make it as an agent. Her boss reveals that unless their Oscar-winning client comes up with a rom-com script soon the agency will not make it -- and there goes Evie's promotion. She makes a deal with the client which requires her to meet someone via a meet-cute and describe her experiences as inspiration for the script. As Evie manufactures meet-cute opportunities, she finds her love for writing returning. If you have a favorite rom-com, chances are Evie tries to recreate that iconic meet-cute moment. The results are often hilarious and even more often down right embarrassing, but Evie keeps plugging away. Her cheerleaders include her circle of friends from back home and a mysterious widower/daughter duo whom she connects with at her coffee shop/writing spot of choice. For much of the book I was torn on what my hopes were for the ending. Once the final scene is revealed, I realized how well the author had kept all her balls in the air. This book had me laughing at times and at others reaching for my tissues. Now I think I want to rewatch all my favorite rom-coms beginning with "Serendipity."
