Book Reading Bingo: Bet Me

If you follow my blog, you know my local RWA chapter is doing a Book Reading Bingo Challenge. Once a month (or so) I recommend books for a category or two.

Jennifer Crusie’s Bet Me would fulfill either of the following categories:

  • Dress for Success
  • Eat, Drink, and Be Merry

The heroine (Min) needs to lose weight in order to fit into her maid-of-honor dress for her sister’s upcoming wedding.

The hero’s (Cal) courtship inadvertently takes the form of feeding her.

MIn and Cal are three-dimensional characters with plenty of backstory and great sidekicks. There are laugh out loud moments. There’s a great cat. She likes Elvis (Presley); he likes Elvis (Costello). Chicken Marsala is practically another character in the book.

Even if you’ve already filled your Eat, Drink, Be Merry and Dress for Success squares, you should read this book. You’ll be glad you did.
