Review: LA Woman by Cathy Yardley

Goodreads:  A girl who has done something that is not all that uncommon...moved to a new city for a guy who wasn't worth it. She moves to L.A. and changes her whole life in anticipation of marriage to her business-minded fiance, Benjamin. After continual stalling on Ben's part to join her, Sarah eventually snaps and dumps him. According to her new roommate, Martika, Sarah is in the perfect place to start a new life -- L.A. Before she knows it, Sarah has become Martika's project, getting pulled headlong into a crazy, chaotic world of nightclubs and day jobs, where the only constant is change.

Kritters Thoughts:  With a little hesitation, I pick up chick lit because I have to be in the mood for light and fluffy.  Although this quintessential chick lit, it had heart and soul that made it more than just a girlie read.  A story centered around a girl who makes the decision to "follow" or rather move to a new city - L.A., where her long-term fiance is said to follow.  Will he ever move and will they ever get married?  The ultimate questions.

As a girl who has decided to move with a boy, it takes some courage, guts and many conversations to confirm that this is the best decision both for yourself and the both of you as a couple.  Not recommended for everyone, but if done right, it can build a solid foundation.  Off the soap box - I loved this book, even if I had to read it in mass market form!  

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
