Goodreads:  Waverly Bryson is a late-20s successful businesswoman who almost has it all: dream job in Sports PR, two best friends, and a bar where everybody knows her name.  What she doesn't have is a ring on her finger, and after being left at the altar, she's in no hurry.  Besides, she has plenty of other issues to tackle, including her wayward father, a new rival at work, and an ever-shrinking amount of personal time.  To keep sane, Waverly makes a habit of jotting down "Honey Notes," her own brand of self-deprecating wisdom and pipe-dream for a line of greeting cards.  As Waverly stumbles back into the dating scene (no stalkers or jean shorts, please), her personal and professional lives threaten to collide. 

Kritters Thoughts:  Reader - are you looking for a chick lit to curl up with this winter?  This is the one.  (Along with its sequel).  From the very beginning you fall in love with Waverly Bryson, a woman with a unique name who by the end of chapter one is left at the altar and trying to recover from the humiliation of it all.  A girl who has two wonderful characters to surround her and keep her grounded, these two were both hilarious and heartwarming at the same time.  

My favorite part of this book was the writing.  It wasn't too artsy or crazy, it was honest, real and true to the ease of reading that is what makes chick lit one of my favorite genres.  The language makes it current and I just love it.  
The other part that I absolutely loved was her journey.  As I never want to ruin a book for those who will pick it up, I must say it was nice to see a character who had a true journey from the beginning to the end.  In both her personal and professional life, she found true happiness in the end - a new happiness that I didn't think she thought she knew she could.  

A wonderful chick lit read that I can't recommend more.  For those who absolutely love a girlie book with a little heart and soul.     

Rating:  absolutely loved it and want a sequel
