This is a delightful story that is at times a riot (the laughing out loud in public kind of humor) and at others poignantly sad. Callie makes the most of what life hands her but doesn't take a stand for herself when it comes to the men in her life. When she finally learns she's just fine as is, she manages to get all she ever wanted. I wasn't expecting this book to be so cleverly written and with such humor. Callie's family and friends provide much comic relief throughout the story, which balances the unfairness surrounding her in her work and love life. Her triumph over a pointless unrequited love for Mark is a journey that you'll find equally as frustrating as the success in the end. Even Ian has his flaws but has the sense to look deeper than what Callie provides on the surface. This wasn't the light fare I was expecting and it was a delight to read. I highly recommend this book and I plan to read more from this author.
