Today I am reviewing The Dr. Pepper Prophecies by Jennifer Gilby Roberts.
Blurb: 25-year-old Mel Parker has a few tiny problems:
* Her job is terrible
* She’s been dumped yet again
* Her ex is now her boss
* Her parents think she’s a loser compared to her perfect younger sister
* All her efforts to improve her life seem doomed to failure
* There just isn’t enough chocolate in the world to make up for the above.
The one good thing in her life has always been her best friend Will, who has seen her through every crisis from lost toys to pregnancy scares. But his girlfriend (who’s prettier, better-dressed, more successful and secretly evil) is determined to replace Mel as the woman in his life and how is Mel supposed to compete?
So what do you do when you’ve pretty much given up on your own life? Help others, of course!
After all, what’s the worst that can happen?
My Review: Loved it! This was one of the most entertaining books I have read in a long time. Yes it’s predictable and all but so what. I loved it anyway. It is so much like the romantic comedy movies that I love to watch. Granted it is a total chic read. I laughed so hard through it and wasn’t ready for it to end. I find the characters so believable and swear I have had co-workers like each of the ones listed. I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a light romantic comedy read. It gets a 5 star rating.
