***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
The “She” Stands Alone, a novelette.
She can’t seem to catch any guy’s notice for anything. No, a pick-up pitch from a stranger gawking at her around Pump #2 at the gas station doesn’t count. And that attractive salesman at the one-stop-for-all-you-want store in town shouldn’t have been flirting with her in the first place, being ultra customer-friendly in an establishment notorious for its pathetic customer service.
Now, is this young woman’s dateless predicament unfixable? Not in the least. New plan: Sheridan Jones is going to date herself.
Ahh. The romance.
I loved the idea of a woman-scorned taking time off to date herself after her period of relationship mourning. The message that you have to be comfortable with yourself before you can open yourself up to a relationship with someone solid was clear. Sheridan, the main character, is a strong woman who with a healthy self-esteem and no baggage.
I did not appreciate the book cover, but the story inside was sweet and fun. The use of “She Sher”, by the main character, as the name she uses in self-talk, was a bit forced as a tie into the title and a plot point. Beyond those two minor issues, I would highly recommend this warm, affirming story to readers of any age.
