Chick Lit with The Regular Guy
MORE culcha with The Regular Guy! Today, CHICK LIT, novels that are romance novels, but not quite, because they pretend to be more literary or something. Sure, the Regular Guy likes books like 'Bridget Jones Diary' or 'The Nanny Diaries' or even 'Girls Guide to Hunting and Fishing'. You got a problem with that????
Janet Evanovich is NOT literary but she writes a great tale. Stephanie Plum is her Jersey bounty hunter and adventurer with a thing for cop Joe Morelli...and a thing for BAD BOY Ranger. Her books are hysterical and how could there already be 14 (plus!) of these?
Apparently the author started writing romance novels to finance her son's college education, and she found she was good at it, and developed this series which is HUGELY succesful. Tres satisfying.
