Review--Chat Love by Justine Faeth

Chat LoveChat Love by Justine Faeth
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

2.5 stars.

**I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.**

Let me start by saying that this was a cute little love story, that I read quickly.  I give it such a low rating mainly because it was pretty predictable and I figured out what was going to happen 1/3 of the way into the book.

Lucia is from an Italian family.  Being 28 and single means she is practically an old maid.  She has a couple of serious boyfriends, but she has never found THE ONE.  One of her co-workers has recently found the man of her dreams on an online dating site called Chat Love.  When her married younger sister announces that she is pregnant, the pressure is really on then.  After pressure from her friends, Lucia decides to join Chat Love and try something new.  Her dates are very interesting, to say the least.  But you never know where you will find love.

As I stated before, this was a quick and fun read.  The story is cute, but very predictable.  The dates that she goes on are always dinner dates, there is no variety to them.  The main character Lucia is an Italian bombshell from the way she is described by her dates and her peers.  She is loved by all, but can't seem to find love.  She goes on several dates in the book that range from good to just plain weird.  She even had a stalker for a brief moment.  In the end, she ends up with the guy she would have least expected, but the reader knew from the start.  There is a part in the book, where I wanted to jump through the pages and smack Lucia for not knowing she was talking to the man she wanted online the whole time.

I will try another title by Justine Faeth.
