139. So Into You by Sandra Hill...

August 26, 2009
About the book: (from the publisher)
Angel Sabato has been in love with best friend Grace O'Brien for 10 years--but he's only just realized it. Too bad she doesn't take him seriously when he tells her about his feelings. Reeling from the rejection, Angel hightails it out of town.

Now Grace is left to wonder if her problems from the past are keeping her from opening herself to love. But she brushes these "useless" musings aside, concentrating instead on the work she's doing as an apprentice to folk healer Tante Lulu and keeping up with the old woman's good deeds.

Such as starting a foundation to help families still homeless after Hurricane Katrina. One family consists of 5 children who lost their parents. The eldest, only seventeen, has been struggling to take care of her siblings and lying like heck to the state agencies in order to keep everyone together. Tante Lulu and Grace take the children under their wings and decide the foundation will build a house for them.

Re-enter Angel, who helps with the construction. Unbeknownst to Grace, Tante Lulu has decided to try her hand at matchmaking again. And Tante Lulu has never failed before!

drey's thoughts:
Sandra Hill's So Into You is a heartwarming romance between someone who doesn't believe she deserves a Happily Ever After and her best friend, who tries to convince her otherwise. With a little help from a kooky little old lady who loves to interfere by playing Cupid.

I really liked the dialog here, it's crisp and funny as heck. Tante Lulu is entertaining, to say the least. And you can't help but root for Angel & Grace. Pick this one up if you're a fan of the romance genre. =)

This sounds like a good one, especially the humor! That's become my favorite part of a story. I've added this to the TBR list. Great review!

It's the first book I've read by Sandra Hill and it won't be the last. This is part of an extended series - real happy about that : )
