Product DescriptionEva Perino is single and proud of it. Owner of The Grounds, a coffee shop nestled in the heart of a college town, thirtysomething Eva cherishes her comfortable life filled with quirky friends, a fun job, and no significant other. In fact, she’s so content to be on her own that she started a blog about it: “Why I Love Singlehood.” Yet when she hears the news of her ex-boyfriend’s engagement, her confidence in her single status takes a surprisingly hard hit.
So begins Eva’s clumsy (and occasionally uproarious) search for love as she secretly joins an online dating site, tries her hand at speed-dating, and breaks her own rule by getting involved with one of The Grounds’ regulars. Soon Eva is forced to figure out exactly who—or what—is the true love of her life. Sparkling with warmth and wit, Why I Love Singlehood is a charming and insightful must-read for anyone—single or otherwise—who has ever been stymied by love.
This book had me from the first sentence. How can you go wrong with baked goodies and coffee. I often thought it would be great to find a place just like The Grounds. Someplace where you go just for a warm drink and pastry and end up finding a family of friends in the process.
This isn't a book with a single plot line, it's more of just a story unfolding. Yes there is a main theme going on but in reality it was more like watching a movie. I found myself drawn to all of the characters and their lives and not just to Eva's. Though I do think through the coffee shop and it's patrons, Eva learned a lot about life, love, family and friends.
If you're looking for a feel good story that will leave you hungry for pastries, this is a great place to start.
