    The Right Stuff at the Right TimeFootloose and free spirited Merry Olson didn't expect that the guardianship agreement she signed on a napkin a decade ago would ever result in her pulling up stakes in Minnesota and haring across the country to Oakburg Virginia but when the lawyer of her friend Charlie called and informed her of his sudden death she had exactly one thought to get to his daughter as soon as humanly possible and wrap her up in as much love as the eleven year old could stand Not that the young childless Merry had the first clue about raising children but she'd been a girl of eleven once and she knew the pain of losing a parent at a young age so she figured she could relate and she was sure that all Charlene needed was understanding and love sympathy for her tragic loss and some girl bonding And that's exactly what Merry was going to give herUnfortunately it didn't take long for Merry to realize that she is completely out of her depth with the unnaturally reserved tomboy with the shaved head and over sized clothes and who wants to be called Charlie has no clue how to handle the soccer mom gig in an upper class suburbia so far outside of her ken as to resemble foreign soil and is terrified by the legal mumbo jumbo related to the court appointed guardian ad litem who she's convinced will judge her unworthy to care for Charlene Merry is way over her head and sinking fast Thank goodness her neighbor Jack Mackinnon is such a hero She doesn't know what she'd do without himThe woman is a big fluffy female menace who gets lost trying to navigate her own driveway and is a danger to herself and everyone who knows her It took Jack all of about five minutes to figure Merry out Well five minutes and the fully decorated pink Christmas treein the middle of January Still it's like his new neighbor is some mysterious vortex and he just keeps getting sucked in Maybe it's because she's so darned pretty Maybe it's because she's so obviously clueless but so determined to provide for his friend's daughter Maybe it's just because Merry touches his heart in a way that he hadn't realized he'd needed his whole life Whatever it is he's captivated and the longer she's in his life the he realizes he doesn't ever want her to get away Telling her that though may be a little harder than he'd ever dreamedEvery once in a while I come across exactly the sort of book I most need at exactly the point I most needed it Laid up with the flu for days coughing up a lung or two feeling icky and ready to do just about anything to brighten my mood and take my mind off everything I went looking for a light romantic comedy or a light contemporary romance I was hoping for something on the empty calorie side of brain candy My sweets craving got than satisfied by Blame It On CupidI have to admit as a longtime and proud tomboy myself I related a little with wounded Charlene and I'd want to be called Charlie too regardless than pink bunny slipper wearing petticure loving fluffy Merry but there was something about the woman that drew me in Flighty women like her usually annoy me pretty uick but she was so big hearted so earnest in her care for Charlene so dedicated to do as good a job as possibleand funny Merry was funny By the end I sort of adored herAnd then there was Jack Sweet clueless hit by the Merry truck Jack A bit of love 'em but don't love them sort at the start a guy still feeling the sting of an ex wife who cared for her job than him so he doesn't get emotionally invested he's also the guy that stomps across the yard in the snow cursing Merry the whole way only to shut the door she forgot to close or the guy going over to the dark house to find out why the electricity isn't working despite having a date or the one who is slipping into his jacket to go lend her a hand even as he's uestioning his sons about why they think he'd do exactly thatI loved him I loved them together And I flat out adored how Greene developed their relationship among some other very valid and sometimes surprisingly deep plot points and threads Issues such as the uniue pain of losing a parent at a horrendously young age gender identity teen pregnancy sexually transmitted disease the heartache of first love raising children in a modern age when sleepovers are coed the often ravaging but sometimes subtle damage that divorce and parents' choices can have on impressionable children and teens and several very significant and relevant issues were all touched on to varying degrees They added a surprising amount of depth and uite a bit of meat to a story that could have stuck with a superficial but humorous romance and still been entertainingThere was just so much I enjoyed about this book Yeah I had the flu and I sure wasn't feeling at all good when I read it but it kept me entertained through it all and kept my mind off feeling cruddy Call it chick lit call it fluff call it brain candy I'll just call it a whole lotta fun when I needed fun the mostReviewed for One Good Book Deserves Another

    WARNINGS I was walking around Wal Mart with my iPod in front of me reading this book and trying not to run into people or have people run into me Yeah that's how much I was addicted to reading this book Also there are a few sex scenes but nothing that's R ratedI liked Merry She was ditzy sure But she had her reasons She never stayed in one place or job for long because she didn't want to get too attached To a third party she looked like a uitter who can't commit to anything But if there is one thing that Merry has no problem committing to it's Charlene She can't stand the thought of leaving Charlene just when she needs someone the most Jack is swoon worthy to me but then again it's like WHAT? He is helpful and he definitely likes Merry but he's so adamant to convince himself that he doesn't like her I know why he does this but at times I just wanted to slap him But for some reason I found that I still liked that part of himOverall this book rocks I liked Greene's writing It was sweet in ways like for Pete's sakes and sayings like that Her writing just allowed me to flow from word to word and page to pageAddict's Last Words Blame It On Cupid I really don't see how Cupid plays a part but he is mentioned so is a fast read that I'm sure you'll likeloveTo Buy or To Borrow I don't think you will be disappointed if you buy this one I wasn't AND I'm sure it will be a good re read book

    Merry feels she is up to the latest challenge life has thrown her way An old friend has passed away and named her the guardian of his pre teen daughter Merry being single and prone to hop from job to job is OK with uprooting her life to take charge of an abandoned child But this girl Charlene is nothing like she expected and she soon finds herself in need of a lot of help Fortunately there is a kind handsome and willing man just next door who is than able to be a shoulder she can lean on But is he willing to? returnFans of light romance will appreciate this one though it is pretty predictable

    She couldn’t imagine falling for a guy who wanted 23 kids and the minivan deal The only kind of guy who’d likely tempt her would have to be as free footed as she was If that never happened no loss Life offered no end of adventures and interesting possibilities just as it was MerryThere was no way to cross those bridges until they came to them Together Merry
