Seventeen-year-old Darcy Covington never had to worry about money or where her next shopping spree was coming from. Even her dog ate gourmet. Then one day, Darcy’s car is repossessed from the parking lot of her elite private school. As her father’s business hit the skids, Dad didn’t just skip town, he bailed on his family.Fortunately, Darcy’s uncle owns a thrift shop where she can hide out from the world. There’s also Lucas, the wickedly hot fix-it guy she can’t stop crushing on, even if she’s not sure they’ll ever get out of the friend zone. But it’s here among the colorful characters of her uncle’s world that Darcy begins to see something more in herself...if she has the courage to follow it.
“How (Not) to Fall in Love” by Lisa Brown Roberts was a very sweet read that was fast and easy to read. I found myself to be addicted with this story. Darcy Covington’s dad disappears and causes Darcy’s world to go into chaos. Darcy seems to have a level head on her shoulders because she deals with everything going on in her life so well. I really wish I personally could handle things as well as Darcy.
I think this story was written really well. It was creative and fun. I loved the characters. I thought they were great. I felt like this was more of a coming of age story than anything. Each character has to go through something and has to conquer whatever is going on in their lives. I loved being able to watch the characters grow and become more mature versions of themselves.
It was very lovely to read a story that is pretty realistic. This story is so sweet. I just loved it. Getting to know each character was great. They were so much fun. Roberts is great at writing characters. I think the characters really made this book so I hope Roberts continues focusing on having fantastic characters.
