Jacquie Stuart is a Manhattan single girl looking for love in all the wrong places. She is also a writer/editor at a movie review magazine, and an occasional features writer for a chick-lit magazine. Approaching her mid-thirties, she begins to wonder if she will ever find love that stays.
So when she takes on an assignment to write an article about a new way to find love, she begins to think she has found the way to happiness. By checking out the “roommate wanted” ads, she can find out more about a guy by studying his surroundings. And if she is lucky, she might find a love connection, too.
When Jacquie does find what she believes will be the perfect situation for her, she has to sublet her own apartment in order to move in with Mr. Right. But is he? How does Jacquie really feel about this man who makes her heart race, but who also seldom finds time for her? What will happen when Anthony finally discovers that the way they met was a ruse for her to get an article…and possibly a man?
Unexpected events cause Jacquie to question everything, and then, suddenly, she learns that the love she was searching was right around the corner all the time.
Room for Love was a fun, light, reading experience that fans of chick lit will adore. Especially if they also love stories about New York. The characters were appealing and felt like real-life people you might meet if you were living in Manhattan. The situations they encountered felt relevant to the times in which we live. I chose four stars for this one, though, because the plot was predictable and I had figured out the ending about halfway through the book.
