I was a little disappointed in this book. As one who is irked by grammar mistakes in life (TV is the worse,) I thought there would be more of that. Grace's competitive spirit with Regan seemed a bit immature, but I guess that's what some people are like. I enjoyed the overall theme of a small town living in a coastal town. ( )

I really enjoyed this. Perfect summer reading. Fun, with heart. Definitely good for anyone who cares about grammar, and anyone who is into bicycles. There are multiple hot men to choose from. Personally, I was hoping she would get together with the movie star. He was the one who was actually always nice to her! I liked the parents and really enjoyed reading about her mother's work and I loved the idea of the "shrines." I would read a whole book about that story. ( )

Grace has just lost her job, her boyfriend broke up with her and now the apartment upstairs has had a leak that just happened to flow right into her apartment. Now, she's back home living with her parents for who knows how long.

Things aren't always going right for Grace and they continue that way after she returns back to her hometown. Lots of things and people from her past keep coming up, sometimes good and sometime bad.

This was a cute story, I did have trouble with the protagonist though. She irked me quite a bit, however, she did have some reasons and past issues which helped to make her into the person she had become. And, while she irked me, she wasn't even close to being the worst character I've come upon. She had her faults and once you discovered some things in her past, you could see how she would be that way.

All in all, I enjoyed the story with a lot of sympathy for Grace.

Thanks to Little, Brown and Company and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review. ( )

The Rules of Love & Grammar by Mary Simses
Have read other works by the author and loved the read.
Like how at the start of each chapter there's a note about a part of the language and then it's used in a sentence.
Book starts out with Grace and she's got 3 strikes: lost her job, her boyfriend and her apartment needs to be repaired for several weeks. She's back in CT with her parents and her mom is planning her father's 65th birthday party. She meets up with her long time girl friend, Cluny and they run into some of the guys they went to school with. Partying and spending too much money on clothes, that she doesn't really have.... to impress the director, Peter who she once dated.
She uncovers her dead sister's bike in the garage and wants to get it restored-it'd cost a fortune! She feels guilty that it's rusty.
Love hearing of the work her mother does as she discovers things in houses that she designed, technical bike things, and how to make a movie. Such treasures! Her father is the poet and everybody knows him in town.
She blames herself for her sister's death and for things said before she left the house. She feels she's living in her shoes...she needs to move on but then so much more goes wrong in her life. Surprise ending!
Like hearing all about the town's 375th anniversary as our town has just celebrated for a whole year our anniversary. All the events are so New England. Will she be able to compete in the bike race, will she confess all to her parents...she has a lot of tough decisions to make.
This story is about pain, suffering, loss and moving forward to find love. Love how the cover really tells the story and what it signifies.
I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review ( )
