I am sorry guys. I thought I had enough prepped on this week's reviews that I could just knock them out. But I got a full-time job (yay!) and adjusting to waking up in the dark hours of the morning to drive across town is more difficult than I expected.
Part of the fun of THE LOVE WARS is that there's more emphasis on Molly Grant's job than I expected. The romance subplot is secondary, maybe even tertiary. It's all about Molly finding out what kind of lawyer she wants to be. I also loved that THE LOVE WARS didn't humiliate her as some chick lit loves to do. She embroils herself in a wacky scheme, but she manages to do so without breaking the law or otherwise setting herself up for a truly horrid fall.
But I have no idea what playing cards have to do with the price of beans in Cairo.
