Remind Me Again Why I Need A ManAmelia Lockwood doesn't mean to sound greedy With a fabulous career in television a posh apartment and four fiercely loyal and wickedly funny friends she knows she should be counting her lucky stars But as her thirties tick by at an alarming pace Amelia is getting anxious about the one thing missing in her otherwise successful life a husbandIf it's not too much to ask the universe Amelia wants a husband not a boyfriend not a lover not even a mind bending one night fling but a wedding band and the Vera Wang gown of her dreams When she sees an ad for a night course entitled How to Find a Husband over the Age of Thirty five she finally makes up her mind to have it all an old fash. Maybe i actually needed those hordes of junior high school kids to take out my rampagey crankiness on because now that i'm working in a calmer library i seem to be venting it on poor feckless Irish authors like Claudia Carroll It happens once again i get a book in my box my hold notification on it with no recollection as to why i put it on hold at least this time i had a vague recollection of putting it on holdso That's progress So i set out to read Remind Me Again Why I Need a Man to find Mr Right first you have to revisit all your Mr Wrongs somewhat cute title but not exactly my usualshould have been a hint right thereI have a couple of problems right off the bat the writing is okay but the lovely girls as the narrator Amelia Lockwood refers to herself and her very tight knight foursome of friends are WAAAAY too much like an Irish version of Sex and the City granted one of them is happily married and one of them is a gay man but other than that there are even a few lines that if they are not direct uotes they are pretty damn close Another one is the constant need for Amelia or one of her friends to constantly exclaim things like you can't make this stuff up or if you saw this in a movie you would not believe it or to describe events as surreal either i'm living in the surreal world or they're really not that surreal and you really should not be pointing out how unreal your events are since apparently you CAN make this stuff up you are writing a novel after all aren't youor if you're not making it up perhaps you should rewrite it to make it believable i'm not really surejust stop telling me how unbelievable the whole thing is relay the events and let them stand or regardless it all just gets so annoyingAnd then perhaps i would be one of the few people to notice this since i am a child of the 1980s but if you are flashing back to say 1984 please don't make reference to a movie you saw that wasn't released until 1985just a bit of research would fix that same goes for other time specific referencei know you're filling atmosphere but come on In general the editing could be much much better i know i know people in glass houses and all that but this is self publishing after allI guess the basic premise of the novel was just off for me as i have never felt a NEED for a man a relationship or marriagei always saw those things as compromise and if the person came along who i felt it was worth it for then surebut i realize i am in the minority here Beyond that it threw me off that though the purpose of this class Amelia is taking to get her married of within a year is to track down her exes and find out why they didn't stick she never actually asks them any uestions about their relationship just encounters comic situation after comic situationOkay after rant you might find it surprising to hear that i found the novel somewhat enjoyable It went by uickly and made for a nice diversion and look at all the crankiness i cranked out And though i thought i saw a predictable ending i was presently surprised What do you know

The title was the reason I picked it up in the library Took some time to get into it but it grew on me and was wondering what would happen Nice book for some light entertainment it reminds a bit of Bridget Jones It does have a lot of typical UK Irish terms in it leaving me wondering about the meaning sometimes
