Book Review: Broken Homes & Gardens

broken-homes-and-gardensWhen Rebecca and Joy started The Green Baby Guide blog in 2007, they were busy compiling all their best green and frugal tips into a handy book at the same time: The Eco-nomical Baby Guide: Down-to-Earth Ways for Parents to Save Money and the Planet.

Eight years later, Rebecca is long past her daughter’s baby days (though her frugality and eco-consciousness remain) and is on the verge of publishing another book.  Her first novel, Broken Homes & Gardens, is already available for pre-order on Amazon and will be released on April 28.

When I first read the blurb, “When Harry Met Sally for the Millennial generation…” I thought, “We’ll see about that!”  Well, it certainly is – and in the best possible way!  I was so absorbed in the will-they-won’t they plot I read it in one day.  Or course, when I’m exclusively breastfeeding I tend to read a lot of novels.

There are times when life calls for serious reads that challenge your intellect or encourage you to reevaluate your belief system.  And then there are times when all you want is to be entertained.  That’s not to say that the characters in Rebecca’s book don’t face their own troubles and serious choices.  Joanna, the main character, has her fair share of commitment issues, especially when it comes to Malcolm.

I would recommend Broken Homes & Gardens to anyone looking for a beach read or a distraction from work or life. And for anyone that is a fan of Rainbow Rowell’s books, Rom-Coms (books or movies) or that is looking for some entertainment after the TV season ends in May.

If you’re looking for a quirky, modern romance, give Broken Homes & Gardens a read!  For more reviews about Rebecca’s latest book as well as my official review, head on over to Good Reads.
