review 1: This book made me laugh sometimes because the characters are so extreme. The author does a great job developing the characters. Even when I found them annoying or didn't agree with their choices, I felt that I understood their motivations and could understand their motivations. The story had tinges of a Pedro Almodóvar movie. All those crazy women and zany crises. The contemporary setting made good use of today's pop culture (reality shows, self-help blogs, social media, economic downturn, Perfect Mommy syndrome, yoga gurus, etc.). I found the ending somewhat predictable. But it would make an entertaining film, not one I'd pay to see at the theater but one to watch on Netflix. Kind of a Jennifer Anderson role.
review 2: Allison Winn Scotch is one of my favorit
... moree authors of contemporary women's fiction, and this book is no exception. Main character Willa has a famous self-help author father, whose defining theory is essentially that everything is fated and so you should just go with the flow. Perhaps not coincidentally, Willa is stuck in a rut - until her husband decides they should take a break, and her best friend challenges her to write a book together exploring the opposite of her dad's theory - hence the title! Great characters who are both quirky and real, and I enjoyed following Willa on her journey. less

The writing was good and the premise was interesting, but I didn't particularly like the ending.
I really enjoyed this book. It was well written and had an interesting story line.
Fast read; chick lit
Boring chick lit.
