A laugh-out-loud debut novel that will delight fans of Bridget Jones’s Diary and HBO’s Girls
Love by the Book charts a year in the life of Lauren Cunningham, a beautiful, intelligent, and unlucky-in-love twenty-eight-year-old American. Feeling old before her time, Lauren moves to London in search of the fab single life replete with sexy Englishmen. But why can’t she convince the men she’s seeing that she really isn’t after anything more serious than seriously good sex? Determined to break the curse, Lauren turns her love life into an experiment: each month she will follow a different dating guide until she discovers the science behind being a siren. Lauren will follow The Rules, she’ll play The Game, and along the way, she’ll journal her (mis)adventures and maybe even find someone worth holding on to. Witty, gritty, and very true to life, Love by the Book will have you in stitches.
“HUGELY enjoyable! Great fun, a gripping read, and very touching.”
— New York Times bestselling author Marian Keyes
“Love by the Book feels like a no-holds barred girls’ night. I found myself laughing out loud at every turn. Melissa Pimentel is a great new voice. She’ll go far!”
—Cara Lockwood, USA Today bestselling author of I Do (But I Don’t)
"Melissa Pimentel's voice is wickedly funny and entirely appealing. Reading Love by the Book is like taking a tour of London on the arm of an audacious and hilarious new friend—in other words, a whole lot of fun!"
—Meg Donohue, USA Today bestselling author of All the Summer Girls
"Wincingly honest and hilariously perceptive, Love by the Book is a fresh, funny, clever take on dating, relating, and finding love."
—Anna Maxted, bestselling author of Getting Over It and Running in Heels
"A fun romantic comedy (or tragedy, depending on the day). If you love "The Mindy Project", imagine Mindy in London surrounded by British hotties, fabulous friends, and way too much bad dating advice. A wonderful debut by Melissa Pimental. Can't wait to dive into her next novel."
—Kim Gruenenfelder, author of A Total Waste of Makeup
