This book is also a bit of genre-bender, which is cool. There’s a little bit of something here for fans of satire, mystery, chick lit and romance. And it works really well as the first book in a series in all of those categories. Mostly.
I did have a few nitpicks that lowered my rating a bit:
Minor gripes aside, this was an overall fun, light story from a talented author that’s definitely worth a read.

Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
It doesn’t necessarily contribute, but it’s not really strong enough to crush it, either.
Other reading suggestions
I’d probably check out the author’s backlist. But for funny stories with a bit of mystery to them, my reading tastes tend to fall into the paranormal category, where the Darynda Jones Charley Davidson series.
