At first glance, you think Libby in Love Me for Me is going to be one of those difficult to like city slickers who pop up in novels, TV shows and movies–you know the ones I mean–like Eva Gabor’s character in Green Acres who is too glamorous for this little town–but we soon learn that first impressions aren’t always correct. We learn that Libby grew up in White Stone (a town that reminds me a lot of the little town where I spent many childhood summers in Virginia) and that she is returning to her hometown rather reluctantly after losing her NYC job and fiancé.
While Libby tries to get her life in order, she reencounters Pete, the hometown boy who broke her heart, and rediscovers what she loves about the town and the people there. She gets the chance to be herself–not the girl she has had to become in New York–and to right a few wrongs along the way.
A lighthearted story that you’ll zip through and wish were just a wee bit longer so you could stay in White Stone for an even longer visit. Two thumbs up, Jenny!
