Mad About You was another wonderful read by Mhairi McFarlane. She knows how to deliver the angst, tension, and emotions that I crave in a novel.
If you’re looking for a book that is heavy on the romance, this may not be exactly what you’re in the mood for. If you’re looking for a book with likable, relatable characters who you will be rooting for from the very beginning, an emotional storyline, fabulous wit, girl power and, of course, a smattering of romance along the way, this is the book that you will want to read next.
Mad About You truly is Harriet’s journey. Harriet had been through her share of tumultuous times in her thirty-four years, and I wanted nothing more than for her to find her slice of peace and happiness. For a woman whose career was taking wedding photographs, she wasn’t really on board with the idea of marriage for herself. A romantic she was not. She had her reasons (that I won’t go into), but to each their own, and as a reader, I just wanted to see life work out for Harriet.
I enjoyed the relationship that developed between Harriet and Cal (her housemate/landlord). It wasn’t a quick friendship, but rather a friendship that grew little by little as their defenses dropped and they spent more time together.
I’m not going to get into all of the details of the book, that’s for the reader to discover. I was more than happy to live within the pages of this novel, get to know the characters, laugh, get emotional, and yell an attagirl! as I fist pumped the air.
