Back in the Burbs caught my attention a while back. The title for some reason stood out and made me want to read it. I know the title is is very simple, but it’s really what made me add it to my TBR.
While reading this book, I didn’t get much of a romance vibe honestly. Mallory is going through a divorce with her husband who she caught cheating. Mallory is a mess, to put it bluntly. Meanwhile, she has men in her life who essentially complicate her trying to get her life together and fixing her house.
A lot of this life is really focusing on Mallory getting her life back after a divorce. Since I am not a huge chick-lit or women’s fiction kind of reader, I didn’t really like this book much. It’s not that it’s a terrible read, but it wasn’t giving romance and it just wasn’t for me. Sometimes I find myself really wanting to like a book, but this one, I just couldn’t.
