A woman dumped by a guy tries to create the perfect life that will bring them back together, whether he wants it or not.
WHAT I LIKED
There is a revelation about 60% of the way through that explains some of her behaviour, a pseudo-rationale to her logic, but even it is really far-fetched. The initial incidents are just plausible enough to be believable, and the light touch that makes it feel almost like a Bridget Jones’ Diary type storyline makes the story seem all the more creepy.
WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE
She got dumped, and she creates these elaborate plans that all seem to go off without a “WTF?” moment, as they take place entirely from her perspective. But the light touch the author uses to make it seem like a chic-lit romance is so inappropriate. If the protagonist was a man, everyone would see this book for what it is — some sort of stalker / revenge fantasy hybrid. But even within the storyline, there are two violent episodes (one with him in a bathroom, one with his new gf) that are completely ridiculous.

THE BOTTOM LINE
