With the busy holiday season ahead, why not sit down with a quick read and a light romance that will lift your spirits, make you laugh, and help you believe in love.
In Very Sincerely Yours by Kerry Winfrey, a nearly 30-year-old Theodora “Teddy” Phillips spends her days surrounded by toys, working at a Columbus, Ohio vintage toy store. She is stuck in a rut with her job and now that she’s been dumped by her long-time boyfriend, she feels even more embarrassed about her lack of future plans. Teddy wallows in her misery by eating plenty of ice cream and binge-watching her guilty pleasure: episodes of Everett’s Place, a local children’s show hosted by Everett St. James, the gorgeous guy who has all the right answers for the kids on his TV show.
On impulse, Teddy writes to Everett, asking for advice on her own life, never expecting an answer. Meanwhile, Everett, who indeed feels like he has his own dream job, is still looking for that missing “something.” When Everett gets a letter from Theodora he is drawn to her vulnerability and a delightful correspondence is born between them.
With witty characters and plenty of heart, this novel about love, family and friendship is a sweet story of self discovery that will put a smile on your face. Pick up Very Sincerely Yours for a charming and chaste romance for anyone who (still) doesn’t know what they want to be when they grow up.
