Summary

From the bestselling author of Matchmaking for Beginners comes a feel-good story about becoming who you were meant to be all along.

Phronsie Linnelle was conceived at Woodstock in a serendipitous liaison between a free-spirited hippie and a farmer’s son and was born with magical wonder flickering in her DNA and rationality knit into her bones. All her life she’s been torn between the two. But now that she’s been betrayed by both love and the mother she once idolized, her rational side is winning.

So when her best friend from childhood proposes that they give up on romance and marry each other, Phronsie agrees. Who better to spend your life with than your best friend? Maybe the connection they already have is love. Maybe there’s no falling to be done. But immediately after they announce their engagement, she encounters someone who makes a very charming and compelling argument for revisiting romance.

While her even-keeled stepmother argues for the safety that comes with her new engagement and her mother relays messages from the universe to hold out for true love, Phronsie must look to her own heart to find the answers that have been there all along.

*Whimsical Love*

This has to be one of the most unusual books I have read. I added the Audible Narration and I have to say it added to the book. I found a lot of humour in the book with bittersweet moments.

Robert who has a girlfriend named Maggie goes off to Woodstock and gets caught up in the scene of music, sex and was drawn to a hippie type woman named Janet who calls herself Tenaj and to cut a long story short she gets pregnant with twins Phronsie and Hendrix, he decides to do the honourable thing.

After some time he receives some sad news he has to return back to the life he doesn’t want. The Maggie who he leaf behind takes him back but life is not all rosy.

The main focus of the book is about Phronsie, after a broken marriage and a string of bad dates she is disillusioned about love. Her stepmother is all about safety and her mother is all about spells and talking to the universe.

Phronsie’s childhood best friend Judd decides they should get married. He reasons they know each other for years and things will always be safe, after all they don’t need to be losers and have broken hearts right…. Meanwhile waiting in the wings is Adam, what will Phronsie decide……
