Love, Louisa

(2004)
A novel by

 
 
From Booklist
After Louisa's fiance insists on a wedding so extravagant that it depletes her resources, he stands her up at the altar. Since she works at the same office as he, she quits her job and moves into her parents' deserted summer cottage. Wealthy, divorced Dante thinks Louisa is just a spoiled rich girl; he doesn't know that she's selling her belongings just to get by. Louisa sees Dante working on the property next door and thinks he's a handyman, a cranky one at that. Gradually, Dante's opinion of the beautiful Manhattanite-turned-library-aide begins to change, and she starts to think he's not so bad, either. Metzger has created a humorous, heartwarming story with a struggling heroine readers can root for, a skeptical hero, a canine companion with as much personality as most people, and a small beach community where everyone knows everyone else's business. Renowned for her top-of-the-line Regencies, including A Debt to Delia (2002), Metzger has made a graceful transition to contemporary romance. Shelley Mosley
