Cutting Loose

Cutting Loose by Susan Andersen

What was this book about?

Jane, Ava, and Poppy inherit a mansion and all of its contents from a dear old friends of theirs. Their own friendship had been formed many years before when they got everything they needed from each other – if not from their families.

Each woman has a task to help bring this mansion back to order. Jane, a museum curator, is in charge of taking all the old collections that had been donated to her museum and catalog them – getting them ready for an exhibit. But once she meets Devlin she can’t keep her mind on the job. Dev is everything she always told herself she didn’t want – and yet she can’t stop thinking about him (neither can he).

Can Jane put aside her preconceived notions and let herself be in a relationship with him? What about her collection? Where are some of the pieces going to? Is there someone out to get her and ruin this for her?

What did you think about the book?

For a fun, flirty, romance novel – this was just what the doctor ordered. The main character was someone you could identify with. She hadn’t had the perfect life, she has best friends who love her so much, and she has ideas of where her life is going. Of course that isn’t how life usually works. Throw in a believable sub-plot of a mystery/theft going on and a man who is hot and you have this book in a nutshell.

You like her and you like Dev. In fact while reading the book I was sad that so many of his family were married (it meant we couldn’t see more books about them). They were so much fun! I love the back and forth snarky comments that were between Jane and Dev, and even their families.

So if you are looking for something light and entertaining this will definitely be the book for you. I was even a little disappointed when I went to Susan Andersen’s website and found out I have till next Summer before I will get Poppy’s book. I wanted it now!

What genre would you consider this?


Question for you:
Do you have a big family? Or small family? How does that impact how you view relationships?
