    9. I was expecting this book to be a mindless trashy beach read, and it was so much more. I actually really liked it. The story of a grieving single mother after losing the love of her life, and the aftermath that follows. I thought the author did a great job expression emotion through the characters, and I didn't think it was too overly mushy-goosy (like I usually do). Even though the book had somewhat of a fairy-tale ending which generally turns me off, I did shed a quick tear at the end of this. [...]

    10. I found much of this book improbable, and not in a good, fantasy-like way. The narrator is a young widow with two sons, so perhaps the central plot device made me uncomfortable. She was also a linguist working on her dissertation about the "Language of Love," but I found the supposed excerpts to be unscholarly and her career trajectory to be unlikely. I wouldn't pay money to read this, but it's a fine library selection.

    11. This book was about a widow who is 36 years old and thinks that just because she is a widow she needs to stop going on with her life and just tend to business. It talks a lot about grieving and healing and is an uplifting good book. I was moved to tears a few times and laughed out loud others. A refreshing book and quick read.Started 12/11/08Finished 12/13/08275pps

    12. It was a cute book, but it would seem like the editor wasn't taken their job very seriously when they worked on this book. The continuity and the grammer mistakes were so bad that they almost over shadowed the book. Almost.

    13. Dating da Vinci was a delightful read. Ramona is truly having a bad time since her husband dies, but she finds her way back to enjoying life with a little help from her sons, a hunky Italian, a handsome doctor and a host of other minor characters. For a fun, easy read I recommend this book.

    14. this was a way cute book. Took the lady from the grieving stage of losing her husband to one of living her life for her. Could be paralleled with a living through a divorce. I liked it - it was humorous and real to life.

    15. An updated version of How Stella Got Her Groove Back, this is an easy and enjoyable read. No big lessons great literary merit.just a decent story with decent characters.

    16. ainless read that interested me only because I dated a young Sicilian that behaved just like daVinci. This would be a good beach read because you don't have to think.
