Review of BY THE BOOK by Julia Sonneborn

Available at your favorite bookseller on February 6, 2018.

Anne Corey is a professor at Fairfax College, a small college in California. Her life is about to change because her ex-fiancé Alex Martinez has become the president of the college. Anne is also under pressure to publish a book in order to keep her job. Her romantic interlude with visiting professor Richard Chasen is just what the doctor ordered since Rick has a publisher at Oxford that he can use to help Anne publish. Anne faces all kinds of choices in this romantic novel that is a good read, but it is also thought-provoking about relationships and the importance of good friends. Anne’s best friend is the comic relief for the book. When things get too tense, Larry shows up and entertains the reader with his lifestyle (he’s gay) and his pursuit of love that is unrequited. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, although romances are not usually my genre to read. This book was more than a simple romance; it was a social commentary as well as a relaxing and entertaining novel.
