Love Ledgers: Confessions of a Plain Jane Accountant by Connie Lukey
In this entertaining chic-lit confessional, Connie Lukey chronicles a year in the life of a young Canadian woman determined to find love and happiness by her 40th birthday.
Jane Parker has just turned 39. Smart and practical, she surrenders an intended fashion career to become a CPA, because no one’s ever heard of “a starving accountant.” She’s a proud independent woman of the 90’s, but with a ticking biological clock, she feels she’ll somehow always be Jane, “The One Who Never Got Married.”
Then, a self-help book from her younger, married sister about finding your soulmate in under a year suddenly puts Jane on a mission. With the help of family, friends, co-workers and her dachshund “Wanker,” Anderson’s fictional heroine navigates the dating minefields.
Jane Parker is 39 years old. She feels the need to find love, happiness and a baby by the time she is 40. She gives up a career in fashion to become an accountant. With the clock ticking she feverishly hunts for true love. She is bold and determined but fears she will never marry. Jane also obsesses about her weight. After the devastation of her failed dates and sexual encounters Jane resorts to personal ads and online dating.
Just as she is about to consider having a baby on her own, a sudden unexpected event, takes her quest for love on an unforeseen turn. Now she will never chase men again.
Love Ledgers: Confessions of a Plain Jane Accountant is a fun witty chick lit read. Author Connie Lukey brings reader’s a delightful story of a year in the life of a young woman who is desperate to find love and to not remain unmarried. Each chapter goes back and forth in time as Lukey chronicles the main character, Jane’s, history with dating, love and unsatisfying sexual encounters.
I loved Love Ledgers: Confessions of a Plain Jane Accountant. It is filled with wit and humor. Connie Lukey has a way with words that draws the reader in and won’t let go. I laughed out loud on several occasions. The descriptions are wonderful and enticing. I was drawn in by the storyline and held captive by the tale and the dialog between the characters. Lukey writes with unobjectionable skill and talent.
This is an exceptionally enjoyable read. Chick Lit lovers will adore it. It reminded me of Bridget Jones’s Diary. Convincing and plausible. The dialog is constantly hilarious and amusing. Connie Lukey uses cleverness and charm in this super fun story about a semi young woman who is desperate to find marriage before she turns 40. You must read this book to find out if she does. The ending is satisfying and telling.
I highly recommend Love Ledgers: Confessions of a Plain Jane Accountant to all women readers that love a fun humorous wit filled read.
