#43 My Single Friend

#43 My Single Friend

Author: Jane Costello

Lucy and Henry have been best friends ever since their primary school days. Now they're in their thirties, roommates, and still best friends. While both have achieved professional success, neither have much luck in love. Lucy never seems to be able to make it past the first date and Henry can't even get a date. Lucy and her friends offer to give Henry a makeover--if he didn't look as if his mother dressed him (she still buys his clothes) Henry may have better luck with women. The makeover is a success. Women are throwing themselves at Henry and Lucy does not understand why she does not like this at all.

I really liked Henry. Other than his clothing, he was an ideal roommate and best friend. The flaw here is Lucy. She was likeable, smart, and competent in her job but that just made her dating shennigans all the more frustrating. Lucy is so desperate for a boyfriend that she has a tendency to lie exaggerate about her interests in order to secure a second date. To Lucy's credit, once she realizes what feelings regarding Henry truly are she tries to act honorably and comes across a lot better. Overall, this was a good read.
