The Phoenix Syndrome by Claire Gem is a fun and light romantic comedy that is a highly pleasant read.
The book started out at a steady pace, but before I knew it I was so engrossed in the plot that I found it difficult to put it down even to make a cup of coffee! This book is one of those books that gives you a feel-good feeling about the story and makes the time go by in the blink of an eye. I enjoyed reading this book thoroughly and found myself chuckling quite often owing to the author's witty, sarcastic and intelligent\remarks. I've previously read Hearts Unloched by the author and loved her writing style, but this book was even better and I found the writing style even more engrossing. I'm really looking forward to reading her next releases.
I loved the characterization and was able to connect to the main character, Lannie. Even though I rarely read books about characters above 30 years of age, this book proved to be a pleasant experience. I also loved the other secondary characters and enjoyed the background stories of them all. The ending of the story was perfect too.
I'd recommend this book to all the romance and chick-lit lovers and also to those who won't mind reading a warm funny read.
