If We Lived Here
By Lindsey J Palmer
Review by Heidi Lynn
First, I would like to thank Netgalley, Lindsey J Palmer, and Kensington Publishing Corporation for providing me this book so I may bring you this review.
Emma Fiet and Nicolas O’Hare were looking for their dream house. The two had been dating for three years and wanted to live together. They saw a house that they absolutely loved via Craigslist. As a reader I could understand why Emma was so excited about this place! One catch-the land lady had a funny feeling about the couple not being married. However, she was going to take a chance on them.
They had some really cute passages that I liked in the book. “Or a ball pit,“ he said. “Like a Chuck E. Cheese’s?” “Exactly.” “What about a yoga nook?” “Or we could rent it out to a small family of immigrants.” “Or to a heavy metal band, for their practice space.”
“You could bathe an elephant in there,” Nick said. “But you kids wouldn’t try a stunt like that?” Mrs. Caroline asked, her tone inscrutable. “You mean, would we locate an elephant in need of a bath, transport him, or her up to the stairs to this apartment and---“ “Of course not,” Emma said, cutting Nick off. “We’re very responsible.”
“We’ll just have to wait and see weather we’ll get our mancave-storage-space-nursery-ball-pit-heavy-metal-band-practiceroom.”
Emma was my favorite character in the book! She was like a kid in a candy store when it came for looking for apartments. She was the one whom decided that she and Nick should live together.
Nick did some stupid things that I just wanted to smack him. Poor Emma I thought while reading those passages.
After reading this book I am interested in reading more from this author.
If I Lived Here by Lindsey J. Palmer gets 4.5 out of 5 kisses from me.
