Greene can take a character who otherwise would be exasperating and make her endearing. Merry Olsen and Charlie Ross met when his marriage was breaking up and immediately formed a bond — not a romantic bond, but one of deep friendship. Merry expects to find a sweet little year-old girl to pet and spoil, but Charlene is something else. Charlene is a super brilliant math wiz and not into girly stuff at all. The next door neighbor is Jack Mackinnon, a divorced father of twin boys. Jack sees Merry crying on her back porch — overwhelmed by the responsibility that she has taken on and goes over to comfort her.

Merry is way over her head and sinking fast. Thank goodness her neighbor Jack Mackinnon is such a hero. The woman is a big fluffy female menace who gets lost trying to navigate her own driveway and is a danger to herself and everyone who knows her. It took Jack all of about five minutes to figure Merry out. Well, five minutes and the fully decorated pink Christmas tree Every once in a while I come across exactly the sort of book I most need at exactly the point I most needed it.
Laid up with the flu for days, coughing up a lung or two , feeling icky and ready to do just about anything to brighten my mood and take my mind off everything, I went looking for a light romantic comedy or a light contemporary romance.
I was hoping for something on the empty-calorie side of brain candy. My sweets craving got more than satisfied by Blame It On Cupid. Flighty women like her usually annoy me pretty quick, but she was so big-hearted, so earnest in her care for Charlene, so dedicated to do as good a job as possible Merry was funny.
By the end I sort of adored her. And then there was Jack. Sweet, clueless, hit-by-the-Merry-truck Jack. I loved him. I loved them together. And I flat-out adored how Greene developed their relationship among some other very valid and sometimes surprisingly deep plot points and threads. They added a surprising amount of depth and quite a bit of meat to a story that could have stuck with a more superficial but humorous romance and still been entertaining.
There was just so much I enjoyed about this book. Call it chick lit, call it fluff, call it brain candy
