Review- Love is a Thief by Claire Garber

Summary-

Join the quest to take back what love stole! 

Kate Winters is an ordinary girl, with a not-so-ordinary mission: take back what love stole! 

Kate Winters might just be ‘that’ girl. You know the one. The girl who, for no particular reason, doesn’t get the guy, doesn’t have children, doesn’t get the romantic happy ever after. So she needs a plan. What does she like doing? What didn’t she get to do because she fell in love? What would she be happy spending the rest of her life doing if love never showed up again? 

This is one girl’s journey to take back what love stole and maybe find love again along the way Feel-good, witty and addictive; Love is a Thief is the book everyone’s talking about. 

As addictive as One Day, funnier than Bridget Jones, as beautiful and touching as When God Was a Rabbit, this is for fans of good books, bad TV and long chats over wine. 

Review-

I enjoy reading a good chick lit book every now and then and Love is aThief was just that. Kate Winters is an ordinary girl. After being dumped by a french guy whom she thought was the love of her life, whom she moved to another country for, Kate has had enough of love. She doesn't think its perfect or worth sacrificing anything for.

Kate works in a magazine called True Love. After finally being sick of all the lovey dovey articles she writes a column called Love Stolen Dreams where you can write what love stole from you. Suddenly, the column's popularity shoots up and Kate finds herself chasing others' love stolen dreams.

I liked Kate. She was sweet. She rambled when nervous, was fiercely protective of her family and just wanted to figure out what love was. She was a pretty typical chick lit heroine whom we all enjoy. I also found all of Kate's friends and co workers hilarious. The way they chased love stolen dreams, each with her own scenario made for a fun journey.

Then we also have Peter Parker, he is Kate's childhood best friend whom Kate used to stalk, uh, follow around. She has not seen him since he disappeared all those years ago. But then Kate finds out that Peter Parker has kept in touch with everyone but her. Kate's relationship with Peter Parker was all over the place. I really like how things went between the two of them.

Love is a Thief somehow reminds me of Meg Cabot's Heather Wells series. It is a well written chick lit book which is set in England. I haven't read much of British literature so this was different. Fans of any and all kinds of chick lit books should give Love is a Thief a try.

  1. I haven't heard of this one, but the title alone makes me want to find out what this book is about. I haven't read much chick lit besides Sophie Kinsella, but I LOVE the premiss for this one. It;s fun, cute and entertaining for sure. I'll definitely check it out. Wonderful review, Janhvi! :)
    PS: I'm very curious to know why the guy was in contact with everyone besides out MC. There has to be a secret or something.
