How do you like to relax after a stressful week?

I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a pretty stressful week full of headache inducing tech glitches.  My absolute favorite way to de-stress is with a good book, which I’m sure you’ve all figured out by now. 

A great romantic comedy can take your mind off the real world and give you several hours of escape and relaxation.  Plus, there are all kinds of studies out there written by smart people showing that the healthy benefits of humor and laughing last for hours and hours.  Where do I sign up?

What I Did For Love by Susan Elizabeth Phillips is just the thing to ease you into a stress-free weekend.  It’s full of great romance and some laugh-out-loud scenes that will make you fall in love with these characters and search out more books by Phillips.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading this one and think you will, too!

Here is the back of the book description:
How did this happen? Georgie York, once the costar of America’s favorite television sitcom, has been publicly abandoned by her famous husband, her film career has tanked, her father is driving her crazy, and her public image as a spunky heroine is taking a serious beating. What should a down-on-her-luck actress do? Not go to Vegas…not run into her detestable former costar, dreamboat-from-hell Bramwell Shepard…and not get caught up in an ugly incident that leads to a calamitous elopement.

Before she knows it, Georgie has a fake marriage, a fake husband, and maybe (or not) a fake sex life. There’s Bram’s punk-nightmare housekeeper, Georgie’s own pushy parent, a suck-up agent, an icy studio head with a private agenda, and her ex-husband’s new wife, who can’t get enough of doing good deeds and saving the world – the bitch.

It’s a paparazzi free-for-all as two enemies find themselves working without a script in a town where the spotlight shines bright…and where the strongest emotions can wear startling disguises.

What’s a great romantic comedy that you’ve read lately?  Share with us in the comments!

Happy Reading!
