Oh my, oh my! I just finished reading Hysterical Love, the newest novel by Lorraine Devon Wilke, and I must say, I simply adored it! It follows the story of Dan McDowell, a 33-year-old photographer who is happily engaged to be married to his adored Jane. Dan’s life takes a sudden and abrupt change when Jane decides she needs time away from him to think after he accidentally tells her that he once ‘inadvertently’ over-lapped relationships. Coupled with his sudden ouster from their home, and his sister Lucy’s insinuations that perhaps Jane is not his soul mate, Dan finds himself at a loss and sets off on a cross-country road trip to help his father find his own romantic match. Misadventures and funny situations abound as Dan and his dad meet the enigmatic flower-child Fiona, along with an interesting re-emergence from Dan’s own past. Dan’s carefully laid plans certainly are at risk of becoming up-ended.
I loved this book! Loved, loved, loved it. Lorraine Devon Wilke’s writing style is witty, pointed and funny, even hilarious at times. I must confess that I am familiar with her work from her articles in The Huffington Post, so I was fairly convinced when I picked up her book that I would at least like Hysterical Love. What a treat to find out that I not only liked it, but loved it! Any reader of fiction would enjoy this book, but especially those looking for a fun, easy, perfect for the beach or any time read. I can’t wait to read more from Lorraine Devon Wilke and expect to see much success for her in the future!
