Romance oriented novels can be a dime a dozen, but not so in this comical find. “The Dumpster: One Woman’s Search for Love” by Becky Due aims to take a crack at the traditional love story or romance novel and give it a modern edge with a smart dash of humor. With a personable main character and girlfriends with attitude, it’s not hard to put yourself in her shoes and tag along for the ride. Though Nicole steals the spotlight, her friends are no shrinking violets. Roxanne is the friend all girls wish for in some capacity…one that stands by you no matter the situation. Renee will tell it like it is…the speaker of truths not necessarily wanting to be spoken. Really with this bunch, it’s hard not to laugh and smile even through the bad romantic experiences that seem to plague Nicole.
In short, you’ll laugh, you’ll smile, you’ll want to act out a certain country song on the guy that treats Nicole badly…but it’s worth each pitfall along the way. A great read for female readers and their best girl friends….
