Book Review: Waiting for Tom Hanks

*Swoon-Worthy* in a Rom-Com sappy sort of way. As long as you know that going in, and you want that kind of a read, you’ll be golden. It’s a fluffy, cotton candy, (insert your favorite sugary treat here) story and that may be just what you need this week. If you love that sort of thing, you’ll be thrilled to learn that it seems like this may be book one of a series.

Annie Cassidy is holding out for what she believes will be her perfect, 1990’s style, Nora Ephron inspired, real-life Tom Hanks-esque, man. She knows that he’s out there in the world waiting to bump into her.

While she waits, she works on her writing, until one day when a major motion picture begins filming in her small Ohio town. What luck. It doesn’t take long for her to secure a job on set and meet the guy who may or may not be her Tom Hanks. I mean it is predictable, but I’m not going to tell you everything.
I laughed out loud enough that people asked me what I was reading.
