Summary: All that popular Chick-Lit author Mercury Lauren wants is to have one of her books reviewed by the New York Times Book Review - just one - and she'll do almost anything to get it. In this contemporary romantic comedy, with a nod toward Pride and Prejudice she crosses swords and hearts with the Editor-in-Chief of the NYTBR in a madcap adventure that takes her from her home in Westport to a yoga retreat to a golf course in Florida. Will she get what she wants and will she finally be happy if she does? Only one thing's for certain: nothing will stop her from Pursuing the Times.
Review: I received this novel from the author, in exchange for my honest opinion, and I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Mercury Lauren is a Chick-Lit author who wants nothing more than for her book to be reviewed by the New York Times. Although it was a little hard for me to get into the story at first, I ended up admiring Mercury's drive, and pursuance of the New York Times. This was definitely an enjoyable read!
