Review: Carrie Goes Off the Map

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Phillipa Ashley’s Carrie Goes Off the Map is a mostly disappointing British Chick-Lit/Rom-Com, which is usually my favorite combination. The writing is mediocre, the dialogue is weak, the chemistry between the romantic leads seems forced, there isn’t much comedy (or romance for that matter), and the hero isn’t quite swoon-worthy (which any romance fan can tell you is very important). Matt should have been a dream – a charity doctor, generous, caring, intelligent, and, of course, gorgeous – but his dreaminess doesn’t break through his actions or the dialogue. The story, however, was just good enough to keep me reading to find out how the two would get together. Though, in the end, I was left wondering if they should have. Oh well. It was free.
