The (Un)fortunate Fall by Tracy Krimmer should be your next chick-lit read. One can never go wrong with romance, comedy, and books (preferably all in one). Vivienne James is an eager entrepreneur running her business, Exquisite by Viv. As a personal shopper, she knows how to dress people who may or may not know how to look fancy when the time calls for it. But when they start asking for even more personal items, things get a bit awkward. On one of these runs at the mall, Viv makes the mistake of bumping into Cal McDonald and spills the embarrassing purchase. Cal finds it amusing and hires Viv on the spot. He’s handsome, nice, and willing to overlook the reason for their encounter. Viv has the chance to launch her business into other spheres and build clientele. Then, when her friend makes a paper fortune teller to help Viv choose, fate decides to play along.
The (Un)fortunate Fall has the best caught-me-off-guard opening lines ever. The second I read those words, I was halfway between a snort and a full-blown laugh. When a book manages to do that for you, you know you have a keeper—that is if you like to laugh. Most people do. Tracy Krimmer sets the stage for Viv’s personality and the catalyst of the story in twenty words. But not let’s get caught up in this accomplishment alone. Krimmer’s clean writing is witty and fun. She pulls readers in quickly and keeps them riveted until the last word. There were no developmental bumps in the road or obstacles for readers to overcome. Krimmer leaves that to the characters for us. No heavy lifting necessary!
