This is a humorous story of two inventors from different states who essentially invent the same device. They meet in NY when their patent is taken to court to decide rights. Sparks fly throughout the book both literally and metaphorically. It was an entertaining, light read and I really liked it.
The premise was definitely unusual; Ive never read a story about
a female inventor so it felt fresh. The characters were likeable and
pretty well rounded. I was trying to think throughout the book who the
female lead reminded me of and it was a childhood storybook
character..Amelia Bedelia? Miss Piggle Wiggle? Maybe a combination of
the two. So you get the idea. Kinda zany.
It is important to realize
that "Head Over Heels" is first and foremost a comedy (and a romance
second).Yes its silly but that's intentional and part of the charm.
I could honestly recommend
it for all ages, there was no cussing, no sex, no violence. It's listed
as inspirational but there is absolutely no preachiness in it at all.
Bottom line: I think Margaret Brownley is one of my new favorite authors and I'll be looking for more of her books.
