Book Review: Better in the Morning by Fern Ronay

Better in the Morning
By Fern Ronay
Genre: Women’s Fiction
Publisher: Red Adept Publishing
Book Description:
Veronica Buccino has a plan: marry John DelMonico and quit her soul-sucking job as a lawyer. And when he tells her he has big news, she’s certain he’ll pop the question. But instead of proposing, John informs her that he’s moving to London.
Heartbroken, Veronica feels lost. Salvatore and Antoinette, her dead grandparents, begin to visit her dreams in an attempt to steer her in the right direction. At their suggestion, Veronica takes a news reporting class, which leads to a challenging freelance assignment covering a conspiracy trial. She also begins dating an unlikely suitor: creative Syd Blackman.
Just when her love life and career are looking up, Veronica is tossed back to square one by an event that makes her question all her new choices.
Book Review:
Better in the Morning is about a young woman, Veronica Buccino, whose life isn't going exactly how she wanted. The proposal that she was expecting didn't happen. Instead, she lost her boyfriend. Her job makes her miserable and now her dead grandparents are visiting her dreams.Veronica decides that she needs to "move on", so she starts to take her life in another direction.
Better in the Morning is definitely full of drama. I mean you were hit with a biggie in the first chapter. I actually felt bad and embarrassed for Veronica when John told her that he was leaving to London. It was also painful to read about how bad she was being treated by her boss. I was confused at first when the author introduced Veronica's grandparents. It was a little awkward, but since the book is fast-paced, it made sense really quickly.
I would recommend Better in the Morning to any women's fiction and drama readers.  I give Better in the Morning four stars!
