Blog Tour: Check Me Out by Becca Wilhite

Check Me Out

Published by Shadow Mountain on February 3rd 2018

Greta loves her job as assistant librarian. She loves her best friend, Will, the high school civics teacher and debate coach. She even loves her mother despite her obvious disappointment that Greta is still single.

Then she meets Mac in the poetry section of the library, and she is smitten. Mac is heart-stoppingly gorgeous and showers her with affection, poetic text messages, and free hot chocolate at the local café where he works. The only problem is that he seems to be a different person in his texts than in his face-to-face conversation.

When the Franklin Library is threatened with closure, Greta leaps into action. She arranges for a "battle of the bands" book jam, hosts a book signing by a famous author, and finally, stages a protest that raises more than a few eyebrows.

Through it all, she slowly realizes that it is Will, not Mac, who she turns to for support and encouragement. Mac has the looks; Will has the heart. How can she choose between them?

Check Me Out is a contemporary romance--with just a hint of Cyrano de Bergerac--that reminds us that it is what's on the inside that matters most.

My Review

Isn't that cover super cute? I love it! I also was excited to see a contemporary romance in the Shadow Mountain Proper Romance line. They have some great historicals and I'm glad they're included contemporaries now as well.

I've always enjoyed the Cyrano de Bergerac storyline, especially the old Steve Martin movie Roxanne, so I was very curious how this story would play out.  Greta, Will and Mac have an interesting dynamic. Greta and Will have been friends for a long time. Will is in love with Greta, but she is not attracted to him and therefore not interested in dating him. Good writing, fun banter and an interesting story that will make you think.
