Good In Bed is the debut novel by Jennifer Weiner. It also started the trend in Women’s Fiction known as Chick Lit. I only recently read this novel. Of course it is great for the beach! Aren’t all her books?
Candice (Cannie) Shapiro is about to get some bad news. Samantha Her friend tells her about the new column in Moxie by her exboyfriend Bruce. Is he Cannie's ex? She thought that they were just taking a “break.” It appears to be more than a break and is meticulous in covering their relationship, for his job. Cannie finds herself a free woman but will she ever find respect or value by others? She examines herself and decides a diet will be a great place to start. Will these changes that Cannie pursue provide her happiness? Could a little surprise change her life for the better?
I liked Good in Bed, Jennifer Weiner’s debut. I have enjoyed seeing how much she has grown as a writer over the years. She picked a topic that she knows well. It created an enjoyable read with characters you could get to know. There was an interesting theme for the novel. You never know where life will take you or who you will meet regardless of your size or circumstance. As always with any Jennifer Weiner novel the reader will find entertainment and humor.
I look forward to reading the next upcoming novel from Jennifer Weiner.
