KIRKUS REVIEW

A girl who believes in astrology tries to follow her star chart to find her true love.

Wil’s mother, who died when Wil was 6, loved astrology. Missing her mom and remembering her lessons about the stars, Wil buys into it completely. When she receives a forecast that tells her she has a limited time to find her astrologically compatible true love, she sets out to do just that. She knows she is not compatible with Pisces. However, she can’t help being extremely attracted to Grant, whom she’s sure is the dreaded Pisces, instead of his brother Seth, a Sagittarius and therefore a perfect astrological match. Plus, Seth, born on the precise day that her chart specifies as the best match for her, clearly likes her. Wil and Seth begin dating, but Wil just can’t seem to stay away from Grant….Flustered, Wil dives ever more deeply into New Age magic, consulting a psychic and trying to attain enlightenment through yoga. Still, with some drama, it might all work out. Woods keeps her gossamer-thin plot light and breezy, well in tune with standard chick-lit romances, counting on astrology to distinguish it from its peers. Her characters, largely white, come across as likable, and the book’s major tension arises predictably from Wil’s own misunderstandings.

A perfectly acceptable beach read. (Romance. 12-18)
