Can a romcom-obssessed romantic finally experience the meet-cute she always dreamed of or will reality never compare to fiction, in this charming debut adult novel from Kerry Winfrey.
Annie is twenty-seven years old, single, and obsessed with romantic comedies (she and her mother watched them religiously, before her mom died). Her dating life is limited by the expectations she’s formed from these movies. She is not as open to new experiences as she might be, because she’s waiting for her Tom Hanks–i.e., a guy she’ll find in the perfect, meet-cute romantic comedy way. When Annie does finally meet her perfect match, it’s not quite in the way she expected, and she’s forced to reckon with the walls she’s built around herself over the years.
Waiting for Tom Hanks by Kerry Winfrey is amazing! At first the plot was slow, but then it gained speed as the male star came aboard the stage. Once he was on scene, I could not stop reading this book! There’s plenty of dating disasters to enjoy. Lots of laugh out loud moments, too. I also loved how the main male character happened to be there during those dating disasters. It was cute and funny. The whole plot was charming from beginning to end. A young woman lost her parents but dived deep into rom-coms is wanting the perfect rom-com boyfriend. Her friends try helping her but sometimes, one just has to bump into the right one. This had all the sparks, humor, and intense moments that made me love the story. The characters were unique and quirky. Overall, I highly recommend reading this book to all.
