My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I haven’t read the other books in this series (with the exception of the intro to the series “The Best Is Yet to Come: A Romantic Comedy (The Best Girls Book 0)”) – I was initially concerned that it might be an issue jumping into book four over book one first but the read came to me by recommendation and I had the time so I wanted to get into it.
While there were some references to the other books (and likely some inside commentary that I missed from not reading them first) this is a very good story that stands on its own despite the character history that is likely there from prior books.
Grace, the lead “Best Girl” in this book is a quirky character; she lives life fully but works very hard to avoid complications (like serious relationships) and her efforts to avoid them become particularly complicated when she falls hard for Brad. Her efforts to end the relationship (because she feels too much for him) become lightly comical and the involvement of the ensemble characters (mostly family) to try to help out adds to the fun of the entire story.
Reading romantic comedies isn’t my norm but I found this story engaging, the characters down to Earth, and the life situations very real so it was easy to get involved with the story and enjoy it.
I recommend “Best Foot Forward: A Romantic Comedy (The Best Girls Book 4)” by Tamie Dearen – four stars out of five.
