Review - Language of Love by Deborah Reber

Language of Love by Deborah Reber (Inside the book Love, Love, Love)

Official Summary:

Janna is quickly adapting to life in Seattle as a high school exchange student from Hungary. Or at least Julian, the cute boy she met in a coffee shop, thinks she is. The truth is, he overheard Janna using a phony accent, and now she’s stuck playing the part….Will Julian want to be with the real Janna? Or will she discover that lies don’t always translate to love?

Review: Deborah Reber is most known for her non-fiction, but as you saw if you read her guest post earlier this week, this is her first foray into fiction. Personally, I think she's off to a good start. Instead of getting one book...Love, Love, Love includes Language of Love by Deborah Reber (which is what this review is for) and Cupidity by Caroline Goode.

While I didn't belive in Janna lying to Julian and pretending to be something she wasn't, I understood her motivations. Her best friend was pushing her to do it, she felt better about herself pretending to be this amazing foreign girl, and as such, she became a much more confident person.

Obviously the truth does have to come out...and I think Reber handled it really well. It's full of emotion and drama and while you have some idea of how things will turn out, it's not all completely predictble...which I liked.

Language of Love is a fun, quick read...and perfect for the upcoming months when the weather is nice and you just want a nice book to dive into. Plus, with Love, Love, Love...you get two books in one!
