Veronica Buccino has a plan: marry John DelMonico and quit her soul-sucking job as a lawyer. And when he tells her he has big news, she’s certain he’ll pop the question. But instead of proposing, John informs her that he’s moving to London. Heartbroken, Veronica feels lost. Salvatore and Antoinette, her dead grandparents, begin to visit her dreams in an attempt to steer her in the right direction. At their suggestion, Veronica takes a news reporting class, which leads to a challenging freelance assignment covering a conspiracy trial. She also begins dating an unlikely suitor: creative Syd Blackman. Just when her love life and career are looking up, Veronica is tossed back to square one by an event that makes her question all her new choices.

Full Review:

Better in the Morning follows Veronica, a woman stuck in an unfullfilling job that she completely hates and is pretty much just coasting through life. When a sudden change in her relationship status forces her to mix it up a bit, Veronica has to get out of her comfort (or should I say dis-comfort)  zone  and put herself out there to experience different things. With the help of her grandparents, Veronica stumbles to find her new path, and maybe discover herself along the way.

I thought this book was cute. The heroine is easy to relate to, the romance isn’t super raunchy and the nice little addition of her grandparents was fun for me. The writing isn’t over the top but is consistent and easy to follow. The plot is interesting, slow at the beginning but the ending is well done. A shorter read at less than three hundred pages, you can get into it and still have time to adult. If you like to follow a woman in transition finding herself and going from being stagnant to living, this is book to consider.
