The Rules of Love and Grammar

51Bpv+L3o2LEven the cover of The Rules of Love and Grammar by Mary Simses looks like a book that should be read in Maine. While it takes place in coastal Connecticut, the feeling is the same: summer and the shore. Grace has returned home after losing her boyfriend, her job, and her apartment. While home, she faces the demons of her sister’s untimely death and memories of an old love. At the same time, she creates new avenues for employment and mends ties with her family. The book was an easy summer read, but was too predictable ( you knew who she would end up with from early pages) and the author dangled the cause of Grace’s sister’s death over and over until you almost didn’t want to know how she died. So, nothing amazing, but a good way to while away the summer hours.
