The Girl Most Likely

Class of 85

I thought The Girl Most Likely was a pretty good book. It has good dialogue and the story progressed nicely. It wasn’t one I could visualize all too easily. The characters matured nicely.

Cara just received the announcement for her high school reunion. She doesn’t want to go because of her failed marriage and the weight she’s gained. Her daughters convince her that she should go. She decides to go but knows she must first lose some weight.

Finn is a personal trainer and has set out to help Cara lose weight. Cara suddenly stops going to the gym and Finn has to convince her that she needs to do this for herself. Finn shows Cara that she’s the same person no matter her weight. Finn realizes that to win Cara’s heart he has to convince her that weight and age are just numbers.

Book Blurb for The Girl Most Likely

Cara McLeod, the girl most likely to have the perfect marriage, is now divorced and, in her own words, "fat, frumpy, and over forty." The thought of facing former classmates--and the ex-husband who dumped her--at her high school reunion terrifies her. Cajoled into attending by her kids and her best friend, Cara enlists help at the gym to lose weight and look great for the reunion. Personal Trainer Finn Cooper is more than willing to help--but does he have to be so to-die-for gorgeous?

Finn thinks Cara is perfect just the way she is. She's everything he wants in a woman, except for one thing--she can't get past the fact that he's eight years younger. To Finn, age and weight are just numbers. But can he convince Cara the numbers she worries about add up to only one thing for him--love?
