Friday Memes: Big Girl Panties by Stephanie Evanovich

Happy Friday everybody!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

This week I am spotlighting Big Girl Panties by Stephanie Evanovich. I got this ARC through the Amazon Vine program. Here is the description of this July 9 release:
Big Girl Panties by Stephanie Evanovich is a rollicking and poignant romantic comedy about a young widow who decides to get in shape...and winds up getting her groove back—and a whole lot more!

Holly Brennan used food to comfort herself through her husband’s illness and death. Now she’s alone at age thirty-two. And she weighs more than she ever has. When fate throws her in the path of Logan Montgomery, personal trainer to pro athletes, and he offers to train her, Holly concludes it must be a sign. Much as she dreads the thought of working out, Holly knows she needs to put on her big girl panties and see if she can sweat out some of her grief.

Soon, the easy intimacy and playful banter of their training sessions lead Logan and Holly to most intense and steamy workouts. But can Holly and Logan go the distance as a couple now that she’s met her goals—and other men are noticing?
"I'm sorry, Mr. Montgomery," the pretty employee behind the counter said apologetically, "but for the next flight out, it's the best I can offer."
Friday 56:
"Absolutely," he told her enthusiastically. "The criteria break down into cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility, and body composition, which is the clinical term for your body-fat-to-mass ratio."


  1. I read many of the Stephanie Plum books by the author. How does this one compare?

  2. I've been on the fence about this one, but I am very curious. Great excerpts! Thanks for sharing...and here's MY FRIDAY MEMES POST

  3. Neither snippets really do much for me, but I like the cheeky cuteness of the cover.
    Happy weekend!
