    Delightfully humorous

    Laurie Lee is a library assistant and self-published romance writer Even though her co-worker and proofreader Ramona is less than complimentary of her writing, Laurie wins a scholarship to a writers' colony in the mountains. But is it a case of mistaken identity? College professor and wanna-be author Aaron Mite believes in "the superiority of literary fiction over genre". He has written two literary novels, but his father and literary critic Dr. Horace Flowers is very critical of his manuscripts. When Aaron meets Laurie at the writers' colony, he initially believes she's his literary superior. He's a bit thrown when he finds out she isn't who he thought she was, but their chemistry is undeniable, so they continue to see each other. Hilarity ensues as we get to see situations from both points of view and see how wildly differing they are. Will these two be able to find any common ground? Will their relationship survive once they leave the idyllic confines of the colony? This book provides an interesting look at the self-publishing industry, the discrimination of self-published authors by traditionally published authors, and the prejudices literary writers have against genre writers - to the extent that Aaron would actually prefer Laurie to be a nail technician than a romance writer. While Laurie compares life situations to her favorite romantic comedies, Aaron provides some wonderful analogies to literature. "Love Literary Style" is delightfully humorous, with Laurie's writing exercises in the style of classics being particularly amusing. It's a sweet but wholesomely satisfying book. Dare I call it a blend of romantic comedy and literary fiction? Make sure you download and read "The Story of an Hour" by Kate Chopin, the story featured in this book and available in a FREE anthology of Kate Chopin's works. I received this book in return for an honest review. Full blog post: https://booksdirectonline.blogspot.com/2016/11/love-literary-style-by-karin-gillespie.html
