So Sydney lets her friends drag her into the wilds of Northern Michigan where Little Miss Lovesick, the loudest voice in Sydney’s head, runs into - literally - the perfect man. Is hot fishing guide Matt Engel the man to vanquish heartbreak? With the vacation flirtation behind her, Sydney is ready to start again. Soon after, however, a difficult - and must keep - client demands Sydney work with his new contractor. Yes, one and the same Matt Engel, hotter than ever and right here in town. But when Matt’s past comes between them, Sydney wonders how to prevent another broken heart. As the rest of her life spirals out of control, she learns that sometimes a plan isn’t enough without friends to share the load. Maybe together they can even help Little Miss Lovesick find what she’s been fishing for. EXCERPT: We were all going to die. My great escape into the wilderness of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to vanquish Heartbreak from my life was going to end in my early demise. And here I thought it was my broken heart that was killing me. We’d been driving for over seven hours. The last town snuck past us an hour ago when we’d turned off the paved road. Pavement became gravel, then dirt, then two-tracks. The wooden hand-painted signs with arrows and mileage that marked our way made it feel like we were driving through another world. Like the kids through the wardrobe in the Narnia books. Okay, that part sounded kind of nice, actually. Dirk would hate it here. No tennis courts in the forest. No skim lattes with soy milk and a sprinkle of cinnamon. And he certainly wouldn’t drive his BMW down a two-track through the woods with the top down. I sighed. This was harder than I thought it’d be, getting Dirk out of my head. If I could exorcise him from my head, I’m sure my heart would heal faster. I was so tired of crying, of whining, of wishing life was different. All I wanted was to settle down with a husband and a house and a dog and 2.4 kids. I knew exactly how I wanted to decorate our home. I’d planned the kinds of parties we would have. We’d be part of the Neighborhood Watch team, and we’d plan block parties for 4th of July. We were going to have the perfect life together. Then it all ended. Abruptly. Without warning. And I thought I was going to die. But that was four months ago. I had to find a way to get my life back again. Hence the trip into the wilderness. Then I remembered we were all going to die. Who knew there was this much wilderness out there? “How much gas do we have?” I called from the back of the fifteen-passenger van. I could just see the obituary. Ten city girls who should have known better died last week when they drove a van through the wilderness without gassing up in the last town. Yeah, that’s the way I can see my life ending right now. Great. “There’s plenty of gas, don’t worry,” said Patty. Patty McEntyre had organized this fly-fishing trip – an idea I’d loved before I became convinced of our imminent deaths. Patty had become my Mom-away-from-home since I’d moved to Traverse City two years ago. My mom and I talk, but we don’t communicate. Patty’s the one I trust to listen and give me good advice. Mom’s advice…well, she means well, but she’s a big Dirk fan....

    LITTLE MISS LOVESICK was marketed as a Christian book. I think it was mismarketed. Either that or it was written for extremely liberal Christians. The characters swore - a lot. I'm not talking mild swearing either, though there is plenty of that. There is also drinking--and getting tipsy--and plenty of ogling (wet white t-shirt with a black bra). I'm including that as a warning for conservative Christians (like me). They went to church twice, nothing was mentioned Christian-wise, and there is no faith message. The story, as secular (not Christian) was very well written and engaging. Might even be considered clean for the secular world as they didn't get any farther than um, first base. I loved the humor. I felt for Sydney - and even cared about her. I liked Matt--and Sydney's co-workers--and all the characters, really. It was a cute story. If you like clean secular romances, give LITTLE MISS LOVESICK a try. If swearing and drinking and thinking too much about sex bothers you in a Christian novel, then don't pick this one up.

    Little Miss Lovesick is a charmer of a romance book, and one I'd let my granddaughter read. The story is something we've all lived through…a lost love and the hit your self-esteem takes in that situation. The story is a tad unusual in that the reader is not only exposed to, the main character, Sydney's thoughts, but also to the voices she has in her head. Those voices are the ones we've all heard as we've lived our lives. This part of the story makes for some humorous inner dialogue. My favorite voices were Sergeant Pride and Little Miss Lovesick. I have to say this story will warm your heart and give you some true 'laugh out loud' moments. I highly recommend Little Miss Lovesick!

    I just finished reading Little Miss Lovesick and I have to say, it was a well-written, hilarious, sweet and fun story and I thoroughly enjoyed reading every page of it.I often found myself laughing as I agreed with the thoughts of the leading lady and feeling a little swooney over Matt, the main male character. While I've read some novels labeled as Romantic Comedies that seemed to fail to live up to the comedic aspect, Little Miss certainly did not and I loved the humor.Lastly, I enjoyed being in Sydney's head throughout the story - her emotions, humor and character were all very natural and realistic, which made the book that much more enjoyable. I highly recommend this fun, clean romantic comedy!

    I found this book about a quarter too long and too contrived. The ending was rather abrupt and it was obvious Ms. Bucholtz couldn't figure out how to get to the HEA she wanted. The heroine gave the hero a heart-felt letter which he found irresistible, but the reader never knows what it says. Definitely deus ex machine in written form. Unfortunately, even before this lazy ending I found the troubles over the top and the message a bit too saccharine. I wanted to like this book, but for me it fell short.

    Where do I begin?! I really enjoyed this book! There were moments when I literally laughed out loud and my cheeks hurt from smiling. I will definitely be recommending this book to my fellow book lovers! I loved all of the detailed descriptions. Kitty Bucholtz definitely knows how to explain things to where my imagination was able to paint the pictures perfectly in my mind! There was a part of the story where it was raining outside and Sydney was wet and cold. I found myself so wrapped up in the story that I realized that I was feeling chilly and was actually a bit surprised when I looked out the window and the sun was shining with no rain in sight! The characters seemed real and they were fun to read about. When reading a book, I always try to picture the characters in my head and these were easy to picture. I found myself wishing that they were real people that I could meet! Maybe not GT quite as much as the others though!!! There were times when I did find myself getting frustrated, but in a good way. Anxious to see how it was going to end but not wanting it to end too soon either! All in all, I really liked this book and can't wait to read another Kitty Bucholtz book! I actually got this one on my kindle but now that I know that I like the style of this author I'll be wanting to have these books on my ever growing bookshelf!Some of my favorite Little Miss Lovesick quotes"Turns out Mom was right about the milk and the cow.""Love is the most wonderful thing in the world. You just need to find true love.""If a butterfly flaps its wings in your stomach, will there be a storm?""I put my Godiva chocolate raspberry truffle ice cream in the freezer and pulled out a Healthy Choice frozen dinner. Don't Laugh.""My whole life is a series of the worst movie scenes ever.""That should be a new Crayola color. I'd definitely start coloring again."

    Little Miss Lovesick is surprisingly deeper than the title suggests. Kitty Bucholtz captures the spirit of a woman going through heartache, healing and disappointment, illogical highs of infatuation, and the journey of life choices with a fun, movie-like quality.Sydney Riley is a realistic, sweet heartbroken heroin readers can expect to connect to straight away. Approachable, unassuming, well-rounded, and funny, Sydney is a refreshing portrait of a down to earth emotional human being, made colourful by her vibrant personality and bursts of poignant self-honesty we can relate to.True to the genre, the author doesn't hold back on fun gushy moments or skimp on descriptions of juicy eye candy to the guilty and squeamish delight of the female readers.This Romantic Comedy is an excellent read, and cheerful balm to anyone who's experienced heartbreak.

    This sweet romance was filled with heartwarming and honest true-to-life moments. Not only did the story include misunderstandings between potential lovers, but also best friends, in a realistic way. Just making a plan and following the steps doesn’t guarantee success, as the heroine Sydney learns. I appreciated the depth of characterization that allowed for human flaws, and made the characters seem like people I’ve known. Wonderful, fresh voice in clean contemporary romance.

    Lovely character development Had me hooked from the first line. I don't usually like "I" books but the inside of Sydney's head had me laughing aloud. Really got to know her quietly seeking heart and her resilient spirit. Great read.

    A sweet romance and I really felt for Sydney. Heartbroken and left a little insecure from her ex leaving her for another woman, the story is told from her point of view, in the first person.
