Not Exactly a Love Story by Audrey Couloumbis
Review by Anna, Sonoma Valley Branch
Not Exactly a Love Story by Audrey Couloumbis is, despite the title, a love story. Vinnie is new in town, and by great circumstances he acquires a girl’s number. But not just any girl’s number, Patsy’s number, Vinnie’s cute next-door neighbor. He calls her that night with the total intention of asking her out, but instead he chokes and stays silent as she accuses him of many bad deeds. What started as a bad situation turns into a charming set of phone calls late at night where Vinnie and Patsy talk about everything, even though Vinnie is just the Voice on the Phone. But Patsy doesn’t like Vinnie in person, so how can he ever really date her?
I don’t usually like corny love stories, and I didn’t like this one. But, that’s just me. Not completely predictable, it does leave you guessing at times. I think it’s a cute story with a plot line that could potentially happen. If you enjoy love stories, you’ll like this one. Read at your leisure and enjoy the lives of Vinnie and Patsy.
