Helen was trapped in her life and she still didn't know it, after dedicating her time to a job in finance that she didn't love and kept her away from her friends and family while being stuck in a relationship that was clearly going no where.
The twists and turns of life take Helen to a life with unemployment and being single in L.A. where she will have to find out what makes her happy and what dreams are worth following. The road to rediscovery is a bumpy one will Helen chicken out before she finds herself? or will she get to know the fruits of hard work, trusting yourself and following what you believe in?
This story moves a little slow at the beginning but be patient its all necessary so that we can comprehend Helen's personality and how she got stuck in her current predicament. One of the holes I felt that where left on the relationship of Helen and her not so good boyfriend Mark is that he talks about how he blames it on Helen that their relationship ended, when in fact they both weren't really in it 100%, and it was kind of disappointing that Helen never saw it and in my opinion got played.
I found Helen to be a character that was easy to relate to and I admire her courage for working in her dream even when a recession is closing opportunities that used to be there not so long ago. The love story in it felt refreshing and fun to read, the only thing that made it loose some points was the authors wish to leave everybody as friends and avoid big relationship problems at all cost.
