About the Book:

When the most bookish, clumsy geek manages to bag the most handsome,beautiful man on campus – the man that all the other girls would happily have thrown their Kappa Kappa Delta sisters under the bus for – then it can’t end well. But Maggie has beaten the odds and is ten years into her marriage with Jack. However, the pages in the book of fairytales are beginning to smolder and burn as she starts to question his fidelity.

Forced into action by her suspicions, and hindered by her over-sexed mother and under-brained friend, Maggie embarks on a search for truth.  What she finds, however, is an adventure that throws her directly into the claws of danger and will make her wish that infidelity was the only
thing she had to worry about.

My Review:

Loved it!  A quick read but one of the most delightful stories I have read in a long time.  This is the first book I have read by Julie Hodgson, but it certainly won't be my last.  Julie Hodgson is creative and witty and speaks of things other women can really relate to... sort of.  I must admit that I have never crawled under a bed in a sleazy motel expecting to catch my cheating husband red handed.  But that's exactly what Maggie did.  And while she is laying there among the dust and grime, a half packet of gum and a hazily slung used condom, she recalls how she and Jack met in college and how her life progressed or digressed to where she is today... all of this with humor and wit that will leave you chuckling and at times laughing out loud.

But keep reading because the story just keeps getting better and better with so many twists and turns it will make you dizzy.

ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE (AND A BIG HANDBAG) simply has to be one of my February Favorites!  Thank you Julie Hodgson for brightening my day!
