Love and Other Subjects by Kathleen Shoop Book Review and Giveaway

My Review: 

I have spent a great part of my life in the field of education.  I also once chose a career path that was definitely the wrong choice for me.  So, I was very excited to read Love and other Subjects by Kathleen Shoop.  The book met every expectation I could have had and more.  I felt Carolyn's pain when she hadn't a clue as to how to help her students. The awful administrator she had to deal with.  The wreck of her life.  Then their is that touch of love that bit of romance and mystery .  Carolyn meets Jeep and right away you want this couple to work even if they shouldn't.  How they meet the conversation it all adds so much humor to the plot.  Several times I was cracking up laughing out loud as I read.  Kathleen Shoop wrote a story that it is not just a story it is outright entertaining.  Looking forward to reading more from this author in the future.  If you've ever worked in education or know someone that has I definitely recommend this book for you.  If you have not I still recommend it for Carolyn and Jeeps story is a great one too! 

MORE About The Book: 

For every woman who wonders if she chose the right career

Carolyn Jenkins strives for two things–to be the greatest teacher ever and to find true love. She’s as skilled at both as an infant trying to eat with a fork. Carolyn’s suburban upbringing and genuine compassion for people who don’t fit effortlessly into society are no match for weapon-wielding, struggling students, drug-using colleagues, and a wicked principal.

Meanwhile, her budding relationship with a mystery man is thwarted by his gaggle of eccentric sisters. Carolyn depends on her friends to get her through the hard times, but with poverty-stricken children at her feet and a wealthy man at her side, she must define who she is.

The reality of life after college can be daunting, the road to full-fledged adulthood long and unscripted. Can Carolyn take control and craft the existence she always wanted?
