Confessions of a Carpool Captive starts out with a laugh, and they keep coming throughout the entire book! I was hooked from the first page, the characters are relatable, the friendships are real. I found myself getting involved with the characters, and don’t want to put it down at all.
Elizabeth is hilariously awkward. She doesn’t do small talk. She’s a free spirit, who doesn’t think before talking, which was refreshing to read. She catches the eye of a co-worker, Finn, and through no fault of her own, ends up relying on Finn to get her to work and home everyday.
Finn is patient, kind, understanding, just a general good guy. He understands Elizabeth, is a bit mysterious, and a quick thinker. The chemistry between the two is obvious. The two balance each other well.
This book is a slow burning, laugh out loud funny, and a very different spin of a friends to lovers novel. Recommended for the reader looking for a swift moving story, unique friendships, and a well rounded romantic comedy.
