Sophie isn't crazy, she just wants her guy back. And posing as a psychic to give his new girlfriend a fake reading designed to break them up isn't going overboard, is it? Don't answer that. Faking psychic powers turns out to be fun, especially after a few lessons from Nick, the cute skeptic, who teaches her all the tricks of the trade. But her readings do a lot more than she could have predicted. Now she must decide whether to accept her rising stardom in a less-than-honest line of work-and whether the best option is trying to rekindle her old flame or finding romance with someone new. And, most importantly, she needs to figure out whether the answers lie in the stars-or in herself.

One woman who discovers that she will do anything to win back the man she loves and along the way discovers that she?ll stop at nothing to finally achieve true love!
This was a fun story about Sophie Kintock (I wondered if this was a nod to another gifted chick lit writer Sophie Kinsella) who?s boyfriend breaks up with her after nearly 6 years and Sophie?s not prepared to take it lying down. In fact, she goes as far as to break into his apartment building just to play mind games with him in the hopes of showing him that he can?t live without her and will have him running back, but while she?s in the apartment?s laundry room, he comes in and Sophie learns that he has a new love interest. I thought it was quite fitting that Eileen Cook named her Melanie and described her as ?melon-breasted?! Can Sophie compete with this new babe? Well, she intends to and fight dirty she will!
Sophie gets into her head that she can pretend to be a psychic and give Melanie a phony reading to scare her off. She bites off more than she can chew when one of her predictions comes true and she becomes a little too well known. While hiding in that laundry room, she also meets Nick ? the nerdy but cute psychic skeptic who, while telling her all the reasons why she shouldn?t believe in psychic predictions, inadvertently gives her the idea of and the ability to pass for one! It was fun to read just how far Sophie would be willing to go to win her ?true love? and watch her come to realize whether or not it?s worth it in the end.
The only thing missing was that the author didn?t really describe Sophie?s physical appearance. Sophie does describe trying to fit into certain clothes and the dreaded after-effects of a really good meal, and I got the impression that she?s a tall girl but she didn?t mention her hair or eye color or if she thought she was attractive ? those kind of details can really add to the connection that you feel with some characters, I just wondered if I missed something or if that was done on purpose.
Even without those details and the fact that the love that she ultimately winds up with IS predictable, it?s a fun book and well written and I?m glad that Cook took the time to entertain us with this cute tale of psychics and those that don?t believe. It was funny and campy and a well written story.
