A hopeless romantic, Francesca is having her worst year ever. Not only is she battling writer's block after the success of her first novel - the story of a couple's divorce told through the eyes of their dog - but now her husband is actually divorcing her. To pay the bills, Francesca takes a job ghostwriting a memoir for Chicky, a spunky ninety-year-old who wants to publish a book about her late parents - a husband-and-wife vaudeville team who toured the country in the early 1920s.

As Francesca is drawn into the irresistible account of their unlikely romance, she comes face to face with her own troubled childhood and marriage for the first time. And through their love story, Francesca finds the means to define her own place in the world. Looking for a Love Story is a warm, wonderfully inspiring novel about a woman who has lost her way but who just might discover who she's meant to be with the help of a love story from the past.

I kept hanging in reading this, thinking it was going to "take off" and go somewhere besides backwards dips into to the characters' pasts, but I gave up halfway through. There were some really pithy, funny observations here and there about the protagonist's life experiences, and I found these quite enjoyable. But the story itself, I found mainly boring and rather depressing.
