33 Valentines is a fun, smart story set in Boston during the gloomy month of February. Sophie hates February and Valentine's Day, but not for the usual reasons a person might dislike a winter month or sappy holiday. When she finds out Sam, her best friend and dream guy, has a date on Valentine's Day with someone he describes as his dream girl, she thinks things can't get worse. Any good reader knows that as soon as it seems like things can't get worse, they do.
Sophie is a charming character. She's witty and easy to relate to. In some ways she reminds me of Bridget Jones, funny, sweet, and not quite ready to be a grown up--even though she's 33 years old. I was rooting for her even when some of her actions made me want to talk some sense into her.
The best part of 33 Valentines is how genuine it feels. Monahan portrays her characters with so much heart that they feel like real people, the kind of people you want to grab a cup of coffee with.
