Liz Foley is our extremely introverted heroine who shies away from people and prefers her own company. She works in Finance for a production company and drives to work by herself. On one fateful morning, she observed someone being pulled over by a cop for getting on the carpool lane with a blow-up doll. Traffic went to a crawl because of gawkers and as she got alongside the vehicle, she caught the awkward conversation between the driver and the cop. The driver recognized her; he was Finnegan Walsh, the new guy she met at work during his orientation.

Finn was new in the Marketing department and had the bright idea of carpooling with Liz but she adamantly refused. Her car broke down on that fateful day and much to her consternation, she had to finally accept a ride home from him. Finn is unflappable and eternally optimistic, and gets into her skin but an attraction was growing between them. Liz is the queen of denial and has built walls around her. She has been hurt and deceived in her previous relationship. She does not do well with friendships. Despite her repeated attempts to push him away, Finn seems to be the only one, aside from her mother, who gets her.

The author does a great job shaping Liz’s character and the history of how she came to be is quite solid and plausible. There is so much self-deprecating humor and the book was written like Liz’s journal which held all of her thoughts, feelings and doubts. The change in Liz’s personality was very gradual and she eventually reached the peak of her potential. She did it out of her own accord and with great influence from her friends. I like the way that the author built the personalities of their carpool mates, each distinct and had a story of their own.

Confessions of a Carpool Captive is a very witty and enthralling novel by Dawn L. Chiletz. It’s a very clever contemporary/Rom Com.
This riveting read takes us along for the ride as we join Liz Foley on a journey of discovery. Liz is a bit of an introvert, who likes the quiet life- her job as an accountant is just perfect for her because she would much rather deal with numbers than with people. Because of this, she doesn’t have friends. She is known for her RBF (Resting B**ch Face) and snarky comments. She drives to work on her own, as she doesn’t have to deal with people or be forced to make conversation. But when unforeseen circumstances occur, she has no choice but to carpool to work with the annoyingly upbeat and way too talkative new guy at work.
Finnigan Walsh is the complete opposite of Liz; he’s a bit of an extrovert, a little quirky, very outgoing, approachable, friendly, easy going, and HOT. He’s quite happy to carpool and has been throwing around the idea, as well as all the benefits of carpooling, in an effort to get her interested. But no matter how many times she shoots him down or how far she pushes him, he just ‘rolls with the punches’ and doesn’t let it get to him. His friendly teasing seems almost planned just to get a rise out of her and to press her buttons. So when Liz accepts his offer to carpool, he genuinely sees it as a boon; but Liz views it as a curse.
As more people get added to the carpool, the hilarity ramps up quite a lot and what ensues is a story you will fall in love with and won’t soon forget.
I am really happy that I discovered this book. It is really well written, light hearted, funny and refreshingly original.
The characters are fully developed, charming and likeable.

Liz Foley is an accountant. She loves her job especially because it deals with numbers and not people. She isn’t a people person, she is a loner and that’s the way she like it and how it has always been. She loves her drive to work, it’s quiet and peaceful although long. She get nervous around people, when she speaks to them she talk in one long sentence and with usually only one breath. She is especially nervous around Finnigan Walsh, the new, hot guy at work, who seems to be popular with everyone and loved by all and he seems to have taken an interest in Liz and she can’t figure out way. When her car breaks down and she has no way of getting to work Finn begs Liz to carpool with him so that he can use the transit lane and make the drive to work quicker. For some strange reason that she can’t figure out Liz likes Finn so she finally gives in, I mean what can possible go wrong?
I absolutely loved this RomCom book. It had me crying and laughing from the very start. Dawn Chiletz really had me connecting with the characters, I loved them all, yes even Kel. At times I was laughing so loud that I had my whole family asking me to reread it which had them laughing out loud as well. I found this story to not only be about love but about friends and how sometimes they can become as important to you as your family if not even more. I truly loved this story and if I could I would give more than 5 stars. This is my first book by Dawn Chiletz and I’m planning on reading more, if they are anything like this one I can see her becoming one of my favorite authors and this story is one of my favorite so far this year and I have read a lot of books already!
