The Good Neighbor by Amy Sue Nathan
Things are a little rough for Izzy Lane. Still reeling from the break-up of her marriage, the newly single mom moves back to the Philadelphia home she grew up in, five-year-old Noah in tow. The transition is difficult, but with the help of her best friends—and her elderly neighbor, Mrs. Feldman—Izzy feels like she’s stepping closer to her new normal. Until her ex-husband shows up with his girlfriend. That’s when Izzy invents a boyfriend of her own. And that’s when life gets complicated.
Blogging about her “new guy” provides Izzy with something to do when Noah’s asleep. What’s the harm in a few made-up stories? Then, her blog soars in popularity and she’s given the opportunity to moonlight as an online dating expert. How can she turn it down? But when her friends want to meet the mysterious “Mac,” someone online suspects Izzy’s a fraud, and a guy in-real-life catches her eye, Izzy realizes just how high the stakes are. That’s when Mrs. Feldman steps in, determined to show her neighbor the havoc that lies can wreak. If Izzy’s honest, she could lose everything, and everyone. Is the truth worth any cost?

Sounds like a great book! I used to read a lot too until I had kids, I love a good read when I get a chance!
This book is on my list to read! Now that my kids are older and I spend more time sitting in my car waiting for them to get out of practice, I sit and read. I'm on my 67th book for this year!

So, normally a book like this I would just pass by. However, after reading this post it seems something I could curl up to in my hammock and read in a few days! I love stories with romance and spin. The fact she blogs about it cracks me up!

I need to read this book! I also love chic lit and love spending my "me time" reading a good book.

Oh, I love to read. I am a lot like you, reading more children's books than my own interests. I am looking forward to reading this. Thanks for the recommendation.

A book that includes blogging? Interesting! At the moment the only books I read are ones to help my yoga and Reiki practice. I can't seem to find the time or have the desire to get into novels at the moment!

Oooh I’ll have to add this to my goodreads. I’ve recently fallen back in love with chitlit. It’ll be a nice break from all the race and critical theory in reading. Plus who doesn’t want to read about blogging.

Yes, I feel like my list of books to read have dwindled down to kid stories. It's ok though, because it makes me feel a little bit like one sometimes.
This sounds like a great book and definitely something relatable for many of us!

This book sounds wonderful. I always try to read more for pleasure but doesn't happen often. Honestly the last book I read was the 50 Shades of Gray trilogy haha.

This sounds like a really interesting read. I am always either reading or listening to a book so I'm happy to discover new ones to add to my collection. I'll definitely have to check it out.
