Unpredictable-Eileen Cook

Eileen Cook
Berkley, Feb 2008, $14.00
ISBN: 9780425213964

In Vancouver Sophie Kintock cannot believe that her boyfriend of six years, anal Doug Chase, dumped her for a tall blond bimbo Melanie the melons. She decides she wants him back, but first must rid him of the model. Upset she meets kind hearted Nick McKenna at the laundry room and thinks he is cute if you like your men shorter than you. However, he helps her with her convoluted plan to regain Doug starting with her faking being a psychic since the Melons believe in readings.

Shockingly Sophie proves successful as people flock to her for her forecasting skills except the teacher-munchkin who assisted her at the start. She becomes famous working radio readings. However, Sophie begins to reassess her goal as she finds she loves being with Nick. However he has Cathie; so morosely listening to her conscience she refuses to try to break up his relationship, as she mistakenly attempted to chase Melons from her former boyfriend.

UNPREDICTABLE is an amusing often satirical contemporary romance that lampoons the psychic world. The story line is refreshed by the short hero who must gaze up into the eyes of his beloved. Part of the fun is learning about Cathie (read the novel to learn just how strong a hold Cathie has on Nick). Readers will enjoy this humorously whimsical tale of love so UNPREDICTABLE.
