"Perfect Strangers" by Robyn Sisman

I have started re-reading "Perfect Strangers" which is of course one of my all time favorite romantic books. I read it for the first time about a decade ago, wrote a brief review in Amazon.com, and, a couple years later, wrote another review, this time in Amazon.co.uk, when I read it again for the second time. I was searching for my reviews the other day but I couldn't find any of them, which is quite a bummer cause I'd really love to read what I wrote back then. And now that I am re-reading it for the 3rd time, I just feel the sudden urge to write a review about it, again:

It is the making of a love story between Suze and Lloyd, who first, responded to one another as employees in the same company who swapped apartments between 2 continents, then as allies against a colleague who planned to dismiss Lloyd. Inevitably, through it all, they fall in love, without ever meeting one another. Of course, they concealed their growing affection from each other. Whhen they finally meet for the first time, their near love confession resulted in one of the most satisfying and heartfelt endings ever.

Please take note that this book is 13 years of age and the fact that this is a love story that blossommed via trans atlantic communication, there are many details that need to be overlooked. And once you do, "Perfect Strangers" is definitely an enjoyable chicklit.

This is the kind of book that makes you want to fall in love all over again. Robyn Sisman definitely sets a standard for the chicklit genre with her spot-on observations of man and woman in search of love.
