This request comes from Anne, who clearly read one hell of a book.
I’m looking for a book I read about a year ago at a friend’s cottage. I
cannot for the life of me remember the title or the author, but I’d really
like to find it again.
So, it was a fairly recent book (I’d guess 5 years?).
The heroine has been kept under lock and key in a secret underground layer
by her parents after her sister is killed (possibly also a brother? There
was a bunch of sibling death) The book opens with her escaping and going to
a bar where she meets the hero who owns the bar. She is trying to complete
all the goals on a list her sister came up with before dying, which includes
things like getting very dunk and having sex (this leads to hilarity as the
heroine asks the hero, and any reasonably attractive male, if they will have
a one night stand with her).
The bar-tending hero takes her under his wing and decides to take care of
her even though he is definitely not even a little bit interested in her
because his last girlfriend was rich and also a bitch, therefore all rich
girls are bitches and should be avoided.
There is a second plot line involving undercover FBI agents (one of them
turns out to be the sister who didn’t die but went into witness protection)
and the bar-tender’s best friend.
The heroine also hires black kid on roller blades who tries to steal her
purse as her personal assistant, much to everyone’s confusion.
Anyways, I’ve tried googling all the bits I could remember without any luck
so I’m hoping the Bitchery will be able to help me out.
What a great plot device: a bucket list that includes getting drunk and getting it on! Anyone remember this book?
