review: misery loves cabernet by kim gruenenfelder

I've been waiting for this book ever since I stumbled across A Total Waste of Makeup in the library. Thankfully, it did not disappoint.

Misery Loves Cabernet still has Charlie writing advice for her great-granddaughter and working for Drew, but some of the other things have changed. She’s in a relationship (with Jordan from the last book), but he’s in Paris for a movie and the actual status of the relationship is a little vague. Enter Liam, a friend of her sister’s and an old crush. Charlie convinces Drew to take a part in Liam’s movie because it will eventually shoot in Paris. But will working with Liam lead to more than just a crush?

I completely loved the pieces of advice Charlie writes to her future great-granddaughter as well as Jamie’s (her brother) articles on men. My favorite piece of advice is:
“You are beautiful.
Okay, so in your head, you just said to yourself, ‘No. I’m not.’ Didn’t you?
You are beautiful.
Wait, no, shut up….You are beautiful.
Now, how would your life be different if you actually believed me?”
5/5
