From the publisher:
Discover the Washington Monument along with park ranger Vickie Harris who loves her job. But while life in the District of Columbia is exciting and fun, shy Vickie has resigned herself to the likelihood of being single forever. She’s never been head-over-heels in love. . .not even really been kissed! But when a handsome professor asks the reserved, research-loving ranger for assistance on a project, will Vickie agree? Will she come out of her shell long enough to discover that Love Is Monumental?

My Review:
I have a BA in history but unfortunately none of my professors were Thatcher Torrey's...maybe that was a good thing, one less distraction in class right? Well anyways I love this book and one of the reasons is the hero, who if you haven't guessed, is Thatcher Torrey, a hunky history professor. Did I also mention that the heroine loves history too? She's a park ranger in Washington, DC. These two great characters plus the return of a few who we met in Love is a Battlefield make for a great read, especially for history lovers and single girls like me! I can definitely relate to Vickie and her "pickiness" when it comes to the opposite sex and couldn't help but think, "Been there. Done that."

You already know that I think Thatcher is a sweet hero, if a little bit shy expressing his feelings. The twist towards the end of the book is interesting and I'll admit that I did see it coming but it's not a suspense or a mystery novel so that isn't a big deal. Without spoiling it, I have to say that the end of this story will make you sigh and is the perfect ending for Vickie and for me, as we are both chick flick fanatics (read the book, you'll see what I mean)! Book 3, Love is Grand is releasing this October and I for one can't wait! This series is so good!

  2. AWww, this one sounds so cute!! I want to read about the hero :)

  3. I thought book 1 was pretty good...just a little too sugary sweet. I'm still debating if I want to finish out the rest of the series, but this Thatcher fella might've twisted my arm just a teensy bit! :o)

  4. I'm bad about judging a book by it's cover, and I wasn't overly fond of this one, but now I want to read it. My TBR list is getting longer and longer!! :)
