This is such a fun read! I really loved the relationship between Beth and Jennifer. Just like Lincoln, we primarily get to know them through their email exchanges. They have such a great friendship; they are very open and supportive of each other, and each have a great sense of humor. They are easy to like, and you feel like you are friends with them too. It just falls into place how Lincoln could feel such an attraction to a person through their email; by only knowing how she feels and thinks and not having any idea of what she looks like. You can also see Lincoln's dilemma, because how could he possibly approach her knowing all that he already knows about her? Lincoln is a great character. He has his own issues, almost like he has been stunted in his social development as an adult. However he really starts to re-evaluate where he is in his life and starts to make some positive changes. It makes him even more endearing, and you really want him to have something really good.... even if the situation looks impossible to overcome.
I really enjoyed this book. I was honestly laughing out loud on page 2! It is a great, light read - perfect sitting poolside, or even a rainy day!
