Title:  Big girl panties
Big girl panties by Stephanie Evanovich caught my eye for two reasons. The first of the reasons being the author’s last name, Evanovich. I later discovered that Stephanie Evanovich is the niece of Janet Evanovich, one of my favorite authors. The second reason the book caught my attention was the title. I have oft heard or read “It’s time for you to put on your big girl panties” and so the title resonated with me. The way I understand the expression is that the time for wailing against fate is over and it is time to confront your demons. The main character, Holly Brennan, used food as a crutch and comforter during her husband’s final days. Now she is overweight and determined to change her life. When a chance encounter puts her in a plane seat next to Logan Montgomery, a personal trainer, it seems fate is lending a helping hand. Logan is, as all personal trainers are, in prime physical condition and snobbish with it. He is one of the perfect people and has difficulty in comprehending how life can sometimes overwhelm personal wisdom. Both characters undergo a needed transformation. Holly’s transformation is only skin deep because inside she was already a fine example of a human being. Logan, through his training of Holly, transforms into a better human being. I enjoyed this book immensely because it demonstrates that growth is always a choice.
