Join Quinn on a hilarious journey of self-discovery and dating. Will she find a beefcake or a rotten apple? Will Quinn find love or sour grapes at the supermarket? Quinn is a successful journalist who has been so busy trotting the globe looking for stories that she sort of forgot to invest in her private life. Eventually, she takes on an assignment with a nationally-syndicated travel magazine back in her hometown in the Outer Banks of North Carolina and is able to settle down. The problem is she's lonely. She's too young to be a spinster and too old to pick up a man at a bar, so what is she to do? Quinn sets out to find a man in the unlikely setting of the Grocery King Supermarket. She devises crazy plans to find a mate, no matter what it takes. Cue a whole series of misfortunes as Quinn is mistaken for a prostitute, has the whole world looking for her imaginary dog, and resorts to doing the strangest of things--like fainting in the bakery section--to meet the man of her dreams. And what does she have to show for all this trauma and hard work? Yep, a hapless collection of Mr. Wrong, Mr. Wrong and Mr. WRONG. Jessica L.

I got married when I was 38. Before finding my wife, there was a lot of pressure to get married from friends, family members, and colleagues. Inevitably they'd say something like, "You might be able to find a girl at the supermarket or laundromat. You just have to keep your eyes open."

I did. And going to the supermarket for 15 years as a single guy, I might have had a conversation once or twice with an eligible woman. So the book How to Meet a Guy in the Supermarket grabbed my attention. Was there something I was doing wrong all those years?

Maybe, but maybe not. The book Sex in America lists the five most common ways people meet their spouses. The survey was done on people who were married for twenty or more years so internet dating sites wouldn't make the list, yet. Here is the top five: School, work, introduced by a friend, church, and proximity (in other words, someone who is a neighbor you might see walking the dog, getting the mail, or in the supermarket). My wife and I are both teachers. We met at work through friends, so does that mean we met at school or at work or introduced? Either way, we met one of the most common ways. Obviously there can be some overlap.

Next on the list and in a distant sixth place was meeting someone in a bar. Meeting someone in a supermarket made the list but it was under one percent of couples but it was ahead of the laundromat, which also made the list. The author lumped them all together and called the category "meeting someone cold" - in other words, striking up a conversation with a stranger. Combined, it accounted for less than five percent of marriages lasting twenty years or only one marriage in twenty.

So why is there this big myth about meeting someone cold? It's romantic and the thing you'd expect from a movie. Or maybe most people who met that way never get married or end up divorced before twenty years of marriage. So when I picked up How to Meet a Guy in the Supermarket, I wanted to know if it revealed this secret.

What I got was a delightful read. Quinn, the narrator, is able to laugh at herself as she comes up with one idea after another, most failing in bizarre ways. She has a personality that sets the tone and makes the book charming to read even though at times I wanted to scream at her. In a way, it reminds me Goldie Locks in the Three Bears, but you have to read it to see why I say that.

Let me get this straight, this is chick-lit romantic comedy. It is fun. Imagine yourself watching a movie like "The Proposal." It has funny scenes that make you laugh. This book works in the same way. And I could picture it as a Hollywood movie. As long as you know what you're getting into, this book is pure pleasure.

And what's the key to a romance? Keep the two lovers separated. Create a lovers triangle or two. When the right guy comes along, the reader knows who it is, but Quinn doesn't. And as long as they are apart, the book remains interesting. The story doesn't disappoint and it stays interesting to the end.

I picked this book up after I read another book from the same author. This book was very entertaining, considering the small price I paid for it. Story is about Quinn, who is a writer and is ready to setup roots. She is looking to find her Mr. Perfect and she sets out to do it at the local supermarket. Her "shopping expeditions" were very funny and entertaining, but sometimes you just couldn't believe the extent of the things she did. It becomes a little unbelievable, that one would resort to such desperate measures to get a man to notice her. Story chronicles her life and her quest to find Mr. Right. The things she learns during the process and how she grows as a person by the end of the book.

All this time, she is doing her man shopping, she befriends Trevor, who works in the seafood section of the super market, who she only sees as a friend. Ending is pretty predictable, but book was still a fun and entertaining read!

Well, for 99 cents, it's hard to complain...but I will anyway. I could get past dropped commas (as another reviewer mentioned, there are many grammatical errors), but I just couldn't get past the completely one-dimensional, idiotic main character and the resulting lackluster narrative. The character is so unrealistic, uninteresting, myopic and self destructive that it drags the book down. The story is also told in this really distant, generic way, like the way you'd tell a long (and boring) story to your friend over a quick coffee- so dropping all the details. That is WAAAYYYYY too detached and 'zoomed-out' for a book! We want some details! Give us some good dialogue and a peek into the emotional lives of at least one character! In other words: narrative! Nope- none of that here. The author skims nonchalantly over weeks and months without any interesting introspection or events and the next thing you know, one year has passed! Sorry to be so critical, but really, don't bother with this one, not even for 99 cents...
