    • A novel about finding the right man, the right career, and the right outfit that s what the cover of this charming book says but it s so much than that I suppose if I had to classify this book I d say Chick Lit but well written, witty, and thought provoking chick lit There s a pure entertainment aspect to Cupid and Diana as well as a sharp wit and humour that kept me reading I m not usually drawn into a romantic story yet this one made me empathize with the sadness many women feel when they are [...]


    • This was cute and well written and profound than I was expecting I loved that it was published in 1998 so there was no real mention of internet or cell phones the main character opened a vintage clothing store and they advertised it with flyers and postcards We didn t know how good we had it back then In short, I was looking for something to calm my hamster wheel of a mind, and this did the job.


    • I love this book It is one I squeeze in everytime I have a break from school, stay up reading late, and carry around just in case I get a moment The characters are well developed, the plot twisting and engaging, and the romance steamy.


    • Ugh This was disappointing and annoying from start to finish Did it really warrant a movie adaptation This book, read by 11 people, has a movie made after it WowWhy I didn t like it It irked me how dysfunctional this family was the competitiveness, cattiness, meanness, and just plain distance and coldness between the sisters The only two that had some sort of a relationship were Diana and Cynthia Then the cruelty of the father towards Diana Wow Can parents really be like that Moving on to Diana [...]


    • This wonderful story really makes you feel you personally know the characters It is well written and entertaining Diana, a vintage clothing store owner, is torn between two men Philip is the safe choice and he wants to marry her But Diana feels she really doesn t fit in his world Harry is the man she has lots of fun with, but he is married and only in town temporarily Though his marriage has no passion, he still feels committed to his wife Diana falls in love with him anyway I also enjoyed the s [...]


    • This sophisticated romantic comedy was a jewel of a discovery for me A grown up story of a woman succeeding in both love and business, it s a delightful little read And it made Christina Bartolomeo one of those writers whose work I seek out Whenever I see a new title of hers, it s a sheer pleasure Cupid and Diana isn t cloying chick lit It s sassy, witty prose wrapped up in a pink package.


    • I refuse to condemn myself for reading this book It s just a gentle little love story Not one thing No big insights into life, not even into family relationships or love relationships Nada Just a dip into another person s shoes for a few hours, a fun little weekend fling with a sweet romance novel.


    • I had such a hard time identifying with Diana She didn t have much business sense yet she bought a vintage clothing store and wondered why it didn t succeed I don t even think she grew as a character based on some of her decisions later on Easy read but not a really good read.


    • Total chick lit and not very good chick lit at that It was an OK quick read but don t expect much from it, the storyline was pretty stupid as was the main character.


    • 2.5 stars.Not terrible, but just a little better than OK This had been moldering among my stash for years until I closed my eyes and pointed on my chick lit romance shelves to pull a book for my May goal of reading a chick lit title A few brief points rose to the level of interesting or thought provoking but much of the book was tiresome with tons of family dysfunction, where is my life going soul searching and constant relationship waffling The best part was about the renovation of her failing [...]


    • I wish I had known that the protagonist was a cheater before I started reading I never would have started.And she gets her happy ending Yeah, that s some crap.I m gonna sell this book this weekend.


    • UGH I don t even know why I bother with chick lit Sometimes I can find a good book, but most of the time it is couple of hours of banging my head against a wall The main character Diana was whinny as all hell Oh no one loves me I m the least loved sister I m ugly blah blah all while not one but TWO lawyers love her The characters were bland and didn t even develop one ounce through the whole book The plot was cheesy and predictable Then, on top of all that, it started off slow the middle 50 page [...]


    • At first I was a little shocked at how quickly the heroine, Diana was persuaded to be with someone else What was wrong with Phillip He was good They had an easy love But as the novel progressed I began to see why Diana chose and thought the way she did I still think Phillip is a good guy as dose Diana, but he is not the right guy for her And that makes all the difference.I also liked the authors viewpoint that people should just love each other They should not make them work so hard for every te [...]


    • Cute book Set in D.C Diana is a 30 something Catholic raised girl who is close to her family but not always happy with them She is trying to find mister right She has been dating her lawyer boyfriend Phillip for a while but the relationshop is lacking something She winds up meeting Harry who seems fun, everything her lawyer boyfriend Phillip isn t, but she is questions the new relationship Diana is a business woman too and owns her own consignment store She struggles with her business as well as [...]


    • Diana Campanella is coasting through life She s left the security of a steady job and purchased Second Time Around , a high end second hand clothing store She s terminally engaged to a politically connected lawyer from an important Washington D.C family As the shop fails to gain new business and a wedding date remains undeclared, Diana grows bored Harry blows into Diana s life like a breath of fresh air.


    • It wasn t a bad book, just slow and it seemed a little too period piece to me, even though it seemed to try and be current The heroine didn t grab me until halfway through the book I also have a personal issue with using the word penis instead of being a bit creative Obviously that doesn t break the book but it s a personal thing.


    • a romance two men, one secure, comfortable and staid, and the other fun as with most such novels, we know Diana will go for the latter But this story has a few twists and turns While romance is center stage, so is Diana s store consignment vintage clothing all I read about that aspect of the story was fascinating I really liked this one cute, charming, fun


    • This is a novel about a vintage store owner in DC who is trying to decide between two romantic paths I liked the main characters And I loved the setting, as I used to live in that part of DC I felt that the climax of the plot was a little flat I think this is the author s first books, and I thought that it was one of those problems that a beginning writer might face.


    • Good book, easy read Set in D.C and I love reading about places I ve been, so if you are the same and life D.C, then read it It s about meeting people, figuring out what your dating style is and when you listen to your heart.


    • I enjoyed reading this book for the setting a DC neighborhood I used to live in, than the story I probably would have liked it better if the romance was a little less wishy washy I liked how the main character stood up for herself, though.


    • I thought the ending of this book was cute It seemed like it took the book a long time to get to the ending I kept reading this book and then leaving it for something else until I made myself finish it.


    • Diana Campanella just doesn t seem to fit in with her large Catholic family or her long time boyfriend s world Then her sister introduces her to Harry who helps her put her life in perspective A light, chick lit read, but enjoyable.






    • Liked it all right but thought how sad it was that the protagonist knew her father didn t love her as much as he loved her other siblings That overshadowed the story for me.


    • A delightful story, well written, and with full dimension characters All the elements of the book have great balance for an entertaining read Hope Christina keeps writing.


    • If I m going to read a romance, I like for it to heavily emphasize the clothes, esp if they are vintage clothes
