The Day I Shot Cupid by Jennifer Love Hewitt Review: I am not sure really how to review this book. If it was marketed as her “How I got over my recent engagement and got a dating manifesto”, I could have probably gotten it more. I think JLH is sweet and charming. Those personality traits come across in several sections of the book but it seems to me she wrote this book for her exes and/or her girlfriends to read. She is never mean to them but it does give a bit of that look where I am now vibe. It is kind of like “The Rules” in simpler terms and some of the examples she uses are extreme (maybe not in her world but the world in general). As far people complaining about how a constant dater is writing the book, that I have less of a problem with. In fact, this to me is where the book seems genuine. You can only know the trenches if you are still there. Most people I know get the “dating wasn’t so bad” glasses once they are out of the dating pool. The book itself is quirky, funny,a bit uneven at time, and a quick read. The part I disliked the most was the Jamie Kennedy section and that probably was colored by their dating history. I am just not sure the book was marketed correctly so my rating is based on “is it a good self-help book for daters”. So I ranked it 2 for the genre it was marketed too and probably a 3.5 if you pick it up for a fun read. Author Website: http://www.jenniferlovehewittonline.com/
