THE PORTABLE VEBLEN

By Elizabeth McKenzie

Don’t like soppy romances? This modern romantic novel will have you in stitches with every page turn. By no means a classic love story, this contemporary romance is set in and around Palo Alto and follows the lives of a couple, their two dysfunctional families, a seductive pharmaceutical heiress, and a persistent squirrel, all set to endanger their engagement. Quick witted, clever, and incredibly bizarre, The Portable Veblen is the perfect read for anyone not into the usual lovey-dovey romance.

If you love a tear jerker, this novel is for you. If Ever I Fall is a tale of heart wrenching tragedy, despair, and a fight for love that will take you on an emotional roller coaster. We are introduced to Dan, Maria, and Jack whose lives are simultaneously falling apart at the seams. Through homelessness, fear of unemployment, overwhelming grief, and lost identity, is love enough to save them? Read this under a blanket with a cuppa and a box of tissues, while you discover whether the characters’ lives can be pieced back together.
