Dumb Love, by Kathleen Jeffrie Johnson

While she doesn't have much experience with romance, Carlotta considers herself to be quite an expert at it. She is working on a love advice column and writing a romance novel. But in the worth of romance fiction in her town, there is a lot of competition from another girl who would steal not only her boy but even the characters from her novel! Meanwhile, she must also attempt to prevent her Mother from getting back together with her no-good biological father (and forsaking the confused but loving Franklin Thomas).

"Confused" is a good word for this book. While it claims to be humorous and funny, I found it more painful and difficult to follow, and missed the humor altogether. There were too many unmemorable characters and confusing plot lines. Give this one a miss!
