Click, the aptly titled Double Click. Their circumstances have changed a little since we last met them- some are still looking for love, and others have found it- but they are the same funny, quirky, catty, lovable, close-knit clan. Ashley is having a baby, Renee is happily coupled up with Ethan, formerly known as "The Cuddler", Mark seems to have found "The One", and Shelley has a secret. Written in the same e-mail format as "Click" was, this eclectic group will work their way, via e-mail, through their various ups and downs, and they will work through them together.
I loved Double Click! If I had more time (darn working!! darn housework!!) I would have easily been able to devour it in one sitting. It was witty and charming, often romantic and funny, plus it made me appreciate my own friends even more! I will even admit to there being a tear or two in my eye at the end. Lisa Becker sure knows how to write a captivating ending! I've always enjoyed books written in e-mail format, and Becker stays true to form throughout the book, never wavering from proper e-mail format. That in itself made the whole thing feel like the conversations could actually be between real people! The situations felt realistic, and just like last time I found myself actually caring about and rooting for the characters.
My only complaints? It was too short!! I wanted more! It's not that Becker told an incomplete story, I just didn't want it to end. Also, I did find it hard to remember who was who at the beginning. It has been more than a year since I have read Click and I could have used some kind of a refresher. I did start remembering all of the characters and their various personality traits fairly soon in the story, but it took me a few pages!
Judging by the way that Double Click ended there will be a sequel. To that I say, bring it on! I can't wait! Double Click was a joy to read and an example of how friendships can grow stronger as our life circumstances change, and I can't wait to find out what happens next!
