“Better Than The Movies” by Lynn Painter
February 18, 2023
“Better Than The Movies” is quite literally better than any other romantic film (at least in my opinion). The novel’s lead, Liz, is a hopeless romantic: She wants it all—that meet-cute moment, the smooth pick-up lines and of course, a perfect fairytale ending. Liz’s preconceived notions about love are directly challenged in this popular tale about realizing what love really is when she realizes the guy she’s yearned for her entire life isn’t who she’s meant to be with.
For suckers of happy endings or for those in need of a good laugh, “Better Than The Movies” fits the bill to a tee. With hilarious characters, a fun yet memorable plot and charmingly awkward dialogue, “Better Than The Movies” will work for those who don’t mind a cliche. While it is more of a conventional romance novel, it is sure to make your heart sing.
