Book Review, Giveaway: Digging A Hole by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff


Digging A Hole

Mimi Jean Pamfiloff





From New York Times Bestseller, Mimi Jean Pamfiloff, comes a new Romantic Comedy. 

He’s the meanest boss ever. 

She’s the sweet shy intern. 

They’re about to wreck each other crazy. 

My name is Sydney Lucas. I am smart, deathly shy, and one hundred percent determined to make my own way in the world. Which is why I jumped at the chance to intern for Mr. Nick Brooks despite his reputation. After ten failed interviews at other companies, he was the only one offering. Plus, everyone says he knows his stuff, and surely a man as stunningly handsome as him can’t be “the devil incarnate,” right? Wrong. 

Oh…that man. That freakin’ man has got to go! I’ve been on the job one week, and he’s insulted my mother, wardrobe shamed me, and managed to make me cry. Twice. Underneath that stone-cold, beautiful face is the evilest human being ever. 

But I’m not going to quit. Oh no. For once in my life, I’ve got to make a stand. Only, every time I open my mouth, I can’t quite seem to muster the courage. Perhaps my revenge needs to come in another form: destroying him quietly. 

Because I’ve got a secret. I’m not really just an intern, and Sydney Lucas isn’t my real name.

My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:

… we both know if we were a herd of elk roaming the tundra, I’d be the limping doe trailing a mile behind the rest with a giant “eat me” sign on my ass.

I am a warrior squirrel… We move silently like the wind. We sneak to get what we want. But most of all, we crack nuts.

When I look in the mirror, one of my fake eyelashes is stuck to my chin. Nice. You’re a born princess.

My father flashes a sinister smile that touches his eyes, and I’m suddenly ashamed of every one of my body parts that looks like him, right down to my green irises.

My Review:

This was my second time reading Mimi Jean Pamfiloff and I enjoy her clever humor and amusing wit.  Her smooth and engaging writing style has a breezy flow and is easy to fall into.  Although it took me a good while to fully warm up to the main character of Sydney as her mousy meekness and deathly fatal timidity annoyed me, she seemed too spineless to sit erect and did not speak up but ran sobbing to the bathroom even when boiling over with anger over blatant mistreatment.  It took me half the book to appreciate her intellect and fully comprehend the cost of her efforts to move past her paralyzing anxiety and tendency to freeze, or as described herself, “a girl who locks up like a bad pair of brakes when anything remotely overwhelming happens.”  The storylines were smartly paced, well-crafted, and had a little sizzle and snap.
