Review: Delilah Green Doesn't Care by Ashley Herring Blake

I was not prepared for just how much I would love Delilah Green Doesn't Care, a quirky contemporary romance, or how much I would love the intended to be unlikeable title character. Delilah Green is an up-and-coming photographer, living in New York. After having her heart broken, she has made up her mind that she doesn't do relationships. She also never returns back to her hometown, but both of those things change when she is summoned back to Bright Falls to be the photographer at her stepsister's wedding. Suddenly, she finds herself falling for Claire, the shy and geeky Maid of Honour who has a bad relationship history of her own. The fact that Delilah's budding relationship with Claire is bugging her stepsister is another reason to keep going. But what if Claire ends up getting hurt? And is bride-to-be Astrid and her friends really as horrible as Delilah remembers?

This was such a fun, quirky novel. I loved that Delilah and Claire were very different from one another yet their relationship seemed to work and was handled well by the author. The backstory between Delilah and Astrid was handled realistically--neither girl had the happiest of childhood's thanks to Astrid's mother Isabel. The subplot that sees Delilah, Claire and Iris conspire to get Astrid to see that Spencer isn't the man for her is very entertaining and what I really appreciated was how that particular story wraps up. 

Overall, a fun quirky read and romance.
