#BookReview: Waiting for Tom Hanks (Waiting for Tom Hanks #1) by @KerryAnn


Synopsis: Can a romcom-obssessed romantic finally experience the meet-cute she always dreamed of or will reality never compare to fiction, in this charming debut adult novel from Kerry Winfrey.

Annie Cassidy dreams of being the next Nora Ephron. She spends her days writing screenplays, rewatching Sleepless in Seattle, and waiting for her movie-perfect meet-cute. If she could just find her own Tom Hanks—a man who’s sweet, sensitive, and possibly owns a houseboat—her problems would disappear and her life would be perfect. But Tom Hanks is nowhere in sight.

When a movie starts filming in her neighborhood and Annie gets a job on set, it seems like a sign. Then Annie meets the lead actor, Drew Danforth, a cocky prankster who couldn’t be less like Tom Hanks if he tried. 

Their meet-cute is more of a meet-fail, but soon Annie finds herself sharing some classic rom-com moments with Drew. Her Tom Hanks can’t be an actor who’s leaving town in a matter of days...can he?

Rating: ★★★★★
My Review:  This was a super cute story like any romantic comedy tends to be.  The main character Annie goes through all the stages of a rom-com from humiliating herself to finding her Tom Hanks.  It was a wonderful light-hearted read where you learn that romance isn't everything it was supposed to be.  That true love doesn't follow a script and thats ok.  The pacing was very nicely done, the pages flew by and I didn't want to put down.  It is a perfect book to curl up with and read all day.  


Although, this book was kind of predictable it fit the story well.  That even though you knew at times what was coming it didn't takeaway from the story at all or the adorableness that the story entailed.  

Overall, this was a great little story to take you out of your life for 259 pages of rom-com yummies!!
