Right Click - Lisa Becker (2014)

This is the third and final instalment in the Click trilogy. Renee and Ethan are heading towards their wedding; Shelley and Nick undergo a life-changing event. Baby Siobhan provides a challenge for first-time parents Ashley and Greg, while Mark and Cassidy's relationship is swimming along nicely or is it? Right Click deals with a lot of issues - infidelity, parenthood, marriage and of course friendship.This group of friends are people who you would want on your side. There were a few shocks along the way that I didn't see coming and I felt sad and happy along with the characters. I loved the e-mail format in which the series has been written in and I look forward to more stories from this author. (KD)



Double Click - Lisa Becker (2013)

In this sequel to Click, the story has moved on six months down the line for all the friends. Renee is feeling anxious as she is moving on with her relationship with Ethan. Shelley is still single but does she want more? And Ashley is feeling happy within herself but is something missing? Is Mark ever going to go on a successful date? These probing questions are all answered in this hilarious story told in email format. I laughed out loud at the puns used and I already miss the easy writing and the story of Renee and her friends. I loved this; it's going up there as one of my favourites ever. Lisa Becker makes it easy for the reader to relate to the characters and although she has only written two books I would class her as one of my favourite authors. (KD)



Click: An Online Love Story - Lisa Becker (2011)

Renee is less than a month away from the big 3-0. One of her best friends sends her an email to see if she'll try online dating with him. After bouncing the idea off her overly-sexed friend Shelley, and her straight-laced friend Ashley, she decides she has nothing to lose, except maybe her dignity. Together Renee and Mark fill out online profile's on the 'Choose Jews' website, and promise to tell each other about all their escapades. After going out on what feels like a million dates with men who are too nice, total losers or completely psychotic, with occupations ranging from musician, a TV wardrobe designer, to a doctor and the totally un-employable, Renee finally finds her man. I won't give anything away but Renee makes a discovery that could break them up and end her friendship with one of her best friends for good. It is written in a series of emails, which I found quite entertaining; the banter alone is hilarious. Finding true love online might seem bizarre, but Lisa Becker made me a believer. You'll enjoy the quirky characters, their relationships, and find yourself laughing along the way. This is one you should add to your reading list. (CF)



Click: An Online Love Story, by Lisa Becker, follows a group of friends through the dating world. Some use traditional methods, while others decide to try cyber dating; can you really find true love online? The synopsis says: "Fast approaching her 30th birthday and finding herself not married, not dating, and without even a prospect or a house full of cats, Renee Greene, the heroine of Click: An Online Love Story, reluctantly joins her best guy pal on a journey to find love online in Los Angeles. The story unfolds through a series of emails between Renee and her best friends (anal-compulsive Mark, the overly judgmental Ashley and the over-sexed Shelley) as well as the gentlemen suitors she meets online. From the guy who starts every story with 'My buddies and I were out drinking one night,' to the egotistical B-celebrity looking for someone to stroke his ego, Renee endures her share of hilarious and heinous cyber dates. Fraught with BCCs, FWDs and inadvertent Reply to All', readers will root for Renee to "click" with the right man." Author tidbit: Becker had endured her share of hilarious and heinous cyber dates, many of which inspired Click: An Online Love Story. She is now happily married to a wonderful man she met online and lives in Manhattan Beach with him and their two daughters. (CF)
