Review ~ Julia (The Good Life #1) by Sarah Krisch

A failed actress, twenty-something Julia McCarthy begins writing a fictionalized blog as a form of self-therapy. Based on her carefree summers at her grandparents' farm, she never expects her little experiment to garner a viral following, but it does. Boy, does it ever.

Now, with thousands of loyal blog followers, and a syndication deal with the Chicago Herald, Julia is approached by GreenTV to adapt her blog into a TV show. The producers see her as a "Rachel Ray on the Prairie-type". She sees herself as a fraud.

In Julia's fictional world, she's successful. She can pay her bills on time. Heck, she even has a fictional gorgeous husband and charming little boy. Ready to realize her dreams, Julia returns to her grandparents' farm to shoot the TV pilot.

Brad Taylor is definitely not her type: he’s rugged, sensible, and oh-so smug about learning that Julia’s blog is a farce. As the manager of her grandparent’s farm, Brad doesn’t have time to deal with whimsical women who don’t even know how to cook.

Julia can't allow her attraction to Brad to distract her, not when her dreams are about to come true. But are these truly her dreams, her good life?
The Good Life was a Fun read. Julia had a blog, the good life that was based on her time at their farm as a child. Both the blog and the newspaper made her sound like she was a country girl, but in reality a city girl. When her dreams come true and she gets a book deal as well as a TV deal, so goes back to her grandparents farm, completely confused on how to play the part of the person from her blog and newspaper column.

Brad manages her grandparents farm, but is also a childhood friend. Brad was recently home from his stint in the army and the last deployment was hard. Brad was honest, loyal, fair, supportive, understanding, charming and compassionate.

This was a cute read.
