Years ago, I loved reading romance novels but fell out of the genre. However, Marsha Casper Cook's Grand Central Station has changed my life. It is an adorable, funny, quirky, and altogether a joy to read.
I loved the story of Jack (the famous author on parenting) who has never been married, falling in love with the divorced Victoria who is the mother of three children and a talking dog named Angus. What more can want than, except to add a sister, ex-husband, and mother into the household to make for a genuinely fabulously fun read.
Thank you Ms. Cook.

If you’re tired of the same run of the mill romances then this one is certainly right up your alley. You won’t wind up with a huge drama that leaves you waiting for the happy ending. Rather, this romance is a lot more real to life than you can imagine. The characters are loveable, even with some of their eccentric behaviors, which is something that I especially enjoyed about the book. I also got a kick out of the humor that the author brought to the table. If you love romance stories but aren’t eager for the erotic elements that many novels have now-a-days, then this is right up your alley.
I read this book was taken from a screen play, which might be one of the main reasons it stood out to me. Of course, this means the dialogue is much stronger than you would find in other novels. Overall, you will keep a deeper storyline that is sure to impress.

In this heartwarming, romantic, and humorous tale in the style of 21st century magical realism, Marsha Casper Cook introduces us to Noah, an eligible, single Chicago bachelor who seems to have no luck meeting the right woman, despite numerous matchmaking attempts by his overly involved, well meaning, but perhaps slightly neurotic, stereotypical snowbird mother. When Noah picks out Gracie from a local pet shop, events begin to unfold that lead him toward a romantic, happily-ever-after ending with the perfect woman who had been right under his nose all along.
Cook’s characters are compelling, the plot is engaging, and the pages fly. The story is almost Shakespearian in its various twists and turns, in the true sense of the words "Romantic Comedy." Far from presenting the clichéd sequence of events we would all expect from such a narrative of finding love in the big city, assisted by a magical, talking pet, Cook presents a fresh and believable cast of characters that pull us into their world. The book is also the perfect length for its genre, and will hold your attention in one sitting, much like a movie.
Cook’s writing also speaks to some themes of our generation, such as the late twenty-something or early thirty-something crowd looking for love and meaning, reconciliation with the past, and of course, our love of pets, especially dogs.
Highly recommend as a good read for anyone looking to enjoy a romantic comedy as they relax in the evening.

‘Love is a wonderful thing, and you never know when love can happen, you just need to believe it will’ It’s very rare for me to find a book like this one and as you keep reading, there is a constant giggle that it just can’t stop. Stories like this are a reminder that no matter the age or the rough pass of time, love will still come to you, from one way or another, a mother, a relative or a close person to you will always care and get worried about you and as twisted as your life might be, there is a solution for that too. I, honestly don’t have the words to express how much I love this book, especially because two months ago one of my beloved pet passed away and while reading this, I was remembering every moment of happiness I have with him, just because we have a language, can talk and complain it doesn’t mean dogs or animals in general don’t do that too, and considering the joy a pet brings to your life, it’s normal to suggest that this story happen to all of us in a daily basis.
No criticism, no suggestions, just buy and read this book, times are always difficult, no matter the perspective, but stories like this one can make everyone’s day a little bit better.
