When it comes to Susan Elizabeth Phillips, I absolutely love It Had to be You and Lady Be Good but I have had less luck with Nobody's Baby But Mine and Dream a Little Dream.

It Had To Be You

Hands down, this is the best screwball comedy romance I’ve ever read. I’m not sure why I overlooked Susan Elizabeth Phillips for so long, but after I picked up this novel I had to glom everything she wrote immediately. Phoebe Somerville is a blonde bombshell bimbo with a brain and heart that ...
