The Monk Upstairs...Review

About the book:
When Rebecca Martin finds the love of her life, it's finally time to cross off one giant task from life's to-do list. But not so fast. The wedding is a minor disaster, the honeymoon doesn't get much better, and then the biggest shock of all—living together as monk and wife.

Rebecca couldn't help falling in love with a monk, but that doesn't make it any easier. Mike is up before the sun, meditates every morning in bed, hates socializing (not to mention all varieties of small talk), and last but not least has a rich inner life with which she can't compete. When God is essentially the other women, all bets are off. What has she gotten herself into?

Returning with the same cast of characters that made The Monk Downstairs a New York Times Notable Book and a two-time BookSense top-ten pick, The Monk Upstairs is a page-turning love story that pulls back the curtain on fairy-tale romance to reveal what really happens when two people from very different walks of life fall in love, get married, and live under the same roof.

A story about a monk who leaves the order and gets married. It was ok. A quick read. I had it finished in about an hour and a half. Not bad, not great. Some insights into the catholic world of monks. It's a sequel to The Monk Downstairs which I haven't read, but don't plan to.

Can't say I recommend it.
