This is a prime example of one of the chick lit books I love to pick out when I need a break from intense novels. Deep Dish really offers a spattering of southern charm which makes it incredibly easy to relate to for a girl from Georgia. Much of the storyline is set in Atlanta as well as on an island on the Georgia Coast which makes anyone who recognizes those places feel like you hold a piece of the story a little closer. Obviously you wouldn't necessarily read this novel for its literary status but if you love to be able to place yourself in the plot of a book and can appreciate humor as well as a little bit of sensationalism, Deep Dish offers all of the above. I got through it in about 2 days and really got into the love story strewn throughout Gina's Bridget Jones-like awkwardness that is fairly prevalent in my own life, too. For mindless humor and a little bit of cheesy fun, this book has it all.
