HK Jacobs’ debut novel drew me in from the start and kept me riveted throughout its sensational story. Every aspect of it was enjoyable, from the well-developed characters to the unexpected twists and turns, to the medical details and the witty dialogue. Rox’s spontaneity was one of my favorite aspects of the story. These entertaining events are part of what makes Wilde Type’s brilliance so compelling: Paris trips, posh dinner parties and wildlife safaris. In Wilde Type, I laughed, I shed a tear, I sighed with contentment, and I pondered the meaning of life in a variety of ways. Readers who enjoy romantic comedies with a complex plot, a lot of conflict, and a satisfying conclusion will enjoy Wilde Type.
