Unpredictable by Eileen Cook - book cover, description, publication history. February 2008 : USA Paperback.

Sophie isn't crazy, she just wants her guy back. And posing as a psychic to give his new girlfriend a fake reading designed to break them up isn't going overboard, is it? Don't answer that. Faking psychic powers turns out to be fun, especially after a few lessons from Nick, the cute skeptic, who teaches her all the tricks of the trade. But her readings do a lot more than she could have predicted. Now she must decide whether to accept her rising stardom in a less-than-honest line of work-and whether the best option is trying to rekindle her old flame or finding romance with someone new. And, most importantly, she needs to figure out whether the answers lie in the stars-or in herself.

Sophie Kintock finds herself at a low point. Her boyfriend of six years, Doug, has moved out, and Sophie is having a difficult time letting go. This is why she finds herself in his new, chic condo building's laundry room one Sunday night, stealing one sock from every pair in his dryer. It gets worse. Doug and his new girlfriend, Melanie, come into the laundry room. They flirt and make small talk, including that Melanie will be going to an upcoming psychic fair.

It turns out that stealing socks isn't Sophie's only trick. When college professor and professional skeptic Nick McKenna comes into Sophie's bookstore, asking for a bunch of research regarding psychics, Sophie can't help herself.

With Nick's help, Sophie learns the tricks of being a professional psychic. She goes to the psychic fair, and fake-accidentally runs into Doug's new girlfriend. She gives Melanie a reading--even throwing one in for the friend with her--and you can only imagine the "badvice" she provides her rival.

Mission accomplished.

Except for one problem. One of Sophie's most bizarre predictions happens to come true, saving lives, and thrusting psychic Sophie into the limelight. Just before she finally cuts short her career with a confession, guess who calls the radio show she's on, asking if she'll take him back.

Yup.

So Sophie is back with her perfect guy, and a perfect, princess-like life ahead of her. The only question is, does she still want it?

Eileen Cook's "Unpredictable" is a fun book. Sophie's narration crackles with self-deprecating wit and biting sarcasm. We can't help but love her and root for her, even though Doug sounds like a priggish jackass. What happens as Sophie works her secret plots to win Doug back, is that she outgrows him. She ultimately finds that maybe she'd been less "in love with Doug" than "in love with being in love with Doug." That's an important distinction, one that might save many ugly breakups.

"Unpredictable" doesn't hold a lot of surprises, story-wise, but this isn't the type of novel that should. This is the kind of book perfect to read when you need a little fun in your world. One need not be a psychic to intuit how "Unpredictable" will end. It doesn't matter though, because it's getting to that end that's such an enjoyable ride.

Recommended.

The Commencement: This book was free on Amazon so I downloaded it. So basically, I know nothing about this book. Therefore, I had no expectations.

The Cover: The cover was very cute and simple. I wouldn't call it stunning, but sometimes simplicity can be really nice. It's good enough, not really as playful as the story though. However, it still coincides with the theme of the story so it's all good.

The Composition: The basic gist of the story is pretty common, but the things that happened around it made a world of difference. This book is laugh-out-loud-funny! Eileen Cook has a good sense of humor. This book also debunks a lot of preconceived notions that people have about Canada and religious or paranormal beliefs. I like how the chapter headings are zodiac predictions, but are actually just introducing you to the chapter. They're long chapter titles though - it took me 3% of my Kindle ebook before the story started. All in all, I like how this book has a voice of reason, yet still makes me laugh. She also talks a lot about food, which makes me hungry a lot while reading.

P.S. I am very much curious about Jane's French Toast Recipe because it has cream cheese, and I LOVE cream cheese.

The Characters:

Sophie is funny - crazy funny. She can be a little over-the-top with the things she does to achieve what she wants. It made me laugh so much. I'm a little thankful I don't go crazy like her. She was fun to read about. She's smart and sweet. She just misdirects herself with thinking the wrong things sometimes. She doesn't know how to listen too, which can be frustrating at times. But I still supported her the whole way through. She's lovable like that, I guess.

The side characters were really good as well. I love Nick's voice for being the logical one in all of this. He's the adorable Scottish bookworm in this story~ He's really smart and sweet, and he cares a lot for Sophie. Doug is the crazy guy who broke up with Sophie and started the whole mess. I hate Doug. I don't know why Sophie loves him so much. He's such a dick or maybe he's just really so vain. Girls can be so blinded sometimes. We tend to be too nice. In the story, we also have Jane who is Sophie's awesome best friend that takes really good care of Sophie. I love her~

The Couple: I was totally rooting for Nick and Sophie, and I feel like there weren't enough pages for their romance. I wanted to read more of it. I liked it that much. They just had a lot of fun/ny times together, and it was really good. I just really wish more things happened between them~ I love Nick!

The Charm: My favorite part is the first few chapters because Sophie was acting so crazy and it was so funny and adorable that you don't know if you should be amused or annoyed. I went with amused - very amused. This book tugged a little on my heart strings because of my recent break up, but I wouldn't dare go through the lengths that Sophie did. It was fun living it through her.

The Conclusion: Overall, this was an enjoyable book. I surely had a lot of fun with it. It's a light and fluffy read, with a little twist of intellectual or logical ideas. I like how things played out in the end.

There's really not that much to say about this little treasure. First of all it reminded me very much of the main character in Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic series. Coincidentally, the main character in Unpredictable goes by the name of Sophie Kintock. See the resemblance in their names? Like Becky Bloomwood in the Shopaholic series, Sophie Kintock is also a very self-centred character who puts her own needs before the needs of others, and is endearingly clueless about it all. Mishaps and bad luck seem to follow her wherever she goes, but it attributes to the comedic value of the story.

I loved that the person she falls in love with at the end isn't a typically hot guy with a lopsided grin and gorgeous eyes (which describes every guy in just about every YA book I've read in the past eighteen months), but rather an interesting intellectual with a Clark Kent-like handsomeness (CK when he's not in superhero mode). For this alone I give this book a well-deserved five stars. He was more in the background of the story, but still he won me over in the first half of the book and I was rooting for him and Sophie to fall in love with each other. No forced or mushy romance either which made this an utterly enjoyable read for me.

All and all this is a light-hearted, fun read which is bound to have you in stitches. Despite it needing a good round of editing and someone explaining to the author the difference between "then" and "than", I can't give it anything less than five stars. Fans of Sophie Kinsella's books will love Sophie Kintock, her vengeful Scottish terrier, Mac, her best friend Jane - the sleep deprived mother of two energetic kids - and Sophie's cheating heartthrob boyfriend who is even more naïve and oblivious than she is. Unpredictable is great as a Summer read next to the pool.
