One Broke Girl (Edgewood Falls #1)
by Rhonda Helms.
Audience/Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance.
Publication: April 3, 2014.
Anna Parker’s life disintegrates with one phone call. Her dad’s selling their ritzy New York City condo because her Wall Street banker mom emptied their bank account and ran off with another man. Which means Anna has to drop out of her elite college and move with Dad back to their small Ohio hometown. Anna’s determined to reclaim her life ASAP, so she’ll use the next few months to save money, help Dad get back on his feet, and find and confront her mom.

But Anna doesn’t anticipate things going so wrong. The only job she can get is working as a lunch lady in an elementary school. Their money-pit duplex is falling apart around their feet. And her dad is depressed without her mom, who's proving hard to find.

One bright spot in the chaos is Gavin Metcalf, a kindergarten teacher she dated when they were young teens. With his easy wit and sexy smiles, he makes her forget her stresses—and the fact that her boyfriend Steven back in New York doesn’t know the truth yet about her dire circumstances. When past and present collide, Anna has to decide where her future lies...

Reviewed by Kelly.


I really like the riches to rags girl. I find that they are independent, strong and not selfish. They realize their true inner self and learn so much and are able to give much. I love the family bond of father and daughter here. I love that the man is the kindergarten teacher. How sweet is that?

This is a short book. It is sweet and to the point. I love Anna’s friends, Natalie and Bianca. They are real and loyal. I hope they get their own stories. I love the tenderness of Gavin and that he can still be masculine and be a Kindergarten school teacher.

It’s all I have to say. It's not a long review, but it states how I felt! If you like families, father and daughter particularly, friends, teachers, riches to rags, having pride in working, and being honest than this book is for you. But it is also an adult book with some intimate adult moments.

I received a copy from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. The review is my own.
