"In Molly Shapiro's fun and sexy debut novel, four women try to sort through the wild and complicated world of text messaging, status updates, and other high-speed connections. Best friends and fellow midwesterners Katie, Annie, Maxine, and Claudia are no strangers to dealing with love and relationships, but with online dating and social networking now in the mix, they all have the feeling they're not in Kansas anymore. Katie, a divorced mother of two, secretly seeks companionship through the Internet only to discover that the rules of the dating game have drastically changed. Annie, a high-powered East Coast transplant, longs for a baby, yet her online search for a sperm donor is not as easy--or anonymous--as she anticipates. Maxine, a successful artist with a seemingly perfect husband, turns to celebrity gossip sites to distract herself from her less-than-ideal marriage. And Claudia, tired of her husband's obsession with Facebook, finds herself irresistibly drawn to a handsome co-worker. As these women navigate the new highs and lows of the digital age, they each find that their wrong turns lead surprisingly to the right click and, ultimately, the connection they were seeking"--

Romance updated with the complexities of modern love. Internet dating, sperm banks, and facebook double-lives. It's all here.

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "I would not recommend this book. I took it out from the library because the cover image appealed visually and the title suggested an entertaining read. Unfortunately, by the seventh paragraph of Chapter One, I experienced a major disconnect. From the teaser I assumed a fun, light read, but I just couldn't relate to any of the dialogue, characters, or events. If this book is accurate in its depiction of dating/seeking relationships in the digital age, it's a wonder that anyone makes a sincere, profound connection. All ends well in this story, so if a happy resolution is important to you, it does deliver in this regard. Overall, though, I don't feel it's worthy of a read."

A promising premise that did not deliver. I checked out _Point, Click, Love_ thinking that it would be a humorous and engaging story celebrating friendship and love --- kind of _The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants_, twenty years later. Instead, it was the story of four suspiciously similar women, all with the same set of quirks, goals, and moral standards, and all clumsy to the point of slapstick in their use of social media. I won't be rereading or recommending this book.

Didn't quite care for the ending but loved the fact that the characters and story are based in Kansas City!
