For the Love of Murphy Blog Tour – Top Two Quirky Romances #BlogTour #Giveaway #Romance
Welcome readers and blog followers 🙂 Always nice to have you come by my little corner of the web.
As part of the For the Love of Murphy Blog Tour, I’ve decided I’d talk a little bit about the theme of the anthology — Murphy’s Law — by finding out what the authors top two quirky romance movies are.
Since I am one of the authors, I’ll wait to share mine with the others 😛
Here’s what they had to say…
Top Two Quirky Romance Movies:
I love the Ugly Truth and The Holiday. I think they’ve got quirk. Too bad my nights are filled with a whole lot of Disney instead of my favs.
London Saint James:
Number two would be an older movie called, Say Anything with John Cusack and Ione Skye. Best quote of the movie was: “I gave her my heart, she gave me a pen.” It was funny, sweet, sad, touching… everything I like in a quirky romance.
And my number one quirky romance movie is: 50 First Dates with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. The heroine, Lucy wakes up thinking every day is October 13th from the year before and the hero, Henry tries to get Lucy to remember him. Even though this movie had a lot of crazy, funny scenes, it also had some real touching moments that made the movie both quirky and memorable.
My favorite quirky romance movie was Groundhog Day. I absolutely adore Bill Murray, and I probably watched that movie almost as many times as they repeated Groundhog day in the movie. I’m a sucker for a good romantic comedy.
My second favorite has to be 50 First Dates. Not only is Adam Sandler adorably sweet, I am a huge fan of Drew Barrymore. The plot was inventive, and the romantic elements were sweet enough to make you cry. Laugh and cry in the same movie…a winner in my book.
Lisa A. Adams:
Quirky romance? Um… Juno would probably be the first. It’s so incredibly different and fun. Then, I’d have to say The Proposal with Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds. That dance scene in the woods with Sandra and Betty White, yeah I almost fell out my chair.
My top two quirky romance movies are This Is 40, because it’s such an amazingly honest portrayal of that middle part of marriage, and Fools Rush In, because the jokes are funny and the romance is still adorable seventeen years later.
What about you readers out there? Do you have a favorite quirky romance we haven’t mentioned? What are some of your favs? Would love to hear your thoughts. Leave a comment — sharing is caring *wink*

Darci’s ready to move on. Too bad the dating pool stinks. Until, a ghost from her past resurfaces—the man she missed out on in college.
Andrew was the one man she’d always loved, but neither of them ever made a move. But, old feelings aren’t the only thing resurfacing of late. Darci’s ex comes crawling back at the most inappropriate time, and with all the testosterone flying, she might not end up with either man.
Coffee and Cufflinks by Annabelle Blume
Fresh out of a failed relationship and exhausted by a constant barrage of fiascos at work, Olivia Johnson doesn’t see the man of her dreams standing right in front of her. She tells herself the morning coffee meet-ups with Daren are nothing but coincidence, but even she can’t deny his unequivocal attractiveness. When a night entertaining clients takes a turn for the worst, and Daren shows up where she least expects him, failure starts to look more like fate.
A Slippery Slope by Rebecca Hart
Anne Montgomery is psyched for her girl’s only weekend, despite her friends’ choice of vacation locale—the snowy slopes of Harris Peak Ski Resort—where someone as notoriously accident prone as she has no business being. When Murphy’s Law finally catches up with her, Anne is forced to consider there may be times when it pays to be unlucky.
The Shamrock Incident by London Saint James
Florist, Marissa Carmichael isn’t usually a klutz, but she’s in a hurry and having a bad day. In her haste, she loses her balance and tumbles from the back room of her shop, arms flailing. Her less than graceful entrance halted by a headfirst crash into a display case chock full of silk flowers.
Trey Cleary didn’t think his day could get any worse, until he finds. himself picking the side view mirror of his BMW up from the ground. On a mission to do something about it, he locates the flower shop matching the name on the back of the van that mangled his ‘baby’. But, his car is forgotten when a beautiful woman bursts into the room like an out of control whirling dervish, and takes one mother of a wipeout into the shop’s counter. Coming to her aid brings out the hero in him like no one he’s ever encountered, and leaves him with a need to know more.
For Marissa and Trey, this just might be the one time it pays to be unlucky.
