It Had to Be Us — A Romance With Movies

posted by Nell Minow

It Had to Be Us is an ebook romance by “Elizabeth and Harry Lawrence,” the pen names of Betty Jo Tucker of Movie Addict Headquarters and her husband.  In a blog post on Coffee Time Romance, Tucker writes:

Where can you find a heartfelt true love story, some yummy recipes and over 20 reviews of favorite romantic movies – all in one package? Only in the Amazon Kindle version of It Had to Be Us by Harry & Elizabeth Lawrence, the pen names my hubby and I used in writing this award-winning romantic memoir.

About those romantic films, I know many can be highly predictable and not very entertaining, but my hubby and I have a lot of favorites, and in our award-winning romantic memoir we’ve included my reviews of several excellent ones. It was fun compiling our list of favorites, even though we frequently disagreed while making the selections!

She lists 13 of her favorites, including well-loved favorites like the Kiera Knightly version of Pride & Prejudice, and under-appreciated gems like Music and Lyrics, The Fountain, and Return to Me.
