After being unceremoniously dumped by her boyfriend, Ali convinces a cleaner to let her into his office so she can retrieve an earthenware pen holder she made for him. When $50,000 dollars is stolen from his office she immediately becomes suspect number 1. It Had to Be You is cute and fluffy contemporary romance, it's predictable but entertaining. It's very much Jill Shalvis painting by the numbers. Not bad but a long way from her best.
