If you're in the mood for a sweet story....

Check out Selling the Lite of Heaven. It reminded me a lot of the movie Crossing Delancey with a bit of My Big Fat Greek Wedding thrown in. It's the story of a woman who's left at the altar by a man who has decided to become a priest and what happens when she tries to sell her engagement ring in the Pennysaver. (Nowadays, it would probably be CraigsList.)

The characters are very likable and relatable and if you generally turn up your nose at "romance novels," this is more like a lit fic read than, say, a Harlequin. I liked it a lot and think it would make a lovely small movie, character-driven and full of community color. You can find the book here.
