More About the Author

Lindsey Kelk is a British writer and children's book editor. When she isn't writing, reading, listening to music or watching more TV than is healthy, Lindsey likes to wear shoes, shop for shoes and judge the shoes of others. She loves living in New York but misses Sherbert Fountains, London and drinking Gin & Elderflower cocktails with her friends. Not necessarily in that order.

From the Author

Top Ten Things to Do in New York

1. Visit Bleecker Street
Bleecker Street is my favourite street in New York. There is nothing you can’t get here – dog clothes? Yep. Magnolia bakery filling-inducing cupcakes? You got it. Marc Jacobs branded joy? Yes. Second-hand bookshops? Go on then. Coffee shops? Lots. Snooty record shop workers? of course. Love it.

2. Drink too much hot chocolate at Max Brenner
Honestly, the stuff is like sludge. But how sludge would be in heaven.

3. Destroy your credit card at Bloomingdales
Lots of top brands under one iconic roof. Fab.

4. Cocktails at Little Branch
If you don’t see anything you fancy on the menu of this cool former-speakeasy, just tell the bartenders what you fancy and they’ll whip something up. Something delicious and strong enough to floor an elephant so maybe go easy.

5. See a band at the Bowery Ballroom
I love the Bowery. It’s small and dank enough for gigs to still feel intimate but old New York fancy enough to feel like you’re doing something special. Even if you’re not.

6. Have breakfast at Tiffany’s
It’s practically the law. Go and buy coffee and a danish and stand staring longingly into the windows. Plus it’s cheap which will ease the Bloomingdales induced pain on your credit card.

7. Go shopping in SoHo
Again, not good for the credit card but SoHo is full and brilliant little shops, from top designers to bargain basement retailers. Also, lots of opportunities for coffee stops and star spotting – both cheap and extremely good fun.

8. Take a trip on the Staten Island Ferry
Relive Working Girl and take a trip on the Staten Island Ferry for some brilliant views of Manhattan. And the best part is it’s FREE!

9. Spend an afternoon in MoMA
I love MoMA. There’s so much to see and it’s just such a serene place to be right in the centre of Midtown. Leave lots of time, if it’s busy you don’t want to feel rushed.

10. Hang out at the top of The Empire State Building
It might be a cheesy tourist thing but I still love the views from the top of the Empire State Building.

This novel would probably not have made it off the shelf and into my hands for even a cursory glance, had it not been for the fact that I heard Lindsey Kelk interviewed on the wonderful BookD podcast. Actually, I’ll be completely honest, there is no ‘probably’ about it, it absolutely wouldn’t have. I tend to avoid like the plague anything that could remotely be considered ‘girlie’ fiction (and no, I am NOT going to use the infamous term ‘Chick Lit’ as I can entirely appreciate why certain female authors find the term derogatory and patronising. Although thinking about it, ‘girlie’ fiction is probably similarly offensive. No offense intended).

I don’t avoid it because I am in any way dismissive of the genre – I firmly believe that good fiction looks entirely different to each one of us, and also that time and mood are incredibly important to how a book is received and appreciated by an individual. As long as you can escape into it, it’s a good novel as far as I’m concerned. It is simply that as my own personal form of escapism, this kind of novel doesn’t generally do it for me. I therefore tend to avoid pink, flowery covers and storylines that revolve around men and shopping (this is despite the fact that I actually do like flowers, men, shopping and am not averse to the colour pink). I just tend to go for books that are more likely to have me in floods of tears than make me smile. Oh God, am I a masochist?

Anyway, Lindsey’s interview hooked me in a number of ways. It was interesting to hear how she went from a career in publishing to becoming a published author herself. She described the various bumps along the road that she encountered on that journey, including one delightful agent who told her that her name sounded like a cat being sick!

Format: Paperback
On the night of her best friends wedding Angela finds out her Boyfriend has cheated on her but rather than stay and face the music she jumps on a plane to New York. Within a week she has a "job" and is dating 2 guys which turns complicated near the end of the book.

I like the character of Angela she seams a very head strong girl that on a whim takes off when everything goes wrong for her. She takes a chance and she ends up meeting some great new friends, getting a great new Job and dating an amazing guy near the end of the book. I love how the friendliness of New Yorkers like Jenny she was taken in under their wing, given a New York make over and shown the way However as much I loved the book I did think some parts where not realistic to real life such as a Hotel Receptionist being about to live in a apartment in Manhattan, going shopping everyday, getting a job within days of arriving and being able to live in New York when she wasn't earning alot from the blogging job.

I did like the fact the book was a page turner and I wanted to know/ find out what Angel would get up to from one day to another and I felt like it was well written as well. The characters where will written and had great personalities and stood out from each other and by the end of the book I wanted to learn more about each person. I also liked that the book didn't end on a clip hanger either in the epilogue you find out what guy she has been dating she choices...... 6 months later

So when Angela runs away to New York after catching her fiancé cheating on her, never would I have imagined she would re-bound so quickly and so deeply. Sleeping with two guys, who are polar opposites of each other, ‘I Heart New York’ follows Angela trying to rediscover who she really is.

I was really surprised at how effortlessly Angela happily strung along two guys. It made me dislike this part of her character as she feels no remorse for her actions. Then, when she starts writing a blog for ‘The Look’ magazine about her antics, I could spot a mile off what the outcome would be. Despite their flaws, I did come to like Taylor and Alex, the unfortunates who Angela is seeing. True they are clichéd opposites, but I did enjoy reading how differently they wooed Angela.

The climax to the story was predictable and I felt like I was waiting for it to happen. But what did keep me guessing is what Angela eventually decides to do and it is not until the Epilogue that her fate is revealed. This helped revive the story for me and kept me interested, so I guess this is one of the strong things ‘I Heart New York’ has going for it.

This is a chick-flick book but I have definitely read better. There was so much scope the writer could have used with this scenario but once it is agreed that Angela’s blog would be published, it is very easy to spot her downfall. If I have the chance to read other books by Lindsey Kelk, I hope it is better than this one.

Format: Paperback
I ordered this book from Amazon as soon as I'd finished reading the second in this ongoing series, 'I Heart Hollywood', and I wasn't disappointed, despite knowing most of the plot beforehand due to my out-of-order approach. The adventures of our heroine Angela get off to a flying start here when she flees Britain for New York after discovering that her long-term boyfriend has been cheating on her, and in true chick-lit style, finds instant friends, dates, and style as she flits around the city. It's all totally unbelievable, of course, but so much fun! Angela continues to be instantly likeable, with her occasionally-sarcastic wit balancing out her general ditziness, and there's lots of pretty clothes, pretty locations and romance. I didn't think this book was quite as good as its sequel, mostly because it's even further divorced from reality - Angela's unrealistically speedy recovery from her break-up means that her character development suffers, and the obstacles in her way become pretty artificial, unlike 'I Heart Hollywood', where some actual conflict develops and her relationship with her then-boyfriend is better explored. But it's still definitely worth a read, and I now can't wait for the third in the series, which is published in July.
