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.

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.

Searching `New York' in the Kindle section of Amazon UK, Lindsey's book was the first to appear. The cover immediately attracted me and on closer inspection, I recognised the author's name. I haven't ready anything of Lindsey's before but I'd seen her name on numerous occasions and had seen many good reviews for her work. Her book `Single Girl's To-Do List' is also on my to-read list so keep an eye out for that review.

`I Heart New York' follows Angela Clark, a twenty-six year old writer on the verge of marrying her childhood sweetheart. She catches said sweetheart having sex with his tennis partner at her best friend's wedding. Angela's life is turned upside down, she takes the first plane out of London and jets off to the one place she has always wanted to go - the Big Apple.

The storyline is fun, exciting and I love that it is jam-packed with fabulous fashion, make-up and jewellery references. It has that New York sparkle and it just makes me want to jump on a plane myself. I've read reviews which state certain parts of the storyline are a bit farfetched... but what story isn't? This story itself portrays the essence of New York; it's the city where dreams are made and Angela learns how to live hers. I really warmed to the characters and am glad that this is only the first book in the series. Next stop - Hollywood!

Whilst I enjoyed the opening premise of this book, I almost stopped reading it when Angela got to New York because the plot became ridiculously implausible. I mean who manages to make a best friend as soon as she turns up in a hotel? Angela is also treated to a make over that transforms her into an irresistible siren in the space of 24 hours? This really irritated me and I found myself becoming more and more annoyed with the main character and the author. Jenny is also a weird character who flips from being a saint to a truly nasty piece of work at the drop of a hat. Tyler is charming one minute and then unpleasant when it suits the plot. Surely there could have been a more exciting way of getting rid of the character than having him and Angela falling out with each other. Do we really need to hear about her 'amazing' Marc Jacob's bag every five minutes? The broken hand was also referred to more than was necessary. How do you manage to break someone's hand with a stiletto? I thought the writing lacked intelligence and imagination. I did get to the end but by then I couldn't have cared less which man she choose or which country she decided to live in. I am sure that chick lit can be much better than this!

Absoulity amazing!! I've read all Lindsey Kelks book, but I heart New York is by far the best....I've read it over and over again, and still makes me wanna jump on the next flight to New York with nothing but a battered bag, my passport and very expensive shoes...which I can't even afford! This book is perfect for a cosy night in alone, you won't want to put it down once you start reading. Any girlie girl or women off course! Will be sure to love this book from back to back, filled with witty humour, belly laughs and day dreaming off starting a new life with a clean slate in the amazing fashion capital off the world...New York City off course!!
All Lindsey's book are just as addictive but this one is her first published....before you no it you too will have the kelk bug or as I call myself a kelkaholic.

I begun with I heart Christmas, went to I heart Paris, and now this one. I could not do anything else. Reading, being immersed in it.

Of course, this is the one you should read first, as even if every book has a conclusion and does not let you hanging, there are all, as probably the to other that happen in Las Vegas and Hollywood, about the same Angela. And what happens to her.

In this book, we feel why she hates the other boys, not yet why she is immediately so taken with Alex? whose wonderful personality grows on us along the way? and makes us feel more and more for him.

A lot of other characters live and breath in Lindsey kell:so book, and that and of course also the cities make the book very alive.

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!
