3.0 out of 5 stars A fun chick-lit to dream away with 21 Sep 2012
By Zarina @ Page to Stage reviews TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Evie Dexter's job as tour guide takes her to faraway destinations, from the romantic island of Venice to the rising temperatures of Marrakech. The vivid descriptions of the exotic cities she visits makes them sound ever so inviting to the reader.

Upon first glance Evie's life seems quite perfect. However, her fiancé Rob (who cheated on her, though she has been able to forgive him his momentary judgement lapse) is slowly becoming more controlling as he first asks her to quit her second job, and then even suggests that she should stop touring as well. With the exception of the tours for which he can be assigned the driver, as they'll be together for those.

While I haven't read the first title in the series, 'It Happened in Paris', it was easy to get into this novel and be swept away by Evie's escapades and the vivid descriptions of all the places she gets to visit as a tour guide. As a seasoned traveller myself it was nice to be able to revisit cities I've been to in the past and also discover new exotic destinations that sounded so appealing that I wanted nothing more than book myself onto the next plane able to take me there.

And in between the detailed descriptions of the holiday destinations there is the solid story of Evie's turbulent romantic life and the crazy situations she often finds herself in. With an outgoing and bubbly personality, which seeps through the pages of the novel and defines its flirtatious tone, it's hard not to instantly fall in love with her.

However, despite Evie's fun-loving nature she was as a main protagonist quite weak.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love love love this 5 Sep 2012
After reading her first book, 'It happened in Paris' I had high hopes for this book, and I wasn't disappointed. Her first book had me laughing out loud, and fortunately this one did too.
I love the characters, Evie and Lulu are so funny. I really hope Molly writes another book soon because I am a big fan and will keep my eye open for any future releases!

I have been a fan of Molly Hopkins ever since I read her debut novel `It Happened In Paris', which by the way, if any of you haven't read, then you need to try it because it is a truly fabulous book. Having loved Paris so much, I was very excited when I heard about `It Happened In Venice'.

I raced through this book, I enjoyed it so much and was reading at every opportunity I could get. The story opens with Evie and Rob on holiday in Barbados, which I became engrossed in immediately. I'd barely finished the first chapter and I was crying with laughter, and had tears streaming down my face. Throughout the story there are many more hilarious moments, most of which had me sniggering and bursting out loud with laughter, prompting many funny looks from my fiance.

Evie is everything you could want in a main character of this genre, she's hilarious, she loves beautiful clothes and drinks far more than she should! But most of all, she gets herself into crazy situations, and the way she deals with them makes for a gripping read. I really became involved in Evie's character, at times I was really rooting for her, and at other times I was screaming at the pages, wanting to give Evie a shake and to give her some much needed advice (you'll see what I mean). Overall Evie is such a likeable and relatable character and I'm sure everyone will warm to her.

All of the old characters are back for the sequel as well, firstly there's Evie's handsome now-fiancé Rob, who I think everyone couldn't get enough of in book one! Then there's Evie's housemate Lulu who thinks the answer to everything is to go shopping or drink more (I want to be her friend so badly!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab read! 27 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I decided to download this book as I was planning a trip to Venice. Although the character actually spends very little of the book in Venice, I was thoroughly enthralled! I am not usually a fan of chick lit but found myself gripped & unable to put the book down. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a light hearted but very enjoyable read (whether or not you are heading to Venice yourself!)

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute MUST READ! 30 Aug 2012
By Best Crime Books TOP 500 REVIEWER
Molly Hopkins released her debut novel last year (2011) and to be honest I only picked it up because there were so many favourable reviews on Amazon. Boy was I glad that I did! I read her book in a day or so and was genuinely shocked as it had been such a long time since I had read such a funny debut novel.

I realised that her second novel was released in August 2012 and when I received an early copy to review I was foaming with excitement. Evie Dexter is once again back with her crazy motley crew of friends and family. The one thing that made me love the first book was Evie herself and in this one she is back on top form. Evie is a brilliant character that I have fallen in love with. She cannot keep her mouth shut when required, constantly gets drunk and is always unpredictable, especially when it comes to shopping. She is engaged to her fiancé Rob even though he cheated on her. However, as a tour guide for Insignia Tours she gets the opportunity to leave the country for a few days at a time and her trips are always eventful.

This latest book had me snorting with laughter into my tea within the first few chapters. As a result when I arrived home from work, the book accompanied me whilst cooking, taking a bath and into the early hours of the morning. It's a book that is so warm and funny that you just can't put it down. In addition to Evie, her friends and family cause just as much mayhem and make the book what it is. I love her crazy flatmate Lulu, her sister Lexy and everybody that works with her at her friend Nikki's café.

It's hard to really review the book without giving spoilers, but I will say this. If you are a fan of the Angela Clarke series of books by Lindsey Kelk then make sure you pick up Molly Hopkins.
