, review of ABNA 2014 submission manuscript

I immediately loved the characterization!! I felt like I knew Minnie...and could completely empathize with her misfortunes and her silliness. The dynamic between Minnie and her boss was to me very reminiscent of The Devil Wears Prada. I thoroughly enjoyed it! For fun, light reading, look no further. I anticipate this book being a great "beach read." Laugh out loud funny!
Vine Reviewer, review of the
ABNA 2014 submission excerpt

It was entertaining. It reminded me of something by Anna Maxted or Sophie Kinsella. Great for a beach read.

Product Description

Quarter-finalist for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award 2014

Think before you speak...

Minnie Chase is an ordinary girl and an extraordinary mathematician. She has a great job and a husband-to-be and loves them both. She is brilliant with numbers but finds people more of a challenge. She believes that if she can just master the art of being normal, her life might turn out right.

Ashton Greene is one of the most powerful and celebrated CEOs in business. He has the world at his feet and a glamorous fiancée at his side.

When Minnie meets Greene she has a sudden rush of words to the head and says something that she really, really shouldn’t have said. As a result, Greene’s perfect world is catastrophically turned upside down.

The subsequent fallout disastrously affects Minnie too. She sets out to correct her mistake, to put things right. She doesn’t know where to start or how to achieve this but she is determined to succeed.

She soon finds out that it is easier said than done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Minnie makes a mistake... and an impact 20 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love reading. I love books, the feel of a book, the making progress page by page. I wasn't sure about a Kindle. I didn't quite 'get it'. It didn't quite look 'right' to me.

But, I got a Kindle, and I love it. I love the freedom to read whatever and whenever. I can choose from (I feel a list coming on but I'll hold back) non-fiction, novels, short stories... I can choose to match my situation... half-an-hour to spare, an evening with my feet up. I also download items that I wouldn't normally pick up in a bookshop.

And so to the review. As a book in a shop I may well have by-passed 'Minnie', it may not have been on 'my' shelves. But as a download, there it was, and with the cover shouting an obvious San Fran connection, why not give it a go?

I read it, all of it. From beginning to end. I encountered people I liked and people I didn't. There were scenes that made me laugh and scenes that touched me. There were some beautiful lines, beautiful moments. There were parts that brought back happy memories of San Fran, I liked that. And I must confess that along the way I fell in love with Minnie too.

So what is it about? Well, it's about Minnie. It's about getting something wrong and trying to put it right. It's about actions, events and consequences. Do I recommend it? I can't think of any reason not to. However, one person's Paddington is another person's Ulysses. We're all different.

But Helen MacArthur wanted to write it, and she did. I couldn't have done that. So for the moments and the scenes and the ideas and the sheer drive I give it 5 stars. My choice. If you think you'd like to read it... your choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars couldn't put it down 6 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved the characters in this book, so different it made a welcome change. The storyline flowed in an excellent way so much so that I couldn't put it down! I have also read Four Widows which I enjoyed but I loved this one, I will miss reading about Minnie and wondering what she will say or do next.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Please! 26 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I could not help but be sucked in as Minnie Chase tries to put right the unimaginable series of disasters for which she is responsible. Helen MacArthur skillfully creates a fascinating world for her to navigate which makes it impossible to put this book down.

Minnie is a character who I hope will come back to enthrall us again. I am desperate to find out what dreadful mess she has to extract herself from next. I am sure you will be surprised and shocked by her, and love her and the insane journey on which she takes you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and lighthearted, not a bad read 5 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The title promised it would be fun and it was. It is far fetched but it is also a fast moving story which twists and turns to its happy ending. Different and well worth a read.

Wished it lasted longer!
I warmed to the characters, and found the plot pleasantly unpredictable.
I hope there are more Minnie books to come.
