4.0 out of 5 stars Deeper than the Yummy Mummy Chick Lit Novel, 9 Feb. 2007
This review is from: The Egg Race (Hardcover)
Polly Williams has not disappointed me in her newest London set chick lit novel. The Egg Race is just that. Two women are nearing the age of 40 where the chances of reproducing diminish greaty. Stevi Jonson really wants a baby and is set to marry the not quite man of her dreams, while Katy Norris is is a damaging relationship where her boyfriend works in New York and basically neglects her. The story climax's on Stevie's honeymoon in Thailand where she and her husband and Katy and her boyfriend are both vacationing in the same resort. A messy triangle erupts and the egg race is on. Set in London, Thailand and New York, this hilarious and heartfelt novel will speak to any woman who has ever met the wrong man at the right time.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Compulsive and Entertaining Read, 9 Feb. 2007
This review is from: Take a Chance (Paperback)
The book centers around 'Abbafab', the hugely popular Abba tribute band, are in trouble. In the band there are two sisters; however Gemma has just broken her ankle and finding a new singer to fill her white platform boots at such late notice isn't going to be easy. But desperate times call for desperate measures, and the youngest Redden sister, Mia, reluctantly agrees to don the blonde wig and sky-blue hot pants. The story is really about the complexities between the family and the hidden secrets that eventually service. The eldest sister is struggling with not feeling attractive and almost embarks on a affair, while the youngest is just finding love, while the middle sister is seeking out a new lief. Good chick lit with some twists.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Young Chick Lit, 12 Dec. 2006
Young woman in college who love british chick lit should read this. This humorous book is the story of a 21 year old girl who is bored, broke and paranoid.

Its very readable and is a good read if you're feeling a bit down and need a cheer up book!

3.0 out of 5 stars London Chick Lit: A Light Read, 12 Dec. 2006
This review is from: West End Girls (Paperback)
I'm a big fan of Chick lit and love chick lit set in London. Jenny Colgan has been one of my favorite writers in the genre.

While the book is nothing to write home about it is a great quick read which will provide readers with a pick me up. The book is very predictable and takes place mostly in the ritzy Chelsea of London.

They book's main characters are two twin sisters, who are as different as night and day. Penny is blonde, thin and outrageous; Lizzie quiet, thoughtful and definitely not thin. Out of the blue they discover they have a grandmother living in Chelsea - and when she has to go into hospital, they find themselves flat-sitting on the King's Road, trying to become IT girls in the socialite celeberity scene.

4.0 out of 5 stars Notting Hell from an American Perspective, 4 Dec. 2006
This review is from: Notting Hell (Hardcover)
Rachel Johnson's book Notting Hell is a very funny and amusing and reminds me of other chick lit humorous authors. I do not know how accurate it is but it takes place in the ritzy notting hill W11 location and is true london chick lit. I would also categorize this as mom-lit as it looks at the lives of two adults, one wishing to have children, while one has three children and their ridiculous life in NOtting Hill. The characters are complex and there is a twist in the story. A very easy read and very enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Your Typical Chick Lit, 29 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Queen Mum (Hardcover)
While the story tries to be your typical Chick Lit book by incorporating a Reality TV show into the mix, the book is really about two familys. Although on the surface it seems like the two familys are content with their middle class lives, secrets occur behinds closed doors. Ally must deal with the death of her young son Joe, while Juno must deal with her cookie cutter family and the leaving of her husband. The characters are complex and sad as well as funny and quarky. The novel takes a good look at the impact of reality TV and the story just carried me along. If you've never tried Kate Long then you should. A fantastic read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Any Easy Read, 17 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Cents and Sensibility (Paperback)
I read this book and thought there could have been more substance behind the characters. While it was an easy read. I've read other books by Maggie and I loved that this book was about the world of media and fashion. The crazy family was a cool aspect, however I felt that Maggie and Jays' relationship was a bit predictable.
