I cannot rate this book highly enough. I am an avid chick lit reader and love Paige Toon and Lindsey Kelk etc.
The main character Jane is instantly likeable and the authors style is brilliant and I cannot wait to read more books by her. However I wish there was a sequel to this one.
FAB BOOK - sad its finished

"Moving up on Manolos" is a really enjoyable romantic read - the characters are engaging and believable, and the story was pacey and kept you interested. I found that I really liked Jane as a character, and Michael was intriguing and mysterious (as a good male lead should be!). I am a sucker for a happy ending - so this ticked all my boxes!

I've just finished this book after finally getting round to it having bought it back when it was released. I'm kicking myself for leaving it so long!
It's up there with the best modern women's fiction I have ever read, Marian Keyes and Sophie Kinsella need to watch their backs.
You are instantly drawn into Jane's roller coaster world and the plot is totally believable too. Jane is the every woman and relating to the character is easy and fun.
I will be starting Nina's next book, Fighting Love, ASAP in the hope that there is an update on Jane within it. If not Nina, I will be demanding a sequel for Jane "Keeping up with the Choo's" or something?!

Just finished MOVING UP ON MANOLOS and had to write a quick review to recommend it, it was such a good read. We can all relate and be envious of the main character as she jets of to Los Angeles and leads the high life for a while. It was a real page turner and I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next as she gets caught up in all the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. Its the perfect holiday read or for those long tube journeys, I hope there are more books on the way!

I have given this book a three star rating as, whilst this book is very enjoyable in terms of the story, there were so many typos and grammar errors which made reading this book annoying and frustrating. There are that many that any reader would think that this book was never proof-read before it was printed. I know that the secretary in me comes out but I do accept the odd typo can go amiss but unfortunately there are so many in this book that it made it difficult at times to read as you had to re-read certain parts to get the gist of what the writer was trying to say.

I do recommend this book because it is an enjoyable book but the writer should really think about a re-print to get the errors corrected.

I loved this book! In fact so much so that I had all my book club members read it too.
The characters are strong, personable and believeable.
The storyline had me turning my Kindle pages at speed!
A must read, am looking forward to a sequel...

Passion, desire, love, confidence, self-steem, motivation, ambition....I relate to the main character and all those intense feelings! This book made me missed my train twice in 10 days while sitting on the platform. It is that good!

A really good read and agree with the point below that this story would translate well on the Silver Screen. Having said that, I have given it 3 stars because there are some serious grammatical errors - especially towards the end of the book - which become distracting. This includes mix-ups between their/there/they're and it's/its to missing apostrophes and commas. In some places the dialogue meshes or quotation marks are missing. Authors please take note: a bit of quality control before final publication would go a long way!

I don't often post reviews but was so disappointed with this book that I felt I had to. The story line aims to be classic "chick lit" but is way too unbelievable, but the most irritating aspects of the book are the huge amounts of typos littered throughout and the very stilted style in which the book is written. I gave up on this about half way through which is almost unheard of for me. A big disappointment - this is very cheap, but even so don't waste your money on it.

I have to admit I had high hopes for this book thanks to the other reviews I read, I love a good chick flick and this seemed promising for delivery.
However, I cannot stress highly enough the atrocious grammatical and spelling mistakes continuously used throughout this novel; the author seems to be entirely unaware of the correct usage of 'you're' and 'your', as well as lacking basic grammatical grounding. There is little use of speech marks and I just constantly found myself craving to get out my red pen and correct every detail. I would go so far as to say that there was not a single sentence that was entirely correct; most disappointing!
I concede that I was reading this on kindle, and it may be that the basic grammar was lost in translation to the digital age, but seriously? The wrong 'your'? What harm would a quick spell check do?
Whilst the story was engaging, if a bit far fetched, and I will admit I found myself laughing out loud in some bits (ie the hammock scene') the lack of proof reading took away from the experience and I was left feeling very dissatisfied.
Call me a grammar fiend if you will, but it seems to me that a book lacking in the basic form of English is a sorry state of affairs!
