5.0 out of 5 stars A stunning debut, 11 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: You Had Me At Hello (Kindle Edition)
From first line to last I was totally hooked. In a genre often stymied by identikit plots, unrealistic dialogue and twee cupcake making heroines, everything about Mhairi McFarlane's debut is a breath of fresh air. The central premise is engaging, intriguing and always rings true, and in Rachel Woodford she has created one of the best leading ladies in recent memory: sharp, witty, sometimes flawed, but always totally lovable and believable. Add to this a brilliant supporting cast of friends and colleagues, all with their own stories to tell and this is one of the most satisfying reads around - a terrific ensemble piece as well as a thrilling central romance, it has a depth of plot, character and storytelling rare for the genre. Mhairi's wonderful turn of phrase, acute ear for dialogue and ribald sense of humour will guarantee you at least five embarrassing public snort lols per page, and I can make no higher recommendation than that. A total joy.

A superb review. It really was a brilliant book wasn't it. To top it off she's a delightful person who thanked me on twitter for complimenting her book, she even engaged in conversation with me, made her and her book even more likeable!!
