This review is from: Just Say Yes (Little Black Dress) (Paperback)
Phillipa Ashley's third book is as great a pleasure as the first two. It has all the hallmarks of a vintage Ashley: a wonderfully vibrant sense of place (in this case, a sunbaked Cornish cove), a feisty and funny but also subtly vulnerable heroine (Londoner Lucy Gibson), a very sexy, tanned and muscled hero, and a lively cast of believable - and in many cases hilarious - minor characters. Add to the mix a love story between a muddy Labrador and an out-of-control Great Dane, a pack of hellhounds from the tabloid press and a reality TV show which goes horribly wrong for Lucy, and you have a summer read which is as laden with thrills and spills as it is with the aching tenderness we have come to expect from this author. There were plenty of twists and turns, right up to the end, and nothing about the story was predictable - except that it would finally end with a satisfying `Ahhh'. Highly recommended for the beach - it even has seashells on the cover!
