enchanting romantic comedy,
This review is from: Perfect Strangers (Paperback)
Robyn Sisman is one of my top five romantic comedy authors, streets ahead of the dismal chick lit brigade. Not only does she create characters you feel you know and care about, she writes with real verve and wit, and with the emotional honesty of a true romantic. Like Sleepless in Seattle this is full of yearning but you could give it to your grnadmother and not be embarrassed because it's all about what leads up to two people finally getting together.
English Suze and US Lloyd swap jobs and flats, and in entering each other's world rock it to its core. Suze is as warm and chaotic as Lloyd is WASPily uptight, yet each has the qualities needed to rescue the other from personal and professional disaster. There are great set-pieces, such as Suze's miserable affair with a man who can't be prised from his mobile phone, but each setting is developed with loving detail. Alongside Meg Cabot's The Guy Next Door this is one of the most charming work-life romances ever
