3.0 out of 5 stars Very 'obvious' chick-lit, 30 Sept. 2011

This review is from: The Perfect Hero (Austen Addicts) (Kindle Edition)
If you're looking for something very light and easy, then you'll probably enjoy this book. But there really is very little depth or detail to the plot or the characters.

It's a perfectly harmless story, which would work well if you want cheering up without having to use any brain-power, but personally I ended up getting pretty frustrated by how cliched each and every character and plotline was. Most books of this type are fairly predictable - i.e. you know that chick-lit is almost certainly going to have a happy ending. The interesting part is finding out how the characters get there.

But in this case, I felt irritated by the shallowness of several of the characters (particularly Kay, who was quite hard to like, despite being the main heroine), and it was just a case of waiting for the inevitable.

The 3 stars are mostly for the setting - Lyme Regis was described very well, and it was easily to imagine the Cobb and all the landmarks where the actors are filming.

Overall though, this is definitely nothing more than a beach book.
