Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I enjoyed Lorello's Faking It which has a bit more depth than your average chick-lit and a positive message, so was looking forward to this. Sadly, this is far more cliche-ridden (gay best friend, singleton girlfriend - yawn) and the humour fell flat for me.

Sunny (yes, this is very American - I disliked her already for her name) has just turned forty and is forced by said best friends to put together a list of forty things to do to shake up her dull life - including sleeping with a scriptwriter on whom she has a crush...

Really, there are no surprises in this tale but the genre relies on attractive characters for whom we can root - sadly, I didn't feel that about either of our protagonists. However many times someone is described as 'charismatic', I need to witness it for myself in the book rather than just taking the author's word for it - and that didn't happen here.

So sorry, this isn't meant to be much more than a light and fluffy rom-com but I found the whole thing rather charmless, flat and dull.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Sometimes you have the whim to move completely away from your usual reading matter (mine being historical fact, social, SF/Fantasy, thrillers & graphics), for no particular reason either. So I am in the time-honoured realm of couple meet, are attracted to each, drawn apart, united once and happy ending.
Elisa Lorello handles this with a deft touch, the central characters are both forty/fortyish neither are having much self-confidence, but generally are quiet likeable folk so from the instant of their accidental meeting and their swift quirky division you are turning the pages wishing them to get together again, even if their intermediate choices or foibles are being annoying, which of course is just how ordinary people are.
Sunny Smith comes with two sort of stock friends, a fraternally bossy gay man (also her boss at work) and a single woman of similar age whose mission in life is to see her friend hitched up; actually both are made quite believable and realistic in that there are tensions and fallings out.
Danny Masters has demons and a teenage daughter he is devoted too, realistic so far, though at this stage the idea of a celebrity script and screen-play writer with a devoted fan base I found a bit difficult to accept (and I am sure will cause a wry smile amongst many in that profession), however maybe I am being a bit nit-picking.
Being in very unfamiliar territory I would not dare to fit this book into any particular genre for fear of getting it quite wrong. A love story in an ordinary recognisable world is as close as I dare. I must admit a number of the social references were American so I missed out on the nuances, and as for the details in shopping trips and makeovers, they truly lost me, but I got the gist.
Anyhow the reader will soon know where this is going, but so what? Enjoy the journey I'd say. Quite a refreshing change of reading for me.

I am a big fan of Elisa Lorello's books after a recommendation from a friend and this one is another great read. Its light and easy to read but not frothy and lacking in substance. Her characters are believable and likeable, apart from Charlene, who you are not supposed to like anyway! I found some of the sentences rather long to start with but it certainly didn't detract form a fun plot. I guess it struck a chord as I would love to work in a bookshop and don't we all have a little celebrity crush that we wish could be something more?

Although this wasn't one of those "mushy" love stories I found it to be quite predictable. It's taken me quite a while to read it as the thought of correctly predicting the next chapter put me off picking it up on a number of occasions. That said, it was a pleasant read with no violence, menacing characters or complicated plot twists.

This book reminded me of Daniel Martin by John Fowles as it was about two different writers, one successful and one not yet successful. I found both characters were believable and had real depth. One a script writer and the other a bookstore stockroom manager with a crush on the script writer. They bump into one another at a film premiere and then their stories are told separately until they meet again. My only criticism is the ending could have been crisper and seemed to be dragged out a little too much.

There's no question that this is well written and that the character's are well developed and likeable but the whole story was just a bit too slow for me. I found myself getting bored and not really caring when I had to stop reading to go to work or answer the phone.

This sort of book is really not my thing so I was really surprised when I couldn't put it down. There is so much going on and not only are the main characters - Sunny and Dan absolutely brilliant so are the secondary characters. I am definitely going to be looking for more Elisa Lorello books.
