Format: Paperback
This has got to be one of the funniest books I have read in a long time, a fantastic heroine who isnt your usual stick insect, a cast of characters who endear them to you and you want to get to know, and a great rough but very smooth leading man to drool over. Loved the antisipation and the butterfly in the tummy feelings that her situations brought to you. A great read couldn't put it down and can't wait for her next book to come out.

I found this book to be very good to escape into after a hard day looking after children! While it followed the will they won't they trend, it added some vey good twists and turns which kept you reading right to they end. A must read for anyone who has ever faced the dilemma of a mother who only ever wants the best, and wants you to settle down. It follows the story of Sophy's attempt to do just that, and the troble she gets into by trying! Totally unputdownable, sit back, enjoy and read in one sitting!

Format: Paperback
This was the 2nd book I read by the author and it was just a hilarious as the 1st one. She is so funny and full of life, I just can't put down her books. This books is really hitting reality when you are stuck at a wedding that is going to take place within a few months and feeling left out because you have no Boyfriend. What do you do. Well do you hire one and not get caught, or do you go by yourself. Read the book and find out what happens. It is so reality check time.

This book is way above most of the "chick lit" books I've read recently. It's funny, the characters are people you'd love to know, the storyline never sags and the language is realistic without relying on expletives to shock. This is definitely, as they say in the States, one for the "keeper" shelf. Elizabeth Young has joined Christina Jones and Freya North on my "must buy" list.

I really enjoyed every minute of this book. Sophy is a great heroine, the book motors along and all the characters are believable. As other reviewers say, this is at the top end of the 'contemporary women's fiction' scale. Can't wait for more!

I started reading Asking for Trouble, thinking it'd be a pleasant way to pass the time - but it was so much more than that. I was gripped and couldn't put it down. It's genuinely funny, unlike so many other novels in the genre. The characters are likeable, the scenes are true to life, and I loved the heroine's family - really good, warm-hearted stuff. I can't wait to read Elizabeth Young's next novel. A must read.

Asking for Trouble is definitely a lightweight, "summer" novel. But of that genre, it is better than most. The author is very smart in her use of language, and delivers some interesting plot twists (I didn't suspect the whole Kit thing, but it rang true at the end.) It's not the depth and density of say, a Christina Jones or Fiona Walker, but it's miles better than "Diary of A Shopaholic" or other "Big" books that have rolled out recently. It's a fast and light read, better than watching re-runs on TV!

Realistic, witty and totally entertaining. A must read for anyone who has an over enthusiastic mother or a fear of going alone to family weddings!! I can't wait for the next book.
