Then I read The Cupid Effect. This book is a lot more lighthearted that the other two that I had read, but it had me snorting with laughter. Which when you're on the train is not the best thing and will most likely get you strange looks from other passengers.
If you are thinking this book will be like Goodnight beautiful and My Best Friends Girl ITS NOT. It is definately not a deep book like those and is just a lighthearted funny read.
Would recommend to anyone who doesnt take life too seriously.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I have :)
Koomson doesn't write conventional chick-lit fiction, but she does write a story that is enjoyable and intriguing at the same time. It's an enjoyable easy read that flows through the plot, developing a series of intriguing characters - some more sympathetic than others, but most quite likeable. There is also a very pleasing 'character twist' at the end of the book which gave me a giggle!
One of the things I admire about Koomson's style of writing is that she allows her characters to develop along with the plot, rather than thrusting things in your face - so much so that it is possible to read 2/3 of the book without even realising that one of the main characters is gay!
For me personally, another of the highlights was that the book was centred on a part of Leeds that I know fairly well - Headingley, Burley Park, Kirkstall and Horsforth. It's the area where I went to school, and where my brother later lived. She obviously knows this part of Leeds very well too, as there are incredibly few Geographical errors - and the few that are there can easily be put down to artistic license! Anyone who has lived in or has been a student in Leeds will recognise many of the places in this book - guaranteed!
Give it a go. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!
