A naturally funny, warm-hearted writer who creates characters to love and care about long after you've finished reading (Lisa Jewell)

The perfect summer sunbather, easy to read, packed with gags and truths (Irish News)

Sweeter than a bag of jelly beans . . . had us eating up every page (Cosmopolitan)

Fast-paced, funny, poignant and well observed (Daily Mail)

I enjoyed this chick lit. I have read many of Colgan' s novels and I have laughed with most of them. This book was funny at times, but there were few. The protagonist was different to your usual female heroine, because she is a character that you dislike, that is until she finds the revelation that helps her see that money and status does not always provide happiness, a cliche but done with humour and realism. I shall continue to read Colgan' s novels. I recommend Amanda's Wedding.

I love the pure escapism of this book and found myself laughing, crying and totally empathising with Sophie, the spolit but lovable heroine of this story. They only problem i had was the fact that i have lost a whole day of my life and am now dreadfully behind with everything. This book should come with a warning - 'Don't pick me up unless you have free 24 hours!'

I haven't given 5 stars for ages but I really enjoyed this one - one of the author's best. Have passed it on to my 16 year old daughter. Well worth a read.

Another great read from jenny Colgan
The setting was mainly in London. It follows the story of Sophie Chesterton, a spoiled daughter of a wealthy man who spent most of her time partying, didn't like the characters of all the people but the book keeps drawing you in.
Sophie goes through very rough times after the death of her father, None of which is very predictable. I found I needed to keep reading.......

Format: Paperback
Sophie Chesterton tells us her story in her own words; she is a spoilt little rich girl who is totally indulged by her wealthy father in terms of parties, jewellery, handbags, clothes and anything she wants. Until the day her boyfriend dumps her for her best friend and her father dies; Sophie’s perfect world comes crashing down around her perfect little ears. When the terms of her father’s will is revealed Sophie finds there is no money left, and a clause in the will dictates that Sophie has to go out in the world with nothing, find somewhere to live and support herself. She is literally kicked out by her stepmother and this is where it became unrealistic. I was getting annoyed with the book by this point, and felt it was a bit juvenile, and wasn’t expecting much as I really didn’t like Operation Sunshine. It did pick up though as we follow Sophie’s journey as she slums it. She moves into a complete dive with a group of students and cleans the place instead of paying rent. She takes a low-paid job photographing page three models. She finds out who her real friends are and discovers a lot about herself. I wasn’t convinced by the relationship side of things though and wasn’t sure where Jenny was leading us; not to the actual ending, I didn’t think! It was an OK read and had some very good moments but not a classic for me.

When I first started reading this book I didn't think I was going to be able to get into it but I did and I really enjoyed it. Jenny Colgan writes in such a way that she draws you in and her books are so easy to read. I have read most of them now so will have to search to find more.

This is a nice light read for when your having a lazy day or when your on holiday. It's not the best from Jenny Colgan but it's not awful. The ending wasn't very good as you could see it coming.
