The story is a fun read. Emma, the protagonist, has enough history to make her interesting (but damaged), and enough determination and spirit to make her likeable. Despite knowing there was going to be a twist at the end, I didn't see it coming because the clues were so cleverly woven into the plot.
The strength of this book is the full cast of well-developed characters and sub-plots which made it feel very real. A light, heart-warming read which keeps the reader entertained throughout.
With a colleague who drools over men and her suspicions that co-workers pass information to rival magazines, Emma also has a personal life based on obligation and habit. Down time doesn't exist in magazine publishing; no sooner is one issue out the door than the next has to be compiled. She's tired, three years after a Vegas wedding. Next up, she and Guy are sent to a conference in Vegas, where lectures and workshops are a lot of work, and Emma deserves some relaxation.
Characters include a girl who's badly treated by her boyfriend and then gets a proposal from him, to Emma's Pop and neighbours. I would have liked more details about producing the magazine, and more computer technical challenges, than the constant gossip. But with family meals, sports days, a formal evening, there are changes of scene to keep the story moving. And when Emmie asks her friend who's got engaged, "Do you really think he's the best you can get?" and the other girl is undecided, we see reality for many middle-range office workers. Emmie has a secret, which is not helping her life. Confronting her friend helps her, and then she has to start turning matters around. THE TECH GUY deepens when people start facing up to their problems instead of just doing what's safe.
This was a fun and witty read. I really liked Emma - she was sassy, capable, and had some great thoughts, and I was definitely not expecting the twist at the end! A fab chick lit book to keep you thoroughly entertained.
So, Emma vs The Tech Guy. It took me a little while to get into this story but before I realised it I fell for the characters and the story. I never would have guessed at the twist that came with it. The main character Emma kept bigging up this lie that she didn't want anyone to find out about and I really didn't see what was coming when everything came out. I kept trying to work it out.
It was an incredible story that kept me guessing till the very end and the characters were wonderful to the point of endearing. I love a story that keeps me on my toes and guessing, which this book totally did.
I would definitely say that this is a book that is well worth reading and sticking with.
Thank you. Lia, for an enchanting tale and for giving me the chance to read this tale.
