I reviewed this story for my blog (Morgen Bailey's Writing Blog) on 3rd September 2015 and concluded with... An enjoyable story, spoiled only by the proliferation of ‘well’s (mostly from David) and an ending I hadn’t expected (because there’s no hint of it anywhere else in the story!).

A good little book. It was easy to read and a bit different to other books of a similar content.

3.0 out of 5 stars Will definitely cheer you up after a long and exhausting day 29 Nov. 2013
By Ananda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Let's get something straight, Jennifer Gilby Roberts is a great chick lit author and creates uberfun chick lit stories. Few months ago I read another short story by her, 'Wedding Hells' and absolutely enjoyed it. I found it hilarious and think it's definitely one of the best short stories I have ever read.

Naturally, I had high expectations for 'Flights of Nancy'. I was immediately drawn by the cover, it's very chic and girly, and I'm such a huge sucker for pretty covers.

The story is cute though pretty unrealistic, but I didn't mind that really. Nancy dreams of becoming a chef and having her own restaurant. When she was younger she was predicted (by a fortune teller) she's gonna meet Mr. Right on her very 24th birthday. So, the big day is here and somewhat strange (but cute) guy comes into her life with a very weird (but oh so cool) offer. He offers her a stay in a 5* hotel in Greece, and there's no catch - he just needs some company. Could he be her Mr. Right? Why is it then she doesn't feel the spark?

Ok, as I said, being offered a trip to Greece by a stranger and accepting does sound silly and unrealistic. But, I'm not gonna over analyze it because it's obvious that this is humor and main intention is to entertain and make you laugh.

Nancy is sweet and though it's a short read I could actually feel her energy. I do find it hard to connect with characters from short stories/novellas because I almost always feel I didn't have the space and time to get to know them well. Of course, if there were more pages I could see more sides of her personalty, but still I saw the big picture and what I saw I definitely liked. Nancy is pretty upbeat and such a sweet girl. Bit naive too, but then again she's only 24 and has her whole life ahead of her. I cheered for her and wanted her to have her HEA and make her dream come true (become a chef).

I did expect few more laughs, because like I said 'Wedding Hells' was hilarious, but still it's fun and enjoyable. Easy and short, it will definitely cheer you up after a long and exhausting day.
2.0 out of 5 stars A bit of fluff 12 Oct. 2014

A short story should start with a hook and end with a twist. This one tried to do that but the hook was lame: Nancy is meeting Mr Right on her 24th birthday. SPOILER ALERT Then the twist was dull: the guy she mistook for Mr Right was gay.

It's a bit of fluff which is great if that's all you want from a story.

3.0 out of 5 stars just ok 10 Oct. 2013

Nothing to write home about...& that's only because it ends right when you'd want it to continue. That's why short stories annoy me.
