I'm not always attracted to chic lit, but for some reason I was rather intrigued by the basic premise of this novel. So it was one of several I downloaded for some lightweight reading to take on holiday recently. Well, I'm glad I did, and I wasn't disappointed. In fact I enjoyed it so much I finished it in a couple of days.
All the characters... particularly Jane, Paul, Susie and Lou, are most likeable and extremely well drawn, and the imaginative, twisty storyline, kept me turning the pages well into the first night, and I'd finished it by the second!
Although towards the end I kind of guessed how it would eventually turn out, this didn't spoil my enjoyment one bit. No details or "spoilers" from me here though... you'll have to read it yourself to find out what does happen. It has a light hearted appeal for anyone who enjoys romance set within a glamorous American TV show biz type setting. I can recommend it as a perfect holiday read, and I will watch out for more from this talented author.

Wasn't sure if this was my sort of book when I downloaded it, but I'm pleased that I did. I mostly like books that are light reading that I don't have to concentrate too much on remembering all the characters.

The plot moves between a sleepy village in rural England and the bustling and star-studded city of New York with a bit of showbiz London thrown in. The story moves along nicely. The four main characters, Jane, Paul, Susie and Lou are very well described and likeable. There are funny situations and some that tug at the heart strings, a few twists and I suppose a predictable ending - although I have to say that this didn't make the story any less enjoyable. Difficult to put down once you have started, I read this book within a couple of days.

A great book to take on holiday or for snuggling up with on the sofa!

Just finished with a big smile on my face. Wonderful story. Jane Anderson, formerly trained florist has been married to Paul for 20 years with a teenage son. She has given up her dreams of having her own flower shop, and put all her energy and talent into helping run Paul's horticultural business. Jeremy, their son, is all upset with his dad and finally Jane discovers why. Paul has become 'involved' with the wife of a client whose garden he is redesigning.
Meanwhile, Suzie, Jane's best friend who lives in New York, issues an invite and Jane goes over to visit. At a museum, a talent scout approaches Jane and tells her that she is amazingly like a famous tv presenter, Rosie Reynolds. It seems that Rosie has gone in for a secret little 'procedure' with the surgeons and has not told her adoring public. She's not going to be able to make it for the next live show and the studio asks Jane to help out. She's horrified but finds herself agreeing to it in exchange for some money. Jane thinks this will be a big help if the worst happens and Paul decides to divorce her.
Jane meets all the backstage people involved with the show including Lou, Rosie's alchoholic husband.
I can't tell you any more but this story is convuluted and mesmerising. It's pure fantasy and makes good and fun reading. There are serious parts too; when Jane is discovering the depth of Paul's betrayal with 'the other woman', I empathised completely as I know exactly how that feels and the author expressed it perfectly. But there's a happy ending here, so do download this and give yourself a chick-flit treat.

Not my usual cup-of-tea but if you like "chick-lit" don't miss out on this Kindle bargain. The characters are well-drawn, the story has some fun and original elements (although there are few surprises in the plot), and it zips along nicely.

A really positive review here. I enjoyed the book immensely - I have a slight reservation about how fast the heroine and her man fell in love - but hey it's a novel!

Some fun backgrounds of TV, gardening and New York .... all of which I enjoyed and a just a really good story that moved at a strong pace.

I happened to be able to download this free but it didn't remain that way for long - but having read it - I would happily have paid £5 for the book - great fun!!

I just found this to be the perfect read for two days lying on the sofa feeling ill - A good, light hearted, fast moving story with likeable characters that you don't have to think too hard about but can get totally absorbed in. Partly set in New York in a high flying glamorous TV network setting, and partly set in the world of a garden designer's business in Sussex, the story is very "twisty turny" so you are kept on your toes right up to the end. It can be a bit cheesy at times, but then again it is "chick lit", so who cares! Highly recommended.

This book is wittily written and a very funny entertaining read. I read Happy Hour last year and have been remiss in not having posted a review until now. I thoroughly recommend buying it for several happy hours.
