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.
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!
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.
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!!

Light hearted, fun and a little different to much of the 'writing by numbers' chick lit that seems to be churned out these days. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Fleurina

An easy read, a great one for reading whilst on holiday. Not too taxing. Worth it as it was a freebie.Published on 15 Jan. 2014 by sharon
It wasn't strong in terms of story line and was irritating at times as it was too simplistic. However it was well written and if you like simple escapism it may appeal.Published on 16 Dec. 2013 by J machin
I persisted and read it til the end but its 3 hours of my life that I'll never get back. You may enjoy this is you're 15 but I doubt it.Published on 12 Dec. 2013 by Clare Stephenson
