Review

**AMAZON #1 BESTSELLER**

Literally a laugh out loud kind of book!

Just don't start reading it an hour before bed Gia Scott (Vine Voice)

A very funny peek into the life and mind of Cathy, housewife, mum and frustrated woman. Highly recommended! --Michele Gorman, Best-selling author of THE CURVY GIRLS CLUB

Bored stay at home mother, Cathy, finds her predictable routine upturned as she investigates a lipstick-covered love postcard sent to husband, Declan. Who is this mysterious La La? Could Declan really be having an affair? And - wait - is Cathy actually being stalked?

With all her friends hiding secrets, a sexy admirer igniting long-forgotten sparks, and the stress of organizing the school's Save The Toilets dance, soon it's not only Cathy's marriage that's in jeopardy. Add in the scheming antics of Declan's new assistant and a possible murderer on the scene and the stage is set for a dangerous showdown and some very unsettling, even deadly, revelations.

5* Comedy Drama Murder + More. Packed with humour (The Toilet Dance did have me intrigued). Laughs galore but also a murderous undertone. From romps with those that should not be romped with to accidents that should never happen a read that carries itself right from the start to finish. --Alessi Lover, Amazon Top 500 Reviewer

Go on an amazingly funny, brilliant and entertaining ride with Cathy and her crazy cast of friends and neighbors! --Mrs Mommy Booknerd 

You are quickly drawn into this very unpredictable, well thought out story, full of mystery, gossip and secrets which keeps you guessing right to the last chapter. --ElaineG (Amazon Top 100 Reviewer)

Filled with great characters and hilarious, yet believable scenes. I highly recommend Looking for La La if you need a good laugh! --Christy's Cozy Corners

This is a very good read about a woman, Cathy, who is at that stage in life where the kids are both at school and all the other mums around her in the school playground all seem to be getting jobs and leaving her behind as the only stay at home mum. She has that feeling, which all mothers have had at around about that time, of being undervalued, taken for granted and bored to tears. She knows she really should get a job, but she just doesn't want to.

Cathy is a fantastic character and there are bits of her that I recognised in myself as well as my friends. She is gossipy, funny, sarcastic and she has never learned to keep it zipped, especially when she has had a drink. That is when a lot of her problems start - she gets drunk and opens her big mouth and out pops either a huge whopper or the one personal bit of information that she knows deep down that she really should not be sharing.

She longs for excitement in her life and when the sexy postcards from La La arrive addressed to her husband, she thinks that now it has arrived. We join her as she starts on a quest to unearth the identity of La La who even her husband, Declan, claims he doesn't know the identity of. I loved the moment where she is wandering into the school playground looking at all the mums and feeling really chuffed just because she is the one who has managed to get a husband who is so hot that other women fancy him.

Her quest twists and turns throughout the book which starts to take quite a dark, dangerous turn for Cathy, whose list of suspects keeps growing larger by the chapter. Who is trying to stab her in the back and drive a wedge between her and Declan? Can she trust any of her friends? Can she trust her husband? Can she trust herself?

You are quickly drawn into this very unpredictable, well thought out story, full of mystery, gossip and secrets which keeps you guessing right to the last chapter.

Looking Fo La La starts very badly but persistence is rewarded - by the end I was actually enjoying it.
The disjointed prose was irritating and it needed to be professionally edited to eliminate the numerous grammatical errors (which I found distracting). I was not surprised to learn it had been self-published.

When I am reviewing books I don't like to give to much away, but I have to say this book BLEW me away!
It all starts with the arrival of a mysterious postcard that is the catalyst tonumerous life changing events.
This book had me hooked! It has drama, mystery, humour, romance and lot's of Laugh Out Loud moments.
Looking for La La kept me intrigued throughout and I grew to love Cathy's character, a stay at home Mum of two. She's exhausted, feeling unappreciated, and her life seems dull and uninteresting until the mystery postcard to her husband Declan turns Cathy and her best friend Raz into detectives. There is so many twists.

If you want a book that has so many emotions then this book is it. It's clever!
I have 6 colleges reading this book now and I'm sure they won't be disappointed.

Pam and Lorraine I cannot wait to read more of you two..

By Lincs Reader TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 18 Aug. 2013
Format: Paperback
I don't think that I'm quite the target market for Looking For La La, the latest novel from two sisters who write together under the name Ellie Campbell. I'm in my late forties and have never had kids, so the school-gate politics of the Mummy group is quite alien to me. I live in a small market town in rural Lincolnshire, so again, don't really identify with the professional city-dwellers that populate this story. However, despite really really taking an instant dislike to Cathy, the main character in this story, I found myself hooked by the storyline. Before I knew it, I was half-way through the book and eager to find out who the bloody hell is La La?

Cathy is a bored stay-at-home mum, her husband Declan works hard, and works very long hours. He's started to drop hints about Cathy going back to work, now that the kids are at school. He gets frustrated by the untidy house, the lack of any food in the cupboards and the time Cathy spends with her friends. And quite rightly so! Cathy thinks that Declan is just an old moaner, he's not, he's spot on. Most days Cathy manages to get the kids to school within seconds of the bell ringing and then spends the rest of her time mooching about, talking to her friends, half-heartedly starting new projects and not much else. So that's why I didn't like her. I'm not sure if the reader is supposed to sympathise with Cathy or not, but I certainly didn't.

Then the postcards start to arrive. Addressed to Declan and appearing to be from a mystery lover - who calls herself La La. Cathy and her best friend Raz (who is living in their loft whilst her flat is refurbished), are determined to find out who La La is. Declan denies all knowledge, he's far too busy with work, keeping the customers sweet and impressing the bosses.

This is not only chick lit at its best buy more, packed with humour (The Toilet Dance did have me intrigued). Laughs galore but also a murderous undertone. Did not think receiving a post card could have such an effect? Makes me think twice next time I send one.

Who would have thought that so many stay at home mums would feel the same way......Think this book could strike a cord with a few stay at home mums, whose kids have now gone to school and other half thinks they should then find a job. Laughed out loud when one character told of how she folded the clothes just when she saw the car head lights of her husbands car coming in. Think we might all be a bit guilty of things like that. Cue pick up a book or sit down for a few minutes and other half thinks that is all you do for most of the time, the cleaning fairy must do the rest. (If only).

A really upbeat read that features Cathy and her friends and at times hilarious, one trailing Cathy to find the elusive La La. No, not a telly tubby in sight. Receiving a postcard from La La really does set a cat amongst the pigeons for Cathy just who is La La and could it be one of her best friends. Not just the one post card either, think personally I would be tried for murder if that happened to other half.

From romps with those that should not be romped with to accidents that should never happen a read that carries itself right from the start to finish. I was so glad to be sent the book to review as I really really enjoyed it. Lets hope that there will be more from this wonderful sister writing duo.
