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.

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..

I was asked to review this book and picked it up on a free promo. I had seen it on Amazon before and liked the look of it and I was not disappointed. The book weaves intrigue with humour and you only put the pieces together in the last chapters which I love in a book. I had no clue who La La was but the explanation made sense in the end. Very funny and realistic in detailing the cogs of daily motherhood. I have removed one star due to unfortunate typos and punctuation in places which detract from the flow of the story at times. A great read.

Though chick lit is not usually my reading of choice, I had come across an earlier Ellie Campbell, liked this cover so downloaded it and thoroughly enjoyed it. Even though it is written by two authors, the writing is impeccable, the story seamlessly told. You cannot at any point differentiate between the two voices. It is also extremely entertaining especially the gritty dialogue which brings the characters joltingly to life. Just the thing for a beach or a flight or that dreary daily commute into work. In my case I read it in a single sitting, snuggled on the sofa, with a cat on my knee and a glass of something in my hand. I hope Ellie Campbell will write a lot more and wish her the best of luck. I am green with envy.

Format: Paperback
This amazing novel is written by Ellie Campbell, a pseudonym of two sisters that are Pam Burks and Lorraine Campbell. This novel is so perfectly written, it has humour, drama and depth to the story.

Looking for La La's tag line is 'So many secrets...so little time'. This fits this book so well, from the mystery postcard to possibly being stalked. The story is set in Cathy's point of view, she is a mother of two children and is married to Declan.

As a stay at home mother, her days are filled with tidying and cleaning up after her family, that is until the day a postcard arrived. It is signed 'Love from La La', who is this La La? and what is she doing sending her husband a postcard? Confused by the postcard, and not knowing if her husband is having a affair or if it is some kind of joke? Its not long before more things become come to light and the whole situation gets even bigger with every passing problem.

Cathy's husband, Declan has no idea who La La is and what she is doing sending him a postcard but does he really? Cathy's best friend Raz is always there to help her and is more than ready to investigate the odd things that keep happening.

With every problem falling into the next one, but with the growing questions there are even more answers. If I had to sum up Looking for La La in three words they would be:- Thrilling, Gripping and Unique.

This book is great for anyone who loves a book that keeps you holding on till the end. I would definitely recommended this book to everyone, it has humour, drama and most important a great story line. The story was very believable, with lots of twists along the way.
