My other criticism is the lack of research on the part of the author. As well as the examples mentioned in other reviews, I hated it when the English/Scottish characters kept referring to university as "school" - it's just plain wrong. Less irritating and more ridiculous was the scene where the author was obviously trying to show she'd done some research on the full English breakfast, but still managed to call black pudding "blood pudding".
Anyway, the ploy of making the first part of the series free, so I will buy the others, has not worked in my case.
It's an easy and pleasant enough story. As in all chic lit books, predictable at times.
Being English, I was very annoyed at the use of American words. 'fall' 'eggplant' 'dean' and others. Please Rachel, let an English person read this book and correct it for you. Let me them tell you that we have 'black pudding' and not 'blood pudding' on our full English breakfasts! Also, get someone to check your grammar and spelling throughout! There were mistakes that shouldn't be in there.
There is a lot of wasted time describing places and as another reviewer commented, it's almost a tour guide book in places.
I might download the next book in the series as I did feel a slight connection to the two characters.
If you want something easy to read and to pass a few hours, this is decent enough for that. It's definitely not a challenging or hugely gripping story though and I do feel a little let down.
The story is very slow to get under way and we meet many family members who are going to be left behind; more of them have long phone conversations with our heroine. But by halfway through the book we realise that the story is actually all about breaking away from the family mould, so we are going to meet them again and their influence is considerable.
The heroine enjoys English literature so is keen to start on her course; she takes an inordinately long time however to go out and sightsee in London, but maybe she was just nervous to do this on her own in a strange country. She meets a lad at the theatre who is a small part actor in a Twilight-alike series filmed in the UK. His parts have been increasing but he is more interested in arty films. Cue the involvement of various young media darlings and some sniping from female stars. Is our heroine out of her depth, as she believes? Could the budding romance ever be made to work? And what happens when she has to go home?
I liked a lot about this tale, such as the descriptions of the film makers' lives, the historic sights of London and Edinburgh and the way that the girl is not pressured to go to bed with the new guy. She understands that she is falling behind on her course, but somehow her romance comes first. This kind of tension, and interpersonal stress, creates the dramas rather than any action. By the end I really did get a good understanding of the family life and expectations of this young lady.Read more ›

I really liked this book, possibly something we all dream about. However, some of the speech by an English person was questionable. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Deborah Anne
