So it wasn't bad, but could have been much better. There were two main irritants which prevented me from enjoying this book far more. The first was unfortunately the main female character, who seems very immature for someone who is supposed to be 23 and from a large city (Detroit). If she was 18, from a small town or this story was set about 40 years ago, I could understand her reluctance to move away from her family or their reaction to it, but this is the 21st century!

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.

The premise is quite sound and the writing moves fairly well. It's the complete lack of attention to detail that is the most annoying part for British readers. British people do not use the words "eggplant" or "fall" nor do they refer to University as "school". The glaring howler is that the writer asserts that Church of England has confession like the Catholic Church. Never in the 10 years of going to church have I been to confession in a c of e church. It states the writer came to Britain for research. Sadly it seems that they did not get a British proof reader to confirm the speech and syntax or the small detail. When the main make character (supposedly British) tells the lead female that he is "ticked" about something you know it's wrong. I'm battling through the book as I hate to leave things unfinished but this book could do with a revision on basic detail.

The story was enjoyable, but I was frustrated when the British characters used some American terms that we do not use in the UK e.g Fall instead of Autumn, eggplant instead of aubergine. Apart from that I enjoyed the story.

I've read the '3 girls' series by Rachel before and really enjoyed them. When I saw this for free, thought I'd give it a go.

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.

Really enjoyed all the book until the last chapter. It really did feel that the author lost her way and asked someone else to finish the book off for her - or was that the intention????

Found this tedious & trite with wooden dialogue. Main character is annoyingly pathetic. Also annoying badly researched - British characters using words like 'fall' or 'eggplant'. Gave up a third of the way through.

By Clare O'Beara TOP 500 REVIEWER on 7 Jun. 2015

A Latina girl in America has studied hard as her family wishes and wants another year of college before applying for teaching jobs. She takes a course in London, to everyone's surprise.

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.
