All the ingredients for a perfect bit of chick lit; romance, tragedy, comedy with a dash of glitz & glamour. Ideal holiday reading or an escape from a grey winter's day. Loved my first Nina Whyle book, I will definitely be reading her other two books.
I love reading a book that i cant wait to get back to or have to stay up late to finish. I had to stay up to the wee hours to finish this fast paced, fun and well written piece of escapism. Everything I hoped for.
Now this is a rom-com written with style. It is clear from the very start that the author is both intelligent and has a wicked personality and this all comes across perfectly in the very likeable protagonist, Poppy. This book would cheer just about anyone up, but I can see it connecting with graduates in their mid to late twenties especially. The words Monty Python and fuzzy duck should be enough to convince you of this!
The insight that Whyle offers into the film industry comes from clear experience, and combined with the drive of Paige, this book will reassure everyone that a dream career is within reach. And then there is the steamy sexual tension! Overall this is one of the best books I’ve read this year. It’ll make you smile, get you hot under the collar and make you think. I found the ending a little too easy and predictable, not really in keeping with the rest of the book, but there’s no denying that it is a happy ending!
