Fun read. English...I liked the characters...very human.
Funny British chicklit. I could identify with the character even though my life is very different from hers.
I really enjoyed this book! It's great chick lit. Jane is a twenty-something journalist who has the usual problems facing a modern woman: job stress, career angst, weight trouble, and an unfulfilling relationship with the man in her life.
To find out how Jane turns her life around, read the book.
If you are interested in a light read - this is great.
Jane is a twenty-something journalist who has the usual problems facing a modern woman: job stress, career angst, weight trouble, and an unfulfilling relationship with the man in her life. Her best friend, Tally, wishes she had a boyfriend, a knight with a gold car, who could ride up and keep her beloved family estate from falling into the hands of greedy developers. Which is about as likely to happen as Jane embarking on a guilt-free, passionate affair with the sexy writer who lives upstairs. Instead, she has just been recruited for the magazine's latest circulation-boosting gimmick: ghostwriting the life and racy time of celebrity socialite Champagne D'Vyne.
I'm usually a fan of Brit Chick Lit. I just wasn't a fan of this book and ended up skimming to finish it. Too wordy (does that make sense??), especially when it came to all the descriptions of Mullions, etc., and the Champagne character annoyed me, even though she did have some funny one-liners, though not enough to hold my interest. Oh, well...
