A fast paced read. I really liked it - has more to the plot than the usual love story. Reminded me of Bridget Jones, and the Shopaholic.

Modern English girl has a reliable boyfriend, but when her handsome, dashing ex-boyfriend reappears in her life and invites her to Rome for the weekend, she impulsively decides to accept. An easy chick-lit read, but the stupidity of the main character was kind of annoying.

A light-hearted intertaining story, with an unbelievably naive and flaky main character. The novel is witty, humorous and fast-paced, with many reference to the film "Roman Holiday."

Okay, so at 1st I almost didn't finish the book, because I got so aggravated and frustrated with the main character Georgie for being an absolute idiot. But, I continued reading and it did get a lot better and she grew up by the end of the book and sorted everything out satisfactorily.
Good read - was able to finish in 2 days.

This book was a bit of a let down for me. If I pick up a book called When in Rome, then is it wrong to expect more than 55 of the 264 pages to actually be set in Rome?! Most of the book takes place in London.

I liked the main character Georgie enough to finish the book, even though I thought she was pretty clueless about most things. I won't be running out to find another book by this author though, I guess British chick lit isn't for me and I'm from England!!
