What the publisher says:
Isobel Graves moved to LA determined to be the Next Big Thing. Instead, she is dressed as a giant prawn handing out fliers promoting a fish market. Rather than attending glamorous parties and dating exciting men, her evenings consist of watching box sets with her sort-of boyfriend, whose idea of romance is a late-night drunken text.
Where did it all go wrong?
When Isobel catches sight of Andrew Parker, her childhood sweetheart, in the background of a TV news story she feels it’s a sign. If she’d stuck with Andrew everything would have turned out better. Now she just needs to find him…
Join Isobel as she travels from LA to Devon and to a remote Malaysian island in search of true love.
What I say:
This book promised to be a little different to other romance novels in that the heroine wanted to rekindle what had been a childhood friendship and turn it into something more. Whilst living in America she had begun to fantasise about what her perfect life would be like with him and when she spots him on TV in the background she begins a hunt which takes her across the world. Once she finds him all she has to do is convince him that they should be together. Simple right? Well, no, otherwise it would be a pretty short book.
Isobel is a likeable heroine who seems to get herself into scrapes on a regular basis, lots of which raised a chuckle or two. I wouldn’t say this caused me to laugh out loud but it is well written and would be an ideal read for a bit of escapism and let’s face it, we all need a little of that at times.
Rating 4 out of 5
