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.
I loved this book! It really made me laugh. If you like Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic series, you will love this story – Isobel is like a cross between Becky Bloomwood and Bridget Jones.
I absolutely loved the idea that Isobel has spent her whole life wondering about the boy she married age 8 in the school playground, and almost seems to panic that they are still married and not divorced! I got married at school, age 7, and I am still friends with my “first husband” now – we do joke about our wedding and the fact I’m his first wife!
My favourite character in the book is Zeb, who Isobel meets on her flight. He is a really likeable character.
I can’t really say much without giving away any spoilers! BUT, do buy this book. A perfect summer read.
