Sink into the romance and sparkle of snowy London, in this charming début novel. For the past two years, Evie has lived an invisible life in London. Her neighbours think she's just moved in, and even Evie's manager at work can't remember her name. But all that is about to change ...this Christmas has brought a flurry of snow and unimaginable possibilities into town. And when an accidental encounter with the handsome, enigmatic Joel gives her the chance of a whole new identity, she takes it.

This was a nice wee story about a stock room girl, pretending to be someone she's not so she can grab the guy. It did get a bit annoying after a while as everybody was lying about everything and you knew it was going to end up hurting them in the end.
I would - but from where I sit, probably not until next Christmas. It's a seasonal thing!
Nothing specific - though it's an almost-fairy-tale-anchored-firmly-in-reality sort of book. Perhaps it wasn't a stretch to work out where it was going, but enjoyable finding out how it got there.
She's a pro - just seems to hit the right note and let's the writer do the work.
Not particularly, but it was a sweet, Christmassy story, entirely appropriate for the time I listened to it.
Descriptions of fashion can be risky - one person's 'beautiful' is another's 'euugh!' - and date a title very quickly, but I think the author managed to pull it off in this case.
I'm 29, happily married and a full time nurse. Audible is a god send to squeeze in some reading time and escapism.
This book was a very easy listen, predictable in some places but a very sweet story - I wish I'd listen to it closer to Christmas! I wouldn't say it was a book that would stay with me forever but it was definitely a pleasant listen and and i would recommend it to any chick flick lovers.
Evie - she's naive and kindhearted and a little bit of a doormat and i enjoyed following her journey to her happy ending.
