Summary

The star of aspirational women's fiction returns with a charming central lead who won't let life's events define her - she makes her own luck. Perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella and The Holiday.

How far would you go to make a new start?

When Nell's on-off boyfriend, Aidan, calls her into his office, losing her job is the last thing she expects. Heartbroken and unemployed to boot, she makes a radical decision to blow her redundancy cheque and escape to the untested waters of San Francisco. But is the glamour of the city too good to be true? And can Nell leave her past behind?

Poorly written and narrated

My last few listens have been crime audiobooks so I decided to download some chick lit for some escapist easy listening. Unfortunately this was the wrong choice. This is my first Miranda Dickinson book and it will certainly be my last. It's an example of badly written, cliche ridden chick lit that makes me cringe to listen to. Jane Collingwood can narrate well but on this occasion her narration is patronising and grating.

Not this one.

This story is just boring boring cannot believe it was written by Miranda Dickinson. I read Fairytale of New York by this author and loved it so bought this book cannot compare them. I like Jane Collingwood and she did a good job on the few chapters I could manage.
