Summary

The streets of London are the perfect place to discover your dreams....

They may be twin sisters, but Lizzie and Penny Berry are complete opposites - Penny is blonde, thin and outrageous; Lizzie is quiet, thoughtful and, well, definitely not thin. But they both share a desperate desire to DO something with their lives.

When out of the blue they learn they have a grandmother living in Chelsea, who asks them to flat-sit her King's Road pad while she is in hospital, the girls' ambitions finally seem to be falling into place. But as they soon discover, it's not easy to become an it girl, and West End boys aren't at all like Hugh Grant.

Critic reviews

"Colgan always pulls it off.... West End Girls is very funny, very sweet and very entertaining." ( Image Magazine)
"A delicious comedy." ( Red)
"Sweeter than a bag of jelly beans...had us eating up every page." ( Cosmopolitan)
"Sheer indulgence from start to finish." (Sophie Kinsella)
"A Jenny Colgan novel is as essential for a week in the sun as Alka Seltzer, aftersun and far too many pairs of sandals." ( Heat)
"A Colgan novel is like listening to your best pal, souped up on vino, spilling the latest gossip - entertaining, dramatic and frequently hilarious." ( Daily Record)

Always a joy

As usual Jenny Colgan never fails to deliver. It's a straight forward story with a happy ending. It's perfect reading whether it's a heady summer or a bleak winter! The story will make you feel all warm and cuddly and there's none of that hurry up and get on with business.
