Lindsey Kelk- I heart London Review


Hi Guys

I have finally finished the I heart series I don't think that I am going to read I heart Christmas for a whole year because I find it has gone past the acceptable time of year to start reading Christmas books.

Blurb:

Home is where the heart is. Right? Angela Clark has fallen in love with America -- and it's starting to love her back. Throw one expired visa into the mix, and things quickly take a turn for the worse. She might love her life as a Brit in New York, but now she has no choice but to return to London. Not only does she leave behind her gorgeous boyfriend Alex -- she must also face unfinished business back on home turf. There's the ex-boyfriend -- who she moved to New York to get away from. Then there's her best friend, with her perfect new baby. And there's her mum. Now, there's another wedding in the offing -- and everyone remembers how well the last one went ...

My Review:
 This book starts off about 6 months after  the end of the last book and Angela's now trying to launch her new magazine venture. She's also failed to let her mum know she's engaged so her mum's not happy to find out from someone in the supermarket! Mrs Clark demands Angela comes back to England and brings Alex "that musician" with her. That's when the fun and games begin ...

I  love Lindsey Kelk  due to the descriptions of the clothes, shoes, accessories etc that Angela and her highly fashionable friends wear. The books are written with perfectly timed humour too, making for a perfect, easy, laugh out loud read which is something you need after reading books for uni. 

I like the way that Angela has changed over the course of the I Heart series. She's grown up, changed her life and career for the better, and found absolute true love with Alex. She still has far to many dramas for the average person but that's why I love her! I love Alex for always being there for Angela, even after her many mess ups. He's dependable but also exciting and sexy. I love Jenny and all the high drama she brings wherever she goes. I really don't think the books would be the same without her! I love her quick wit and amazing put downs or retorts, or just her assessment of a situation.

In this book we got to know more about Angela's friends and family (and her ex, Mark) and that was fun and I think it was a good way to end the series letting us know more about the main character.

Angela's mum got on my nerves a bit at first with her constant criticism of "the American/s" like they were from another planet, I think that was point though but as the book went on. I loved her and how she supported Angela regardless and wanted what was best for her only daughter. 

Angela's dad was adorable! He bonded with Alex over 70's music and a bottle of JD, and went along with Jenny's list of things to do for fear of reprisal! 

I liked Louisa and how she stood up to Jenny, not many people would have the nerve, especially when you've just had a baby and are juggling all that that involves too! 

I HATED Mark, the ex. What a nerve he had!! At least he got what was coming to him! 

This book had me laughing out loud on many occasions. I smiled in delight and felt mushy inside at some of the heart to heart scenes with Angela and Alex. I thought the ending was perfect, even though I'd convinced myself of the same thing Angela's mum had. I think the ending that had been written was perfect though

I can without hesitation recommend this book, I have loved reading it just as much as the previous four in the series. Go out and buy it if you have not read this book

Have you read the book if so what did you think?

  1. The I Heart series are probably my fave series of books other than Harry Potter. I loved Angela from the minute we met her in book 1! In all honesty, I wish I was her! I'd love to drop everything and move to New York! I can't wait to re-read them all again!
