Scarlett's character got even more likeable and I thoroughly enjoyed Oscar's exploits. Part 2 felt different and dare I say even childish. This book has everything you could want from a story — It has romance, it has drama, and it has some very funny moments…At times I was having trouble breathing because I was laughing so much, and not just laughing, crying with laughter! So when the opportunity arises to go to New York on the holiday of a lifetime, Scarlett and Oscar jump at the chance. It was so predictable - and the way Scarlett abuses her dad in exactly the same way as the last book totally pee'd me off. I started it a few hours ago and could not put it down.
Oscar - I adored Oscar, he was the best bit in the book and it wouldn't be such a read without him. Usually though there's a cute, endearing storyline to redeem the book. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. It is such an easy read and fun that I would recommend this book. Nonetheless it was easy to read, which is the only reason this book got two stars. Scarlett finds herself strangely drawn to Jamie, they appear to have much in common: a love of films and Jamie's search for a parent he never knew.
It lived up to all the expectations I had from the first book and then some. Oscar and she start to discover the answers to some mysteries, the dragonfly pin, why was it in among her fathers' thin Another great read found at my local library. Though, why was he obsessed with movies as well when that was a trait she got from her mother rather than her dad? She is the sort of girl you wish you knew in real life. The main character, Scarlet was hard to like and I wasn't convinced about her relationship with Sean at all, they w Oh dear me, this was dreadful. It was such a head warming tale. Both are fantastic reads and I cannot wait to read about Scarlett again, I hope the wait isn't too long. The situations she ends up in are completely ridiculous I'm sure if I almost dropped a set of expensive crystal vases during a charity auction, Bradley Cooper would probably crucify me, not praise and love me even more.
Its front door is always open for those in need of shelter, and there's always a plentiful supply of food in the cupboards for the hungry or poor. A wafer thin plot, trying desperately to recapture the zest of the prequel, but not quite managing it. But something happened to my sister. And the last chapters when Scarlett is chasing after the clues were just too much for me. Under the benevolent leadership of the Immortal Emperor, the Imperium of Man hasstretched out across the galaxy.
It is a golden age of discovery and conquest. Part of the problem for me was that I worked out the 'big twist' very early on it wasn't difficult, believe me , and as the tension relied on that twist, the rest of story was sadly lacking in any sort of dramatic tension or frankly interest for me. I really did love the ending! I just know that when she came back, she wasn't the same. It's a haven for tourists and locals alike, who all come to eat the freshest local produce on the island and catch up with the gossip. She's so one-dimensional, she's pretentious, shallow etc In the first book, she had an endearing Romcom style storyline that totally saved her. It baffles me why women are wasting their time reading terribly written books mentioning no names when there are amazing books like this waiting to be read.
The first person view point worked really well for this novel where sometimes it can get a little frustrating. Rellay nice, fast reading, sometimes just too obvious and too cliche. But Poppy Carmichael's spirits aren't lifted by the pretty West Country spring. Darcy has to leave behind her independent city life and swap stylish heels for muddy wellies. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it - in her own words and on her own terms. I guarantee you will enjoy it more. Promoted to Warmaster, can the idealistic Horus carry out the Emperor's grand plan, or will this promotion sow the seeds of heresy amongst his brothers? When I found out that Ali was writing a sequel to From Notting Hill With Love.
Scarlett O'Brien, utterly addicted to romantic films, has found her leading man. The answers are with in the covers of this book, From Notting Hill to New York. Her waiting list is months long, but even she can't turn down the unorthodox but highly lucrative crisis call that comes her way a few weeks before Christmas, regarding the troublesome - and troubled - head of an esteemed whisky company in Scotland: Lochlan Farquhar, a maverick, an enigma and a renegade. I just really struggled to not roll my eyes at how it all worked out for Scarlett and everyone just laughed it off. Everyone spends the book telling her she is wonderful and hilarious and kind and fantastic snore snore.
Ali McNamara is a fantastic author and has created an amazing character in Scarlett. I started reading it at the start of this month and at first I couldn't really get into it and I thought I would end up not being able to finish it but then finally after my exams were over I decided I would sit there and just read and I just loved it. It is fun, it is fresh and it is addictive. If you don't know who is Mark Darcy, why Notting Hill is so important or what are the movies that Hugh Grant starred in I advise you to take some time and see the movies before reading the book. I think they are well written and each is developed with enough time dedicated to them - but I just don't find them likeable. Ana knows that it's a sign: she'll make sure that the messages reach the person that they were meant for. This is basically just a chick lit book written by the author to get stay alive.
