About this deal

This was a fun vacation romance that sees Phoebe Chapman coming to visit her sister in LA in an attempt to be away while her ex gets married. I found myself turning the pages faster with each delightful revelation, a smile spreading deeper across my face. It has all of Lindsey’s usual ingredients - humour, romance, a loveable cast of characters, wit…but I just felt like it was giving even more.

ITS 1:30 AM AND I JUST WROTE A WHOLE ASS REVIEW ON MY PHONE AND THE APP CRASHED RIGHT AS I FINISHED THE LAST LINE. I'd say the romance is more of a subplot, but it was super sweet while also bringing an opportunity for Phoebe to reflect on healing from a previous abusive relationship. Born and raised in South Yorkshire, Lindsey lived in Nottingham, London and New York before settling in Los Angeles, where she lives with her husband and three very rude cats. Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for an early digital copy in exchange for my honest review! Born and brought up in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, Lindsey worked in London as a children’s editor before writing her first book, I Heart New York , and moving to Brooklyn.As well as writing books, Lindsey co-hosts the award-winning beauty podcast, Full Coverage, and Tight and Fights, a pro-wrestling podcast on the Maximum Fun network. I absolutely loved Myrna, an old Hollywood actress, she really was a huge highlight of this one for me. It was great to see her grow more confident in herself as she settled into LA and made some great new friends. And while the IHeart series will always hold a special place in my heart I feel like each book she releases gets better and better!

What ensues is a delightful portrayal of finding oneself again in platonic friendship, honest family relationships, and even taking chances on romantic love! I've read plenty of books set in LA, but something about this escape into the Hollywood Hills felt different; more intimate and soft.I didn’t think she was going to play an active role in the story, but boy was I wrong and I’ve never been more proud to be. They have a wonderful meet cute and you just know from their meeting that Ren is going to add quite the intrigue to the novel.

Phoebe is visiting her sister in LA for two weeks in hopes of forgetting her toxic ex and his upcoming wedding. This book is hilarious, endearing, and, if you haven’t gathered by that triple digit number, so relatable. Phoebe finds herself falling for the city and, despite resisting to confess, she begins to fall in love with the man she's trying to matchmake with another woman.

The plot starts off with a crisis, a woman trying to discovering what she wants, getting involved with new people.

The book is so unique and not like your typical rom-com and it will have you smiling, laughing and swooning! Her meet cute with phoebe also includes fences like Ren’s does so there’s a definite theme going on here. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.The dynamics between Phoebe and Bel, Phoebe and Suze, and Phoebe and Myrna can carry this book just fine. When discussing her latest novel, Lindsey said how it had taken time to adjust to life in LA but loves it now and this story is almost a love letter to LA itself.
