What they say:
‘A fun chick lit novel about naughty sex, true friendship, and finding love in unexpected places.
Warning: This book contains flashing images of a sizzling sexual nature, one night stands, beautiful dresses, various lush locations, unbelievably handsome men, love, and true friendship.
Just as twenty-five year old Poppy Phillpot gets her life back into gear a mammoth spanner is thrown into the erratic equation of her life – oops – an unplanned pregnancy. But for the love of a patchy memory, who’s the daddy? Rewind three months earlier (or thereabouts) to where it all began.
Poppy just about takes charge of her life, dumps the long-term boyfriend (King of Tedium), leaves the daily grind of coffee beans and heads for the Riviera. It’s full steam ahead to the glitzy world that is the Festival de Cannes. There she meets a strange foreign entity whilst blagging a new job where her qualifications are questionable. But like all good things it must come to an end, it’s just a pity it has to be at such high stakes. When will her life stop going pop, how many balloons does she really have left!’
What we say – review by Elizabeth Wright:
Now this is a rom-com written with style. It is clear from the very start that the author is both intelligent and has a wicked personality and this all comes across perfectly in the very likeable protagonist, Poppy. This book would cheer just about anyone up, but I can see it connecting with graduates in their mid to late twenties especially. The words Monty Python and fuzzy duck should be enough to convince you of this!
The insight that Whyle offers into the film industry comes from clear experience, and combined with the drive of Paige, this book will reassure everyone that a dream career is within reach. And then there is the steamy sexual tension! Overall this is one of the best books I’ve read this year. It’ll make you smile, get you hot under the collar and make you think. I found the ending a little too easy and predictable, not really in keeping with the rest of the book, but there’s no denying that it is a happy ending!
