From Notting Hill With Love . . . Actually
By Ali McNamara
A fabulously fun romantic comedy debut, referencing all those much-loved chick flick classics: Four Weddings; Sleepless in Seatle; When Harry Met Sally, to name just a few!
She was just a girl, standing in front of a boy . . . wishing he looked more like Hugh Grant.
Scarlett loves the movies. But does she love sensible fianc? David just as much? With a big white wedding on the horizon, Scarlett really should have decided by now . . .
When she has the chance to house-sit in Notting Hill - the setting of one of her favourite movies - Scarlett jumps at the chance. But living life like a movie is trickier than it seems, especially when her new neighbour Sean is so irritating. And so irritatingly handsome, too.
Scarlett soon finds herself starring in a romantic comedy of her very own: but who will end up as the leading man?

The book is a great read and I devoured it in two days, I was unable to put it down, I had to read on. I was laughing and crying with the characters and at times shouting out. . . The author's love of the films came through in the writing . . . they were cleverly woven into the story and did not distract from the storyline at all . . . I recommend it to all chick lit and chick flick fans alike — Sarah Broadhurst, sbroadhurstreviews.blogspot.com
