I am actually not really into chic-lit genre. Once I felt in love with Sophie Kinsella with her fabulous shopaholic series but after that I stop reading any chic-lit. I just found that it's not too engaging anymore. But recently looking at my tight teaching schedule, I suddenly thought that I needed a simple book to read. I chose this book written by British author, Lindsey Kelk, just because I was attracted with the title and the cover (yep..a very strong reason).
The story is about a Londoner, Angela Kelk who is having a broken heart and tries to run from her daily life. Out of the blue she finally decides to go to New York (for the first time) and hopes that she might recover there. Angela's days then filled with some new friends who turn out to be really supportive in helping her to cope with her broken heart.
Let's follow Angela's days in New York, the city that never sleeps. She has a make over, some serious retail therapy and of course the tour of the city. She's also dating two sexy guys and gets opportunity to blog about her escapade for a fashion magazine.
Not so special story actually, just a fun, light read that celebrate New York. But for me it does good for my short me-time. This book is one of I Heart series, there are I Heart London, I Heart Paris, I Heart Vegas, etc. If you adore chic-lit genre, you're going to love these series.
