The Last Word (2014)

 

Blogger Tabby is offered an opportunity to become a real journalist again, with a job offer from an online newspaper. Trouble is she's still burnt from her last experience with the mainstream media - and her affair with her cad of an editor. So she's naturally hesitant about this job - especially since she'd be working closely with a new editor, Harry, a good looking, overly confident guy who's not afraid to share his opinion of her work. OK, blogging, media ... this sounded right up my alley. But I lost interest fairly early on. Tabby's got a bit of sass, Harry's quick-witted and charming and there's plenty of heat between them but in terms of a storyline nothing interesting happened. The blogging also didn't feature enough and the media environment didn't come across as authentic. The most satisfying part, I'm afraid to say, was reaching that last word and breathing a sigh of relief it was over.


 

My So-Called (Love) Life (2015)

 

Tigerlily and her friends, Ame and Dana, meet up for regular Misery Dinners. Tig is still getting over being dumped five days before her wedding, Ame is going through a divorce and Dana is grieving the loss of a loved one. When Tig's former fiance, Darren, sends her an invitation to his wedding, a charming barman named Ollie offers to be her plus-one - and coach her in the fine art of dating over the next three months. Then he's clearing off overseas. Trouble is soon Tig's getting used to having her fake boyfriend around - and there's definitely something real about the feelings she's got for him. This is a light and easy read, written in a way that would definitely make me seek out the author's other books. There's nothing special about the plot but it's an enjoyable read, nonetheless. It would have been nice to have seen the friend characters developed more - for example, it was never fully explained what happened with Dana and whoever Elodie was.
