LUCY HOLLIDAY

 

A Night in with Audrey Hepburn (2015)

 

Libby Lomax has always dreamt about being best friends with Audrey Hepburn. But after Libby manages to set her own hair alight in her first speaking acting role ā€“ albeit as a zitty alien ā€“ and subsequently gets fired, her life is about as far as you can get from that of the glamorous Breakfast at Tiffany's star. So when Audrey herself miraculously turns up in Libby's flat, Libby thinks she may just be losing her mind. But Audrey, it seems, is real and maybe just maybe she can help turn Libby's life around. This is an absolute chick lit cracker, whether you're familiar with Audrey Hepburn or not. I wasn't sure how Holliday was going to pull off the whole Hepburn resurrection and it could easily have been overplayed and become farcical, but Holliday manages it beautifully using the Hollywood starlet sparingly. And Libby Lomax is a quintessential chick lit heroine. Throw in alpha male and leading man Dillon and best friend Olly and we have the makings of an epic rollercoaster for the rest of the series. Olly, as well as Libby's brattish sister Cass and overbearing mum, were a bit underused and similarly the subplot with Libby's father. However none of this spoils a great first book and Iā€™m sure these issues will be explored in the next two highly anticipated books. (JC)
