How to Find Your (First) Husband (2016)

 

Isobel Graves left England to make it as a TV presenter in glamorous LA. But after two years spent dressed as a prawn or a tomato handing out leaflets, she decides she has had enough and wants to try to get the life she keeps dreaming about. A life that involves her childhood husband Andrew Parker. She only needs to find him. Flying from LA to London to a small island in Malaysia, Iz faces hilarious challenges in search of the man who could be The One. This is a hilariously brilliant novel. I loved the character of Isobel – she’s funny, sweet, a good friend, and a Harry Potter lover (“I do secretly believe that if I hope enough somewhere Hogwarts does exist and one day I will receive my letter telling me I am a witch and I can go there and my patronus would be a squirrel.”). I kept laughing out aloud at the funny and weird situations in which she found herself in, from the attack of a family of monkeys to cleaning turtle poo from a tank. A real page-turner I couldn’t put down. (NP)


 

How to Stuff Up Christmas (2015)

 

After finding out that her fiance cheated on her, Eve decides to take a break from her work and her glamorous life in London to spent a month in a small village on the Isle of Wight to learn pottery. While she tries to get over her heartbreak, she meets the handsome Greg, who teaches her to cook and to enjoy life again. But Greg is hiding something and Eve is not sure she can trust him. This funny and enjoyable story set during Christmas includes recipes that made me wish it was already Christmas. The characters are funny and lovable and Eve’s hilarious and nosy family made me laugh out aloud. How to Stuff Up Christmas is romantic, atmospheric, and entertaining and I really enjoyed reading it.

How To Get A (Love) Life (2014)

Nicola Brown is a super-organised girl, who is also extremely conscious about what passes through her lips. Her punctuality is her forte. She's also dedicated, passionate and single. So when Nicola is dared by a colleague to go on as many dates as possible in order to find her Valentine, she hastily accepts and her quest for love begins. If it was only that easy to find true love! After going on way too many crazy, weird and disastrous dates, Nicola starts to feel that she may never find the right man but her destiny is not going to let her down - not this time. This book has some really strong characters and there's plenty of humour. I could relate to Nicola totally but sometimes she is just not herself. I love Rosie's writing but at places I felt it needed some work. Overall, it's a nice, quick read perfect for a weekend escape. (SS)
