Frankie works in a book store with her pregnant best friend Cat. She’s a lover of classic works as well as an author who stopped writing after her second book was panned. Keen to find a new man, the unlucky-in-love Frankie decides to leave copies of her favourite books on the train with a note asking the reader to contact her for a date. This works a treat and Frankie goes on several dates, inspiring her to start a blog about her experiences. But meanwhile she has met the charming Sunny – she can’t get him off her mind but he reads YA of all things!
This is a clever idea for a plot that will naturally resonate with book lovers. Frankie is a memorable character prone to getting herself into some hilarious situations. It’s a fun, witty read but it could have improved with some of the minor characters being either fleshed out more or left out altogether. I also would have liked a bit more resolution for Cat’s storyline. But overall well worth a read.
