Thanks to her friend Danielle, she now has a job interview at the largest advertising company in Chicago - Gordon-Taylor. She ends up getting a job predicting trends for the company's newsletter, The Pulse, which is sent out to all their clients. There are a few catches to the job. It requires her to fly back and forth between New York and L.A. She also has to work with Jen Savage on the project. While Lindsey is in New York, Jen is in L.A. and vice versa.
Lindsey soon finds out that New York is a whole different place than Chicago. Asking random people to do a questionnaire is not as easy as it looks on television as some people are really rude. Even getting into a new shopping store is a challenge for her. Everything seems to be a complete disaster until she meets a Wall Street Broker, Victor Ragsdale.
Finding trends in L.A. seems a lot easier for her and so is finding another love interest, Danny Wynn, a California surfer.
Bicoastal Babe is not my typical read, but once I learned that it is going to be a new CW series called Trending, I decided to give it a try. I was laughing hysterically by the end of chapter one as Lindsey embarrassed herself in front of her ex. The character maybe a twenty-eight-year-old, but she has a lot of growing up to, especially in her attitude and her occasional use of a certain four letter word.Read more ›
From the first page, Lindsey Miller calls to me. She is awkwardly right and she reminds me a lot of well…me in different ways. And I’m sure Lindsey Miller will touch your heart and make you giggle as you read about her latest guffaw and chuckle as she drives by her ex boyfriend’s house for the millionth time and is caught, and yes Lindsey will make you laugh out loud as she gets booted out of her new apartment by her roommate and is made to wait out in the hallway as the couple on the other side of the door continue to have sex.
At the opening of Bicoastal Babe, Lindsey Miller has lost her long time boyfriend, and is caught doing a drive by of his house. Humiliated, she drives home only to be fired from her job the next day. Depressed, she secludes herself for months in her apartment to the point where it looks like a junkyard of pizza boxes and used Kleenex. Exasperated, her trio of friends breaks into her apartment when she won’t let them in, never showing an ounce of sympathy, they steamroll her into a job interview for an ad agency. Her dream job. Not really trusting that dreams do come true; Lindsey never the less buys a power suit and walks into a fiasco of a career.
Her new job? Fashion trend forecaster. Flying from Los Angeles one week and New York the next, asking random people on the street corner what they like and don’t like about the current fashion trends. Between figuring out how to succeed in smoozing people and trying to contend with her new roommate who is also her partner in the job, Jen; Lindsey hasn’t got the time for men. Or does she?

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book
Bicoastal Babe is one humorous read. Poor Lindsay isn't recovering from a recent breakup with the man she thought she'd marry. When he catches her stalking his house, and losing her job, Lindsay goes into a massive depression. She spends weeks without showering, ordering pizza, and lazing about her house smoking incessantly. Finally her friends have enough and decide to help Lindsay get back out there. She gets a job as a trend tracker, living in Los Angeles one week and then traveling to New York the next, in the hopes of finding out what the next biggest thing is going to be in fashion, food, etc.
Lindsay spends a lot of the book moping about nearly everything. She isn't very confident in her job and nearly loses it several times; if it weren't for her boss, Liz, bailing her out in the beginning, I'm pretty sure she would have ended up back on her Chicago couch eating pizza out of a box. I like how Liz was able to see more in Lindsey then Jen and even Lindsey herself could see. Once Liz boosted her confidence a bit, Lindsey was able to really concentrate on her work and realize she's really good at tracking trends.
Of course she has a boyfriend in New York and one in California. Neither knows about the other; only her LA friend, Carmen, and coworker, Jen, know about the men. I did cringe when Lindsay decides which man she wants, mostly because I thought she went with who was safe to her; which surprisingly wasn't whom anyone else would have found safe.
Overall I really liked the book, however, I disliked the ending...what a cliffhanger! I sure hope that Ms. Langston has another book in the works because that's just not a good way to end a book otherwise. WHAT HAPPENS?!
