More About the Author
Lynne began ghostwriting full length non-fiction in 2007, when approached to co-author paraplegic Melanie Davies' incredible story, Never Say Die, and since that successful collaboration has been ghostwriting full time. Her 2010 title, for Faith Scott, I Won't Forgive What You Did, enjoyed seven weeks in the UK Sunday Times Bestseller list, as did the 2012 memoir The Baby Laundry. She also ghosted the acclaimed memoir Giant George: life with the World's Tallest Dog a bestselling title in both the UK and US.
More recently, Lynne ghosted two bestselling titles which were published in the spring of this year. The first, Mum's Way, is the story of mum of eight, Angie Millthorpe, who died of breast cancer, aged 48, in 2010. The second, The Girl With No Name, was published in May 13, and relates the story of a young girl abandoned in the jungles of Colombia, and has already been sold in eighteen countries, with film rights being negotiated and a National Geographic documentary being shown in December 13.
Lynne also co-writes a major non-fiction series for one of the world's leading publishers, under a pseudonym. The first seven titles have also all been Sunday Times bestsellers, with three more being published in 2013/14. The series was launched in the USA in 2013, and the first ebook in the series was a NY Times bestseller.
Lynne also writes about writing, as she teaches the craft weekly, at Cardiff University - her ebook NOVEL being the written distillation of her popular novel writing course.

Overall, when speaking about the storyline and characters, they were decent, but the ramblings of Lu were quite annoying sometimes. Sometimes phrases, the same phrase or variations of them, were stated several times with the intent to show Lu trying to rationalize a thought. I just thought it was frustrating to read when it happened. I HATED the Stefan character, and the part with the Trading Places show was just silly for me. Again, terms that must be used only in Wales made those pages with the Trading Places show tedious to read and I found myself skimming over them. I usually find myself wanting books to be longer, and I felt myself wanting this one to just get on with it already.
There's perhaps a wee bit too much going on in a Barrett-Lee novel and, in addition, we're in the protagonist's head perhaps more than I'd like, but the author does amuse the reader here with her take on things such as modern art, pretentious artists, home-decorating TV shows, etc.
The characters are flawed, vulnerable and very real. Our heroine Lu is a 35-year-old single mom who isn't sure what she wants to do with her life, rather indecisive about career moves and very fearful about romantic attachments (once bitten, twice shy). She gets involved with the tutor of the art class she enrolls in, and during the day she has a temp job working for a divorced businessman.
The relationships Lu develops with both have humorous moments and very real-world moments, not romanticized love. You'll be rooting for her to choose the right guy, maybe not sure at first that there is a "right" guy, but I think you'll be happy with the ending. And along the way, there are lots of secondary characters to meet, among them Lu's down-to-earth sister Del and Lu's co-worker at the office.
This is worth the read, if only to see how life is different yet similar across the Pond. I did do a bit of my own version of speed-reading at times when things were just a bit too off-on-a-tangent for me, but in general this is a pleasant read. I downloaded it when it was a free offering so it was a win-win situation.
There is a lot going on in the story - and I loved it all. For me - I was a die hard fan of "Trading Spaces" - the bit about being on reality tv was great - just so entertaining - and exactly how I imagined it really happened.
The changing of gears in the story was not completely smooth - there were a few times I would realize that we had switched and I needed to re-read a few sentences to catch myself up. And of course - all the british slang can be confusing. Every once in a while I have to google a word to know what it means, but most of the time, the setting explains it to me. For me, that is a part of the experience I enjoy. I love being immersed in the UK version of our language.
I loved Lu, and thoroughly enjoyed reading her thoughts and watching her get through her life.
All around - this was a really enjoyable read for me - and I will look for more by this author.

I agree with others it was hard to understand some references of British English but it was okay story wise for me. Probably wouldn't choose this author again. Sorry.Published on October 6, 2012 by Lynn
This book is fine for a super cheap Kindle read. The writing is not so great, but the story is fine - enough to keep me interested on my commute and not get angry at. :)Published on September 28, 2012 by Carra McKenzie
