Phoebe is nearly 34 years old (very important) single, has a passion for buying (un) designer clothes, blueberry muffins and pork pies. She works in a department store, lives in a flat which is due to be taken over so has an inevitable rent raise. Her mother is constantly comparing her to her sister and reminding her about her biological clock.
Her biggest concern though is finding a suitable date for the Guildhall Ball. She has recently been dumped by Ashby .. does she want to woo him back?
This is such an hilarious account of Phoebe's life. Her friends are brilliantly supportive and a major part of this story in their own right. Best friends are Imogen and Mak , I particularly liked the banter between all of them. Mak and Jasper's relationship is cute.
Feeling down and hopeless Phoebe decides to unleash all her feelings in her blog. This includes exactly what she thinks about anyone and everyone! This is a private blog though ... correct?
In a fruitless attempt to find a date she joins Tinder, some of the dates are excruciatingly painful to read .. poor Phoebe she really does attract some weirdo's. I loved Malcolm and the reaction at a party when he arrives with Phoebe. The 'bloody' steaks, the blisters, word-counts all delightful moments but there are SO many more!
Harry the next door neighbour caught my eye .. unfortunately he plays the drums .. loudly! How will Phoebe react to that?
There are some serious moments to balance the humour, the actions of Henry are dealt with well. The 'brat-face' nephew is so accurately depicted.
If you like a fast paced laugh a minute story then this is for you. All the characters are perfectly suited to the book and I connected with all of them .. at times I did wish Phoebe would just get her act together but ultimately she is lovably dumb. Another wonderful book from Lynda and I thank her for my ARC.
Secondly, who could possibly want to read another book about dating mishaps? This material seems way too trite for this author.
Despite all my misgivings, it didn't completely fail me and I thought 2 stars too severe for his piece of brain candy, but I'm hoping for much more creativity with the next book.
I liked that it was a blog written in the first person as you were getting the person's most personal thoughts, embarrassing or not.
