I'd say the romance is more of a subplot, but it was super sweet while also bringing an opportunity for Phoebe to reflect on healing from a previous abusive relationship. With every turn of the page, I found myself immersed in Phoebe's world, feeling her emotions, and cheering her on as she navigated the complexities of love and relationships. Unfortunately, her workaholic sister has to take an emergency business trip and leaves Phoebe all alone to entertain herself. Whilst this book is so much fun, there are also a few more serious topics in the book handled with such care and tact that I couldn't not mention as both were written about so brilliantly.
When discussing her latest novel, Lindsey said how it had taken time to adjust to life in LA but loves it now and this story is almost a love letter to LA itself. Caught up with writing love letters and an unexpected friendship with a reclusive 82-year-old film star, Phoebe finds herself falling for the real Los Angeles – but is that all she’s falling for? The Beatles' song kept playing in my head as background music during my reading of this sweet and heartfelt retelling of Cyrano DeBergerac with a gender-reverse twist, reminiscent of a heartwarming holiday movie.Her sister is a fun character too and I enjoyed the ying and yang of their relationship and then her sister’s neighbour Ren is a great addition to the character line-up. While Suzanne thinks that Phoebe is hoping for a much needed break, the reality is: her ex is getting married in a few days. I didn’t think she was going to play an active role in the story, but boy was I wrong and I’ve never been more proud to be. She has her flaws and she has a past btu she has come to LA for a break from her life and it was great sharing her adventure. I loved watching Phoebe grow as she realized it is OK to advocate for herself and that sharing with others does not make you weak.
I’m really hoping there might be a sequel in the future as I’d love to spend more time with Phoebe, Ren, Bel and the gang.Lindsey’s novels include the I Heart series, On a Night Like This, and One in a Million, as well as the children’s book series, Cinders and Sparks. Instead of a Twilight TV series (and don't get me wrong, I'm a not-so-secret Twihard), let's get this one the big screen instead.
