Recommended Recent Reads - About a Girl by Lindsey Kelk

About a Girl by Lindsey Kelk (I heart series) book review

My favourite kind of books, apart from being of the chick-lit genre, are ones that are part of a series. I am incredibly lazy and it is very easy to get straight into these type of books, having previously got to know the characters. I tend to be a little slow on the uptake if an author has released a stand-alone book which is why it has taken me so long to read About a Girl – by Lindsey Kelk. Lindsey is the author of the popular I Heart . . series which I strongly recommend. They start off with a very impromptu flit to New York and is the story of her new life that builds there . . none of us want to go to NY do we girls? ;)


I finished About a Girl  last week, loved it and am eagerly awaiting the sequel being released next month. Tess has been giving everything to her job since university and so when she is made redundant she is understandably at a loss, job and life wise. When she picks up her horrible housemate Vanessa’s phone she ends up picking Vanessa’s job of a photography shoot in Hawaii. Pretending to be Vanessa comes with a few personality changes, a lovely (debatable at times!) leading man and breathtaking scenery.


I will leave the description there but needless to say secrets have to come out in the end. Although Tess was pretending to be Vanessa, her personality wasn't completely false in Hawaii and I kept finding it hard to connect this Tess with the Tess at the beginning of the book. However I have to remember that I myself am different when I am at home than when I am at work. I loved how when you just say yes you can have amazing experiences. It is something I need to do myself more. The book finished where I think I can guess what will happen but I have to wait until next month to find out in What a Girl Wants.

About a Girl can be purchased from all your regular shops and stores. If you want to have a read about the books visit lindseykelk.com

I got into the spirit of the book by reading it on the beach in Wales on holiday. Wales isn't quite the same as Hawaii though . . .



Has anyone read any of these books? What good books have you read recently?
