This week I'm sharing:

Here's the synopsis:

Can Andi Evans find the strength to start again?

Betrayed and broken-hearted, redundancy is one shock too many for Andi. Suddenly single and in debt, a working holiday in the Cornish seaside town of Rock appears the perfect solution. Determined never to trust again, will a chance meeting with a stranger change her mind?

Disillusioned with useless boyfriends, Angel is set on finding a man who will keep her in style. Heading to Rock, summer playground of the rich and the royals, seems an inspired move until a case of mistaken identity threatens a romance that has started to mean more than she expected...

Actress Gemma is no stranger to diets and disappointments. When the future of her career hangs in the balance, she prays moving to Rock solves her problems. With a new reality TV show being filmed in the idyllic seaside town, surely she can avoid pasties and ice creams for long enough to win a role?

Arriving in beautiful Cornwall, all three girls are hoping for a holiday season to remember. But will this be for the right reasons? Or, as emotions run higher than the tide, will the summer escape turn their lives upside down?


Here are my thoughts:
I freaking love British chick lit.  This wasn't the stereotypical chick lit though- it was witty, hilarious, and had the dry sense of humor that only the British do so well.  I could have just sat on my couch and read this book forever.  It was refreshing, and not predictable- I actually thought I had it all figured out at first, but I was wrong.  It all just turned out beautifully.

I seriously could go on and on about how good this book was...instead, I'll spend the rest of this post begging the author, Ruth Saberton, to let me review all of her books and take me on a Cornish holiday.  Or just let me review her books?  Pretty please?

This review is part of the Fictionella book tour:

I love British writing/humor as well. This book is similar to the one I reviewed in that it tells the story of three different ladies. Sounds interesting! Thanks for hosting the link-up!
