About A Girl by Lindsey Kelk

About A Girl


Tess Brookes lost her job, the guy she was in love with and she had fallen out with her mum and her best friend so when she answered the phone and got mistaken for her awful flat mate, Vanessa, she decided to take the opportunity to fly to Hawaii for a photography assignment meant for Vanessa.


I have to be honest, that is all I can tell you about the story as that’s as far as I got before I had to give up with it. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely adore Lindsey Kelk but I think I have been rather spoilt with the I Heart series. I did try to tear myself away from her usual writing and I can imagine I may have to do the same with the likes of Sophie Kinsella writing as Madeleine Wickham.

Although I have read The Single Girls To Do List and thoroughly enjoyed it but unfortunately I just couldn’t get into this book at all. I did find the first few pages hilarious but once Tess had arrived in Hawaii, I found that the story started to drag on abit. Speaking personally, I tend to get abit bored when the story gets too descriptive, I dont need to know that there was a fish tank in the room, or the walls were painted blue unless I am playing detective to a game of Cluedo (then its a different story). This is just my opinion however, and I know that quite a lot of readers out there enjoy getting into all the detail but it just wasn’t for me.

As I’ve said, I do love Lindsey Kelk books but for some reason I just couldn’t get into this book at all, bit too much “feeling sorry for myself” when it comes to Tess. It won’t stop me from reading other Lindsey Kelk books available but hopefully the next ones will be able to have a more positive review. Sorry Lindsey…


I give this book 4/10
