Book Review: I Heart New York by Lindsey Kelk

I Heart New York is the first in the I Heart series by Lindsey Kelk and it is fabulous! I accidentally read the latest book in the series first which I loved so the lovely Charlotte from Harper kindly sent me the first two books so that I could start from the beginning.
Angela Clarke flees to New York after she finds her boyfriend Mark with his pants round his ankles cheating on her with his new tennis partner. She shuts herself away in a glamorous hotel and starts abusing the mini-bar. Jenny, the hotel's concierge comes to the rescue, she picks Angela up and shows her the glorious city of New York. Soon Angela has a new wardrobe, new hair, a new writing job plus dates with two very eligible men. She has to decide whether New York is going to be her new life or whether she must stop running away and return to face the music at home.
Angela Clarke is the best part of the book for me, as a character I find her entirely believable. She is a Libran like me so completely indecisive and always trying to create some kind of balance in her life. The relationship that she forges with Jenny is also a really important part of the book. Jenny is exactly the kind of friend that every girl needs, always there with a bottle of wine and a shoulder to cry on but also not afraid to point out when you are wrong about something.
I cannot recommend these books by Lindsey Kelk enough, they're so good and I can't wait to find out what happens in I Heart Hollywood.

I remember your review of the other I Heart book and since then have been looking out for them, although I haven't seen them in any of the bookshops here in HKG. I really want to read them so I have asked my neice to pick up a copy of I Heart New York from England and bring it out with her when she comes to visit in a couple of weeks time. Can't wait to read it.
Thanks for a great review, Dot and if you happen to speak to the folks at Harpers at all please ask them where I might find these books in Hong Kong.
