Holly's Inbox: Scandal in the City
Holly's Inbox: Scandal in the City is a great example of British chick lit, even if it was written by a man :-) In this book, second in a series but very readable as a stand alone since that is how I read it, Holly is in the market for a promotion at work, she is ready to step it up in her relationship with her boyfriend but she has some serious doubts about her worthiness, and she is surrounded by a crazy crew of friends and coworkers. This book is told entirely through email messages and while this book is huge, it flies because of the format, the humor and the way the characters are developed through these email messages. Holly reminded me a little of Bridget Jones, in that she was a likable but somewhat clueless character. I will go back and read the first book in the series at some point because I did enjoy the characters so much and want to see the begin of them. I heartily recommend this book to readers of chick lit. I enjoyed it a lot.
This book was sent to me by SourceBooks to review.
