So when she lands in the Hollywood Hills – a place that proves film stars, golden beaches and secret waterfalls don’t just exist in the movies – she can’t resist playing matchmaker for her handsome neighbour, carpenter Ren. What a heartwarming, fun and hilarious rom-com that takes place in the amazing city of Los Angeles, California!

I didn’t think she was going to play an active role in the story, but boy was I wrong and I’ve never been more proud to be. I’m really hoping there might be a sequel in the future as I’d love to spend more time with Phoebe, Ren, Bel and the gang. Born and brought up in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, she worked in London as a children’s editor before writing her first book, I Heart New York, and moving to Brooklyn. I won't give spoilers about her connection with Ren, but the book is worth reading just for the charming, fun, sweet, snarky, etc.I loved that Phoebe's relationship with her sister was flawed, as because of this we got to see some beautiful bonding moments, and I was glad they were able to develop their relationship further. I found myself turning the pages faster with each delightful revelation, a smile spreading deeper across my face. Born and brought up in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, Lindsey worked in London as a children’s editor before writing her first book, I Heart New York , and moving to Brooklyn. Instead of a Twilight TV series (and don't get me wrong, I'm a not-so-secret Twihard), let's get this one the big screen instead.

Phoebe is visiting her sister in LA for a few weeks, whilst desperately trying to keep her mind of her ex and his upcoming wedding. The characters felt very real – they all have their own history, imperfections (okay, maybe not Ren, he seems pretty perfect.Phoebe Chapman is another typical hapless character Kelk has brought to us, filled with the woes of a life that isn't going anywhere, a failed romance, and a job that used to ignite passion, but is now just bringing feelings of. She has her flaws and she has a past btu she has come to LA for a break from her life and it was great sharing her adventure. With the help of Phoebe's poetic writing skills she plays matchmaker for the two, all while pushing her own growing feelings for Ren aside. To begin with she gave me Sunset Boulevard vibes but then she also has a little bit of Elizabeth Taylor meets Moira Rose about her. Overall, I loved this book and I really hope we have the chance to see the other characters stories in a future book.

The Beatles' song kept playing in my head as background music during my reading of this sweet and heartfelt retelling of Cyrano DeBergerac with a gender-reverse twist, reminiscent of a heartwarming holiday movie. Speechify lets you listen to any text, including all books in the world with the best voices out there! Her sister is a fun character too and I enjoyed the ying and yang of their relationship and then her sister’s neighbour Ren is a great addition to the character line-up.Phoebe also meets Ren, her sisters hunky birdwatching neighbor, and instantly develops a crush on him before she finds out that Bel has been crushing on him for ages and needs Phoebe’s help to finally make a connection. I've read plenty of books set in LA, but something about this escape into the Hollywood Hills felt different; more intimate and soft.

I loved all the locations I got to travel to with phoebe and her new friends, it really was a great experience to be had through the pages of the book. But instead Phoebe finds herself alone in a beautiful home and roped into a matchmaking scheme between Bel, her sister's personal trainer, and the handsome bird-obsessed man next door, Ren. Everyone thinks poor Phoebe can’t handle that her ex is about to be remarried and insists on her living large and having fun.The storyline is a modern day, semi-take on Cyrano where Phoebe, who is exceptionally bright and funny, doesn't think she is pretty or appealing enough to attract a hot man. The only steamy scene took place toward the very end of the book and truthfully, you could blink and miss it. The dynamics between Phoebe and Bel, Phoebe and Suze, and Phoebe and Myrna can carry this book just fine. I loved everything from start to finish - Phoebe's relationship with her sister and their grandma, the LA Sunshine and summer vibes, MYRNA WAS EVERYTHING, the small appearance of Disneyland, the rom com vibes, dealing with grief and trauma. Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for an early digital copy in exchange for my honest review!
