Summary

Dreamy, scatty, and impossibly romantic, Polly McLaren is a secretary in an advertising agency, but the day a stranger on a train catches her eye, her life changes for ever. This American Romeo, who's recognised her old school scarf, begs Polly to help him find his missing Juliet. Over an intoxicating dinner at the Savoy, Polly agrees to play Cupid and her investigations begin. The last thing she needs now, however, is trouble from the men in her life.

Dated

Good story and lighthearted with humour however the voice of reader sounds like an older lady than the character of the story which ruins it and her accent sounds like she's to be someone she's not .

Entertaining, but tiresome at times

There were several parts of this book that I enjoyed, but the main character was so ditzy and clueless at some points that I felt like giving up on the book because it frustrated me so much. The long-winded descriptions also made it hard to listen to. I felt like fast-forwarding at certain points. It could have been half the length and been much more entertaining. Similar to the Shopaholic series in some ways, although this one was written first. Not the best "chicklit" I've listened to, but not too bad if you're willing to stick it out until the end.

Quite enjoyable

I really liked this book! It was entertaining & made me laugh. The main character was really very likable, even though she did have her "ditzy and clueless" moments, but its a story, and not to be taken so seriously. I found the characters believable and it was all quite charming. Plus, the narrator is excellent! I would highly suggest listening to this book.
