Summary: Katie Brenner is trying to live out her dream by working in branding in London, something she imagined doing since she was little growing up in the countryside. Everything is perfect, at least it is according to her Instagram account. When things start to unravel, what Katie values and thinks is true will be challenged.

Thoughts: Mediocre fluff. This book was zainy and lacked a basis in anything resembling reality. I liked the way the romantic lead was written, but otherwise I was just going with the flow despite my reservations. There were so many acts to this book that didn’t necessarily gel together and came off feeling compartmentalized. Its as if the author had a few straggling concepts for stories and decided to use them all in one book. It also felt long. Like a lot happened in this story and there was this weird bit of mystery and investigation that added very little to the plot. It just didn’t work in my opinion. Based on what I am saying you might wonder why I gave three starts to this book, and I am starting to question myself as well, but the book kept my interest enough to read it willingly and do so relatively quickly. Sophie Kinsella was one of the first authors I got into when I first graduated from college. I devoured her Shopaholic series, which I think I would have a hard time enjoying now. I think maybe I have just outgrown Sophie Kinsella and I’m okay with that.
