Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella
What is it about:
Lara Lington has always had an overactive imagination, but suddenly that imagination seems to be in overdrive. Normal professional twenty-something young women don’t get visited by ghosts. Or do they?
When the spirit of Lara’s great-aunt Sadie (a feisty, demanding girl with firm ideas about fashion, love, and the right way to dance) mysteriously appears, she has one last request: Lara must find a missing necklace that had been in Sadie’s possession for more than seventy-five years, and Sadie cannot rest without it. Lara, on the other hand, has a number of ongoing distractions. Her best friend and business partner has run off to Goa, her start-up company is floundering, and she’s just been dumped by the “perfect” man.
Sadie, however, could care less.
What did Voodoo Bride think of it:
I will confess I read the first Shopaholic book by Kinsella and although I liked her writing style, the story itself wasn't for me. So when I saw this book I decided to give Kinsella another chance and I'm very glad I did as I love Twenties Girl!
Lara is a character you can't help loving although she clearly needs to learn to stand up for herself, while Sadie is so spoilt I wanted to kick her at several occasions. As Lara is the only one who can see Sadie, the girls have to learn to work together and both learn a lot in the proces of finding Sadie's necklace. Kinsella's writing style is light, funny and fluffy with a romance added to it that I really enjoyed, which makes this book perfect reading material when you just want to relax and enjoy an easy read.
All in all I think I might pick up other Kinsella books in the future although I will stay away from the Shopaholic series.
Why should you read it:
It's an easy, fluffy romantic read.
