Sweet-natured Daisy, assistant at a large publishing house, has two wishes in life. One, to discover the 'next big thing' in books and two, for her gorgeous, philandering boyfriend Miles to finally commit. But soon work starts looking up. When the thoughtful and witty Elliot Thornton comes in for a temporary placement, Daisy quickly forms a close friendship with him. But she'd never want to leave Miles for him, would she? Then, one day, while glancing through her rejection pile, she comes across the intriguing first pages of a novel. With spine-tingling excitement she emails the mysterious author straightaway, and as chapter by chapter slowly filter through to her, she becomes completely spellbound. (summary taken from Lorelei Mathias' website)MY THOUGHTS : Here is another "unputdownable" chick lit, so classic but so romantic! It made me smile more than once. Although the story is quite predictable and cliche, I stayed glued to the pages and couldn't wait for the happy ending to arrive. I loved the British humor, and I saw myself in the heroin quite often (not to mention I do kind of the same job as she does!). That's the kind of book you have to read on a comfy couch (or beach), with a big piece of cake or/and glass of wine. How chick-litty, but how entertaining!
