Review: Lindsey Kelk –I Heart New York (Book)

Image of Lindsey Kelk‘Lindsey Kelk is a British writer and children’s book editor. When she isn’t writing, reading, listening to music or watching more TV than is healthy, Lindsey likes to wear shoes, shop for shoes and judge the shoes of others. She loves living in New York but misses Sherbert Fountains, London and drinking Gin & Elderflower cocktails with her friends. Not necessarily in that order.’

Blurb – “It’s official. Angela Clark is in love – with the most fabulous city in the world.

Fleeing her cheating boyfriend and clutching little more than a crumpled bridesmaid dress, a pair of Louboutins and her passport, Angela jumps on a plane – destination NYC.

Holed up in a cute hotel room, Angela get a New York makeover from her NBF Jenny and a whirlwind tour of the city that never sleeps. Before she knows it, Angela is dating two sexy guys. And, best of all, she gets to write about it in her new blog (Carrie Bradshaw eat your heart out). But it’s one thing telling readers about your romantic dilemmas, it’s another thing figuring them out for yourself…

Angela has fallen head over heels for the big apple, but does she heart New York more than home?”

This book can only be described as amazing, it’s light hearted, funny and the main character, Angela lark, is likeable from the very beginning. There is a fun story that flows all through the things that many people wish to do in NYC!

This is definitely a summer feel good book – being a ‘girly’ and romantic book it isn’t likely to capture the attention of a male audience but I’m sure that isn’t what the Author, Lindsey Kelk set out to do.

The main character, Angela Clark, is a likeable, funny character who I’m sure a lot of young women will be able to identify with, another reason that makes this book so great.

After reading the book the reader is left wanting to visit NYC so the section at the back of the book, ‘Angela’s Guide to NYC’ is just an added bonus detailing places to stay, eat and visit if you were to go there yourself.

This book can only be summed up as chicklit at it’s best, featuring everything that you could want from this genre, heartbreak, love, triumph, bad boys, hot boys and not to mention a whole heap of girl power. Perfect for a night in on your own or for relaxing by the pool with – whatever you decide I’m sure it’ll be a book that you won’t be able to put down from page one!
