Publisher Description

Katie Brenner has the perfect life: a flat in London, a glamorous job, and a super-cool Instagram feed.

OK, so the truth is that she rents a tiny room with no space for a wardrobe, has a hideous commute to a lowly admin job, and the life she shares on Instagram isn’t really hers.

But one day her dreams are bound to come true, aren’t they?

Until her not-so-perfect life comes crashing down when her mega-successful boss Demeter gives her the sack. All Katie’s hopes are shattered. She has to move home to Somerset, where she helps her dad with his new glamping business.

Then Demeter and her family book in for a holiday, and Katie sees her chance. But should she get revenge on the woman who ruined her dreams - or try to get her job back? Does Demeter – the woman who has everything – actually have such an idyllic life herself? Maybe they have more in common than it seems.

And what’s wrong with not-so-perfect, anyway?

A good solid example of "chick-lit"

It has its moments midway through where I felt the author may have gone a little too far with the plot line and it felt just a bit too unrealistic... However, overall it's a good solid example of "chick-lit"; it somehow draws you in, makes you cringe, glues you to your seat and leaves you with a smile and that feel good feeling!
A great easy going holiday read and a good reminder that life isn't always as it seems.

So funny and relatable

Fizzled Out.

I really enjoyed this at the beginning and found it amusing. As the story developed it sort of petered out and I lost interest somewhat. Shame.
