Publisher Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Part love story, part workplace drama, this sharply observed novel is a witty critique of the false judgments we make in a social-media-obsessed world, from the author of The Party Crasher and Love Your Life.

“Sophie Kinsella keeps her finger on the cultural pulse, while leaving me giddy with laughter.”—Jojo Moyes, author of The Giver of Stars and The Last Letter from Your Lover

Everywhere Katie Brenner looks, someone else is living the life she longs for, particularly her boss, Demeter Farlowe. Demeter is brilliant and creative, lives with her perfect family in a posh townhouse, and wears the coolest clothes. Katie’s life, meanwhile, is a daily struggle—from her dismal rental to her oddball flatmates to the tense office politics she’s trying to negotiate. No wonder Katie takes refuge in not-quite-true Instagram posts, especially as she's desperate to make her dad proud.

Then, just as she’s finding her feet—not to mention a possible new romance—the worst happens. Demeter fires Katie. Shattered but determined to stay positive, Katie retreats to her family’s farm in Somerset to help them set up a vacation business. London has never seemed so far away—until Demeter unexpectedly turns up as a guest. Secrets are spilled and relationships rejiggered, and as the stakes for Katie’s future get higher, she must question her own assumptions about what makes for a truly meaningful life.

Sophie Kinsella is celebrated for her vibrant, relatable characters and her great storytelling gifts. Now she returns with all of the wit, warmth, and wisdom that are the hallmarks of her bestsellers to spin this fresh, modern story about presenting the perfect life when the reality is far from the truth.

Sophie Kinsella Does it Again!!!

I have never written a review for anything, but I simply had to as soon as I finished the last page of this book.. I absolutely loved this book! Seriously couldn't put it down..The characters were so real, so very loveable...I felt so many emotions while reading this beautiful story... At times I had tears, hope, incredible suspense, nostalgia, oh and I even laughed aloud on several occasions.. She has such a wit about her and it always comes through in her writing.. I've read every single book by this Brilliant author and this is definitely at the top of the list.. Well Done! A++++!!!! PS--->If u liked her
" Undomestic Goddess," you will absolutely fall in LOVE with " My Not So Perfect Life...."

LOVED this book!

Kinsella's new book has found a voice for a strong ad intelligent heroine. I loved seeing her grow. Also, at the end of the book, I find myself missing the characters....
