When you land the right one, chick-lits can be so fun!
I've read almost all of Sophie Kinsells's books. I claim to hate her frivolous, wacky protagonists (cough *Becky* cough), but her writing is so good I've stopped caring about the lack of character development. But this book made me realise why it's so hard to stay away from Kinsella.
Lara and Sadie gave me belly aching laughs page after page. The unbelievably stupid things that Sadie makes Laura do, their to and fro wisecracks, the ungainly friendship between both the twenties girls and their love stories were a treat to read. Sadie's romance with the artist in her past touched me in a way I've never been affected by a Kinsella's book. Cracking the necklace mystery was painfully lengthy, but hilarious.
The character growth of Lara and that of her great aunt's ghost was amazingly well done. I hated saying goodbye to Sadie and getting back to the real world.
A great book to unwind yourself after an awful day and get into the awesomeness of 21st century London.
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 request: Lara must find a missing necklace that had been in Sadie’s possession for more than seventy-five years, because Sadie cannot rest without it.
Lara and Sadie make a hilarious sparring duo, and at first it seems as though they have nothing in common. But as the mission to find Sadie’s necklace leads to intrigue and a new romance for Lara, these very different “twenties” girls learn some surprising truths from and about each other. Written with all the irrepressible charm and humor that have made Sophie Kinsella’s books beloved by millions, Twenties Girl is also a deeply moving testament to the transcendent bonds of friendship and family.
