The Vintage Guide to Love and Romance by Kirsty Greenwood

Dear Reader,

The Vintage Guide to Love and Romance by Kirsty GreenwoodBOOK DESCRIPTION:

Jessica Beam is a girl who knows how to party. Only lately she's been forgetting to turn up for work on time. Or in clean clothes. Down on her luck, out of a job and homeless, Jess seeks the help of her long-lost grandmother.

Things aren't going well for Matilda Beam, either. Her 1950s Good Woman guide books are out of print, her mortgage repayments are staggering and her granddaughter wears neon Wonderbras!

When a lifeline from a London publisher arrives, the pair have an opportunity to secure the roof over their heads – by invigorating the Good Woman guides and transforming modern, rebellious Jess into a demure vintage lady.

The true test of their make-over will be to capture the heart of notorious London playboy Leo Frost and prove that Matilda’s guides still work. It's going to take commitment, nerves of steel and one seriously pointy bra to pull this off.

MY REVIEW:


I am bursting with excitement about this book! I cannot begin to tell you all how much I LOVED it. It had everything that you want in a chick-lit book but what I must mention first is the cover which is just stunning and just screams 'read me'


So The Vintage Guide to Love and Romance is about Jessica Beam and boy does she know how to have a good time - she is the life and soul of any party. Although she is not so good with responsibility and turning up for work on time. She suddenly finds herself down on her luck with no home or job, so Jess seeks out her long-lost Grandmother Matilda and it turns out that things are not going so well for Matilda either. She is in a lot of debt and her renowned 1950's Good Womanbooks are out of print, and are not likely to be reissued. So this is where Jess comes in handy when they are thrown a lifeline. They have to prove that the Good Woman guides can still work in today's modern society and who better to play the 1950's Good Woman role than Matilda's outspoken granddaughter. Jess has to capture the heart of playboy Leo Frost but not as herself of course, but as a 1950's Good Woman.

Jessica Beam is one of my favourite fictional characters that I have met. There has to be a sequel - we have to meet her again! This was such a quirky, feel good, romantic story with plenty of laughs on every page. A great cast of characters that will not be forgotten.

This is a must read!


Enjoy!


Kind regards,
Ailish
