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!
