Abstract: WHAT’S ONE LITTLE WHITE LIE?
Okay, so it isn’t that little. It’s kind of a whopper. It’s just that when Natalie Raglan ups and quits her job at a Bath advertising firm, breaks up with her loser-ish boyfriend, and moves – to London! Things don’t quite turn out the way she planned. Having made the brave move to the Big City, the lifelong country mouse finds that living chic is still a long way off. Even Cressida, the girl who used to rent her tiny flat, still gets more phone calls and mail there than Nat does. Come to think of it, Cressida Langdon’s life looks pretty appealing–especially when an invitation to the posh, exclusive Soho House club arrives, addressed to Cressida.
Before she really knows what she’s done, Nat has opened Cressida’s mail … and taken up her life. Soon Nat’s dating a gorgeous investment banker named Simon, giving “reiki healing sessions,” wearing wonderful clothes, and partying with the A-list at Soho House. But the best part really is Simon. He’s everything Nat has ever wanted. The problem is he thinks she’s someone else. And as her life and her lies begin to spiral out of control, Nat can’t help but wonder: Will she be exposed as a liar and a fake–or be saved from ruin by simply claiming good intentions…
Why I want it: Yesterday I learned that Gemma Townley is the sister of Sophie Kinsella. Before that I wasn’t aware of the fact that Sophie Kinsella actually had a sister who is a writer as well. I researched a bit and found out that Gemma Townley already wrote several novels of Chick Lit and going through the summaries of them, I really became curious. Little White Lies seems to be the perfect one for me to start because it is about a girl moving to London which I will do as well in a couple of days. Even though, the others sound interesting as well, this one was the one that grabbed my attention the most. Moreover, it has quite good reviews and some other readers say that if you like Sophie Kinsella you like Gemma Townley as well! So I’ll give it a try and let you know what I think about it afterwards!
