Sent this out to the decoy of the book and bookmark contest that I'd hosted. Figured you deserve a bonus package with some wishlist books for being a decoy twice in a row.

This was a cute, humorous fluff read, but I found it hard to like the heroine or to get invested in her story. She's in the midst of divorcing a rock star and fighting charges of assault and then just picks up and flees to London to reconnect with an old friend. There's lots of humorous escapades that are somewhat reminiscent of Bridget Jones's Diary or Confessions of a Shopaholic but without the emotional investment. Lily is just hard to feel sympathetic for - she's flighty, disorganized, trouble-attracting, indulgent - in short she's her own worst enemy. I did like Carter, the old friend that she rooms with while in London, and his roommate, Ian, a Scots with an almost unintelligible accent that spends most of the book playing video games. It was okay for a fluff read but I wonder if I would have liked it better if I'd read the first of the series ( I Do -- But I Don't )

Quotes I liked:

Fun is betting against the odds of fate that you'll come out all right in the end. That the thrill ride will be worth it.

In astrology, on your birthday all the stars align with the way they were on the day you were born. Some people feel this is a time to reflect, but my neighbor Fran used to always say that it's a subtle reminder that no matter how much progress you make, you always end up back where you started from.
