My not so perfect life - Sophie Kinsella

"My not so perfect life" by Sophie Kinsella is a fun, fun, fun read. The heroine's voice pulls you right in, from the first sentence. Katie/Cat Brenner has a dream: to live and work in London. Katie's widowed father also has a dream: for Katie to stay on their farm in Somerset.

This is not an "issues" book, but if you go looking, there is substance. You get the father-daughter motif, but also the female boss mentor or tormentor question. You get the "what's real" of social media, and the eternal romance question: do you go for the dependable and boring, or for the exhilarating and heart-breaking?

Because, most of all, this is a love story.
