2015, Book review

The Doris Day Vintage Film Club by Fiona Harper

Book Description : The amazing new romantic comedy from the #1 bestselling author of The Little Shop of Hopes and Dreams!

’Sweet and romantic, a story guaranteed to have you smiling’ – Milly Johnson

The perfect pair for ‘pillow talk’?

Claire Bixby grew up watching Doris Day films at her grandmother’s house and yearned to live in a world like the one on the screen – sunny, colourful and where happy endings were guaranteed. But recently Claire’s opportunities for a little ‘pillow talk’ have been thin on the ground.

Until she meets new client Nic who comes into her travel agency looking to book the perfect get away. Too bad it’s for two!

But as Nic and Claire get closer, the sparks start to fly, and Claire’s questioning everything Doris taught her about romance.

Can true love ever really be just like it is in the movies?

Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps…

* Thank you to Netgalley and the publishers of this book for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review*

My thoughts: The first things to attract me to this book was the quirky book cover and Doris Day in the title. I’ve been a huge fan of Doris Day for as long as I can remember and was quite looking forward to reading this book.

It was a joy and an easy read. It made me laugh and was a book I could put down and pick up again and get straight back into.

The only downside for me was it was so very much like The Little Shop of Hopes and Dreams by Fiona Harper so was a tad predictable and also the ending seemed a bit abrupt but apart from that it was a nice dreamy read.
