Katie Brenner has the perfect life: a flat in London, a glamorous job, and a super-cool Instagram feed.
so the real truth is that she rents a tiny room with no space for a
wardrobe, has a hideous commute to a lowly admin job, and the life she
shares on Instagram isn’t really hers.
But one day her dreams are bound to come true, aren’t they?
her not-so perfect life comes crashing down when her mega-successful
boss Demeter gives her the sack. All Katie’s hopes are shattered. She
has to move home to Somerset, where she helps her dad with his new
Then Demeter and her family book in for a
holiday, and Katie sees her chance. But should she get revenge on the
woman who ruined her dreams? Or try to get her job back? Does Demeter –
the woman with everything – have such an idyllic life herself? Maybe
they have more in common than it seems.
And what’s wrong with not-so-perfect, anyway? @goodreads
I read some Sophie Kinsella books back in the day and liked them so I
thought I would get this one and give it a try. I was worried because
the summary didn't sound like my cup of tea, but Lord, I'm glad I got it
all because of Sophie Kinsella. I freaking loved it!
lives in London and she works at a job where she is trying to get
noticed by her boss Demeter. Katie is hoping she will see her potential
and give her a real job. Poor ole Katie is working check to check and
living with some mates in a flat.
Katie also has a crush on her
other boss, Alex. She thinks something is going on with him and Demeter
though. She has this hate relationship with Demeter because she acts
like she's better than anyone else. She has the perfect life, the
husband, the kids, the job, the house, the everything. But, as we all
know things aren't always what they seem.
Katie ends up losing
her job and she moves out to the farm where her dad and stepmom live.
She gets all of these things set up for them to run a B&B and for
people to have a farm experience. She does a great job and they start
Then . . . Demeter and her family show up. Katie
is about to freak because she didn't tell her dad that she lost her job,
but ole Demeter doesn't recognize Katie because she has gone back to
her natural self.
Oh, what fun it was to read about Katie taking out all kinds of revenge on Demeter having her do some crazy stuff on the farm.
some other stuff happens and Katie is found out and some other stuff
happens and then Alex gets involved and then all hell breaks loose and
it's just so good y'all ! I laughed and cried my way through this book. I
just love it so much. Yay me! =)
