Review: From Notting Hill With Love...Actually By: Ali McNamara

From Notting Hill with Love...ActuallyFrom Notting Hill with Love...Actually by Ali McNamara
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

How did I not pick up this book sooner?!! Ms. McNamara has an amazing voice that describes the inner workings of my crazy movie/book/happily ever after mind.
Scarlett O'Brien has found herself stuck, looking at her fiancee and wanting more, at her job with her father wanting so much to know about her mother (who ran off), and often daydreaming of the modern day leading man sweeping her into a life where she gets the Oscar. Through some discussion her father and best friend convince her to take some time to get her head straight, one month off house sitting in London, in Notting Hill.
How many moments can Scarlett create that come out of the films she loves - Notting Hill, Bridget Jones, Holiday, Pretty Woman (don't ask), and so many others - well, with interesting secondary characters that pop off the pages all of it is possible, especially with a good looking neighbor that can offer up the adventures of her dreams.
OMG!! This is one book I will re read over and over again. It embodies the Brit Chick Lit, the movies that I find Cinematherapy in, and a great writing style that keeps you wanting more. The storyline was great, although somewhat predictable, but sometimes that is what you need - the best part is the adventure that keeps you going until the ending that was perfect and made for a movie.
