Review by NashNordin
I’m really excited for this book! I Heart London is the fifth books from Lindsey Kelk’s I Heart series (and I heard that it is the last one). Angela is terrified to be back to London. Well, her mother had insisted that she came back with her fiancé for her mother’s 60th birthday.Then, her mother suggested the craziest thing – that she should marry Alex during her birthday. What’s even crazier is that, Jenny, her best friend from New York thinks that it was a good idea. That it was romantic. They had 6 days to plan everything before the wedding took place and things couldn’t get much more hectic. Well, her best friends, Jenny and Louisa finally met each other, Louisa’s baby; Grace, her parents and that presentation she had to deliver to Spencer Media UK.I Heart London is definitely one of my favorite book from the series. I love Angela. She’s adorable. I love how Lindsey Kelk writes what’s going through her mind. It was really funny and crazy. It makes me laugh so much! I like how the series start off with a wedding and ended with another wedding. It sounds so perfect. The story is great. It was really fun, and light. I love it.
Review by Hanneri
Angela is a Brit living in New York, she has a musician fiancée who thinks the world of her and a best friend whose family own a large magazine company and are letting the two of them start up their own global magazine. The idea of this book is literally my dream life. Then comes the drama. Angela has to return to the UK to visit her parents and faces numerous distractions and problems along the way. Without giving too much away, more than half of the book is about the planning of a wedding - which is just a week away, and the relationships that come under strain because of this. I haven't read any of the I Heart series before, and I'm not really sure I would again. Sure, it's a relaxing, easy read that will pass the time if you're sunbathing on a Mediterranean beach somewhere, but in general I prefer a book with a little more to it. The book was fun and Kelk is a talented writer, but I feel the characters could have done with a little more definition. I will probably read another book by the Author in the future, so I can get more of an idea of what her style is and what she's about, but it won't be one of the I heart series, as I feel the idea is kind of... done in one book. I might be wrong here, but it's just my initial feeling. If you'd like an easy read to pass the time, I Heart London does the job.
