Meet Clara Andrews… Your new best friend!
With a love of cocktails and wine, a fantastic job in the fashion industry and the world’s greatest best friends, Clara Andrews thought she had it all.
That is until a chance meeting introduces her to Oliver, a devastatingly handsome American designer. Trying to keep the focus on her work, Clara finds her heart stolen by lavish restaurants and luxury hotels.
As things get flirty, Clara reminds herself that inter-office relationships are against the rules, so when a sudden recollection of a work’s night out leads her to a gorgeous barman, she decides to see where it goes.
Clara soon finds out that dating two men isn’t as easy as it seems…
Will she be able to play the field without getting played herself?
Join Clara, as she finds herself landing in and out of trouble, re-affirming friendships, discovering truths and uncovering secrets.
My thoughts on the book: Meet Clara Andrews is the first installment in the Clara Series by author Lacey London. I must admit that I had a fun time delving into this easy, light read, which is reminiscent of Bridget Jones and other chick lit novels. Clara has a likeable personality and she’s surrounded by good friends, which makes for an efficient cast.
Granted it contains your average amount of clichés (like the wealthy suitor) — and I also thought that Clara spent a crazy amount of time eating and drinking throughout the plot — but in the end, you get what you hope for, a heartwarming love story. Pretty much a guilty pleasure. Even though it’s not groundbreaking in the romance genre, it’s lovely and entertaining.
I think I’ll read the second book to see whether it gains in depth!
My score: ♥ ♥ ♥ (= I liked it a lot)
