Settling down for a 24-hour flight to Australia, Lucy finds a text message on her phone - not from her boyfriend James, as she fondly hopes, but from a woman claiming to have slept with him four times in the past month. Trapped on the plane, she questions everything about her relationship with James. She finally calls him and he reassures her: it was only his mates playing a silly joke.
James is a lawyer, persuasive and gorgeous and Lucy adores him. So why, at the wedding in Sydney of her best friend Molly, does she have niggling doubts, and find herself attracted to Molly's brother-in-law Nathan? The sooner she gets back to her regular life in London, the flat she shares with James, her job in PR, the better. Nathan is a happy-go-lucky surfer boy, with no prospects, no place to live, an almost-girlfriend in tow. And the other side of the world...
Lucy - a girl caught between two distant continents - and two very different men...

Lucy was very hypocritical and I didn't like her indecisiveness.
I liked the two settings, Australia and England
I feel like she did a good job at the females, but the male characters were a bit confusing.
I think a longer epilogue or a short story would do fine. If it got a whole new book I think it would be too boring.
Full review is on my blog lebookchronicles.com
There was no story just a load of garbage about someone who meets a guy in Sydney then spends the entire book talking about him even tho she is engaged to someone else in England. I had trouble listening and just kept skipping until the end.
No just this author
Yes Jane Collingwood is excellent but the storyline was ridiculous.
A total waste of time.
"Brilliant Narrator - Good Story"
This was my first Paige Toon novel. I enjoyed the story enough to want to try another of her books. Perhaps I'm the only one who always wonder's when the book ends, what happens to the character for whom things ended badly? Jane Collingwood was a brilliant narrator, very good at a variety of characters voices, and a pleasant voice.
really do love this narrator and yet another brilliant story from Paige Toon. I fell in love with Nathan, wanted to shake Lucy a few times and tell her to fix up but overall I loved it.
"Paige Toon at her best"
one of my absolute favourites by Paige Toon, only really rivalled by Chasing Daisy! A must read for any self respecting lover of chic-lit :)
"Brings back old memories"
Listening to this helps bring back so many memory's of Australia as well being totally relatable.
"Lovely light entertainment"
My only criticism is that there aren't more Paige Toon titles available on audible - she's written plenty and I'm sure they'd be popular on audio.
Predictable carbohydrate chick lit fodder this may be but if you're after a well-drawn sympathetic protagonist who isn't a tedious ditsy bore and a wider simple, satisfying yet absorbing story you should be well pleased with both this and Pictures of Lily.
