Publisher's Summary

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...

Enjoyable read but had a few issues

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Lucy was very hypocritical and I didn't like her indecisiveness.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I liked the two settings, Australia and England

Did Jane Collingwood do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

I feel like she did a good job at the females, but the male characters were a bit confusing.

Do you think Lucy in the Sky needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

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.

Any additional comments?

Full review is on my blog lebookchronicles.com

Pathetic

What would have made Lucy in the Sky better?

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.

Has Lucy in the Sky turned you off from other books in this genre?

No just this author

Would you be willing to try another one of Jane Collingwood’s performances?

Yes Jane Collingwood is excellent but the storyline was ridiculous.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No

Any additional comments?

A total waste of time.

Very Good Book but....

The only thing I didn’t like about it was how Lucy was so wishy-washy at the end when the best choice was so clearly obvious. Her boyfriend was a jerk and didn’t deserve her pity.

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.

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.

Fabulous

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 :)

I'm a fan of Paige Toon, so to listen to this book was an enjoyable first crack at audiobooks. Funny and reliable Lucy in the Sky is great!
