Angela Clark is in love - with the most fabulous city in the world!
When Angela catches her boyfriend with another woman at her best friend's wedding, she's heartbroken and desperate to run away. With little more than a crumpled bridesmaid dress, a pair of Louboutins, and her passport in hand, Angela decides to jump on a plane for... NYC!
Settling into a cute hotel and quickly bonding with benevolent concierge Jenny - a chatterbox Oprah wannabe with room for a new best friend, Angela heads out for a New York makeover, some serious retail therapy, and a whirlwind tour of the city. Before she knows it, she's dating two sexy guys and blogging about her Big Apple escapades for a real fashion magazine. But while it's one thing telling readers about your romantic dilemmas, it's another working them out for yourself. Angela has fallen head over heels for the city that never sleeps, but does she heart New York more than home?

I just loved Lindsey kelk in her other books, but about a girl and this one... Ugh. I didn't like Angela. It was really ridiculous that she thought to date two guys after being cheated on and (spoiler) the only decent and realistic part was when she was called out my Jenny near the end. I heard the other I heart series were better, and I really wanted love this first one so I would have bunch of options to read later on, but I don't think I can. It's just to contrived, too many eye rolls and an unlikable character.
Difficult to describe the intonation with which the narrator ended virtually every sentence, but after the first chapter or two, it drove me up a wall. It's sort of a nasally gravel that ends with a drop in register with a simper, and there is no variation in inflection. The listener could never guess, by listening to cadence only, what emotion the character is expressing. Her voice sounds bored, and somewhat snobbish. Maybe it's meant to convey a social class in the UK - but this Yank is not impressed.
The story itself is ridiculous, but frivolous enough to listen to while focused on other tasks - or dozing on the beach. A better narrator would have taken it to the next level.
