Isabelle Beckett moves from Melbourne to Sydney with her boyfriend - and he quickly abandons her to live in Adelaide. Despite hoping that they can sustain a long-distance relationship, Isabelle ends up mucking everything up with an alcohol-fueled one-night stand. Narrator Louise Crawford voices the newly single Isabelle with a delightful blend of sassiness, vulnerability, and quirkiness, and listeners will nod their heads in recognition as she describes the challenges of living and dating in a big city with humor and self-deprecation. Crawford weaves together the growing romantic tension between Isabelle and Dr. Jack with delicacy, and listeners will find it hard not to root for these endearing characters.

This was a light fluffy fun book and I enjoyed it a lot. This is the kind of book you pick up for a good laugh & a smile. The main character, Isabel isn't your typical chick lit socialite. She's an ordinary woman who tries to be sophisticated but somehow always ends up in the most hilariously awkward situations. Isabel's exaggerated imagination and colorful humor make the book a delight to listen to. The book is well worth the credit. I thoroughly recommend it for someone who's looking for a book that's a good laugh & loads of fun. This was money well spent.
