Publisher's Summary

There are success stories - and there are true stories. 

How would you feel if everything in your life suddenly started to go...right? Six months ago, Alex Moore was stuck in a dead-end job, feeling her potential quietly slip away. Then, seemingly overnight, she launched her dream start-up and became one of London's fastest rising tech stars. At 31 her life has just begun. But Alex's transformation isn't easy for those around her. Her friends are struggling to accept her rapid success, her parents worry she's burning out and her fiancé is getting cold feet. 

Then weird things start to happen. Muggings, stalkers - even a wild claim that she murdered a stranger. But when Alex visits the Orkney Islands to recharge, weird turns into WTF. Because there she discovers the world's oldest secret - and it's a secret that Alex's stratospheric rise has royally messed up. 

Full of heart and humour, The Charmed Life of Alex Moore by Molly Flatt is a very modern adventure with a most unexpected twist.

Fun and surprising, great reading

The narrator was superb. The story was engaging and fun to listen to. I rooted for Alex. Could see this as a movie (and would like to watch it).

Beautifully Written and Highly Recommended!

This novel’s protagonist, Alex, begins by facing the challenges and complexities of being a startup founder, of which Molly is clearly an expert as there are numerous enjoyable nods to the current London scene, and as a startup founder myself, there were so many moments that resonated with me here, particularly with Alex’s revelations about her motivations, and the contrasts and balancing act between her public and private selves. Even when things get, let’s say ‘distracting’, we experience her mental burden of responsibility, both to all those around her and to herself. She must navigate all the expectation surrounding her, and as unique as her particular journey is, it feels wholly relevant and applicable to everyone wanting to examine their self-understanding. Overall, it is difficult to describe without spoiling the ‘twist’, so I will rather vaguely state that this struck me as a fascinating exploration of our foundations and what drives our ambition in life. Highly recommended!

Finally, I would be remiss not to mention the wonderful read by Sophie Bleasdale. A beautifully emotive and engrossing performance.

A charming first Story by first time author.

Can be charming at times,but has re-read most chapters to make sense of the story, but has very light ending. It is her first her book so I not put off her any books she may put out in the near future. The story has a strong sense of originality then most chick lit out thare, be no surprise "The charmed life of Alxe Moor" turn into a online tv series. I could also see that Molly Fleet could do book series of advents of life of the unusual Islanders life and how Alex life decided to go when she starts her life with Fin; but end of note I don't mind that it a one show story.
