Publisher's Summary

The streets of London are paved with gold...allegedly. They may be twin sisters, but Lizzie and Penny Berry are complete opposites. Penny is blonde, thin and outrageous; Lizzie quiet, thoughtful and definitely not thin. The one trait they do share is a desire to do something with their lives, and as far as they are concerned, the place to get noticed is London. Out of the blue they discover they have a grandmother living in Chelsea and when she has to go into hospital, they find themselves flat-sitting on the King's Road. But, as they discover, it's not as easy to become It Girls as they'd imagined, and west end boys aren't at all like Hugh Grant.

Another feel good classic from Colgan

Does all the things you expect a Colgan novel to do. I laughed, cried fell in love with the characters and desperately wanted them to do well, which they inevitably did. Warm glow central by the end.

It was just too short, a real quick read which I would therefore recommend READING rather than listening too.

Loved it.
