Take A Look At Me Now by Miranda Dickinson

Take A Look At Me NowTake A Look At Me Now by Miranda Dickinson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is well timed for this day and age. There are oh so many people loosing their jobs and two years ago my son was one of them.

Nell arrives at work one day only to be told the news that she is going to be made redundant. To anyone this is a horror story, to Nell, it means her 5 year plan has not got a dent in it!

Nell thinks for a fraction and decided to use her redundancy money to get away from it all. She heads for San Francisco. Her cousin Lizzie lives there so she won't be entirely on her own. She's found some accommodation and is quite content to plod and see what happens from one day to the next.

The author transported me to San Francisco where I have never been, but to read its pages it made me feel like I would love to go.

Nell is only there for a matter of 8 weeks in all but she has met some interesting people, many from all walks of life and has enhanced her life.

Miranda Dickinson is a breath of fresh air to read, here is a woman who doesn't have to live her life around a man. She's independent and knows just what her dream is and how to get it.

She wants to run a diner.

As always, the author Miranda Dickinson presents us with another lovely read.

Thanks to HarperCollins UK, Avon via Net Galley for the chance to read and review this book.

How far would you go to make a new start?

When Nell’s on-off boyfriend Aidan calls her into his office, losing her job is the last thing she expects.

Heartbroken and unemployed to boot, she makes a radical decision to blow her redundancy cheque and escape to the untested waters of San Francisco.

But is the glamour of the city too good to be true? And can Nell leave her past behind?
