Delilah does none of the above. Instead she packs her bags and heads to London in search of a new life, and a new man.
Only she meets two. Charlie, the sexy media mogul and Sam, best friend and confidante. Everything seems perfect. Thrown into a whirlwind of glamorous parties, five-star restaurants and designer penthouses, Delilah couldn’t be happier. After all, it’s a million miles away from her old life. And her old self. Which is exactly what she wanted.

Isn’t it?
Alexandra Potter’s hilarious first novel is an enchanting and irresistible story about finding yourself, following your dreams, and how it’s not unusual to fall in love. With anyone….
Delilah has made a big decision. In fact she’s made several. She’s leaving Bradford, leaving her boyfriend Lenny and taking her Tom Jones record collection, her pet whippet. Fatso and herself to the bright lights of the big city… And now that she’s here, it seems that down-to-earth Delilah is just what the big city was waiting for Hut whatever she does.
Delilah is determined finally to make the right choices for her future, in love and work. So whether Charlie, the wealthy media boy. or sweet Sam in his cafe are right for her is something she needs to decide – on her own. And then she can really start to live…
The overall, this book is a light, charming story about a young woman’s coming-of-age, told in a style that is just bubbling with fun and pizazz. Delilah Holdsworth experiences the moment of truth when her boyfriend Lennie proposes. Since when has Lennie ceased to be a boyfriend and becomes a habit?
But never fear, our gal packs up her Tom Jones records and throws her few possessions into the back of her car. London, watch out – here comes Delilah! Delilah soon realizes that life in a big town isn’t as fun as they made it out to be on TV. Sure, she catches the eye of rich, fabulously fun, and also very oily Charlie who shows her life on the high and trendy side.
But there’s also Sam, the fun but more down-to-earth guy who tends the local eatery. And soon Delilah would have to make a choice – what really matters to her in her life? There are moments when Delilah comes off as immature or selfish, but that only adds to her charm. She’s human.
This woman is wicked and witty, and while I haven’t lived in London long enough (at all, really) to verify the authenticity of her “observations” of life in London, I have a great laugh out of them. Here is a middle-class girl thrust into Charlie’s Notting Hill environment. Coping and adapting can be a chore – and great comedy. I have a great laugh out of the whole book.
This is the book you need when I’m in the mood for some fun and laughter. It’s also very light in terms of substance – it is very easy to forget about it after I’m done reading. Sam and Charlie have little personalities, especially. But no matter. Meeting Delilah Holdsworth is reward enough. Bubbly, fizzy, and absolutely fabulous, this woman just shines.
