The summer bestseller from the immensely popular Lindsey Kelk

Tess Brookes has always been a Girl with a Plan. But when the Plan goes belly up, she’s forced to reconsider.

After accidently answering her flatmate Vanessa’s phone, she decides that since being Tess isn’t going so well, she might try being Vanessa. With nothing left to lose, she accepts Vanessa’s photography assignment to Hawaii – she used to be an amateur snapper, how hard can it be? Right?

But Tess is soon in big trouble. And the gorgeous journalist on the shoot with her, who is making it very clear he’d like to get into her pants, is an egotistical monster. Far from home and in someone else’s shoes, Tess must decide whether to fight on through, or ‘fess up and run…

About the author

Lindsey Kelk was a children’s book editor and is now a magazine columnist and author of I Heart New York, I Heart Hollywood, I Heart Paris, I Heart Vegas, I Heart London and The Single Girl’s To-Do List. When she isn’t writing or watching more TV than is healthy, Lindsey likes to wear shoes, shop for shoes and judge the shoes of others. She loves living in New York but misses Sherbet Fountains, London, and drinking Gin & Elderflower cocktails with her friends. Not necessarily in that order.

    I haven’t been so transfixed in a funky lighthearted novel for ages, just the distraction I needed from the reality of life. Amazing

    Can't wait for the next one! (I wish I would not have to wait a year for it.) Great book! Highly recommended!
  • Fantastic!!

    I've read each and every one of Lindsey's books from the I Heart series and I loved them all! And I can honestly say I loved About A Girl just as much, like the I Heart series you really get to love the characters in the stories and this was no different. I'm gutted to have to wait until summer 2014 for What A Girl Wants.... However I Heart Christmas towards this end of this year will keep me going!!
  • Unfinished edition

    By HBMusky
    I normally love Lindsey Kelk's books, and I do love the story of this one but I kept getting pulled out of the story by the very numerous ?'s in the text that seem to be there for her benefit to help hr decide whether to leave the text as is or to change it. It doesn't feel like this is the final edit, and so I'm quite disappointed to have paid for an unfinished edition.

  • Good, but.....

    I am literally only a quarter of the way through this book and I am enjoying it. However I have noticed several mistakes in the text of the book already, and I am wondering how many more I will come across! I am not the "spelling police" but it makes me feel a little like the book was rushed.
