Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella

Twenties Girl

Fun chick-lit! Lara (27) is at her great-aunt Sadie’s funeral (whom she’s never met), when a girl of her own age asks her to stop the funeral because her necklace has gone missing. No one else can see the girl and soon Lara discovers it’s the ghost of her great-grand mother, in a younger form. She wants Lara to help her find her necklace.

Lara’s life is in turmoil: her boyfriend Josh had recently finished with her (which she can’t accept, she believes he really still loves her) and her business partner has left for a tropical island. Lara, who is the least experienced, is left in charge of the business, with varying, though mostly negative, results.

Sadie’s ghost keeps bothering her so in the end, there is no other option than to go looking for the lost necklace. What she finds is a thief and crook, love, and a better job.

The book was entertaining, hilarious at times, partially a detective story (of the cozy kind), partially romance. A tyical Kinsella book. Rating: 4.5/5

    Nice review. I love Sophie Kinsella! I’ve seen this book around and was wondering if it was any good. I’ll have to pick it up the next time it crosses my path.

    It sounds like a fun book! I have not seen this one here in India right now… It sounds so good… I may have to order this online.

  4. I really like Sophie Kinsella’s stories — light and fun, something to take you away from all of the seriousness and just enjoy!

    Can’t wait to get it. Perfect for reading at the beach. Only I first need to plan a trip to the beach.

  6. Bookjourney says:

    Fun! This one goes on my wish list!

  7. Love Love Love this book, Sophie Kinsella is one of the few authors that write funny chick lit. I love that those characters don’t come with an emotional baggage, no divorces, no illness…it’s pure escapism and there aren’t enough books like hers out there (I can think of Meg Cabot and a few others)

I love comments! Let me know what you think.
