Alix has two months to write a book and prove to everyone she has what it takes to be a writer. Scotland Yard Inspector Alex accusing her of breaking and entering is not helping things.

You either like Katie MacAlister's books or you don't. I do. I like her humor, her heroines, and the incredible supporting characters she comes up with. Her books are fun, light reads. ( )

Improper English

I Picked Up This Book Because: Random selection from my never ending TBR list, meant to read at night instead of the uber creepy book I was also reading.

The Characters:

Alexandria “Alix” Freemar: American in London to get a jump start on restarting her life as an author
Alexander “Alex” Black: Detective Inspector “so many nicknames” of the Scotland Yard. He has the patience of a saint and I need to find a man just like him.
Isabella, Karl, Daniel, Ray, Bert and other assorted neighbors and friends

The Story:

Alix is a study in living with all your emotions up front and ready to view. It’s rather endearing to me and Alex obviously finds this attractive. It never ceased to amuse me when their friends recognized the way Alix could pull out Alex’s emotions thus proving to be great partner for him. This book overall was fun with a small side of heartbreak. Katie has a way of writing stories that I look back on with joy.

The Random Thoughts:

Alex is insecure but determined to get what she wants - a published book. Alex is afraid of commitment but wildly attracted to her neighbor (also named Alex) who is interested in a serious relationship. There were some funny moments when Alexandra manages to get uptight Alexander to do something out of character - but I lost patience with Alex's hangups when she seemed to self sabotage over and over. Entertaining but nothing special. ( )

I loved this book. Katie MacAlister never disappoints me - realistic characters, smart funny lines, and good times.
To give you a taste, here's a quote:

after consulting the paracetamol package and deciding I didn't really need my kidneys as much as I needed to be able to blink without flinching, [I:] downed a couple more of the painkillers. That was followed by a half-hour's worth of yoga, most of which was spent in the Flattened Roadkill position---that's lying prone on the floor while breathing very, very carefully (moan as you inhale, groan as you exhale).

Fun, quick, laughable, a bit ridiculous, perhaps a nice beach read.
I was held hostage by this unreliable, sarcastic, insecure, slightly crazy heroine. She dreams of being a writer but writes the most ridiculous story. It's so awful. She reads passages of it to everyone, everyone she meets on the street ! She is in England on her mothers dollar to realize her dream and prove to her mother she is 'something' (yes, she's that insecure) She moves into a apartment building filled with quirky, wonderful people who become important to her growth. One tenant becomes her focus for a romantic adventure. He is her opposite, secure, focused and conservative. They battle through the relationship, at times it becomes ridiculous with some of her comments and actions.
I found this book had some very funny moments, some completely ridiculous actions, rude behavior, unbelievable romance, and yet had some great side characters. I hated how they all bent down to her rude, ridiculous behavior. I just didn't like her, couldn't cheer her on, and wished they would all just let her go. She was rude to her mother, her friends, to anyone. ( )
