Now when I first read the blurb for this book I knew it was going to be a cheesy, contemporary story. Honestly, it was and it didn't disappoint. The cover of the book is also very eye-catching and one of the things that drew me to the book after a little research.
The story revolves around Emily, who is a forty-year-old woman who decides is not too late to follow her dreams. Therefore she completely changes her life and tries to pursue an acting career. She's a great character and has some really good personality points which make you instantly like her.
There's also a great cast of characters who are entertaining and will have you laughing along as you read the book. I really got on with the humour in this story.
Lambert's writing style is a breeze to read and really sucks you into the story. I really liked that the heroine wasn't a young whippersnapper of nineteen or twenty. There's a theme of hope and encouragement throughout this novel and it really makes one want to strive for their dreams.
Overall, this was a fun and well-written story and that I would highly recommend.
