About the book – from Goodreads: Alexandra Jones has a pretty peachy life. A gorgeous, stinking rich fiancé, her sleazy boss is retiring which means an imminent promotion in a job she loves, and she gets her best friends Jimmy Choos when she dies, although she would prefer her best friend to stick around as long as possible. Obviously.

But when a blast from the past turns up on her doorstep just as her world turns upside down, she decides to take her best friend, Rosie, up on her offer of a 10 day break in San Francisco. Whilst Rosie works on a fashion shoot and Alexandra becomes well acquainted with the photographer’s brother, it becomes clear that this trip is one that will change their lives forever.

About the author: Ellen lives in the wonderful county of Yorkshire, England where she spends most of her time baking, eating, baking, and eating. Occasionally she does leave the house to go to the cinema or do some food shopping though.

After spending years with an overactive imagination, she decided to put all the magic in her head to some good use and put finger to laptop where The Story of Us was born and became her debut novel.

She loves to travel, her favourite destinations so far have all been in America, hence the love of all things, and all people, American. The food rocks pretty hard too, she ate until her jeans begged her to stop whilst she was there. True fact.

Aside from day dreaming and eating, Ellen is a sucker for a lolcat, penguins and monkeys – she has never claimed to be normal.

  1. haven’t read it, haven’t added to GR as yet

  2. I haven’t read it but reviews say it is funny so probably I’ll read it soon 🙂 Comedies are the best!

  3. Sorry I haven’t but would love to read this great book. It’s nice to read a story that lets you have fun along with the characters!!

  4. Sounds like a book I’d like to read! Thanks for the chance to read it for free!

  5. Haven’t yet. I’m lately a bit weary of books which start off with a seemingly ‘perfect’ life. It usually works out this way: the perfect life wasn’t actually all that perfect (or the main characters wants more/is unhappy about something), something big happens, the main character meets new people and usually falls in love, some drama ensues and then everything goes back to a perfect situation yet again, just MORE perfect. While there’s nothing bad about this kind of books and I’ve read loads of them even finding myself pleasurably engrossed in most of them, I’m a bit getting tired of this, most of the time tend to just make me feel more miserable. Call it envy 😛
    This said I’ll include this one in my to read list; it sounds like a good book for the summer, even if I still hope it will surprise me with something new. 🙂

    • I know what you mean, it can get tiring to read the same story over and over again. But I do like these kinds of reads. Predictable can be comfortable. I still get engrossed. I still get attached. Leaves me happy at the end. I really enjoy them during the winter, once the winter blues set in, and during the summer, because light and happy are great for sunny days.

      Good luck in the giveaway and thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy the book if you get a chance to read it. 🙂
