A Girl's Best Friend - by Lindsey Kelk

My own copy
Original Cover

The blurb:

A festive treat from the author of the bestselling I HEART series
First Tess was a girl with a plan.
Then she was a girl with a dream.
Now she’s a girl who’s come back to earth with a bump.
When the opportunity arises to join her best friend, Amy, in New York for Christmas, Tess jumps at the chance. The only fly in ointment is that Nick, the man who broke her heart, lives there. And Charlie, the man she turned down, has just started talking to her again. And she has just four days to take a photo for a competition that could save her career.
But aside from that, everything is going to be great: it’ll be the best Christmas ever. Won’t it?

My Opinion:

I was really excited when this book landed on my doorstep. I loved both About A Girl and What A Girl Wants, the first two books of this series and if you have read my reviews oft hem, you know why I am excited.

We are still with the lovely Tess and let me tell you one thing: She is just so much fun to follow around!!!
She gets the opportunity to join her best friend Amy in New York over Christmas. I loved getting a better insight into their friendship. Of course the rest oft he gang is there as well: Al, Kekipi etc. They are an amazing group of people and very entertaining ;)

Tess is determined to finally making it as a photographer, even if it proves to be really hard. She wants to enter a photo competition at a gallery and works hard for it.
New York also means to city of Angela, Alex and Jenny. Remember them from the iHeart series?! Of course you do, who wouldn’t! We get the pleasure of having both Jenny and Angela as part of this story, which is just awesome! Thanks Lindsey ;)

Now back to Tess and her men! So after all what happened with Charlie in the past two books, they are not talking to each other. Can they get back to their old friendship?! And then there is Nick and yes I’m still #TeamNick, I think I even started to like him more in this book. He ended things with Tess in Milan and now she hasn’t heard from him in a few months, the thing though: He lives in New York. I was actually just waiting fort hem to see each other again and they way that turned out was a bit surprising for me, but it definitely made the whole story even more entertaining and fun. Towards the end we find out what is behind it all and what actually happened in the months they didn’t talk, just awwwww!

This book is just absolutely FABULOUS!!!! I have to say I kind of liked About A Girl and What A Girl Wants a bit more, but this one is still awesome! Lindsey’s writing style is very unique and makes you feel like being part of a movie. She has a real talent to engage a reader and put together a gripping storyline. I don’t want to leave this story, I need more of Tess and Nick!!!
