A Night in with Grace Kelly by Lucy Holliday
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Fate has got it in for Libby Lomax. She realised, far too late, that her best friend Olly, is the actual Love of Her Life. Now he’s in love with the so-nice-it-hurts, Tash, and it looks like her happy ending is completely out of reach.
Things start looking up when she, quite literally, runs into the completely gorgeous Joel. Libby discovers that there is more to Joel than his six-pack, not least, the incredible fact that he honestly believes he has found his fairy tale princess in her.
And if this wasn’t enough, an unwanted guest shows up on Libby’s enchanted sofa; Grace Kelly, wearing her iconic wedding dress and convinced that Libby is figment of her imagination. But one thing that Grace doesn’t believe in is fairy tales. Grace believes that if you really want something, then you’ve got to make it happen yourself; words which give Libby hope that happy endings aren’t just for fairy tale princesses…
This was the third and last in the series of 'Nights In With....' books from Lucy Holliday. As with the other two immensely entertaining with the main character Libby Lomax and her magical couch along with Bogdan and the other regulars to the series creating laugh out loud scenarios and impossible situations.
This was equally as good as the other two in the series and I am sorry that these will now have come to an end. Clever witty dialogue, likable and believable characters and a great girlie read.
Libby having realised too late that she is in love with her best friend Olly is now forced to see him with another girl and it seems her happy ever after will never come. She is almost resigned to a life of being single when Joel comes crashing into her life, almost literally, and he is completely bowled over by her believing she is the love of his life. To complicate matters even further Grace Kelly materialises on Libby's enchanted sofa much to Bogdan's delight who is so smitten with Grace Kelly that he even decides to grow a moustache to make himself more like Clark Gable whom Grace hints at she was besotted with.
We all know there are no such things as magical sofas but you need to read this with a little bit of imagination and an open mind, if you're looking for a serious read this book is not it. I loved the other two in the series and I loved this one as well, I only hope that Lucy Holliday can pull something out of the bag for her next book since this series has come to an end. She has created a hard act for herself to follow and I will definitely be looking for her next book. Well deserved 5 stars for this and the series - loved it all.
