Series Sunday: Holly's Inbox Scandal in the City

Series Sunday is a new bookish meme hosted by yours truly, Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.

Holly's Inbox: Scandal in the CityMy Series Sunday pick is Holly's Inbox: Scandal in the City, the sequel in the Holly Denham series. Holly has just been promoted to manager of the reception area at DK Huerst, a large British corporate investment bank. In this follow-up, Holly shows her intelligence and ability to manage a team. The lobby area is constantly busy, so it is hard to chit chat with co-workers around the water cooler. E-mail is still the next best thing!

She's now living with boyfriend Toby. Although most of Toby's time is spent working or making mysterious trips to France. Just like the first book, Holly seems to have made another enemy. This time it is the Catering Manager, Tanya Mason. To top the drama off, Holly has a stalker sending anonymous e-mails. And despite office gossip, Holly manages to keep a secret of her own.

I enjoyed the sequel just as much as the first one. However, I don't think the subtitle is accurate. There really wasn't a big scandal in the city. If anything, the first book had more scandal. Me thinks the author just wanted a title to grab readers attention. Either way, it is still an entertaining read. Plus the e-mail format is very addicting. New York Post calls Holly the "e-Bridget Jones." 

Check out the trailer below. (P.S. I favour the UK cover shown in the trailer.)
