My Series Sunday pick is I Heart New York, the first book in the I Heart series by Lindsey Kelk. The book opens with Angela catching her boyfriend with his pants down in the backseat of their truck with another woman. And at her best friend's wedding! Angela is crushed, angry, heartbroken, and embarrassed. She needs to get away. With nothing more than her bridesmaid dress, Louboutins, and passport, she hops on a plane and heads for New York. Not only does she flee from her London home, but flees to another country where she knows no one.
Angela settles into the first hotel seen, where she quickly bonds with the fabulous concierge, Jenny Lopez. (You may remember Jenny from the short story I reviewed.) Jenny wastes no time acquainting Angela with New York. A makeover, retail therapy, and tour of the city helps Angela get over the breakup. Eventually, she lands a gig with posting her online diary entries in a blog with a magazine. The blog focuses on her love for New York, past relationship, and the two sexy guys she is now dating.
I fell in love with New York again after reading this book. The mention of sites and shops had me excited for Londoner Angela. I held my breath while Angela was deciding whether to take up permanent residence in New York or return home to London. Her new BFF, Jenny, is an outgoing, character you'll just love. I'm looking forward to the next two books in the series. Hopefully I'll have read those before the fourth book, I Heart Vegas, releases on December 8, 2011.
For more information about the I Heart series and to read Angela's blog, please visit the official website.
