Lured to Los Angeles by the possibility of acting in a television series, Tessa leaves Georgetown, her parents, and boyfriend Joe. She does such a great job acting as if she was a real dog walker during the audition two men stopped her to ask for her business card. When the acting job falls through, she turns to dog walking to support herself. The rest of the book involves dogs with personalities, issues, and some comical situations. The book is a lighthearted animal lover’s frolic with a little romance. This is the second book in the LA Lights Book Series.

I received this book through a random giveaway. Although encouraged as a courtesy to provide feedback, I was under no obligation to write a review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

I received a copy of Meeting Miss Mollie by Di Jones in exchange for an honest review.

Annabelle has a job she loves and she is very ambitious, she thinks her life is perfect in every way – great marriage, husband, home and job. Then she finds out her husband is being unfaithful to her and then everything starts to fall apart.

This was a really good book. I liked Annabelle’s “tell it like it is” personality. She is very honest without being mean in spite of everything she is dealing with and she is ultimately a strong person. She decides to move on after her marriage falls apart and decides to be a flatmate with a gentleman who is looking for companionship for Mollie since he travels quite a bit.

I love the way the story was told, going back and forth to Annabelle, Mollie, Christian (the flatmate) and others – but truth be told, my favorite was Mollie. She’s chock full of wisdom and is more perceptive than the other characters in the book and so funny too.

I would totally recommend.

What's a girl to do when she loses her boyfriend, best friend and job?

For Holly Oakwood, finding her boyfriend in bed with her best friend and losing her job has turned her life upside down. So she picks up the pieces of her shattered heart and leaves London for Los Angeles to start her life anew. Holly lands a great job at a Consulate, but living across the pond doesn't go as easy as she thought it would. With a bitchy boss named Brittany, homesick, struggling with loneliness and trying to fit in, Holly gets herself into some crazy situations while trying to change her life. Wondering if she made a mistake in moving to LA, it takes making some new friends and having some suitors romantically interested in her to see that becoming a US transplant was the right decision after all!

Transplanting Holly Oakwood is a delightfully sassy chick lit story that was a lot of fun to read. Written in the third person narrative that alternates between multiple points of view, author Di Jones weaves an entertaining tale that follows the crazy adventures of Holly Oakwood as she transplants her life from Britain to the US.

I really enjoyed that Holly is a normal woman with flaws. Holly's quirkiness, ability to get herself into some crazy mishaps, make mistakes and overcome them endeared me to her character. You can't help but feel for Holly, but there were times when I couldn't help but snicker at her quirkiness, and I loved that she always stayed true to herself.

I enjoyed the witty dialogue, comical interactions, and points of view from the other characters, they made for some good laugh-out-loud moments, especially Brittany, the bitchy boss from hell. I also enjoyed the three romantic suitors who were interested in Holly, I was intrigued and kept trying to guess who would ultimately win her heart. Finally, I would be remiss if I didn't mention the cheeky British narration, it was different from what I am used to, but I must say that I was entertained and loved the new British phrases and slang that I learned.

Transplanting Holly Oakwood is a fast paced and entertaining romantic comedy that chick lit fans will surely enjoy!
