Twenties Girl

Title: Twenties Girl

Author: Sophie Kinsella

Type: Chick Lit

Pages: 435

Published: 2009

Synopsis: Lara Lington is a twenty-something woman who has recently broken up with her boyfriend and isn't particularly loving her job as a corporate head hunter. To make matters worse, the spirit of her 105 year old Great-Aunt Sadie suddenly appears to Lara and has one last request ... to find her missing necklace that she cannot rest without. Since Lara is the only person who can see or hear Sadie (and the fact that Sadie will haunt Lara until she agrees), Lara decides to help her Aunt.

Sadie turns out to be a sassy and demanding spirit and the quest to find her necklace leads Lara to intrigue and a new romance as well as both 'twenties girls' finding out some surprising truths about each other along the way.

My Thoughts: I wasn't sure about this book at first. Like I've said before, Kinsella is hit and miss with me. This book started off slow but did evenutally take off. The relationship between Sadie and Lara is quirky and the mystery of the necklace was intriguing. Typical "Chick Lit" banter (I enjoyed the banter between Lara and Ed in particular), a few laughs and romance thrown in as well.
My Rating: 3.5/5 (a good read)
