What do mascara wands and gardening shears have in common?
Absolutely nothing! At least that’s what wannabe beauty influencer Sophie Timney thinks when her friend Polly suggests involving her brother Marcus in Sophie’s make-up tutorials. She needs more views, Marcus needs promotion for his gardening business – in Polly’s mind joining forces will help them both. Sophie isn’t so sure.
Because Marcus Bowman has a habit of getting under her skin in a way that no exfoliating face scrub ever could.
But, as the views and comments on her videos begin creeping up, it becomes increasingly obvious that Sophie’s subscribers like Marcus, and what’s even worse is that Sophie might be starting to feel the same way …
A fun novel from this promising new talent in romantic comedy. Runner-up in the 2019 Search for a Star competition sponsored by Your Cat magazine.
Sparkle, Love & Fun!
I can easily understand why this did so well in a competition; it’s a bright, sparkly read with lots going for it from a fresh voice in fiction.
Sophie is desperate to make a name for herself as a social influencer, and works very hard at perfecting her make up tutorials which she puts up online. Despite that, she isn’t achieving the followers as quickly as she wants; so when her friend Polly comes up with a plan to raise her profile by including her brother’s business in her videos she is persuaded that it’s a good idea. Polly’s brother Marcus has a thing for Sophie, however, but has hidden it well. When Sophie begins to take more notice of Marcus, neither of them will admit the attraction and, of course, the path of true love never does run smoothly . . .
This is a great read! Lots going on, a great cast of characters and entertaining writing bringing it all together and keep the reader’s focus. With so much going on, there are plenty of ups and downs all threaded through with sparkle, love and fun. Highly enjoyable and recommended to all lovers of a fun read with warmth and romance at the heart of it. 4.5* stars!
