What's New, Pussycat? by Alexandra Potter
What would you do if your boyfriend proposed?
Say yes, text everyone with the good news or take out a subscription to Brides magazine.
Delilah does none of the above
Instead she packs up her beloved Tom Jones record collection and heads to London in search of a new life and a new man. Only she meets two..Charlie, the sexy media mogul and Sam, best friend and confidante.
Everything seems perfect. Thrown into a whirlwind of glamorous parties, five-star restaurants and designer penthouses, Delilah couldn't be happier. After all it's a million miles away from her old life. And her old self.
Which is exactly what she wanted. Isn't it?
This is what I say :
What's New, Pussycat? is quite predictable. No prizes as to whom she ended up with. It's pretty much the standard recipe for such chic lite.
Even then, it was an enjoyable read which kept me company while I waited for the light to turn green. Yes, this is one of my 'traffic light' read.
While it is predictable and quite cliche in many ways, it was funny (especially best friend Vivienne) and if you do have time to spare and want's some laugh and cheering up, you can give this title a try.
In case you, like me, is a noob on Tom Jones and wondering about the book title, well, the title of the book is the title of a song by this singer, so there you have it...although how appropriate is it, I can't really tell.
