My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella - Five Stars

This story turns out to be one of those that takes you through two peoples lives and though their lives seem to be polar opposites, each for their own reasons quietly being very jealous for what the other has, and by the end of the book they find out they have much more in common then they thought and they will hang on to their own lives thank you very much. The story woven by Sophie Kinsella is one of her better ones I really liked it. I'm not going to go into the story line the description will do that for you, the story has surprises, the characters are well developed, and the book moves along quickly after a couple of chapters then you can just lie around and read the rest of the book in a day getting nothing else done. Anyone else do that? I was given the e-book by in exchange for an honest review!

Description as found on Good Reads: Katie Brenner has the perfect life: a flat in London, a glamorous job, and a super-cool Instagram feed.

Ok, so the real truth is that she rents a tiny room with no space for a wardrobe, has a hideous commute to a lowly admin job, and the life she shares on Instagram isn’t really hers.

But one day her dreams are bound to come true, aren’t they?

Until her not-so perfect life comes crashing down when her mega-successful boss Demeter gives her the sack. All Katie’s hopes are shattered. She has to move home to Somerset, where she helps her dad with his new glamping business.

Then Demeter and her family book in for a holiday, and Katie sees her chance. But should she get revenge on the woman who ruined her dreams? Or try to get her job back? Does Demeter – the woman with everything – have such an idyllic life herself? Maybe they have more in common than it seems.

And what’s wrong with not-so-perfect, anyway?
