White Lies by Emily Harper

The Blurb:

Imagine standing in line at Harvey Nichols waiting to buy the most gorgeous silk Gucci dress. The only minor problem? You can’t afford it, it's a size smaller than you are, and you have absolutely no place to wear it.
Meet Natalie Flemming: a twenty-something woman working in London for a fabulous shoe-designing firm, but the only thing they let her touch is the company’s tax forms. She has decided to give fate a vacation and takes the task of finding the man of her dreams (or Johnny Depp if he would just return her calls...) into her own hands.
She craves adventure, spontaneity, passion- or will just settle for a decent date

My Review:

White Lies is a great, easy to get engrossed in read. The story centres around Natalie. She works as an accountant in a shoe designing company. Natalie is single and looking for love. Before each chapter Natalie writes a letter to the man of her dreams telling us what she is looking for. 

 Enter Oliver, the love interest of the book. As in most chick lit the course of love never runs smoothly.....Oliver is a consultant sent in along with his partner Angelica to sort out the company who are floundering. You can see the spark between them right from the off. As the book progresses the flirting starts, but is there any future for them? Oliver is only around temporarily and his business partner Angelica seems to want more than just a business partnership. Will she get her happy ending? Read the book to find out :-)

I found this book really easy to get into. There is a good, strong storyline and well developed characters. I felt I could identify with some of Natalie's personality and traits which made me laugh quite a lot. The book is lighthearted and has some funny scenes but there is enough depth to the characters for you to boo and hiss at the mean ones, and cheer for the goodies. 

I would recommend this book for a holiday read, for when travelling, or even a cosy weekend on the sofa with some chocolate for company.

Thank you to the author Emily Harper who kindly sent me a copy of this book in return for an honest review.
