The Blurb:

Part 1 of Summer Flings – a fun, flirty and laugh out loud rom com series of short stories.

Armed with a degree from Oxford that she doesn’t have a clue what to do with, Ciara Bree convinces her two best friends, Elle and Gem to spend their first summer of freedom backpacking across the globe. Now it’s time to shop, sunbathe, think about boys for a change, and party hard…

First stop: LA!

The girls hit Tinseltown for a few days of shopping, star spotting, and even a movie premiere!

But their plan to sneak into an exclusive celeb party in West Hollywood backfires. Elle’s gorgeous older cousin, Zack, is called to the rescue and despite knowing she should stay away, Ciara just can’t seem to resist him.

The ideal summer treat for those relaxing days soaking up the sun!

My Review:

Trouble in Tinseltown is the first short story in a series by Aimee Duffy and I have a feeling it's going to be a lot of fun! I love stories which feature groups of friends, and Trouble in Tinseltown introduces us to three young women, Ciara, Elle and Gem who have just finished university and are for a summer of fun before whatever lies ahead.

I found this a really quick, easy and fun read. Infact it took no more than half an hour from end to finish so would be great for a commute or when you have a little bit of time to yourself.

The three girls are vivacious and out for fun. Ciara appears from this part to be the main character and I really enjoyed her. She isn't as well to do as the other two and I found this heart warming about her. She is a bit more level headed. However it doesn't stop her finding a cute guy to while away a night with......

I can't tell you much more without giving the whole storyline away....but I would recommend adding this to your reading list. Aimee's style of writing is good fun, and she develops the characters well so you feel like you know a bit of what makes each of them tick. Infact I am ready to jump on a plane and continue their travels with them. I wonder if they have room for a fourth best friend called Jill???

Roll on part two.......
