The format of the book, being entirely told through emails, made the 525 pages fly by! I wouldn't have thought that a book w...more
It was also heart-breaking and heart-warming. Good stuff. Highly recommend to fans of chick-lit or humor. :)
Holly Denham is now living with her love, Toby, and working as a receptionist at DKHuerst. She spends her days emailing her best friends, Jason and Aisha, as well as co-worker Trisha. William from another department is always flirting via email with Holly, but she always stops him cold, she's in love with Toby.
Holly's family emails her all the time as well, and they are an eccentric bunch! Jason is wanting to break it off with his live...more
Holly Denham schafft es auch im zweiten Band, die Leser in ihren Bann zu ziehen.
Die Charaktere sind so ziemlich die gleichen geblieben, wie auch im ersten Band. Hinzu kommen noch zwei weitere Kolleginnen, die von nun an an der Rezeption arbeiten. Maria und Claire werden jedoch gut ins Team integriert, sodass man sich dort auf ein paar spaßige Emails freuen kann.
Jedoch muss sich Holly auch in diesem Band mit einer Konkurrentin herumschlagen: Tanya, die Managerin der Cat...more

I enjoyed it as much as the first book, but felt it was even more contrived than the first. It suffered from Bridget Jones 2 syndrome: what do you do when your heroine achieves her happy ever after at the end of the first book? Here the author decides (as...more

Holly's as ditzy and lovable as ever. And her friends aren't holding her back.
As things spiral out of control and it seems like Holly is just one cockt...more
2. Location or characters you met:
* Holly: What is not to like about Holly? She's got it together, well mostly, except for the bad habit of putting her bills in the freezer and pretending they don't exist. But look past that to her big heart and how loyal she is to her friends. I love this character. She's someone I could easily call a friend.
* Jason : He's the best best-friend a girl could ask for. I like his personality...more

Although I did not read the first Holly's Inbox, I immediately felt that I knew the distinct personalities of Holly and her pals, living the fun, young London life. Holly and Trish work in Reception at a major bank...more
This story helped me keep the drama alive that I crave since I stopped watching my Guiding Light (no longer air) and As The World Turns. ( My two favorite soaps, they are very addicting and hard to get away from). So now I crave drama like crazy, I will watch the Kardashians to get some...more

Dear Holly, isn’t it shocking…?

Would've been 5 stars but a surprise that came out of left field knocked it down for me.
I loved this book just as much if not more than the first one. With the huge exception of one thing (okay, maybe two, since one seems to effectively end the need for another installment in this series).
Though it had been a long time since I’d read the first on and at times I found myself saying, “Who the hell is this?” or wondering what the heck happened before, it didn’t take me super long...more
Actually, e-mail, instant messengers are the down-to-earth tools which very touch us in work place for communication even the person you're chatting with who is just sitting next to you one inch close. In office, the conversation is nothing but via optical fibre.
Overall, the plot is just so-so, but the format is quite fres...more
