Shelves: chick-lit
Jessica Adams writes in an engaging and endearing fashion ... I quite like her ditzy heroine, Alice. BUT why, why, why write a book with the title of Vintage Alice - about creating a vintage fashion label - when it barely rates a mention in the book? I don't understand it. Clearly that's what Jessica intended with the plot when she set out writing it ... so why then does Alice (and therefore Jessica) shoot herself in the foot EVERY time she has an opportunity to do something creative??

This is exactly how I felt moving from Alaska to Australia! It was perfect timing reading this book because I'm due for a visit back home and have mixed feelings. The idea of re-visiting old places that now harbor bad memories and making new good memories in those places is such a fabulous thought! "Wrong way round, long way round. It usually works in the end."

This is the first book that I have read by Jessica Adams. And I can say that I really enjoyed it!
It's about a couple who are about to emigrate but also break up before they go.
My favourite part of the book is when it was set in Austrailia, which is somewhere where I haven't been before but would love to go.
I loved the shocking twists and turns along the way, one of which was gripping reading and took the book in a totally different direction for a while. It's an excellently written book with

Alice agrees to go to Australia with Nash, but then things turn out a little different. This book inspired me to visit Australia and to take up sewing! A very easy to read book which sometimes is exactly what you want to help you chill out. I will defiantly be reading some of her other books.

Definitely not my jam.

3 and a half stars.
Highly enjoyable.
J.A. is wonderful but this one is not as legendary as her Single White E-mail and Cool for Cats.
Disappointing, but liked the Aussie references.

She is deep and funny. She makes you believe in her characters. She took me to Australia.

It was an ok read but if I'm honest I got bored with the characters and felt the cousins falling for each other a bit weird for me!
