I read this immediately after finishing the chicago stars series ( which I loved) and was a little disappointed.


The story line involving the first lady was unusual and the interaction between Neally, Lucy and button was nicely written.

Think roman holiday set in an American camper van with a difficult teenager, a vomiting baby and a surly romantic lead, hiding the fact that he is a journalist.

I think my problem was that I did not really believe in the romance between Neally and Jorik. They only spent a week together and then months apart, before he realised that he was in 'love'.

Also Neally started off as such a weak, naive and downtrodden character, it was hard to believe that she would ever end up as president.

Pleasant but not a stand out read.

Probably one for the charity box.
