Angela is 26 and maid of honor at her best friend's wedding, when, dressed in a horrible coffee-coloured fish-tail bridesmaid dress, and clutching a pair of Louboutins in her hand, she finds her fiance having sex with another girl in the back of their car.

After screaming at him she discovers that he has been seeing this girl for months, and that her best friend and her new husband have been playing doubles tennis with them!

Storming back into the wedding she screams at the bride, and fractures the grooms comforting hand with said beautiful shoes, before heading up to her room to cry into her pillow all night.

The next morning she decides that she's had enough. She doesn't want to think about moving out of their house, she doesn't want to divide the cd collection, she's wants a break, so grabbing her passport and laptop she catches the first available flight to an english-speaking country, and arrives in... you guessed it - New York.

Checking herself into a hotel she realises what a horrible mistake she's made - this isn't being strong, this is running away, and she resolves to catch the first flight back home. Then Jenny arrives at her door - the hotel concierge, who having heard Angels's story has bought her some comfort food in the shape of chocolate cookies, hot chocolate and sugary cereal.

The next day Jenny takes her under her wing and Angela gets a fab new hairdo, a fab new make-over, and an expensive and stylish new wardrobe, before they hit the town for the night.

Thus begins the start of something new and wonderful for Angela - she meets two great men who she falls in love with instantly, gets a job writting an online blog for a fashion magazine, moves in with Jenny, and buys the most beautiful bag she's ever seen. The only thing is, is she ever going to go home?

As time moves on Angela falls more and more in love with New York, but knows that she will have to make some decisions soon - Which man does she want to stick with - the wall street banker, or the rock star? and where does she want to stay - New York or London?

This book is a really fun, girly read, and certainly something to pack in your suitcase if you're going on holiday! Dieters and chocoholics beware though - you may find the description of chocolate cookies, hot chocolate, chocolate truffles and chocolate cheesecake a little hard to resist!
Great chick-lit read.
