Originally reviewed at Novel Escapes

I had really high expectations for this novel, not quite sure why but I think it’s because I haven’t read an Australian Chick Lit book that I haven’t liked yet. I find them just a bit edgier than the norm and am always intrigued to read about new cities and intricacies of life in other countries.

E for England had some good points - I actually really liked the game-plan behind the title and thought it was both quirky and unique. I enjoyed the chil

I can tell you now that before last week I had never read any book where the hero and heroine meet while searching for a pair of knickers that blew off a balcony. But now I have – and that’s just how Hugh and Annie meet in E for England. This is a sweet but practical romance in amongst a messy breakup, two young children and a hero trying to atone for his previous sins.

Set in Sydney (I am loving all these Australia-based books I’m reading at the moment), Annie and her two children mo

More of a 3.5 than a 3 or 4.

Annie's husband left her and their two young children nearly a year ago, leaving behind only a note saying he needed to find himself. He has sent a few postcards, but no money, relegating Annie to moving in with a frisky coworker. She had to give up her plans for an MBA as she struggles to provide for her children.

Yes, life looks a bit challenging for her. The last thing she has any interest in is dating, so of course she meets Hugh, a handsome doctor liv

At First Sight: After almost a year of separation (and at least six months since she last heard of her soon to be ex-husband), newly single mom Annie is still quite pissed off at said ex, but trying to make ends met the best she can while caring for her two young children.

Her situation is far from ideal, though. She's barely making enough at her job, she hasn't been able to save enough to go back to school and she's currently crashing at a co-worker's apartment. The last thing she wants to do i

E For England by Elisabeth Rose

E for England is a sweet contemporary romance with memorable characters.

Annie and Hugh create an instant bond with the reader which intensifies as the story progresses. If like me you enjoy character driven romance this is for you. The secondary characters particularly the children enhance the story and provide reality based humour that every parent will recognise and enjoy.

The plot is reality based and doesn't provide the escapism I usually seek in a romantic novel but the depth and authenticity of the characters mad
