Publisher's Summary

She was just a girl, standing in front of a boy…wishing he looked more like Hugh Grant. Scarlett loves the movies. But does she love sensible fiancé David just as much? With a big white wedding on the horizon, Scarlett really should have decided by now.… When she has the chance to house-sit in Notting Hill - the setting of one of her favourite movies - Scarlett jumps at the chance. But living life like a movie is trickier than it seems, especially when her new neighbour Sean is so irritating. And so irritatingly handsome, too. Scarlett soon finds herself starring in a romantic comedy of her very own. But who will end up as the leading man?

Delightful!

I’m so glad that I ‘left my comfort zone’ and purchased this Romantic comedy. Usually, I seek out a good thriller, but the title of this book intrigued me, so I thought what the heck I’ll give it a try. I’m thrilled that I did, because From Notting Hill With Love...Actually was such a fun read/listen. If you are a fan of the movies Notting Hill, Love Actually, and Bridget Jones Diary (just to name a few great chick flicks), you will adore Ali McNamara’s debut novel. I also think that Finty Williams is the perfect narrator for McNamara’s book; she brought everyone and everything to life, and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Notting Hill. Having said that, I longed for more description of the area – the market, the stores, and some of the other homes in Notting Hill, but this is just me as Notting Hill happens to be my latest obsession.

Overall, I was very impressed with both the author and the narrator so I decided to join this great duo on another adventure – Bon Voyage! I’m off to New York...

Easy listening

Great if you love romantic films. An easy and enjoyable listen. Predictable, but then isn't all romantic fiction. :-)

Disappointing.

Struggled to finish. What started as very promising soone became predictable and cringe worthy. How can a woman be so stupid! Unfortunately I would not recommend.
