Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend - Jenny Colgan
Join her as she starts life all over again: from cleaning toilets for a living to the joys of bring-your-own-booze parties; from squeezing out that last piece of lip gloss from the tube to bargaining with bus drivers.
Review - This was the light relief I needed after the last book I read. And bang went my reading plan for the rest of May.
I enjoyed this book, I'm not big on chicklit as a general rule but this was light, funny and had the necessary ingredients to make it work. You can imagine the privileged being rather naive about how the less fortunate mass of the population live, managing for themselves. I was a little surprised about Eck, without spoiling the review I am not going to elaborate. However the outcome was fairly predictable. 3*
