Will They Won’t They?
By Portia Macintosh
What it’s about?
When life goes off track sometimes the only thing you can do is go back to where it all began…
Emmy Palmer is the star of Bragadon Forest, the biggest fantasy series on TV; adored by the public, living the life of glamour and luxury in London.
But when scandal strikes, Emmy must escape the city and return to her seaside hometown to lie low and wait for the storm to pass.
Emmy’s agent decides it would be a good look to star in the community Christmas pantomime, but who else could be playing her leading man but her ex-boyfriend who she may or may not have ditched to move to London a decade ago…
As the show approaches, love and friendships blossom and the real question is – Will they? Won’t they?
What I think:
This is such a great read! There’s lots of holiday spirit without a complete festive overload which makes it perfect for pre-Christmas reading.
Emmy is such a fun character. Despite being the star of a hugely successful Game of Thrones style TV series – she plays Princess Adelina, a frog eating sexy warrior fairy princess – she is able to make fun out of herself and has remained close to her family, particularly her grandfather.
At the beginning of the book she is a bit lost. Her career is faltering after a scandal leads to her character being killed off in the new series and then she receives the news that her beloved grandfather has died. The timing gives her the perfect opportunity to take a break and re-evaluate where she is heading. She heads home and soon find herself swept back into local life.
Meeting up with school friends from her old drama group, she joins the cast of a local pantomime hoping to raise funds to restore the historic theatre in the town. She reconnects with old friends, including her will they wont they school sweetheart Scott. Years earlier, just as it looked like they were finally aligned, she quit university and headed off to pursue acting in London and this is the first time they have met since. Will the sparks still be there?
Or will she fall for Tel, her gorgeous neighbour who is managing the renovations of her grandfather’s former home? Will the new house be enough to lure her back from London.
There are lots of fun characters in this book especially Emmy’s family, the star of which is a very flirtatious aunty who gets into lots of romantic scraps.
Overall this is a fun, heart-warming read that is guaranteed to make you smile.
