Who's That Girl? by Mhairi McFarlane

Amazon USA Amazon UK

Review by Suze

Edie is at the wedding of two colleagues when something unexpected happens that ruins her reputation completely. She’s forced to stay away from the office, to take a job as the ghostwriter of Elliot Owen’s biography. Elliot is a famous actor and at first he isn't easy to get along with. Which is another problem Edie can add to her long list. She and her sister Meg don’t get on very well and moving back into her father’s home is harder than she thought it would be.

Who’s That Girl? is a fun story about what happens when something unexpected ruins your entire life. Edie is a likeable main character and even though she has her flaws she’s strong and she’s resilient. I loved reading about her adventures with her difficult sister, her eccentric neighbour and the famous actor she’s writing about. I often had a smile on my face while I was reading this book. I think a lot of readers will recognize themselves in Edie which makes her approachable and it feels like she’s your friend. It’s brilliant when a writer manages to achieve that.

Mhairi McFarlane’s easy to read writing style and sense of humour are fantastic. Her stories have a wonderful flow and they are fast-paced. I found this story entertaining and sweet. I highly recommend this book, especially to people who are looking for a relaxing read with gorgeous main characters.
