"I Heart New York" by Lindsey Kelk:
When you're running away from a broken heart, there's only one place to go...Adjusting tiaras at the foot of the aisle, Angela and her best friend prepare for the wedding of the year. But events don't go as planned. And when a girl is in possession of a crumpled bridesmaid dress - and can't go home - New York (for the very first time) seems like an excellent idea. Angela's new friend Jenny Lopez gives Angela a whirlwind tour of the city that never sleeps, and a makeover. Who hasn't dreamed of starting afresh with a sassy New York wardrobe, a new haircut and a trip to the make-up counter? Before she knows it, the new Angela is getting over her broken heart by having dinner with two different boys. And, best of all, she gets to write about it in her fabulous new blog. But it's one thing telling readers all about your romantic dilemmas. It's another trying to figure them out for yourself! (Summary courtesy of Goodreads.)

Melissa P:
I heart Lindsey Kelk and I heart this book. It was fun, light, and inspiring.

Melissa A:
A cute story that I enjoyed reading. See my review for more details.

I've never been to NYC, but I know of several gals who have basically rewritten their lives in the Big Apple! Maybe I'll head there for a weekend when I need an attitude adjustment!

I love this book! I totally got it because of the cover, only to find out the US cover is blah. But the book itself was great, exactly the kind of writing I love. I heart this series!! :D

I was put off by some comments about typos in these books on amazon. I'm sure they're good but call me picky that does put me off.

Bec, typos and grammatical errors put me off too. It is a great distraction. My eyes are extra sensitive to such errors since I am a copyeditor. However, I'm going to try reading the I Heart series. I've heard great things about the series and enjoyed her recent short story.
