What From Notting Hill with Love...Actually is about:
She was a girl, standing in front of a boy...
Movie fanatic Scarlett O'Brien dreams of a life as glamorous and romantic as all the big screen flicks she worships. When a chance house-sitting job in iconic Notting Hill comes along, she knows living in one of her favorite movie settings is an opportunity too good to pass up. Leaving behind her skeptical friends, family, and fiance, Scarlett heads to London and finds herself thrust into the lead role of her very own romantic comedy. But can real life ever be just like the movies? Larger-than-life new friends, a handsome but irksome new neighbor, and a mystery from her past may prove to Scarlett that living her life like a RomCom is more complicated than she thought!
If you dream about living in England, think Colin Firth is indeed Mr. Darcy, and devour all romantic British movies and books, then I most certainly think you would enjoy this completely adorable romp!
This book had me reliving some of my favorite movies all through the eyes of Scarlet. I loved how the author weaved Scarlet's favorite movies into her real life situations. It caught my imagination and kept me totally engaged!! I seriously didn't want this one to end.
Recommend? If you said yes to any of the above this book is for you!!! Fun, fun, fun, and a sweet romance mixed in!
