This book was a great surprise, I was looking for something lighter and the blurb enticed me to give this book a go.
Sarah Burrows is at a low point of her life. Her boyfriend of a few years has suddenly left with no explanation, leaving her with a hefty mortgage to pay and her job at a women’s magazine is not really satisfying her journalist dreams. Her break comes when she manages to trick her boss into letting her investigate the story of a disappearing rock star. Flying to some well known European destinations sounds too good to be true but she’s swathed when she is joined by playboy photographer Nick, who just happens to be an old one night stand and a friend of her ex boyfriend. And then suddenly things start to get a bit dangerous...
I found this story really well written with some great characters (some we love to hate). There was entertaining banter between Sarah and Nick and I loved the Australian slang used. ie ‘oh bugger’ (hmm, I use this a lot) and ‘of course it’s locked, you nong’ (I haven’t heard the word ‘nong’ for so long!) There were a few more that brought a smile to my face. Obviously you do have to suspend belief a little bit, especially as Sarah makes some silly decisions but on the whole this was a really fun read. I’m impressed with this debut story and I noticed that the author is a local to me, so I’ll be watching for more from her.
Thank you to Netgalley and the Publisher for a copy to read
It is full of adventure, lots of humour, and just lots of fun.
Sarah and Nick's story could have fallen into the clich`d and predictable, however it didn't. It was smart and funny and kept me intrigued from the first word to the last.
I adore Sarah, I love how she goes for what she wants, I love her bite and snark when it comes to Nick.
The story is well paced, and turning each page, I never knew what trouble our lovelies were going to find them in next. The characters are well developed, and there is plenty of growth in themselves and their relationship as the story progresses.
Another thing I liked was that this story wasn't just all the romance, all the time. I mean, Sarah and Nick were in wonderful romantic cities in Europe, and at times couldn't even stand the sight of each other. There was so much more to this story than just a love story.
If you have a few spare hours and want to dive into some pure fun and escapism, read Hot Pursuit.
I can't wait to see what Ms Freeborn brings us in the future.
This book kept me entertained and intrigued from beginning to end with captivating characters, action, suspense, drama, and mystery as wannabe investigative journalist Sarah Burrowes and egocentric photographer Nick Archer chase rock star Chris Ford all over Europe. This is the first book I have read by Rebecca Freeborn and I look forward to more from this talented author. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley and this is my unbiased review.
