My wife loved Losing the Plot and talked me into reading it. I didn’t think it would be my thing but I loved it as much as she did. Losing the Plot is very funny and the characters feel real and believable. I read it in one afternoon, it was a real page turner. The story has a lot of twists and turns that kept me guessing and I could picture everything in my head. A great read. I highly recommend it.
This book had me goofy smiling and laughing out loud! Classic romantic comedy!! I have to say that I absolutely adored this book! It was such a cute, cringeworthy, fun read. Can this please be made into a movie?!! Preferably a Hemsworth in it!!
The main character, Vanessa, is awkward and sweet. I loved her interactions with her mother and her two sons. I did cringe at some scenes, but they are also the scenes that gave me a good laugh. Throughout the book Vanessa is suing her idol, Charlotte Lancaster, for plagiarism, attempting to date and working through family problems, this ensures that hilarity and drama unfold.
Marcus Stafford is the mandatory romcom perfect man. He’s gorgeous, successful and ripped (See, perfect for a Hemsworth!). But, is he what he seems to be? Oh, Charlotte is also his ex. What could possibly go wrong! Haha.
Then there is the goofy, affable sidekick, Dave Rendall. His clothes aren’t right, he spills food on himself and he’s kind of a bumbling mess.
As most romcoms, this book is predictable and cliché. Nevertheless, it is such a funny, adorable read. The author has done a fantastic job creating relatable characters, scenarios and family dramas. This is Elizabeth Coleman’s debut novel and I really enjoyed her writing. The book is such a fun, easy read that hooks you in from the start! I will definitely be picking up all future books from this author. I highly recommend this to everyone! Especially for lovers of romantic comedies & romance/ contemporary fiction.
I would like to thank Allen & Unwin and the author for providing me with a copy of this gorgeous book. This has in no way affected my views or opinions of the book or the content of my review
