Ali McNamara has just released the cover of her debut novel FROM NOTTING HILL WITH LOVE…ACTUALLY on twitter (@AliMcNamara) and I have to say…it's beeyootiful. I love it. What's inside the cover sounds fantastic too.
Scarlett O'Brien is in love …with the movies. Utterly hooked on Hugh Grant, crazy about Richard Curtis, dying with lust for Johnny Depp, Scarlett spends her days with her head in the clouds and her nights with her hand in a huge tub of popcorn. Which is not exactly what her sensible, DIY-obsessed fiance David has in mind for their future. So when Scarlett has the chance to house-sit an impossibly grand mansion in Notting Hill ? the setting of one of her all-time favourite movies ? she jumps at the chance to live out her film fantasies one last time. It's just a shame that her new neighbour Sean is so irritating ? and so irritatingly handsome, too. As a chaotic comedy of her very own erupts around Scarlett, she begins to realise there's more to life than seating plans and putting up shelves. What sort of happy ending does she really want? Will it be a case of Runaway Bride or Happily Ever After? The big white wedding looms, and Scarlett is running out of time to decide …
I'm a huge fan of Richard Curtis and RomCom movies, so this sounds like exactly my cup of tea. The book isn't out until November, but can be pre-ordered from amazon here
What do you think of the cover?
