Dear Holly, isn’t it shocking…?
Things are finally going Holly Denham’s way: she’s in love, she’s getting the recognition she deserves at work, and her friends and family have graciously opted to avoid disaster for the moment.
Just when Holly is starting to settle into her new life, scandal erupts and Holly finds herself—and her in box—at the center of a gossip whirlwind that threatens everything she’s worked so hard for.
Written entirely in emails, this follow-up to the UK smash hit Holly’s Inbox will keep you glued to its pages as the scandal running rampant in the city threatens to ruin Holly’s hard-earned and long-awaited happiness.
Fun and gossipy and written by a man makes Holly’s Inbox: A Scandal In the City all the more intriguing. What I did read of Holly’s Inbox: Scandal In the City was clever and witty with brilliant and intriguing characters. If I found it a fun book, whatever made me stop? The entire book, all 544 pages are written in the format of e-mails. While I appreciate this new style, it is not one I care for. It could be my age or my avoidance of my own Inbox, but either way, the format became too tiring for me, even though I immensely enjoyed the voice of the characters through the emails. Holly’s Inbox: Scandal In the City is a sequel to Holly’s Inbox and while it is a stand alone novel, if the reader enjoys the formatting, I would suggest both books as they truly are fun.
