In present day, Katy Cabot feels that her writing career is over and her personal life is also in shambles. Her best friend JoJo buys her a plane ticket to come to London for a visit. On a visit to the Heywood Hill book shop, Katy encounters a handsome stranger who is searching for the missing biography of Nancy Mitford. It just so happens that Nancy Mitford was the subject to Katy's senior thesis and she is intrigued by the idea of a missing biography.
Of course, the title of this book hooked me from the start. I was not familiar with Nancy Mitford or her family so that also sparked my interest. Katy, in particular, made me laugh out loud at times with her banter and the situations she would find herself in. If strong language bothers you, I would mention that the present day narrative does use some, but it also plays into the character development.
I enjoyed the unique plot of this story and found both storylines equally compelling. I can definitely see how this would be a great book club choice or could lead the reader into other books to learn more, since you could tie in other books about the Mitford family or even reading The Pursuit of Love and watching the film.
I received this book courtesy of the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
