Book Review: The Summer Job - Lizzy Dent

Book Review: The Summer Job - Lizzy Dent

(AD-PR product)


Have you ever imagined running away from your life? Well Birdy Finch didn't just imagine it. She did it. Which might've been an error. And the life she's run into? Her best friend, Heather's. The only problem is, she hasn't told Heather. Actually there are a few other problems...

Can Birdy carry off a summer at a luxury Scottish hotel pretending to be her best friend (who incidentally is a world-class wine expert)?

And can she stop herself from falling for the first man she's ever actually liked (but who thinks she's someone else).


I absolutely loved this! Lizzy Dent has crafted a perfect character in Birdy - she is funny, relatable and real! This is such a fun read, littered with numerous other characters who really bring the story to life. I enjoyed how there was a romance storyline but it wasn't the sole purpose of the book, Dent got the balance just right!

Friendship and family (in all its shapes and forms) is the centre of this book. Birdy and Heather have such a strong foundation and it's clear to see to the reader despite heather not featuring too much in the book. It's also lovely to see the characters grow and come into their own by the end of the book without it being cliche!

I'd definitely recommend it to fans of The Switch by Beth O'Leary.
