Jamie who she left at the altar; Jamie who has become hotter than she can recognize him from all those years ago; Jamie who with his new fiancé; the sultry burlesque star makes for one incredible catch and Jamie who with his new show just across from Natalie’s theatre has suddenly turned into Natalie’s biggest competitor. So what will happen now? Will Natalie be able to resist Jamie’s charm? Will she be able to tread the fine line between her professional and personal life? Will Miss Wrong ever find out who is her Mr right? To know the answers to all these questions, read this funny, romantic and cute little novel today!
“Miss Wrong and Mr Right” is what you can call a typical chick-lit and with the perfect blend of romance, fun, humour and adventure provide for an excellent read to the lovers of the genre. I simply loved the story which offers the best of both worlds – the country life of Devon and the uppity glamourous world of London’s Soho. The characters are also vivid and adorable including Jamie, Natalie, Sharon, Gran and even Tuppence and Benjamin. The best character is undoubtedly of Natalie’s gran though Natalie and Jamie are also at their charming best.
The climax, though the predictable happy-ever-after one, is pleasing and leaves the reader with a pleasant feeling. Robert Bryndza’s writing style is worth appreciating because of her ability to marry romance and humour in such a subtle and effortless fashion. Even the ‘Jamie being the competition’ angle is played out well making the fun never stop throughout the course of the book. Needless to state, I was intrigued by this book and loved every bit of it. I thus recommend this book to all my readers especially to all chick-lit lovers and rate it three and a half out of five stars.
