A Romantic Comedy with a difference!
A-list singing superstar, Honey Diamond, has it all – the albums, the talent shows, the upcoming Hollywood film. But it’s her gentle light, endearingly shining through all the glitz and glam, that warms the hearts of so many. A shy girl, who’s only ever known fame, born into a world that’s not true to life. Will Honey ever experience the love she so knowingly sings about? Will the vindictive online gossip sites ever leave her alone?
Lost In The Starlight is the latest heartfelt romance from best-selling, award-winning author, Kiki Archer, peppered with her trademark laugh-out-loud humour and warming observations about falling in love
The book was written extremely well, the characters where very well thought through and the book had a very steady pace. I reckon this book definitely falls into the romantic comedy genre. There was more than one occasion I was full body laughing at the craziness of it all. Just like Archers other book ‘Too Late I Love You’ it had a real essence of British Comedy. Kiki Archer writes differently to a lot of Lesfic writers and it’s one of the many reasons I like her novels because they are fun and nothing is ever taking overly seriously (she’s genuinely writes some hilarious scenes) which is why many of her fans keep coming back for more.
This was a feel good story, one that was cute, honest and genuine. The romance between Meg and Honey was more fairytale love than of real life for me but hey I love a good fairytale. I was a little confused when Meg was all of a sudden called Margret but then it was all explained and ended up being a good anecdote that ties other subplots together. My favorite chapter was when Meg takes Honey on their first date to Ikea. It was very well written and hilarity leaked from the page.
The secondary characters where written extremely well and every time Diana, Honey’s Mother took ‘Centre Page’ I had images of a cross between Elizabeth Taylor and Jane Fonda dancing around in my head and it made me laugh. I won’t go into to much detail but the chapter when Meg and Honey are discussing their couples massage had me doubled over laughing… It’s all in the therapist’s name… too funny!
This is slightly off topic but I like books that make me sit back and think. Two of Archer’s characters did this because of their personalities are polar oppisites and that was Jo and Honey. Jo was the most epitome of a negative personality I have ever read but unfortunately she represents a large population of people who live their life only seeing the glass half empty and then there’s is Honey who see’s the positive in everything and try’s not to judge anyone… It was refreshing to have Honey be extremely positive throughout the book even when things are turned on there head. I think the one thing I will take away from reading this book is that we have a choice of who we have in our life’s and who brings us down. Quoting the very wise Kiki Archer …
“Some people don’t want to be helped, Meg, and there comes a time where you have to lift your hands and walk away.”
Ok so back to the book. Lost in the Starlight was a truly enjoyable and rather funny novel that I would definitely recommend. I’m looking forward to what comes next from Kiki Archer.
Quote of the Book:
“People connect, Sofia, in many different ways, but sometimes, just sometimes, you find someone who sparks your soul. Someone who makes you want to live life by their side.”
