"Twenties Girl"

by Sophie Kinsella, 2009, 669p (large print), rating=4

This had a little bit of drama and romance like the movie Titanic and some adventures and a whole lot of funny antics like the movie Ghost.  A surprisingly fun read.  I found myself chuckling often.  Also, just when you can guess what's up ahead, Ms Kinsella will do a switcharoo and go somewhere else before getting you to that correct guess, so the read wasn't boring.  It was fun to go back to the 1920s in London, England for a bit of dancing and fun.  It was heartwarmingly fun to read a beautiful love story.  It was especially enjoyable to arrive to a lesson that getting to know your family (particularly your elders) can bring enrichment in ones life.  This was a wonderful chick-kind of book.  Makes me want to check out a vintage store to get a flapper dress and feathered headpiece then go take a ballroom class and shake my bootie!!  Whoohoo!!

Book's synopsis:  Normal twenty-something women don't get visited by ghosts, do they?  When the spirit of Lara Lington's great-aunt Sadie appears at her own funeral, she insists that Lara find her missing necklace.  Lara, however, has a number of ongoing distractions.  Her start-up company is foundering and she's been dumped by the "perfect" man.  Lara and Sadie make a hilarious sparring duo, and at first it seems as though they have nothing in common.  But as the mission to find Sadie's necklace leads to intrigue and romance for Lara, these "twenties" girls learn some surprising truths from each other.
