White Lies by Emily Harper & Giveaway!

Imagine standing in line at Harvey Nichols waiting to buy the most gorgeous silk Gucci dress. The only minor problem? You can’t afford it, it's a size smaller than you are, and you have absolutely no place to wear it.
Meet Natalie Flemming: a twenty-something woman working in London for a fabulous shoe-designing firm, but the only thing they let her touch is the company’s tax forms. She has decided to give fate a vacation and takes the task of finding the man of her dreams (or Johnny Depp if he would just return her calls...) into her own hands.
She craves adventure, spontaneity, passion- or will just settle for a decent date.

Amazon

Natalie works in the Accounting department of a shoe company called Makka. They make expensive designer shoes. She actually loves designer wear, but unfortunately she didn't get the chance to work in the marketing department when she asked for a job there. Natalie has been very dependable with their numbers for many years, but it isn't where her passion lies. She has two very nice colleagues, so work isn't all that bad and it pays the bills, which is handy as Natalie loves new outfits. She's looking for the man of her dreams, but hasn't found him yet, which is why she's placed an advert to find her dream man. When the company hires Oliver because changes need to be made to make Makka more of a competitor on the market a lot of things suddenly change in Natalie's life.
White Lies is such an enjoyable read. Emily Harper's tone of voice is filled with irony. White Lies is fun. It's also a romantic story. Natalie is a great heroine. She's pretty and she wears the nicest clothes, but she also stumbles through life like we all do and I often had to laugh out loud while reading this book. I really liked the letters she writes to the man of her dreams at the beginning of each chapter. They are original and they make the story even stronger. When Natalie finally meets a nice man there are a lot of misunderstandings between them. She has her flaws and sometimes makes assumptions too quickly without trying to uncover the facts. I liked how the story developed and loved the ending. Oliver is kind and wonderful, but he's also a man with principles who lives for his work. There's a lot of very well executed chemistry and flirting. The fast pace and the witty style are making this quite entertaining. White Lies is a book that made me cheerful and I've recommended it to quite a lot of people already. Reading this story put a smile on my face and it made me very happy!

White Lies is currently free on amazon, download your copy as soon as possible. You also have a chance to win an ecopy of My Sort-of Kind-of Hero (I will review that later this week). Emily Harper will kindly donate her book to one of my readers.
