I Heart New York

Lindsey Kelk, Harper, $13.99 trade paper (320p) ISBN 9780062004352
In Kelk's debut novel, rife with familiar chick-lit tropes, Londoner Angela Clark discovers her fiancé Mark's infidelity at her best friend Louisa's wedding and impulsively hops a plane to New York the next day, funding her trip with cash from their joint account. After checking into a fancy hotel, she's befriended by concierge Jenny Lopez, who seems to have nothing better to do than take Angela on shopping sprees and gush about how she's become her hero. Meanwhile, bland Angela curiously attracts several charming, attractive men, eventually having to make a rich man poor man choice between banker Tyler Moore and musician Alex Reid, equally handsome. Angela begins making a startling amount of money writing a blog that documents her experiences in the big (sex and the) city, and soon she's faced with a dilemma: stay in NYC with her new life or head back to England, where she's been offered a fabulous magazine job? Will she hold the interest of those amazing men? Will she have to grow up and face people from her past? Perhaps designer bag-crazy, extraordinarily lucky Angela has something else going for her. Unfortunately, readers will never know. (Sept.)
