Review: Who’s that girl? by Mhairi McFarlane

imageMhairi McFarlane is a new favorite author of mine. With two of her then three books was amazing it was impossible not to have high expectations on her newest book Who’s that girl?.

Edie get’s wrongly accused for kissing her colleague on his wedding day, when in fact it was he that kissed her. But for whatever reason she’s the only one who’s getting blamed for the incident. Left alone and accused she happily takes a job as ghost writer for a actor and moving back into her childhood home.
When life gives you lemons, you… get lemons. It doesn’t become a nice family reunion, instead her younger sister does everything in her power to get on Edies nerves. But at least Elliott Owen is somewhat of a nice guy and she get’s an unexpected friend in her elderly neighbor.

Somehow this book managed to actually live up to my sky high expectations, and I just love the journey Edie takes to self discovery. That’s actually a theme in McFarlanes books, maybe that’s why I love them so much. They shows you that you can always make something of yourself and be the person you want to be, not the one it feels like you should be. I felt really bad for Edie, and anger, that her former only friend is a huge pile of shit, that loves drama more than true friendship. Can I please punch him? In opposite I just want to hug Elliott and I wouldn’t say no to him if he showed up in my life. Just saying.
