Katie Brenner has been determined to make a life for herself in the city and does everything she can think of to get her boss, Demeter Farlowe to notice her work. Demeter however instead of noticing Katie’s creativity uses her young employee to instead help her dye her roots and other menial tasks. Katie still stays determined she will make it and obtain the lifestyle she is jealous that her boss leads.
Just when Katie thinks things are starting to look up in her life though her boss decides to fire her. Having no where else to turn Katie returns home to the country with her family to help them start up a new business but keeping her jobless state a secret while she’s there. But just when Katie thinks she may have to confess to her losing her job she crosses paths with Demeter yet again.
My Not So Perfect Life was a fun contemporary romance by Sophie Kinsella. Katie was a fun character to follow as she tried to make her way in life on her own with a fun cast of supporting characters to go along with her. The story was often funny and always engaging waiting to see how things would turn out for Katie.
Another thing that made me love this story was the setting with Katie’s family in the country. They were setting up a “glamping” (glamorous camping) business which made for a fun place for a big portion of the story to take place. As much as Katie wanted to be a city girl it was nice to see her go back to her roots in this setting and really grow as a character.
Overall, really enjoyed this fun contemporary romance and watching the main character grow as she struggles to sort out her life.
