Settling down for a 24-hour flight to Australia, Lucy finds a text message on her phone from a woman claiming to have slept with her boyfriend, James, four times in the past month. Trapped above the Pacific, she questions everything about their relationship, but when she finally calls him, James reassures her that it was only his friend playing a joke. James is gorgeous and successful and Lucy adores him, yet at her best friend Molly’s wedding in Sydney, she finds herself having doubts and is keeping an eye on Molly’s brother-in-law Nathan. Nathan is a happy-go-lucky surfer boy with no prospects, no place to live, and an almost-girlfriend in tow. Suddenly, Lucy finds herself caught between two distant continents and two very different men.
So I read Lucy in the Sky while on holiday. I just loved it. Just as you’re about to get on a 24 hour flight is not the best time to find out your boyfriend is cheating on you, so to say Lucy’s flight was eventful is an understatement. I instantly hated James and thought his explanation was, essentially, crap. I was sitting there screaming, “don’t believe him he’s lying!” Nathan on the other hand…..Sorry got a bit carried away thinking about Nathan there. He’s hot, he’s fun and he surfs. I mean do you really need much more in a man. I loved how much description there was for both London and Sydney. Paige has clearly spent a lot of time in both locations. I enjoyed Lucy and Nathan’s jokes. I thought it was cute. This is a great chick-lit read that will have you hooked from the beginning.
