London Belongs to Me: A Novel by Jacquelyn Middleton. Kirkwall Books, 2016. 392 pages. ****
Reeling from an ugly breakup, Alex Sinclair, an aspiring playwright moves from sunny Florida to London. Believing that she belongs in the country of her birth, even though she has never lived there, Alex wants to start over and pursue her dreams. When the airline loses her luggage and her room turns out to be a closet in the apartment of a friend, Alex questions whether she should just go home and admit defeat. Meeting her favorite playwright, Alex once again is betrayed and experiences a panic attack much to her embarrassment. Will Alex find success and someone who loves and accepts her or will she be forced to return home when she runs out of money?
Enjoyable, easy to read novel of betrayal, love, and friendship. Middleton has introduced a lineup of likable characters and a believable plot. I love books that are full of drama, but give me hope that everything is going to turn out in the end. This is one of those books that you share with your girlfriends and suggest that they read it too.
I received a copy for a review.
