Lizzy Dent spent her early twenties working in Scotland in hospitality, in a hotel not unlike the one in this novel. She somehow ended up in a glamorous job traveling the world creating content for various TV companies, including MTV, Channel 4, Cartoon Network, the BBC, and ITV. But she always knew that writing was the thing she wanted to do if only she could find the confidence. After publishing three young adult novels, she decided to write a novel that reflected the real women she knew, who don’t always know where they’re going in life, but who always have fun doing it. The Summer Job is that novel.
This was a super story that I could just pick up and get right back into it, characters that even sounded like they were there. Well written, easy read for a first book so I am looking forward to the next one by Lizzy. The area this is set in sounds so lovely and makes you want to visit, in the summer though. I was pleased it didn’t load you up with all the details about wine but just enough to keep you interested and wanting to find out more. I had never heard of a sommelier before but when I googled it, the wine waiter came up lol Personally I think we should have more sommeliers as it is nice to know which wine would go really well with your meal.
Brilliant happy, funny story for the summer.
