I started this book almost two months ago, but it kept making me angry and then the loan ran out on Libby. I borrowed it again a couple weeks ago and after I finished reading all the other things I had on my Kindle, I decided to finish it.
Angela Clark is still dumb, makes on the wrong decisions, and drinks way too much to be an adult. At the end of the last book, she found out her visa was being cancelled because she didn’t have a job with an American company. That’s still a thing in this book and she does everything possible to not have an adult conversation with her boyfriend about it. Everyone suggests that she marry him (even though I’m pretty sure that’s not how it works post-9/11), but she doesn’t want to even tell him she’s losing her visa, much less ask him to marry her because even though they say “I love you” and LIVE TOGETHER, what if he doesn’t like her anymore? I just can’t.
There’s some fun stuff about Vegas in here, even if they stay in a fictional hotel, which made me miss my friends and our annual trip to Vegas (canceled this year because of stupid pandemic!). But there was just so much avoidance, brand name-dropping, phone destroying and other annoying behavior that I think I’m done with this series. I usually like to finish a series, but like with the Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella, helpless, flailing heroines turn me off. I liked the other book by Lindsay Kelk I read last year, so I’m not ready to write off the author. But Angela Clark, we’re done. Wish you well.
