News From The Nail Bar - Book Review

New From The Nail Bar
By Christy Powell

Rebecca Harris is a single mum trying to bring up her four year old daughter, while running a company of unreliable staff, nightmare builders, demanding customers, a disastrous love-life and an over bearing boss.News from The Nail Bar is a romantic comedy set in an office of a nail bar company in London. The book follows Rebecca's extremely rocky course as she navigates disaster after disaster leading up to a potentially catastrophic opening party.

This book is told through e-mails and it keeps you wanting to turn the page! I have recently been on a trend of reading heavy books with a lot of drama and trauma. I was certainly ready for something light and hysterical and this was it. 

What I love about this book is how relate-able it is. Rebecca is your best friend pouring her heart out about all the things that are going so wrong in her life. We can all relate to the chaos that ensues with being a mom and having a career. But her interactions with her coworkers make you laugh out loud! 

I would highly recommend this book for anyone who is looking for a good laugh. The author has a way of mesmerizing you with her crazy life. It made me appreciate how boring my own life is.
