Review – Big Sexy Love by Kirsty Greenwood

OMG! How funny is this book!!!!

From the minute I started reading Big Sexy Love, I couldn’t stop smiling.  I snorted at times, I tittered from time to time, and I roared with laughter at others times.  Kirsty Greenwood is flipping hilarious! She’s also a genius because there were some staggeringly touching moments in this book, where I thought my heart was breaking in two.

I absolutely loved the two characters of Olive and Birdie.  Two best friends FOREVER who would never be parted, not even by death.  The friendship that these two had, is that once in a life time friendship which is really rare and incredibly precious. And beautiful.   One minute I felt like I was Olive and the next, I thought I was Birdie.  I got right inside the hearts and minds of both of them.

Olive just seemed to get into trouble whatever she did and even the simplest of tasks became a hilarious caper that you had no idea, how it was going to end.

The book gripped you with its humour from the start, tipped you over the edge with its emotion and entertained you perfectly, right from the very first page.

I salute you Kirsty Greenwood.  An incredibly talented writer, with a huge gift for laughter.  You should really be on the stage.  A fantastic book, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to brighten up any day.

About the book

Olive Brewster is a scaredy cat. She doesn’t do new or risky. She’s happy enough with her job at the local market, it’s cool that she has no boyfriend to fret over, she even likes that she still lives in her childhood home. No drama, no fuss, no problems. Everything is fine. Super duper fine.

Except … Olive’s best friend in the world​, Birdie, is dying.

Birdie has one final wish. She wants to track down her first love, Chuck, and because she’s stuck in the hospital she needs Olive’s help to do it. But there’s a teeny problem: Chuck is somewhere in New York and Olive has never even left her home town, let alone roamed the crazy streets of Manhattan.

As if the big city isn’t scary enough, Olive has to contend with Seth, a cocky comedy TV writer who thinks she’s a joke; Anders, a bored socialite who’s taken a shine to her; and the fact that no matter how hard she tries to track down Chuck, he doesn’t seem to want to be found.

Can Olive learn to overcome her fears, abandon her old safe routine and fulfil her best friend’s last wish?  It’s going to take extra bravery, one badass attitude and a whole lot of Big Sexy Love to make this happen …
