Loved it from the first minute onwards. It was clear to me, that Henry was in love with her and he almost told her. He really sounds like the perfect man, almost to good to be true. Well, his first attempts of flirting are a bit shaky, but then he gets them all. Why does Lucy feel jealous?

Shelves: books-read , for-review At 28, Lucy Tyler has a good job in a PR firm, a fantastic and caring best friend in Henry and has two equally great friends in Erin and Dominique. However the only part of her life that doesnt seem to be working for Lucy is her love life.
Particularly since she feels she needs to embellish everything she tells the men she dates, leading to a lot of disasters. Best friend Henry is equally as bad when it comes to dating and when he asks Lucy, Erin and Dominique to help him with an image makeover, At 28, Lucy Tyler has a good job in a PR firm, a fantastic and caring best friend in Henry and has two equally great friends in Erin and Dominique. Best friend Henry is equally as bad when it comes to dating and when he asks Lucy, Erin and Dominique to help him with an image makeover, something the girls begin with gusto.
Henry emerges a completely new and gorgeous man and soon has girls practically falling at his feet. I think her easy writing style is fantastic and it enables me to just whizz through her books with relative ease.
After finishing my latest book, I knew My Single Friend was going to be my next read. Another main focus of the book appears to be Lucy and her work life as well as Lucy and her love life. There is a lot of time spent at the PR company where Lucy works and I quite enjoyed all of the witty banter shared by those who work at Peaman-Brown. Because she embellishes details to all of her dates, she never really manages to hold down a relationship. Jane Costello has again managed to create some fantastic characters.
I actually really loved Lucy despite her name — chick lit authors, take note, I hate the name Lucy. She was fun and she would definitely be someone I would like to be friends with.
Sure, she lied a little during dates but the results were actually pretty hilarious. I actually also loved Henry, even pre-make-over. He was just incredibly sweet and the relationship between himself and Lucy was immensely believeable and it was great to go back to their early days of knowing each other and to see just how long they had been friends. Costello is definitely one of the best authors when it comes to creating a well-rounded set of characters.
In this case it was Lucy and I really loved her narration — she was funny and cringe-worthy but ultimately she was immensely lovely. What Costello does best, though, is being able to inject her books with so much warmth and humour. I absolutely loved the ending of My Single Friend and it reminded me of one of the endings of one of my favourite ever TV shows.
Jane Costello is a huge new talent in chick lit and long may she continue writing such fantastic books. Her books are so enjoyable and definitely have the re-read factor that lots of books lack.
