Prada And Prejudice by Katie Oliver
Prada and Prejudice may have an awful title but, it’s a great rom-com read. Filled with fun and romance, it’s exactly what you want from chick-lit.
He’s a man in possession of a large fortune….but is he in want of a wife?!
It is a truth universally acknowledged that Natalie Dashwood loves to shop. After all, as the heiress to the renowned London department store Dashwood & James she’s been wearing designer shoes since she could walk! But a socialite’s life isn’t as perfect as you might imagine… Natalie’s spending is spiraling slightly out of control, her rock star boyfriend is engaged to someone else, and it seems the family business is in financial crisis. New high-flying business exec Rhys Gordon has been brought in to save the company from ruin, but what are his motives? And infuriatingly even a shoe-shopping spree can’t take her mind off his distracting and oh-so-charming smile…
PRADA AND PREJUDICE – MY THOUGHTS
It is a truth universally acknowledged that if it’s a Cinderella or Pride & Prejudice re-write then I am there. With bells on! So when I picked up this little gem at a charity shop, I was happy to curl up on a cold night and get stuck in.
It’s exactly what you would expect from a really well written rom-com book. Likable characters and a good solid boy meets girl story line. It was a lot of fun filled with drama and raomance. It was very enertaining and if you like your men stong, your women fiesty and a story line filled with enough content to keep your turning page after page, then Prada and Prejudice could be a great winter read for you.
I won’t lie, Natalie was annoying at times and the plot does get a little far fetched, but it was still great fun. It’s exactly what you expect and want from chick-lit. Afterall, it’s a formula that works.
Prada and Prejudice is available to buy on Amazon and for only £1.49 for the kindle edition, it’s a bit of a bargain right now.
