Hmm. It was okay. I like Sophie Kinsella well enough - or, at least, I liked the first couple of Shopaholic books, and think she can be funny, so I thought I'd try it out for an easy read.
Twenties Girl is a chick lit ghost story of sorts. In an interview, Ms. Kinsella describes how the book came about:
My U.S. editor Susan Kamil had once said casually, "You should write a ghost story one day." This comment stayed with me for years. I loved the idea, but didn't know who my ghost could be. I've always loved the glamour and spirit of the 1920s, and the idea came to me of a flapper ghost. A feisty, fun, glamorous girl who adored to dance and drink cocktails and get her own way. I wanted her to be a determined character who would blast into the life of someone with no warning and cause havoc. I then decided she should haunt a thoroughly modern girl, with all the culture clashes and comedy that would bring.
