    1. Katy Carter is a secondary school teacher who dreams of being a bestselling author and secretly scribbles down her novel (a historic blockbuster) whilst in school meetings. Katy is also a huge fan of grabbing herself her own romantic hero and thinks she’s found him in James, her fiance. However when a dinner party for James’s work colleagues goes disastrously wrong – with help from a lobster named Pinchy, a red-setter named Sasha and a cactus – Katy finds herself unceremoniously dumped b [...]

    3. Rating: .5/5 starsDid not finish reading; read 101/408Okay, here's the deal. I try not to judge a book by its cover, and if I did with this one, I never would have picked it up. It's pure hot pink with a childish feeling, a pair of sneakers, a wine glass, and a lobster on the cover.When it comes to books, I give it about 100 pages before I decide if I'm staying along for the ride or getting off at the next stop.Needless to say, I have gotten off this bus and do not see myself taking this route a [...]


    4. It was cute. However, and I hate to seem bit-picky but this must be said, it was just a shade too long. Do not get me wrong, it was funny, deliriously so in fact, and anyone who reads my reviews knows how smitten I am with these kinds of British rom-coms. I love the slang: "cocked up" or "sod off" or "flip the v". But this was like too much of a good thing. It was so overwhelming with plot points: bad fiancé, male BFF, gay bestie, female bestie with marital probs, dating a celeb, being blackmai [...]


    5. I absolutely loved it! At first there were times I just wanted to smack Katy in the head, but throughout the book she goes through a lot of things and she really grows up, and she's so likeable and funny that it's impossible not to adore her.Furthermore the book is really funny, cute and has a handful of amazing characters, not just Katy. And I loved all the books/tv/movies references. It's been such a marvellous reading for Christmas ;DIf you like chick lit you can't miss Katy Carter


    6. Really enjoyed this book - it was funny and rolled along at a great pace. Loved Katy and her chaotic life and cannot wait to read the sequel.



    7. KATY CARTER WANTS A HERO 📖❤️ There's something very enticing about the life of a single woman in her late twenties/early thirties living in London. Honestly speaking it took me a while to get into this book. I hated how long her toxic relationship with James went on, but unfortunately that's the reality of how these relationships tend to go. Despite being treated like a doormat. Katy goes as far to defend him against Ollie.Ruth has done an amazing job in creating a villain out of James be [...]




    8. Katy Carter is no domestic goddess — she's scatterbrained, needs a fire extinguisher at the ready when she's cooking, and falls off the diet wagon on a daily basis but as like everyone, she fantasizes of a romantic hero of her own. Katy has a job as a English teacher but she is interested in writing historical romance novels than teaching or staff meetings. So, this is Katy Carter and didn't you like her characterization just by reading her introduction! I absolutely enjoyed her. The book by M [...]


    9. Katy is a disillusioned English teacher, who writes her historical bonkbuster during staff meetings. Katy thinks she's found her perfect man in James, and due to this she blithely ignores the evil jibes of his mother and his demands that she becomes the perfect hostess to support his efforts to get a promotion. A disastrous dinner party including her best friend Ollie, his red setter, a cactus and a lobster called "Pinchy" leads to James deciding that Katy is not suitable wife material even if h [...]


    10. I really enjoyed reading this chic lit about Katy’s journey to find her very own hero. It’s one to read while laying on the beach – pure escapism! I read it during the last week of term and it kept my spirits up enough to tackle the countdown of each day.This isn’t your run-of-the-mill chic lit though. We already know she finally falls into the arms of her hero but I can guarantee you haven’t read similar plotlines in quite this way. The style of writing that gets you to the end will c [...]


    11. Katy Carter, die Protagonistin des Buches, ist verlobt mit dem Investmentbanker James. Sie unterrichtet an einer Schule und während den Lehrerkonferenzen langweiligt sie sich schon mal, sodass sie in ihre Liebesromanfantasiewelt abdriftet. So kann es auch mal passieren, dass sie ihre Fantasien in ein Schülerheft kritzelt. Die große Hochzeit mit James rückt immer näher und die Ereignisse überschlagen sich schließlich bei einer Dinnerparty für James Arbeit für die Katy kochen sollMir hat [...]


    12. This one was just okay for me, the story drug on a bit and at times the concept seemed forced. I don't know, maybe I'm just not meant to like the ordinary girl gets famous for no reason plot line, since I have been flipping back and forth between this and Sarra Manning's "It Felt Like a Kiss" and they two had similarish plots going on and both ended up being kind of blah for me. I think I was expecting more and wanted more of the plot line to focus on Katy's writing and have her popularity and f [...]


    13. This book had me in fits of laughter. I read the first 40 or so pages in my English silent reading lesson and found myself in tears of laughter. I had to control myself laughing as when Ollie brought his cousin it just was hilarious. Then all of Katy's trouble with James, I felt for her, I really did. i finished this book 10th November and ever since then I have missed the characters. I keep thinking what's going to happen next for Katy and Ollie and then realise I have come to the end. A truly [...]


    14. Wow. Funny. Although a little too "edgy" for me, like the author didn't know what to do with some situations, some people Very funny language, but some of the funniest phrases were repeated too often, and I have met them in the "The Hen Night Prophecies" as well. I know they are really, really funny but I guess one should not use them too often? I hated James and his mother from the spot, and sometimes was angry with Katy's naivety, really, a girl should not let anybody to treat herself like Jam [...]


    15. Some laugh out loud (ok, more like chuckle or giggle, but you catch my drift) passages make out for the repetition of others. And the line "the only gay in the village?", in an allusion to Little Britain, would mke me feel like a sister in arms anyway. The author did make a clear effort of varying patterns and adding some new elements to the old chick lit, but we allknow what we are looking for when we are choosing such titles, don't we? So there it is. Ollie is adorable, and it was a nice coupl [...]


    16. A fun story that had me laughing most of the time due to some ridiculous circumstances but the scenarios I could totally imagine happening in a kind of Stephanie Plum kind of way. In particular loved the scenes with Pinchy the lobster in it, was glad the useless guy got rejected by the main character, and that a long time friend became the romantic interest even though it took 237ish pages for the main character to realize she had liked him all along. A light hearted story that was worth reading [...]


    17. I was a bit disappointed by this book.I had troubles liking the main character - she really was annoying at the begining: moaning about her weight while stuffing her face with biscuits, etc And it was pushed too far sometimes: who would rescue a lobster and hide it in the bath?Then we know for many chapters that she's in love with Ollie, but she doesn't know it - come on, are you stupid? Just like in movies, I wanted to shout at her "open your eyes for god's sake"!So the word is: disappointed


    18. First review:Kathy is lovely, althrougth at the beggining she looked very blind because her love. But when James broke her notes I was truly angry with him. And her fantasies are hilariousI liked Ollie, but I get annoyed he always was interruped when he was going to confess. Gabriel, poor scared baby he went all wrong. I read something similar in "I love Las Vegas".Nina and James deserved each other.


    19. I wouldn't say I actually read the book more like skimmed through most of it and read some. The story line was good but I just found the main character kinda annoying, which is odd since I'm one of those romance readers with their head in the clouds also. I loved Ollie, Franky, Mad and Jewels. And I wanted a more satisfying (ok, sinister) ending for James. I can't say I was totally engrossed in the book but it had it's moments.


    20. I thought this was a cute, fluffy, easy to read book at first. Yes it was predictable, but it made me smile and kept my interest. Eventually it started dragging though and was actually hard to finish. I felt like the last 75-100 pages were a repeat of the rest of the book and the author was really trying too hard. If it would have ended sooner I would have rated it higher, it just got really boring by the end. Would not read this again or recommend it even though I enjoyed the first half.


    21. easy breezy story that despite it's eye rolling predictability something kept me reading and I found that having such a predictable book in my hands was just what I needednd of like when someone says let's grab a coffee and you already had like 4 cups, you know you're not craving it but it tastes pretty good going down.


    22. Really enjoyed this - the pace was a little too fast / little too slow in some places, but the characters were mostly well-rounded, and the dialogue super-snappy. If you get a chance to pick this book up, do - it's lots of fun and will make you want to move to Cornwall (if only to have a pet lobster).


    23. Having read many of Ruth's more recent books - I love the Polwena Bay series - I wondered if I would enjoy her older books as much. I have to say I absolutely loved this book and shared laughter and tears along the way. I have pre-ordered the sequel 'Katie Carter Keeps A Secret', which is released in June, I can't wait.


    24. This book was kind of a push and pull for me. Some parts were a little too draggy, and I didn't really feel the drama. I did enjoy some parts, but then, it was just "meh". I guess I'd rate this book 2.5-3 stars.


    25. Was a cute book. The plot twist kept me reading because I always wanted to know what was going to happen next, and sometimes it wasn't what I expected. And although romance and chick lit, it wasn't too sappy for me.
