Review of Among a Thousand Stars by Jo Bartlett - Four *

Review of Among a Thousand Stars by Jo Bartlett - Four *


When her mother turns up naked and proud during her first term at college, Ashleigh Hayes assumes that life can’t get any more embarrassing. Ten years later, with best friend Stevie at her side, and a successful career as a freelance photographer for monthly magazine Glitz, it looks like she might have finally got the hang of things. Only she seems to have inherited the embarrassment gene from her mother and her every encounter with new boss, Tom Rushworth, looks set to send her career spiralling backwards. Getting past their shaky start, Ashleigh and Tom embark on a relationship that was only ever meant to be a bit of fun. But when life, paparazzi and love-sick Labradors get in the way, they suddenly find themselves caught in a roller coaster ride of emotions.


Don't normally enjoy "glitterati" type books but was pleasantly surprised by this one.

I loved the contrast between Tom and Ashleigh and all the other people in their lives. Tom and Ashleigh are relatively normal but the other characters are way over the top - but in a good way! I also loved Carol and Stevie - must have been such fun to write about them!

Jo's writing style is very easy to read and I raced through the book. It seemed so many times as if Happy Ever Afters were not going to happen that I began to despair.

Loved the change of scenes - London, South coast and Vegas. The action moved seamlessly between the different places.

Will definitely look for more books by Jo.

Was given an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
