A Little of Chantelle Rose by Cristina Hodgson #Review @HodgsonCristina @NeverlandBT #BlogTour

Thank you for joining me on the blog tour for A Little of Chantelle Rose by Cristina Hodgson. This is my second stop on the tour you can see an excerpt on my previous post here

First of all let's take a look at the book...

About the book

A little of Chantelle Rose

At the age of twenty-four, Chantelle Rose has all a city girl can expect: a tiny bed-sit in South London, a lousy poorly-paid job, a tyrannical boss, and quite a few exes added to an ever-growing list.

Desperate for change, she becomes an extra in a seedy crime film. When that leads to the opportunity of a lifetime – a role to play with a million dollars to win and seemingly nothing to lose – she accepts without thinking twice. After all, what could possibly go wrong? In any event, she´ll earn enough to buy her dream home, set up her own business and never worry about money again.

And what about love? Two men have won her heart: Robbie – sultry, silent, mysterious; and Lionel – Hollywood heart-throb, charm, wealth, adventure.

But who can she trust? Who is bent on scaring her away, and why?

There seems to be more at stake than just her heart. Will a million dollars be worth it?

My Review

When I first started this book I really wasn't sure what direction the plot was going to take. I guess I was just swept away into this crazy world just like Chantelle was. I think it's safe to say that the story is a little on the far fetched side but I think I had already guessed it would be after reading the blurb. To be honest I just sat back and enjoyed the way Chantelle's life suddenly changed and got more complicated. There were a few funny situations as Chantelle couldn't seem to stop herself from getting into various situations.

Chantelle is a fun character who speaks her own mind and has an abundance of one liners. She has a strong and outspoken personality which I found to be lots of fun to see play out.

Whilst reading I really felt as if I had been whisked away on Chantelle's crazy journey to stardom with her. There is a little bit of mystery which made the storyline interesting and added a bit of intrigue. The story kept me on my toes as it was pretty unpredictable at times and it was actually a nice change to not really know where the story would take me next. Cristina Hodgson has created a pretty unique and entertaining character that made me eager to find out how it would all turn out for Chantelle in the end. If you just want to lose yourself in a book for a few hours then A Little of Chantelle Rose could be perfect for you.

Fun and just that little bit different!
