I'm delighted to be one of the stops on the blog tour for Air Guitar and Caviar by Jackie Ladbury. Today I will be sharing my review along with the chance to enter a giveaway to win a signed copy of the book.
First of all though lets take a look at the description of the book...
Busker Dylan spends his days pulling pints in the local pub and singing on the high street, waiting for fame to call. That suits him fine, until beautiful, but frosty, air stewardess, Scarlett, tosses some coins into his hat but ignores his killer smile and his offer of pizza.
He sets out to get the girl, but Scarlett isn’t in the right frame of mind to date anyone, let alone a penniless, if charming, busker boy.
Dylan's desperate for his big break, but will it bring him the happiness he longs for? And with Scarlett's past threatening to ruin her future, will Dylan be left to make sweet music all on his own?

I have really enjoyed my break over Christmas along with being able to just relax and take my time with reading some lovely books. Air Guitar and Caviar was one of these books and I'm delighted to be starting 2018 with a review for it. So what did I think..
To be honest I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I first started reading this book although I was pleasantly surprised to see how easily I found myself engaging with the characters. There is a lovely chemistry between Dylan and Scarlett although it's safe to say that there are definitely a few obstacles in their path. I have to admit that I was a little unsure about Scarlett to begin with but I loved finding out her back story, it gave her an extra depth and made her all the more likeable for it. Dylan is a true romantic and a dreamer which made for entertaining moments especially in his determination to ask Scarlett out. Even if it doesn't necessarily turn out the way he planned it. The pacing of the story is steady and flows pretty easily so I managed to read it over two evenings.
If you need a story that will make you smile then I can guarantee this is what you will find with Air Guitar and Caviar. It has a lovely sweet feeling that will easily draw you in along with hoping for that perfect happy ending.
A fun, sweet story with some loveable characters.
Four stars from me
With thanks to Rachel at Rachel's Random Resources for my copy. This is my honest and unbiased opinion.
Jackie Ladbury was desperate to become a journalist when she left school but was ousted within minutes on the day of the exam at her local rag because she'd forgotten to bring a pen.
Short and sharp lesson learned.
Her budding writing career was not on hold for long, though, as Jackie found herself scribbling love stories of pilots and 'hosties' while she flew in aeroplanes of various shapes and sizes as a flight attendant herself.
Fast forward a good few years and, after being short-listed in a couple of prestigious romantic writing competitions, Jackie decided it was time to discard her stilettos, say goodbye to the skies and concentrate on writing romantic novels, where the only given is a guaranteed 'happy ever after.'
