About the Book:
Meet Ellie Cooke. When it comes to all things environmental she’s, well, a bit ‘green’. It’s not that she doesn’t care about things like climate change and plastic pollution, it’s just that life has always got in the way of that sort of thing. But when the PR firm Ellie works for is taken over by keen environmentalist Nolan Reece, it’s clear that if she wants to save her job, she’s going to have to get serious about being green—or face being recycled. Going green is no walk in the park, though. It involves a lot of big changes, tough choices…and at least one case of accidentally showing your knickers off to your boss. Can Ellie do enough to save her job, and maybe do her bit to help save the planet while she’s at it? And what will Nolan think of her, now that she can’t stop thinking about him…?
I am a massive Nick Spalding fan so requesting this on NetGalley was a no brainer. Mr Spalding does not disappoint in this his newest book, I have always found myself laughing out loud at his wit in the stories he writes, and I urge you to read this (and all of the others) at your earliest convenience. Nick Spalding has a knack for taking an aspect of modern life, finding the humour but also writing the poignant and thought-provoking elements. Not only did I laugh, it made me think about my own carbon footprint. Nick Spalding continues to write extremely funny books with an underlying message.
As with most of Spalding’s novels the story is built around a simple general concept - here it is going green. Around the concept Spaulding writes a series of tangentially connected anecdotes. In his best novels these anecdotes have genuine laugh out loud moments...like this one did. The book confirms that Spalding’s writing is comic genius and actually demonstrates the skill in creating humour with an engaging plot and varied characters. Fantastic book, I loved every page.
Thank you NetGalley, Nick Spalding, Amazon Publishing UK and Lake Union Publishing for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
