I can’t help feeling embarrassed on the author’s behalf when she follows her debut with a book that may as well be a carbon copy of her first book. Bad Heir Day is Simply Divine repeated step-by-step. It’s embarrassing, because I can predict what the main character Anna would do based on what Jane did in the previous book. Predictable action, very familiar plot – hello deja vu. Can I have my six pounds back?
Anna decides to babysit rich tosser Cassandra who is a total bitch. Surprise! Just like Jane in that other book babysitting Champagne. Anna falls for guy who remains absent throughout the story, and cement their kisses after a misunderstanding involving Cassandra. Just like Jane did in that other book.
Whatever. I want my money back, I really do.
