Review: A Night in With Marilyn Monroe by Lucy Holliday


After dating the hottest man on the planet, Dillon O’Hara, Libby Lomax has come back down to earth with a bump. Now she’s throwing herself into a new relationship and is determined to be a better friend to best pal, Ollie, as he launches his new restaurant.
Despite good intentions, Libby is hugely distracted when a newly reformed Dillon arrives back on the scene, more irresistible than ever. And when another unwelcome guest turns up on her battered sofa in the form of Marilyn Monroe, Libby would willingly bite her own arm off for a return to normality.
But while she hasn’t been watching, someone else has filled the Libby-shaped hole in Ollie’s life and she realises she could be about to lose something that means everything to her. Libby doubts that Marilyn is the right person to offer her advice, but perhaps she should listen up, before it’s too late…



Review: aww I loved this book so much, I can't wait for the next in the Libby Lomax series. I read this book almost immediately after finishing reading A Night in With Audrey Hepburn, which I also loved, and I think that that was a really good way to do it. If you can I would totally loose yourself in a mini marathon of Libby Lomax and her fabulous friends! 

This was a lovely quick read and one you could totally escape into. There are a few events during the course of the book that made me feel a little tense and on edge just because Libby gets herself into such scrapes and I want it all to be better for her, but overall, it is a really light hearted read that you can escape into after work or for an indulgent duvet day! 

I really like the character of Libby because she is just so real. She goes through the things we could all go through. Granted, we don't get into such comedic situations as she does, but we've all had that ex that we know should be an ex but we're drawn back to, we all worry about careers and we've all been in the flat that turns out to be not quite what we expected! 

In terms of storyline, as with the previous novel in this 'series' you do have to suspend your disbelief slightly to get to grips with the fact that Libby has conversations and exchanges with Marilyn Monroe, wears her bracelet and takes fashion advice from her but overall this is a really sweet story and leaves things fabulously placed for the next book in this series. If you haven't read them yet the now is your chance to catch up because I am sure that the wonder that is Lucy Holliday will be bringing another luscious installment of Libby to our shelves very soon!
